Best Valentine Ideas


I haven't done a darn thing for Valentine's Day 2015 but I am 
enjoying gathering ideas from other blogs and Pinterest.
After seeing all the recent "favorite blog posts" that the new
year brings, I thought I would recap the best Valentine posts
that have been on "Miss Kopy Kat" blog. If you like any of 
them, this gives you time to get supplies, etc. and get crafting. 

Click on the highlighted text above the picture to go to 
the actual blog post to see more details. 

The most viewed post for sure is the one that shows how to 
make deco mesh wreaths.  It had a round wreath and a heart-
shaped wreath. This post was done before deco mesh was 
readily available and was my first attempts at using deco mesh. 

If you would like to see more deco mesh tutorials that I have done since this post,
click this link Deco Mesh Tutorials or the text on the navigation bar at the top of the page. 

Another deco mesh wreath that was done a year later for
Valentine's Day is a lot bigger...

The most ambitious Valentine decor that I have done was 
decorating the living room with vintage-looking papers.

Here is the mantle...
Vintage Valentine Mantle

This is a tutorial for one of the wreaths...

... lollies made from aged book pages and ribbons...

...and another vignette in the room also...

The dining room hutch that same year had a different look
 than the living room using mostly Dollar Tree items...

A fun and inexpensive gift idea also from that year...

This last idea could be used any time of year for parties, weddings,
etc. but I used my Valentine roses to experiment more with
submerging flowers. It makes your flowers last a long time and
gives a dozen roses a lot of visual impact. 

It was fun for me to look back on some of my Valentine's Day
projects and gifts....hope you liked the flash back too!

  1. whoa! i'm impressed...you've got some great Valentine's day ideas and here I am barely over Christmas!

    I really like that soda can idea...might have to "kopy kat" that one!

    I made a burlap Valentine banner a few years ago so I'll probably pull that out and mix in a few $$Tree things.

    Great ideas and thanks for sharing.
