Hanging Valentine Garland

So before we get into all this fun love craftiness, I must thank a few people. First, Frank Gore. Thank you for scoring two touchdowns in last night’s game. Second, Colin Kaepernick, way to keep the ball moving. Third, the entire 49er’s team for making to the superbowl this year.

You may think I am crazy right here, but seriously. Maybe your husband, boyfriend, significant other, etc. loves sports. Maybe he doesn’t. Maybe he is equally obsessed with something else. So you know when things don’t go right there can be major mood swings (I thought those were mostly for women, but no not true). So my husband loves his sports and when his teams win life is wonderful. If they lose, well you know. So I dedicate this post to the 49er’s for giving me a few more days of peaceful coexistence with my sports fanatic husband.

On to prettier things. I have some weird fascination with door beads. I remember in middle school I may or may not have had them hanging in my bedroom doorway. It was just sort of fun to walk through them. So the Mr. pretty much won’t let me have any now, so I have to improvise by decorating with Hanging Valentine Garland. So it serves the same purpose as door beads, but it a much cuter, valentine way.Hanging Valentine Garland at the Benson Street Hanging Valentine Garlands at The Benson StreetReally easy to make. So versatile. Just cute out some cute paper hearts. Make some paper pin wheels. Glue or clip them to ric rac, baker’s twin or ribbon. Hang in windows, doorways, on walls. Pretty much anywhere.

Then fold in half again and once more. Then unfold until the circle is still folded in half. Repeat with other three circles. Then glue all four half circles together.
