Valentine’s Day, oh how I love thee!! I love putting away my Christmas décor because it means that I can start planning for Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if it’s all the pink, the chocolate, or all the little hearts everywhere, but I just love this time of year! I do like to do a little decorating for Valentine’s Day, but nothing too much! This year, I added a little gold DIY sequin heart to the décor. It was a simple DIY project and it adds a little sparkle to these dreary winter days. The only problem is trying to decide where to keep it.
The heart also looked great on our little bar area next to our kitchen. When we remodeled our kitchen, I added the open shelves to this area, thinking that I could change it seasonally. Other seasonal items I added to the bar area include a pink cakestand, Love art print, and pink heart marshmallows.
Making the DIY sequin heart only takes a few minutes. You’ll need a heart template, sequin trim and a hot glue gun. I purchased a Styrofoam and cork heart at my local dollar store. A chipboard or other cardboard heart would also work. For the trim, I purchased 3 yards of trim for a heart that is about 12″ x 12″.
To assemble: Starting at the top edge, place about a 4″ strip of glue around the outer edge of the heart. Press sequin trim on top of the glue. Continue in about 4″ sections around the entire edge of the heart, then wrapping around filling the inside of the heart. You can also cut pieces of the trim to fill in. At the end of the trim, simply tuck under one of the other pieces.
