Good morning! Well, it’s the week for love! Do you have special plans for Valentine’s Day? Do you go out for a fancy dinner, or just stay home and enjoy being with your loved ones? We don’t want to fight with the crowds, so we typically stay in. We order a coupld of heart shaped pizzas, and call it good!
I posted this DIY last year and thought I would share it again for any new followers. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s!
Lauren and I kind of came up with the same type of Valentine project and we hadn’t even talked about it ahead of time. A little scary! We both used silk flowers and mounted them, hers is on a canvas and mine is on a weathered board. You can see hers here. Anyways, I had a bunch of small boards that Lauren had painted awhile ago, plus some silk flowers in my stash and decided to try and put them together.
I pulled out the flowers I wanted to use, I chose pink, and then decided on a grey board so the flowers would really stand out. I drew a heart on a piece of paper and then traced it onto the board so I would have a little bit of an outline to put my flowers in.
I did try this a couple of different ways, but ended up using just one type and color of flower. I was so busy gluing and placing flowers, I forgot to take any pictures during. Sorry! But it is pretty simple. I glued them really close together so they would be nice and tight. I even trimmed some of the petals to give it more of a heart shape. I think maybe smaller flowers with tighter petals would have worked better, but I still think this looks good.
I used a decorative stand to display it on and placed it my shelves in my dining room with my other pink decor.
This was really simple, but I think it looks nice and adds just a little special touch to the shelf.
