Valentine's Day Art

So the day of love is less than a week away! 
I feel like a bad wife, because I have no idea what I'm getting my husband for Valentine's. 
I'm sure I'll figure something out. 

Time for V-day decorations! I'm usually not a holiday decorator, but I saw SO many cute ideas on different blogs that I decided to do a little something. 

Here's the coat rack in my entryway! (Please excuse the pictures.  They were taken with my phone at night)

So let's break it down. I got the "K" at Michael's.  It was $3! I actually got it for less than $3 because I had a 40% off coupon and this was the only thing I purchased that wasn't already on sale. lol. 

I got the two silver candle holders at Target on clearance for $1.50 each.  I really love the mercury glass look.  I made the red polka dot one! I got this idea from Prudent Baby's website.  Here's the link for the tutorial. This is SO easy and cute! 

I've seen lots of different framed "All You Need is Love" pictures.  I decided to make one of my own.  I found the font on dafont.com.  It's the Impact Label font. I printed it on plain printer paper. The frame is one of the plain wooden $1 frames from Michael's that I painted black and added some felt hearts to it. Easy peasy!

I made this one the other night. I've seen lots of Scrabble letter art and decided to make one of my own.  My Nana bought us a premium edition scrabble board from and estate sale and it was missing some letters so I decided to use the letters that were left. :) I love that they're maroon. I also checked e-bay and you can buy 100 letters for less than $10 with shipping.  Not bad.  I used some scrapbook paper for the background and attached the blocks with scrapbooking adhesive tape so that I can re-use the letters.

So that's it! I have some other plans for the scrabble letters and I'll post those projects as soon as they're done. 

Thanks for reading!



  1. Adorable! I love seeing others' decorating ideas and getting inspired. I LOVE the framed Scrabble letters!

  2. I like the scabble tile art. So far I have only used them on the holders that come in the game but one day I'll frame some. I've been keeping ideas for them.
