This DIY heart balloon chandelier is very similar to the star chandelier I created for the girls Birthday last June (tutorial can be found here) except half the size + required a ladder since the girls table and chair set was so much 
shorter than our dining room table. Everything is resourced below.

DIY Valentine Photo Idea


 DIY Valentine Photo gift for Dad/Grandparents/or yourself!😉by turning a cardboard box inside out (once again over here) in making a littles photo shoot turn into art + play! + yes at the end a little pull in the cardboard basket box was in order to really let them feel the “floating affect” + thus gave us smiles for the picture + supplies? What we used exactly is listed below!


Card Stock
(left over from MMDC craft kits?!)
Curling Ribbon
Helium Tank
Oh Craft knife 
(or something close to it at home)


MINI MAKER NOTE: 
My 5 year could help paint over the squares + depending on your littles fine motor skills they could also help fold + cut the squares.


MAKING NOTE: 
If you look closely, we added on this pink garland up front to really make the box look like a “hot air balloon basket.” 


Up next is our Daddy-Daughter brunch tradition! I’ll start showing a bit of it on Saturday as I’m setting up!!

 Warmly, Steph
