Generally, I'm not big on decorating for Valentine's Day; the whole concept tends to make me think of Mrs. Nelson's third grade classroom and lots of crepe paper -- more sugary than sophisticated.
But this year I had a bare white branch on our living room shelf that was left over from Christmas. I think I heard it crying, "Decorate me!" And when your leftover Christmas decorations give you orders, you have to comply.
Here's how I made these easy heart ornaments:
I picked up these felt stickers on sale at Michaels; I think I paid a dollar for each package.
To make the ornaments, I just peeled the backing off a sticker:

Then I peeled the backing off of a matching sticker and pressed the two stickers, sticky sides together with the ribbon sandwiched in between:
Easy ornaments that add a cute touch of Valentine's Day cheer to a corner of our living room.
I added some felt garland (also from Michael's) to the vase with sticky tape:
I'm quite happy with my crepe-paper-free Valentine's Day decorating!
