I decided to do a quick last minute Valentine's craft with the kiddo. All you need is an old book, makers and some string.
How I Made Valentine's & St. Patti's Décor From an Old Book!
I tour out some pages of the book and used an cookie cutter as a stencil to draw a heart.
Then I colored in the heart with some Crayola markers.
Fold each page over about and inch and place the folded part over a jute rope.
Then staple the folded over flap around the rope.
This came out to be such a fun garland for over the fire place! It's a great craft with small children and, oh yea IT'S FREE! If it's free it's for me, am I right?
As a side note, did you know that any TV can be one of those "framed art TVs" just search for "classic art" in youtube! Much cheaper then buying a fancy pansy new TV!
The same method can be applied for St. Patti Day décor. I found a shamrock from a beaded necklace I suppose I acquired one year our at the bars (in my youth ) and used it as a stencil.
