Valentine's Day

Since I finally bought my own house (Yaaayyyyy) I am motivated to decorate it for various different holidays and occasions. I came across some old yarn, I was determined to learn how to knit, some last seasons Valentine's fabric and saw some chip board letters at Hobby Lobby, and was Inspired.  I have such a wonderful husband, great kids, and an overall great life, that I am finally happy.  I wanted something to go on my mantle, so this is what how I did it.

  • Chip board letters
  • Red yarn

I just wrapped the L and the V in red yarn

Next I took the Valentine's fabric and ripped it into a long one inch wide strip.  I just cut at the top and ripped it all the way down. 
Then I just wrapped it around the O and the E. 
I tacked everything with a hot glue gun to hold it in place.
And Voila!
