DIY Pom-Pom Heart

I just HAD to share this awesome wall art with you. My neighbor (who I was babysitting for recently) is very creative, she used to be a graphic designer and her house full of great artwork. Well take a look at what her and her girls made to hang above the desk in their kitchen for Valentine's Day this year:

How awesome is that giant heart??! It is made from over-sized tissue paper flowers. The dimensions are about 4 feet x 4 feet. They cut a large heart out of poster board (using 2 posters) and then made the flowers to attach.(I am not 100% sure how the flowers were made, my neighbor explained it but I am going to get her to help me make some next year and I'll give you guys a tutorial on it). Then they added a loop of ribbon to the back once it was finished so that it could be hung. I think this is just darling and so creative. It makes such a nice piece of art for the wall... but is still different from a wreath!

 I think this giant heart is such a great decoration for Valentines day and a pretty inexpensive one too. If you want to make one yourself you can find a similar pom-pom kit from Martha Stewart (of course).
