Valentine Garland

So I saw THIS garland.  Which led me to THIS garland and then to a few more.  I thought they looked like fun.  But when I headed to the store, the felt choice colors I didn't love.  So I decided I'd be boring and stick with the traditional Valentine colors.  And then on my way out of Michael's I found the felt "LOVE" and decided that I might could incorporate it into my garland. 
So when some precious neighbors and I got together to craft last night I decided to give it a whirl. 
The kids love it.  It definitely adds a festive touch to our family room!  right now it's just sort of 'propped' on the mantel.  Can't decide if that's where I want it for sure or not.....we'll see.


It was SUPER easy.  And would have been a super fast craft had I not been chatting away with sweet ladies (eh hem...til nearly 1am), but then it might not have been as much fun to make!  Here's what Emilee worked on and let me tell you I'm going to have to do this....SO cute!!  And Mandy worked on the most beautiful quilt.  I am in love with the color and fabric choices.  It makes me want to quilt!!  These two ladies are inspiring!!
Who knows what will be created when we get together next!
