My Valentines' Gift

This is what I am making for my Valentine. I saw the idea on Pinterest - and I had already bought 6 little canvas squares at Target for $1 each a couple weeks ago, knowing I would find a use for them eventually. I bought the pretty 3D scrapbooking stickers at a local dollar store. 

So - I painted the canvas with paint I already had - since, as you can see, they are pre-printed for little kids to paint - so I needed to cover up the picture. I just laid the photo on and let it dry with the paint for a bit and then covered the whole thing with Mod Podge. I added the 3D stickers once it was dry.
I will have to touch up the paint some - I can see some of the pre-printed picture is showing through - or I may just add a little gold glitter! yea, that is an idea!

This will go in his Valentine bag along with his card, the new iPad cover I am getting him and this framed I ♥ U I also found on Pinterest.

Valentine Wreath

Just threw this together today to have a wreath on the door.

Straw wreath - random goodies from Hobby Lobby.

I secure the ribbon with straight pins.
