*We are re~naming this series “Not So Boring Mom” *
I have about ZERO valentine decorations for some reason…I love the holiday but just have never stalked up on all the decor and each year I kick myself for it!
This year I thought to myself …if I am not going to decorate the house for V-Day there is no reason my daughter can’t add a little spice to her very own bedroom door to help feel the spirit of the holiday…
All you will need is:
-card stock of any color (I stuck with mostly pink, added some purple and even a little shiny black)
I simply made a stencil of a heart in the size I wanted, ohhhh about 2 or so inches to be exact ;) then my daughter and I traced it to make a TON of hearts on different colored card stock.
After then we simply cut out those hearts….
…and my daughter got to work laying them out into a pattern that was pleasing to her….lets repeat…PLEASING TO HER. I would not have layed them out this way and she also had the idea to do one heart facing straight and the next one side ways, then one facing straight etc etc…oy. I just kept smiling and telling her how fabulous it looked and reminded myself it was going on HER door after all.
I set my daughter up on the sewing machine and I showed her how to sew straight through the first heart, with her left hand guiding it out the back and leaving a few inches of thread before sending another heart through. I simply handed the next heart in line to her and she was able to sew it in whichever direction she wanted. I was able to able to ask her about her day at school and she thought she was HOT STUFF stuff sitting there in command of the sewing machine! She kept telling me how fun it was and it was fun for me to see her so happy and confident!
When we were done we proudly hung that beauty on her door!
I found it best to use some making tape and make little loops to stick to every 6 hearts or so. She is so proud and thinks it’s absolutely beautiful.
This was a VERY simple project but had a big impact in our house :)
