Surround yourself with love this Valentine's Day. I made this hanging heart a few years ago and I like it so much, I keep it up all year long. It hangs over the kitchen sink.
With or without beads, hanging hearts can be made from pre-printed decorated papers or paper you decorate yourself.
All you need is paper, scissors, glue, and a string or ribbon.
You can hang more than one on a string, make them in different sizes, and add beads if you want.
If you don't add beads, they fold flat and can be mailed.
Here are the instructions if you want to give it a whirl. Download the file, print, cut heart templates, and get started.
You don't have to be a writer to write a love letter.
You just have to be yourself.
Here's a fill-in-the-blanks love letter to get you started:
This Valentine's Day I want you to know that I think you are ____________.
When you __________________________ it makes me _________________.
I'm so very ________________ you are _______________.
You can write to your partner, your spouse, your children, your friends.
Try it. I'm willing to bet it will make you feel good, too.
