Make a Valentine Vignette with Paper Rosettes!!

I spent yesterday working on making a little Valentine Vignette in my little Beadboard nook. I love that little space. Enjoy these Paper Rosettes!!

One of my favorite things in the world is pretty paper. And I was so lucky to pick up some beautiful paper at the CHA show over the weekend. I had a great time turning some of that paper into pretty paper rosettes to hang in my nook. And they are so easy to make. It’s a great way to decorate for a holiday or create some dramatic impact for a party.

I wrote a more in-depth tutorial on how to make the Paper Rosettes over on the Babble Home Ec blog, where I write 3 times a week. So head over there for more details on how to make them. They are seriously so easy to make and all it requires is paper, a stapler and embellishments. I might be decorating my entire house in rosettes soon – lol.

I also downloaded a very fun printable from the very talented Lara @ Less Cake More Frosting. It says — Tea For Two & two For Tea. I love the bright pink and grey together — so pretty.

And the size was a little small for my frame, so I backed the printable with some left-over chevron wrapping paper I ordered from Fifth & Hazel. It’s the same paper I used to line my kitchen cupboard. I love it!

I mod podged an X and O, and main picture and hung them with 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips:

I don’t know what we did before they invented those. I guess we had a million holes in our walls. I love that I can change up that space as often as I want without damaging the beadboard.

I also filled some apothecary jars with some Dollar Store doilies, cupcake liners and sparkly ribbons.

Now bring on the ♥♥♥ Day – I’m ready!!

Do you have a space you like to change up for different holidays?

Here’s my little nook before:

That little nook makes me so happy.

Have a Beautiful Friday!!

  24. WOW, it’s amazing, Jen. But we wouldn’t expect anything less from you…I bet it’s really cool to see how your house changes throughout the different holidays each year. I just don’t have the time, money, effort or desire to change my decor up that often 😉 But you at least get me to do a new wreath for my front door each holiday. LOL As always, such an inspiration.

  25. Love this! definitely has the sweet valentine’s day feeling without all the tackiness! Love the shabby chic feel to it all. Especially the black and white poster!
