I am so excited to participate in this Valentine’s Day Garland Pinterest Challenge that is hosted by my new blog friend, Cindy. She blogs here and I love to visit. I have to tell you something. As my kids got older I pulled back on Valentine’s Day decor. I decorated for January and February and stayed with a winter mood until Spring. So this Valentine’s Day Pinterest challenge was a great reason to add a little Valentine’s Day back into my home.
Cindy chose Jenny’s garland for our Valentine’s Day garland inspiration. I love her mix of hearts and fluffy pom poms.
Valentine’s Day Garland
I love simple and since I already had my January decor I kept it uncomplicated.
A few years ago I purchased these concrete Valentine hearts. I purchased three to represent my three kids. And, odd numbers are a good rule of thumb when staging or decorating a home.
I found these cute little hearts at Target in the dollar section. I used a hole punch to make a large enough hole to string the hearts together to create Valentine’s themed garland.
These hearts sat on my desk for a week until I told myself not to overthink a Valentine’s Day garland.
This garland took me maybe four minutes and it fits in beautifully with my dreamy, winter hutch. Subtle.
I loved this Pinterest challenge because it got my creative juices going with how to blend winter and Valentine’s Day.
