Planting Some Love

we love them!

Our Grandpa has entrusted a shelf to us that we must decorate seasonally over at Bethesda Care Center.

Fall: Pumpkins, black vases with wheat in them
Christmas: Wrapped Presents
Winter: ______________

{Well, we wanted snowballs to carry us through till March, but Styrofoam balls were soooo expensive}

We're on a budget, see, so we looked & looked and decided on a Valentine theme.

we grabbed
our trusty
Paper Doilies,
Wrapping paper,
and cardboard heart boxes....

We created

We love creating

We patiently love creating

Hey...who's idea was this to do all of this creating again???

We pieced

We glued

We pieced

We glued

Until we got all four boxes patched up & glued

{We'll interrupt here and note that this is NOT the greatest craft project for kids...why, I barely made it through it all!}

While the boxes were drying we worked on our LOVE

No, we are not fighting right now!

We were painting some cardboard LOVE letters

We planted those LOVE letters into pots {painted of course!} and mossed them up and put some sparkling heart garland up them

After we placed the boxes around we tool some left over doily hearts out & placed them about with some rose garland, which we cut up and placed around.

We think it turned out cute...what about you?

I think it's lovely and what a nice gesture for the residents/patients! Haven't ever played with modge podge which is incredibly weird considering what a craft-geek I am. Keep on sharing the great projects ladies - hugs!
