Do you decorate for valentines day? I don't...or I haven't...until now. I admit it. I caved. How could I not? After seeing all these awesome, nontraditional, Valentine decorations?

I love the natural, rustic elements in all of these. With that in mind, and the fact that I wanted to use what I already had on hand, I had my mission. Lucky for me, all the organizing of craft suppies as I moved them from all over the house to my new craft room, unearthed a lot of things I'd long forgotten. Some hit the round file bin ;) Other stuff got donated to our homeschool group.
A roll of ivory paper twist almost got pitched, but at the last minute I changed my mind. That and a twig wreath, some pieces of cardboard and a scrap of burlap. My husband would have pitched it all in the round file. Not muah. Eat your heart out honey.
I'm in love...swoon. Now don't get jealous hon. I still love you too.
If you want a tutorial, leave me a comment and I'll post one later this week. Oh, by the way, feel free to pin these last two pictures...cause they're mine ;)
