{ONE HOUR} Yarn Wrapped Heart Decoration 

I don’t know about you, but once my Christmas decorations were taken down and put away, my home felt pretty bare looking! It was time to think about some new decor to liven things up. We recently moved into this home, so I am still working on decorating in general, but while in the midst of that, I wanted to come up with a  little bit of Valentine’s decor for the next month. 

I found my rose pink wood heart and XO for very cheap at a nearby store, and had recently made the ‘Tune my heart to sing Thy grace’ wooden sign. They looked great on my floating shelf that you may remember from this post. But I needed a little something else to finish it off. I wanted to use things I had on hand and came up with a Yarn Wrapped Heart in a pail!

string art tutorial DIY home decor pallet signI am so addicted to string art. Once you get the basic technique down, you can string any word or object in any color you’d like with whatever thread type & wood type you’d like. {I’m noticing that I pretty much say that for all my tutorials – what can I say.

FREE Printable Chore Charts

These free printable chore charts for kids are available for download – in 10 different designs! 


Do your kids do chores? I find it hard to keep up with my four kids and their chores if we don’t have chore charts hanging up – at a glance, I can see who I should praise for doing a great job keeping up with their chore chart, and who tends to forget and needs a gentle reminder. 

Did you know that kids tend to jump on board with new things when they are involved in the prep? So the secret is this: Show your kids the design options we have available for download, and I’ll bet they’ll be excited to start the chore chart that THEY chose! Crazy, right? (Psst: it works for food, too….let your kids arrange vegetables nicely on a tray, and they’re likely to eat more of them than usual…..just a tip, from mom to mom.) 😉 

Printable chore charts make our mornings run smoother — I can do the things I need to do to get ready for the day, and the kids know their “to-do’s” are all there, written out. I don’t like “nagging” my kids — “Did you brush your teeth?” “Did you practice piano?” These printable chore charts will cut down on that ugly “mom-nagging” 😉 because the only job you’ll need to give your kids is this: “Make sure you’ve done everything on your chore chart!”  It makes for a nicer morning all the way around. 🙂
