All you need is {love}

Slowly but surely, we're getting a little Valentine's Day decor up around this house!  Santa brought my hubby a new saw for Christmas--I don't know who was more excited:  Me or him!  I thought he might need to try it out, so being the thoughtful wife that I am, I asked him to help me out!
The very sweet Mr. Daisy cut me 3 blocks--two 7" blocks, one 6" block, and one 8" block.  I gave them a couple coats of red spray paint and sanded up those edges.
Next, I traced the blocks on scrapbook paper and mod-podged them on.
I cut the l-o-v-e out of cardstock using my Cricut and mod-podged them onto the blocks.  A last coat of mod podge on top was the final step.
I decided to hot glue some ribbon around 3 sides and tie a bow up top.  (I learned the hard way that if I glued the ribbon on the bottom that the blocks wouldn't stand up!)
I'm quite excited with how they turned out...
I am still deciding where to put all of my Valentine decor!  I am such an indecisive decorator, especially in a new house!!
Have a happy day! Seriously--thanks for reading!
