You guys may remember these two projects that I tackled a while ago:
1) Candlestick Redo Tutorial
2) Table Redo: Stain & Paint Tutorial
In an effort to keep up with the holiday decor I wanted to do something with hearts for Valentine’s Day. However, with a 19 month old who has an arm like Tim Tebow and a 3 year old who is a crazy ballerina and three joyfully insane dogs I really didn’t want to put up anything glass or ceramic (although all of my other decor items are glass or ceramic and have been fine, I didn’t want to have to worry). I went on the hunt for the perfect kid & dog friendly hearts. I searched high and low at every store imaginable. Finally I came across these sweet little paper maché heart boxes. There were $2.99 each, in my opinion that was pretty steep for them but I sucked it up and bought them anyway. I actually really like them because I don’t have to worry about them getting broken.

Only because I’m showing different holiday decor for the candlesticks and table, here was my fall decor:
