Love is in the air! At least it is in our house. The sky has been so gloomy lately that I needed some color to liven things up. Naturally, my kids and I decided to decorate for Valentine's Day. Nothing like a pop of pink and red to spruce things up.
If you are a frequent reader, you are probably aware that each year we do a countdown to Valentine's Day each year. A couple years ago we did a Heart Paper Chain Countdown. Last year we did a Clothespin Countdown. This year we decided to fill a bouquet with a new flower each day.
Using PicMonkey, I created these countdown tags for each flower. (Of course you can save and print a copy for yourself!) I simply cut them out, hole punched the top, and put one on each flower stem.
I put out a vase and laid the flowers all around it. Each day one of my kids puts a flower in the vase. They are constantly asking me if it is their turn. I knew the girls would love it, but Bud has taken a real shine to it. His little body shakes with joy whenever I tell him it's his turn.
The vase is looking better each day.
I bought my flowers, but you could definitely make your own. Try some of these techniques:
- Pipe cleaner flowers
- Paper flowers
- Talking flowers
- Coffee filter flowers
- Felt flowers
- Cupcake liner flowers
- Tissue paper flowers
- Fabric flowers
