Paper Hearts // Kerry's Monthly DIY Challenge

As soon as I took down the Christmas decor in my home, my heart sank a little lot. I instantly missed the cozy and full feeling that all of my Christmas swag brought to my home. So it was without hesitation that the Valentine's Day decorating commenced asap, which involved leaving up my mini-tree and replacing the Christmas ornaments with heart ornaments.

This year I was feeling pretty paper-crafty, so I made two super easy banners using my favorite mini clothespins, ribbon, and decorative papers {some glitter, some printed} purchased from my local Hobby Lobby all at 50% off. I printed out heart outlines and letter outlines in my favorite ofalltime font: Bebas. Then I spent about an hour tracing, cutting, arranging, and mini-clothespinning the banner together. And voila! Instant Valentine's Day happiness.

Have you DIYed any Valentine's Day decor? Do share!

This is DARLING!! I love it! you are so creative!!

I have to admit, I just took down Christmas this weekend. I got a late start putting it up, so I let myself enjoy it for a couple extra weeks. Yes, the apt feels empty now :(

I spent a lot of time finally hanging pictures to try to make up for the lack of tinsel, so it's feeling a little more homey now!

Love the garland on the mirror. What a cute idea! I totally understand what you mean about being sad taking down Christmas decorations. I was bummed!

Sooo cute! Were you, like, a former elementary school teacher or something? ;o) You crafty.

This is inspiring me to begin decorating for more holidays! Though the Christmas set up and break down is hard enough for me to juggle sometimes!
