For the first craft, go through your book shelves. I know you’ve got some old books that you’ve already read, or you’re never going to read, or are completely dated. If you have an old book of love poems that you feel comfortable chopping up that would be perfect. For me I picked an old social psychology text book from undergrad (sorry social psychologists!).
You also need a heart stencil (I used a heart cookie cutter that I had), a pencil, and scissors. Rip out some of the pages filled with words (I skipped the pages with graphs because that does not sound lovey-dovey to me lol) and trace the hearts onto your book pages. Then cut out your hearts.
Easy enough, right? You can use these hearts as decorations on your table or as confetti or even make them into garland. I have mine on the mantle and the breakfast bar.
For the next craft I bought a ceramic key from Hobby Lobby for a dollar and painted it with some red paint….I’m pretty sure that is as easy as it gets lol
I put the painted red key on the breakfast bar with the wordy hearts.Here is everything together at the end of the breakfast bar.
Festive right? And what’s better is that both of these crafts, together, only cost me one dollar! A dollar people! For that price alone, these just might be my favorite crafts lol
What do you think?
