Dollar tree doilie garland and a stolen heart

I told you that I've been working on a few Valentines projects.
 I purchased a few items at the Dollar Tree to help me along. 
The first project was made with:
 Dollar Tree heart doilies  ~ $1.00
Ribbon from Michael's ~ .50        

I cut the ribbon into a pile of  4 inch pieces.

Laced the ribbon through a opening on two paper hearts and tied them together.

.. and continued until and had a beautiful garland made of hearts.


This room is  busy with the tree branches, snowflakes and now
the hearts..
but it is such a fun room to play in.

See the iron...
that's right
I iron!!!

Who is that pretty princess in the pink nightgown?

The guard dog!

I do confess that I do enjoy this little doggie torture.
They are just so darned cute.

I have said many times that Sharky has stolen our hearts!

Turn away
before he steals yours too!!!!

Today I am linked up with ..
go and check out some of the awesome projects!!!

I think I am not very crafty...I see those cute things and want to do something with them but don't. This is very cute. Now stop torturing the dog! ;D

Hi Leslie,

My daughter allowed me to use her laptop once more so that I could leave you a message :-)! Love your heart shaped bunting. It looks really good! Your dog made me LOL!

I happened to find your blog from facebook from Dollar Tree. Very cute idea! My youngest was born on Valentine's Day but he and his brother who was also born in February, don't want hearts hanging everywhere at their birthday party! So I'll be forgoing Valentine's Day decorations!

Becky said...

I want to do a valance like that ... and I can. It would look great in my living room along my sliding glass doors.

By the way ... your guard dog is SO VICIOUS in her frilly little pink nightgown ;)
