DIY Burlap Placemats for Valentine's Day | View From The Fridge for My Crafty Spot

Hello, everyone!  I hope you’re staying warm wherever you are!  We’re enduring the cold (and trying to embrace it) up here in Minnesota, but inside … we’re moving on from Christmas.  The reds and greens are slowly being replaced by more neutral items … with just a touch of pink thrown in for Valentine’s Day!  Yes … I know, I know it may be rushing it a bit, but the hints of pink get me just a teeny tiny bit excited for Spring.

It’s Katie from View From The Fridge, and I’m back this month with a fun way to set a festive (or even romantic??) table for Valentine’s Day (or really any day) with these Burlap Placemats:

Easy Valentine-Themed Canvas Art

Easy Valentine-Themed Canvas Art

Hello! It’s Erin again, back from The Blue Eyed Dove. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are enjoying the first part of 2015!

January always feels like such a long month, but it seems to be flying by this year. Which is certainly not a bad thing. Plus, that means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…yay!

Being the girly girl that I am, I’m a sucker for a holiday that is centered around love, hearts…and of course lots of pink 😉

So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day {and love in general} I thought I’d share an easy canvas art project with you today.

Ampersand Valentine Art

Valentine-Ampersand-Thumbtack-Art-61

Make a work of art using just a 12 x 12 canvas and ~700 thumbtacks. I was looking for a twist on just the usual hearts this year for Valentine’s Day, so I picked another symbol for love, the ampersand. I especially love this project because once Valentine’s Day is over, it can live in our office all year round.

Santa Belly Paper Flower Holiday Craft Idea

This is such a great family or classroom craft idea too. It starts with a cool paper flower technique transformed into a Santa belly. Last month I made these cute paper flower turkeys for fun mason jar gift ideas using this same technique.

This is what I used to make these paper flower ornaments:

  • Holiday red patterned scrapbook paper
  • Gold glitter self-adhesive foam
  • Black self-adhesive foam
  • Wood circle (at least 2″)
  • Baker’s twine
  • XACTO knife or scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Clear tape
