Valentine Crafts

Do I admit once again that I totally thought I had already featured her?  I went so far as to tell her I didn’t see my featured button on her site.

Valentine crafts are all over the Get Your Craft On!  Do you decorate for Valentine’s day?  Are you already decorated?

Valentines Day Craft

I love this valentines day wreath she made from doilies and a plastic plate……..all while she was watching a movie.  I’m afraid it may not survive the rain here in the NW.  Even though I have a covered porch, I’m wondering if my heart would be sagging after a day.  I suppose I could put it inside……….now there’s a thought. DUH!Valentines Day craft

I love seeing the progression of her dining room.  Love that chalk board……..she made it of course.  Love how she switches up the plates for the season.

DIY Crafts

decorating the holiday tableHere’s a tip for all those plates she uses.

Plate Crafts

diy craft painting plates

Buy a few ugly ones at Goodwill and paint them.  I’ve seen people use spray paint, but she uses an enamel paint.  I like the way it looks.  So creamy. Cream Wear.

Most of the art in her house was created by her.  I think it makes your wall much more interesting.

Crafts for Decorating

wall art for sport fans

Why put something on your walls that everyone has?  You know you can create something original.  Here she used all her old sport tickets to create a collage.  She also suggests doing this with all kinds of tickets.  Concerts……..parking?  :)  Now that would be a conversation starter.


Since I’ve got your attention, I think you’ll enjoy these links too.

    Before you paint the plates make sure they are not collectables…LOL. That plate with the little people on it is a Hummell plate. Very pricey stuff from Germany. Other than that, I love everything!

    Love that wreath…is that what I’m supposed to do with the huge pack of doilies my mom sent Delaney last year for Valentine’s Day…I think so! AND the frame with the tickets!!! I have DUCK game tickets in a container from quite a few years and I was planning to do a shadow box for Dave for Christmas but never got around to it…looks like it’s time! THANKS for reposting this one, I missed it and definitely need the ideas now! :)
