♪ The best part of waking up ♫… isn’t Folgers in your cup but coffee filter garlands.
Since Spark, my cha Dear Lizzy Booth and now Valentine’s decor I’ve gone through 1800 coffee filters. 3 jumbo packs. Sheesh that doesn’t include Rhonna and Margie’s. After we took down all the garlands for Spark, which was A LOT, even Collin missed them. So I was happy to decorate for Valentine’s Day & if you’ve been to Dear Lizzie boutique the entrance to their store is so fabulous! Right then and there I knew I needed some filter fun strung for February.
The La La Love You print I got a couple years ago and used it for inspiration in my book. One of the jars is filled with cute plastic conversation hearts and the other one is filled with love notes. (Margie had love notes in her booth at cha and I loved reading one everyday.)
The heart boxes are my favorite-with the big chunky hanging crystals from House of 3. My Spark sister Rhonna posted a tutorial for making the coffee filter flowers on her blog. She’s very serious in the video but don’t let that fool you. If she could she would have been squealing and dancing around while she filmed! x0 There was a hot glue gun involved so that was probably why.
The X & O are wood letters I got from Roberts then glittered the heck out of them. I forgot to spray paint them before. Painting them about the same color of the glitter helps with coverage. Since I must of been too excited to start modpodging I forgot that step, which wasn’t that bad just meant lots more sparkle. Okay possibly some frustration which led to trash talking the glitter too.
Looking at this reminds me… it’s time for new family photos. Any recommendations? Wish Maggie was closer!!
