I really love Valentine's Day!  Usually by mid-February I'm tired of the dreary winter days and Valentine's is a great pick-me-up.  As it's the first of the month, it's time to put out the Valentine decorations and time for a new craft.
I started with unfinished wood hearts that I got at Hobby Lobby and painted them with shades of red and pink.  I actually only used red and cream paint and marbled the two together as I painted.
Next, I drilled a couple of holes in the top of each heart.
And I visited my new love, my Silhouette, for some fun Valentine quotes and pictures.
Add a little ribbon or wire through the holes and I have a quick and cute decoration.  
This little shelf, in my dining room, gets a new look every month!  Today was also the day I put my LOVE blocks on the shelf too.  Since I didn't use all the little hearts I made, I have a couple of sweet gifts to give, and they're all ready to go!

What's new for your Valentine decor?
