I don’t know about you, but this week’s winter weather has me wanting to stay inside and wait for spring. While the snow and ice is starting to melt here in North Carolina, I’m still planning to spend my Valentine’s Day cuddled up and warm at home. If you’re staying in too, here are 5 things to inspire a celebration of all things heart shaped and lovey-dovey on Valentine’s Day!
FEAST YOUR EYES on all of the gorgeous heart designs on the Spoonflower Marketplace. Sign into your account to favorite the designs you love to keep track for future projects. I’m loving this Queen of Hearts collection by PennyCandy. The design featured here is Open Your Heart.
FOLD AN ORIGAMI HEART in five different ways. You can use them to embellish a valentine or simply give them to someone you love.
EMBROIDER a handwritten message from the heart.
RAID YOUR PAPER STASH (and perhaps the recycling you’ve avoided taking out in the snow!) to create beautiful, mini heart pinatas.
PRINT THIS PATTERN to create a patchwork anatomical heart and applique to anything you like!
Hope these will keep you from going stir crazy on a Valentine’s Day in!
Have a great weekend,
