DIY Valentine Streamers | Apron Strings & other things

We love decorating for holidays, parties, birthdays, winter-spring-summer-fall. Give us any day, we’ll find a reason and a way to decorate! And we often accomplish the task using items we find around the house. Take these streamers, for instance.

You can have your home or classroom all decked out for Valentine’s Day in no time, by following these simple instructions:
