Valentine's {Favorites}

Here are a couple of my favorite Valentine's projects, crafts, decor and accessories:
LOVE-in' this heart made out of red glass gems. I painted a wood frame white and then decoupaged a cute paper on the front, glued the gems in a heart shape to another piece of decorative paper. Super easy... (I'm not sure where I found this idea- please let me know if you've seen it so I can give proper credit to whoever it is that inspired me!)
These darling hair clips from Eden's Flower Garden. The matching flower is actually a baby bracelet!!
I found these mailboxes at Target ($1) right after Christmas. I knew I needed some and could somehow dress them up. When I saw this post from the Crafting Chicks, I knew what to do!
Here are my mailboxes:
And I found little Jackson's the other day jammed full of cars and airplanes. I think he likes it :)
{Here are a few of my favorites from other craft blogs:}
Valentine frames from Eighteen25. She switches these frames out for different holidays all year!
This heart garland from Sweet Bee Buzzings. SO darling! I will definitely be making one with my sewing lesson girls next week!
Heart Wreath from Wise Old Owl Designs. I love the look of ribbon and tulle!
These pillows from Felt So Cute are darling- and wouldn't be too hard to make. Some of them are from used sweaters!
This conversation heart frame by Simply Crafty would be so easy to make and is so fabulous.
And a couple free printables to feature:
This darling frog printable from Shindig Parties would be perfect for handouts to friends or a Valentine party.
I love these holiday spins on Keep Calm and Carry On, this free printable from Lolly Jane would look great in any frame (but I especially love that one)!
Thanks for the fabulous blogs out there that keep me inspired and excited to try new things.
