Do you decorate the house for Valentine’s Day?
When our kids were living at home, I went all out to make Valentine’s Day fun for them… special treats, flowers, treasure hunts, notes stuck to bedroom doors to find when they woke up… all sorts of memory building things.
I’ve never really done much by way of decorating for Valentine’s though. So this year, I thought it would be fun to have little pops of red or hearts here and there throughout the house.
To that end, on my last trip to Joann’s in the States, I picked up some pretty red fabric with gold hearts and made a set of Valentine’s tissue box covers following my Reversible Tissue Box Cover Tutorial.
Didn’t they turn out pretty!
The tall square one is in our downstairs guest bathroom:
The short rectangular one is in the kitchen:
And the largest one is on the end table beside my chair in the living room.
I even got out and ironed the gingham table cover that Dave’s step mother gave us years and years ago.
Of course, the end table looked like that just long enough for me to take a photo to share.
Five minutes later, it looked like this:
Wouldn’t one of these make great teacher gifts accompanied by extra tissue boxes!
Because they’re reversible you could make one side Valentine’s themed and the other side in St. Patrick’s Day fabrics. Or choose some other fun fabric that you know they’ll like.
