As I mentioned yesterday, we tend to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family. The boys love making cards and decorations for the house and I decided to make some wall art to decorate the house for the weekend. We don’t have great plans but it is nice to make a bit of an effort.
You know me by now, I like easy and effective. These 3 cards are so easy to make that you could even make them with the kids. .
1 – I HEART U card
I wanted to make one card for all my boys but I didn’t want a busy front so I decided on a simple message.
I got one sheet of pink card and another red one. I cut the red one in half, I wrote my message on it and I cut it out.
I then covered the pink sheet with washi tape and I glued the red page on it.
It is a very simple idea but it is pretty and effective.
2 – I NEED YOUR KISSES Wall Art
This wall art is my favorite. I find it so sweet and all you need is a marker and some lipstick.
Write your sentence on a white card, put on lipstick, feel pretty and kiss the card.
3 – BE MY VALENTINE Wall Art
On a red card I stuck some washi tape on it and I cut the words out.
I then glued the letters onto a black paper for contrast and cut the words out and glued it again onto some white paper. Following my big monkey’s suggestion, I added a heart garland on top to make it (and I quote) extra special.
I love the contrast of the white, black and colors.
This wall art will be decorating our house over the weekend while we have breakfast together in bed, cuddle up in bed and watch some silly film in the afternoon.
What are your plans?
