Getting into the Valentine’s Day Spirit With a Vintage Sewing Themed Craft Space Makeover

Is it weird that I like to decorate my craft space in theme for the holidays?  Wait – don’t answer that.  I thought some vintage Valentines and antique toy sewing machines were just what I needed to get ready for Cupid’s arrival!  I don’t even sew but I just love the crafty aspect of the whole thing!

Technically I use an entire room in my house to craft, but my main hub is a Dreambox from Create Room.  I gotta say speaking of Valentine’s Day I love this thing.  It’s like a big cabinet that opens up to display my favorite crafty goodies but can also be closed to condense and hide the supplies.  Not only do I keep mine wide open 99% of the time I’ve taken to decorating it as of late.  It’s so fun and I’m such a sucker for holidays and color coordinating.

So as mentioned I am not much of a seamstress but what I am is a lover of a good theme.  My mother collected vintage toy sewing machines and now I have all of them.  Majority of her collection just so happened to be red and pink!  Believe it or not this is not my first time to bring these little Sew-o-Matics into my holiday decor.  Check out this Sewing Themed Christmas Tree.

Vintage Sewing Themed Valentine’s Day Cards

I collect about a million different things and of course vintage Valentine cards are on that list.  There are so many sweet ones in my stash with all kinds of cute themes but sewing kept calling my name.  Cute little girls stitching away for their beloveds.  You could scan in your collection or there are plenty of digital downloads to be had on Etsy.  I enlarged my Valentine’s Day cards before I printed them and then glued them to cardstock so they would be stiff.

Easy Valentine’s Day Ornaments

Not just vintage sewing themed Valentine’s and toy sewing machines I needed a few ornaments too!  My best friend the pompom makes an appearance PLUS a pink measuring tape and the easiest wooden spool ornaments ever.  I used these spools from Amazon and just hot glued red striped ribbon to them.  All that was left to do was stick them on the ends of a few garland branches!

Garlands are Low Commitment Holiday Decor

I love the low commitment of decorating with garlands and wreaths instead of a full blown Valentine’s Day tree.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a tree as much as the next guy but for smaller holidays like Valentine’s Day a garland, wreath or mini tree is perfect!

Wouldn’t you love a box like this for Valentine’s Day?  A crafty girls dream come true!  Really I just wanted an excuse to bust out my one of my favorite collections – vintage Valentine’s Day candy boxes.  Oh the lace, flowers and plastic – they just don’t make them like they used to!  Luckily you can always give a box of Valentine’s Day Candy a Makeover.

I’m always changing things around in my Dreambox.  I have way more craft supplies and craft books than I could keep inside so when I change them out for the holidays it gives me an excuse to flip through and get ideas or have new mediums at arms reach making it much more likely I’ll give those paint sticks a spin.
