Whitewashed, French Country, Valentines Day Decorating Ideas You can Make

Here I have a few very easy, and low, or no cost decorating ideas for Valentines Day, and even year around using a French Country decorating theme.


First we covered a couple of old cigar boxes with a few French Country wallpaper prints we found on the internet. We just saved the photos, and copied them out. Pretty easy so far...
Just put some glue on the back of the paper, and place them on the boxes where you wish. All you have to do then is wait for them to dry.
I think they turned out very nice.

Next we found some fabric, and sewed it into a heart shape, put a little whiet on it by dry brushing, and used one of our French Country stencils, in gold paint, to give it a little flare.
I had tried bleaching the fabric, but that color just didn't want to fade, hence the whitewash painting technique. That was o.k., as I got to use a stencil over that!
We also had a cherbu, so it got a coat of off white paint, and was ready to go.

All in all, it took very little time to do, and is a very nice, and different looking Valentines Day display for the home, and as always at very little, to no cost. A+
