A Day Frilled with Love

This Friday we decided to gather up some of our friends and all our Valentine’s Day treats to have a little party and photo shoot. We had so much fun and definitely celebrated the “togetherness” of the holiday (and ate a lot of candy).

Our friend, Corrine, donated these heart paper straws that could not be any cuter, and also the felt hearts draped over the record player in the picture above. (Both straws and felt hearts are from Target.)

Here is Corrine working hard (and being adorable) signing some Valentines:Image

We made these Valentines with paper made (from scratch) by our friend Hannah, and water color paints from our friend Andrea. What would we do without our talented art major friends? It really was a team effort!

Gina received this rose and some chocolates from another friend, Laurel. How sweet!Image

Anna and Corrine enjoying some snacks and each other’s company at our get together. Did you see our flower garland on the wall? Check out our last post to learn how to make some for your next party!Image

The record player is from Urban Outfitters and the Fleetwood Mac album is Rumours, one of Anna’s favorites!

Thanks for stopping by!

With Love and Frill,

More Pink! More Garland!

Welcome back to Frill Your Room with Love! We couldn’t resist posting another Valentine’s Day DIY decoration this week, and this flower garland is just too adorable (and simple!) not to post about. Enjoy!

Supplies you’ll need: stapler, coffee filters, twine, food coloring, and container to mix food coloring in

Step 1: Fold coffee filters in half, in half again, and in half a third time, so they look like this:

Step 2: Mix food coloring and water together in the container (we used a styrofoam plate):

Step 3: Dip the folded coffee filters in the container and let sit until dry (we let them dry overnight):

Step 4: Once dry, take the coffee filters and ruffle them up to make them look like flowers:

Step 5: Take the pointed end of the coffee filter and fold over the twine then staple:

Keep attaching your flowers (about a stapler’s width apart) until you reach your desired length. Although these are intended to decorate for Valentine’s Day, you’ll probably want to keep them up all year long!

A String of Hearts

Here comes one of our favorite holidays for decorating and crafting!! We are putting together directions on how to make some sweet cards, gifts, and decorations for Valentine’s Day. Today we present this simple and darling heart garland.

Supplies you’ll need: hole puncher, twine, type of glue (we used a hot glue gun), scissors, patterned Valentine’s paper (it can be scraps!)

_MG_0490

Step 1: Cut out hearts of all shapes and sizes from the patterned Valentine’s paper. Go ahead and layer them up! The more layers the better.

Step 2: Hole punch each corner of the hearts so that they can be connected with twine later.

Step 3: Put the twine through the holes and use your judgement on the spacing.
