Easy Valentine Doily Crafts

Hello Friends!

I hope that whatever team your rooting for this SUPERBOWL wins!
We are watching of course, but the highlight of our weekend was my son Aidan's 

AIDAN is the little indian wearing dark brown to the right
 It was truly very fun and exciting!
Honestly, even if my son did not participate in the show, I would still say that the show 
over-all was PAN-tastic!!

Oldest kid in the group is Peter (Bailee) who is still in High school

But the most important thing is that, my little AIDAN truly enjoyed this experience and had a great time feeling proud of their work and belonging to such a fantastic group of kids!
I'm betting this won't be the last! ;-)

Thank you for indulging my "stage mom" side my friends. 
And now back to my craft.

I came up with two very simple Valentine craft for this loving holiday. 
We will be out of town that day but I still wanted to come up with something special 
since it will be Sophia's 1st!

Doily Hearts Table Cover
This is truly a super easy but big bang project!

So my breakfast table has a lazy susan in the middle that added an extra layer to this simple project.

Plain jane most days
 I then created a pattern first on top of the lazy susan...
Simple patterns
 ... then Taped away underneath
Our Simple but pretty Valentines table
 I then added some bigger doily on the main table. Then taped away.

I also made this simple Doily Garland for the window...

Super simple again and budget0friendly

I got most of my doily from the Dollar Store and Hobby Lobby and still have Lots left-over.
This project cost less than $5 to make!

But of course, I could not keep the setting looking this way everyday.
So I just made a smaller Heart Doily Mat for the center of the table for daily use until Valentines day comes!

How about you, do you decorate for Valentines too? big or small, grand or simple, what matters is the  LOVE your give and receive on this special day right?! 

Have  A Wonderful Week!



  1. Hi Vel...So cute and clever! And talk about a bargain. Are you getting the blizzard that we are to the north? If so, stay safe! We are in for the day, just enjoying a fire. Enjoy your week! Jane

  2. Wow the play looks like it was amazing! And the table looks so sweet all decorated for Valentines Day!

  15. How awesome to have Aidan as part of the show, it all looks so good! Yeah, as you know, I like to decorate my mantel and perhaps the table for Valentines. I got to buy some of those doilies, they're so versatile and economical. I cannot believe Sophia is almost 1!

  16. Love the doilies projects and your photos of your son's play!

  17. I'm so happy for Aidan, and what a wonderful experience! It's absolutely fine to be a "Stage Mom!"
