Valentine Garland

While sorting through and organizing Christmas
decor after the holidays I came across this strand
of pink mini lights.  I think they must have been used
on one of my daughters little trees in their
bedroom at some point.  I just kept them out
and thought I might fit them into Valentine’s
decor somewhere.  I’m not a big Valentine’s
decorator.  Just a little touch here and there.
 
Pinterest to the rescue for inspiration!
Have you seen these Valentine’s garlands?
This is my spin on them.
Pink (or clear)  mini lights + heart paper doilies + hole punch
Gently fold over the doilie, being careful not to crease it. 
 Punch a half hole.
Gently push a bulb through the hole.  
It doesn’t get much easier than that.  
You can alternate heart shaped and round doilies on your garland, 
or use clear lights and red doilies too!
The fun part about creative projects is making it
completely your own. 
Last week I spent some time putting away Christmas dishes
and pulling out some pink for Valentine’s.
This was the perfect spot for my new garland.
 
 
 
So pretty at night.
