Valentine's Day Pillow Ornaments

Valentines Day Pillow Ornaments

Spread your love around the house with these Valentine's Day Pillow Ornaments. This easy craft involves some sewing, but focuses on basic painting and embellishing. You could also make these heart-shaped pillows as gifts for anyone, especially family members and neighbors to hang as decorations. Because this craft uses a sewing machine, it is not really a suitable kid's craft. Although, you could sew the pillows and have the kids paint them. Anyone who receives one of these pillow ornaments will feel the love you put into making it.
