~The Greatest Gift~
Valentine’s Day will be making its debut very soon. It will show up with its red hearts and pink candies. There will be flowers and chocolates….lots of chocolates…
To prepare for its arrival, we’ll cut out paper hearts and make pink and red pom poms. There will be talk of hugs and kisses and “I love you” will be said more than once.
We’ll end the day with a deep and true knowledge that the greatest gift is LOVE…
Valentine’s Day Bunting
For the bunting, I began with small strips of burlap. I used my stencil to decide on the size of the burlap. I cut them long enough to fold over, at the top edge, to create an opening to thread them onto the twine.
Each strip of burlap was stenciled with one letter. I used DecoArt’s Metallic Acrylic Paint in Glorious Gold.
To create the fringe edges, I pulled 3-4 strands from the sides and bottom edge of the burlap strips. I folded over the top edge of the strips and sewed them together to make a pocket, to thread them on to the twine. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I used red thread to give the bunting a special touch.
The letters are strung on the twine and they’re waiting to greet Valentine’s Day upon its arrival.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
– 1 Corinthians 13:13
