Valentine hack: Turn fabric scraps into window decorations
By now, we expect brilliance from Rookie Mom Whitney, and she doesn't disappoint:
My husband says they are hideous, but we already have window decorations up for Valentine's day, and my three- year old BOY says, "I love them. They are beautiful."
I got out all my fabric and told him that Valentine's colors are red, pink and purple. We picked out any fabric with those colors and spread them across the floor. I cut symmetrical hearts by folding pieces in half and then cutting a tear-drop shape. Our quick and dirty method of decorating was to tape the hearts to our front window. If my partner in crime were seven- or eight years old instead of three, I would have cut smaller hearts to glue in the larger ones, and then safety pinned them to a long piece of ribbon. But my son has no patience for a 30-minute project. Our method took about ten minutes.
Since we're trying to declutter (always), I was happy to make use of some scraps!
