DIY Valentine's Art and a Fun Craft

Check this out, I created my own one of a kind framed wall art.  This is how I did it...

I made a Valentine's mobile that hangs above my kitchen table.  I used left over foam hearts from the centerpiece I made a couple days ago.  

Then I snapped pictures of my craft.  I used PicMonkey to modify the look of the photos and created this art (pictured below).  It's so cool that we can make our own one of a kind photo art with just a few simple adjustments to the photo! 



Here is the mobile I made for above the kitchen dining table.  I had a branch hanging centered over my kitchen table that I had put up for Christmas to hang ornaments from.  I decided to keep the branch up to use for all of the different holidays throughout the year.   I used fishing line to hang a couple of small mason jars (to put battery operated votive candles in) and I stapled the foam hearts together to create the center hanging.  I used two sided tape to attach the hearts to the mason jars.  It was super simple.  The entire project took less than 10 minutes.




This last photo is the photo I modified to create my framed wall art.  I love how it turned out!


Valentine's decorations don't need to be expensive.  Just a little creativity and you can come up with all sorts of cute ideas.

Until next time,
Happy decorating!
