A touch of love

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I'm not one that decorates much for this holiday, but small touches here and there can make a big impact.

This simple garland was made from construction paper and ribbon. I cut out the hearts in two sizes and strung them through a sparkly ribbon.

The remaining hearts that I didn't use in my garland, I hung from the chandelier in our dining room.

Instead of hanging a wreath on the door, I hung a heart. This was easy to make. I painted a canvas red, and then used modge podge to affix the heart to the canvas. I used a water proof modge podge I found at Michael's since I planned to hang this outside. The heart was cut out of paper that I marbled, but you could use just about anything; sheet music from a treasured love song, a classic love poem, valentine gift wrapping paper, or even the valentine edition of your favorite comic strip.

Adding these small touches around my home quickly made our home festive.
