So you know all those craft projects you have laying around that your kids do? The ones they are so proud of but you can only have so many of them hanging up and you just can’t bring yourself to throw them away (at least not right away). Well I have an idea for you that can transpire into some Valentines Day decor for your home. And make your kiddos proud that you used their artwork.
Last week the girls did some paintings. You know like five paintings each within 10 minutes. Well after they dried and sat on our kitchen counter for a couple of days I cut all different size shapes of hearts out of the paintings. Then I taped the hearts on some twigs I collected from our backyard. Do these look familiar? These are the same twigs I collected back in September for Fall decor, painted them silver for Christmas and we are still using them! Long live the twigs! Don’t be surprised if you see shamrocks taped on them in March. Anywho… tape those little puppies on your twigs, stick them in a jar, glass bottle or whatever you fancy and call it done! You have decorated for Valentines Day, your kids are happy because they have provided the original materials and you don’t have a stack of craft projects on your counter. Win. Win. Win.
