Creating off of Pinterest

We had a few little friends over yesterday and we decided to do a little Valentine craft.  I saw a post in Pinterest where you use a pencil eraser to create polka dot paint projects.  It looked like a lot of fun and something that five to seven year olds would be able to handle.  They did a great job.

Here is the original post on Pinterest .  We decided to do Valentines Cards which are going to be for teachers and parents, and I did a t-shirt for my little girl.

I thought they turned out quite nicely.  I hung them in my window to let them dry and decided they looked so cute as Valentine decorations.  I plan on having the girls back over to finish their cards but might have to wait until just before Valentines day.

I also made this cute garland to hang on my mantle mirror.  I'm not a big fan of the colors red and pink so I don't go crazy with decorations for this holiday in spite of the fact that it's my daughters favorite holiday.

I love how this turned out.  I have seen them in all of the party blogs and then a friend made one for a photo shoot.  I just loved how simple it looked.  I think it looks great here and might have to make another one for Easter.
