Easy Valentine's Day Decor {DIY}

Valentine's Day is tomorrow. The hubby and I are opting for the stay date! Good thing, because our only other option is sledding to the local wine bar! We are expecting more from the snowpocalypse tonight. I am definitely ready to move to Miami. During the day today, The boys and I galloped through the snow and I made my hubby special V-day cupcakes. Tomorrow, the hubs is preparing a Valentine's Day feast! He knows that I love fettuccine alfredo, but I never make it{for obvious fattening reasons:}. My toddlers and I eventually exhausted ourselves in the snow and got bored. That is when the play dough usually comes out.

The play dough is normally a mixed up mess of psychedelic colors combined with a few strands of German Shepherd hair. In light of V-day, we wanted to create hearts! Then somewhere in my crazy mind I thought to bake these little hearts and hang them on my wall. Then, I also got the bright idea to do a LOVE theme for the entire kitchen nook. My hot glue gun and I went crazy creating stick frames. I framed some V-day art my boys painted as well as a family photo. The whole area looks lovely, but the crab art is sticking out like a sore thumb. Ah well, you can't win them all!

Basic Salt Dough Recipe from busybeekidscrafts.com

Happy Valentine's Day to my loves!
