While I was “;working”; (i.e. scoping out the web for cute Valentine’;s day tutes) I came across this gorgeousness on Punkin Pattern. I’;m so glad I discovered this site, there’;s so much cuteness there! I asked the creator, Vanessa, if she would share the tute with uslace pillowcases, and she agreed. I see so many variations on this, I just love how it’;s sweet but not as saccharine as some traditional Valentines day decorations.

Blooming Heart Valentines Decoration

Here’;s a very quick Valentine’;s Day decoration. I did mine in about an hour (while sitting in front of the TV). You’;ll need some cardstock in various colors and patterns, foam (heart shaped), 2 sheets of craft felt, push pins (about 1″;), and a flower craft punch. (Take a look at anotherprojectwhere I used the same flower punch.) You’;ll also need a ribbon for hanging.

To prep the flowers, simply punch out of the cardstock with the punch and bent slightly in on itself to create a dimensional look and put your pin through the center.

Cover your foam heart with felt by tracing the heart onto the felt and cut 2 (for top and bottom) and affix with push pins (or glue if you like). Measure the sides of the heart and cut strips of felt for sides. Attach felt to sides, making sure the entire foam heart is covered with felt. Don’;t worry if it’;s not too accurate, this is just to hide the foam so you can’;t see it between the flowers.

Now you can start adding your flowers. I wanted a somewhat crowded look to the flowers, so I placed mine fairly close together. Make sure you distribute the patterns and colors well so you don’;t get clumps of one pattern or color.

Don’;t forget to cover the sides as well.

When you’;ve covered the heart, turn it over and add a ribbon for hanging. I tied a little knot in the bottom for decoration. You can attach the ribbon to the heart with push pins or glue. Enjoy!

Isn’;t that the sweetest? Check out Vanessa’;s site Punkin Patternfor more great tutes and inspiration!

"Imagine that you have to leave your house forever with only a moment’s notice—what would you take with you? Imagine that you have three hours’ notice—now, what would you take? Imagine that you have one day’s notice—which of your things would make the cut? This is a bit extreme, and I hope it won’t become a real-life scenario for any of us, but it brings out definite answers where once there were question marks."

You definitely don't have to live in the country to appreciate rustic décor. The natural materials, the often rough sewn look of much of the furniture and the generous use of antique pieces gives rustic décor a charm which is all its own. It's often the living room which gets the country treatment, but this is a look which is just as welcome in the dining room – and in fact, it's a great way to continue the theme from one room to the next if you're going for a rustic look in your home.
