All you need is love. And a smidgen of craftiness. And a couple of hours… And here’s your inspiration: 5 easy-to-make rustic crafts that will fit right in with your farmhouse decor, shabby chic style or eclectic design sensibilities.
And, guess what?! Not only is Valentine’s Day coming up, but February is National Weddings Month… so there is all kinds of love gathering around you. Why not give yourself a treat by making a sweet, heart-decorated tote bag that you can show off when you shop? (All Military Spouses deserve that, for sure!) Or have the kids help you wrap yarn hearts you can hang in front of a bright kitchen window for a pretty reminder of the season. Or put some X’s and O’x on your doorstep to welcome visitors.
Whatever you decide to create, have fun sharing the love.
