Inspired by The House That Lars Built's Balloon Heart Backdrop, I set out to make a kid-friendly version. I like to call it, "Hoop of Love." I used: a bamboo hula hoop from Ikea, about 80 balloons in two different pinks, white, gold and red and 5 XO balloons from Target, and baker's twine in metallic gold from Amazon. I tied each balloon individually with string so I could move and adjust them as I added more balloons.
Valentine's Day is the second biggest flower giving holiday of the year. So we all have a lot of flowers lying around after last weekend, right? Instead of just throwing them away, here are some ideas for repurposing those blooms.
Flower poppers! You see them all the time with confetti, so why not with flowers? Mila loved plucking all the hyacinth off the stems and stuffing the blossoms into the poppers.
Isn't this giant floral typography wall art DIY by Paper & Stitch gorgeous?
This DIY hanging flower installation from Sugar & Cloth is pretty impressive.
