Good Morning, Lovely People! Kendall here!
I hope your week is off to a great start. Can you believe it is already February!? Now, I am not looking to press the gas and fly by with the year. I am looking to enjoy the year and take in all the joys it has. Smell all the flowers.
This week the Chaos home is preparing for the highlight holiday of the month, Valentines day ❤ Every year has been different for us. As young kids, mom used to make pancakes and hot cocoa in the morning. We each would receive something Valentines-ish, and dad would give mom her favorite flowers. SO SWEET!!!
This year, who knows what we shall do. Perhaps next week you shall see. Wink-wink.
This year we decided to do some crafting. Painted hearts and signs.
- Painted Wooden hearts.
These are simple. Wooden hearts, paint, brushes, and an idea.
Here we painted medium sized hearts in red, pink, or white, allowed to dry, then added a touch of sparkle! (I love a dash of sparkle) I did a couple ombre hearts, mixing the red and white. Paint the red first, go over just a hair, then paint white over the other side and blend in the middle.
2. Painted Signs
These signs we found last year discounted at Hobby Lobby, never underestimate a good sale! We bought several of these signs. The Florida looking background was not going to work, so I painted over the image in white, at least twice. Just need to make sure that the original image is no longer visible. Then I laid out my medium hearts on top, tracing with a light pencil mark.
Then painting the hearts in red, pink, and gold (Love the sparkle!)
Links to some sources! We also used Deco Art, Anita’s, and Delta paints, but whatever acrylic paint you like best is good too!
3″x2.5″ Wooden Heart: $0.69
7” sign: $2.99 on clearance
Acrylic Paint: $1.99 in Red, Pink, and Gold
Now to decorate the home with pops of Valentines love ❤
What is your Valentine’s Day tradition? Would love to hear from y’all.
