Thanks so much for the love on my new chairs yesterday! Hopefully I didn’t enable your online shopping habit too much. I’ll make up for it today with a cheapie-cheap project! How’s $2 sound?
I found these packages of paper heart doilies in the Target
Danger Dollar Zone. I’m not big on Valentine Decor (despite me having an entire tab of Valentine projects!), but I do like a few sweet touches here and there.
So I whipped up an easy table runner, perfect for the Breakfast Room. I measured how long I wanted it to be, then just arranged the hearts in a pattern I liked. Once that was done, I went back and added a dot of glue to the underside where each heart overlapped (that dries clear).
Allow the glue to dry and you have a cute runner that adds a bright pop of color to a Valentine tablescape.
Not too shabby for 5 minutes and $2, right?! The spotted plates are currently on clearance at Target, since they consider them Christmasy. I’ll use them for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and all the patriotic holidays!
The Breakfast Room is my favorite spot to add some Valentine fun, since it’s where we tend to gather as a family. Last year’s Paper Heart Garland hangs from the window.
Are you working on any sweet things for your Valentines? I’ve got a few more easy-breezy ones coming up!
