I’m kinda OCD when it comes to the decor I have in my home. Seasonal holidays usually make me nervous because I like what I have displayed and don’t really want to change it! Anyone relate?

Valentine decor can be especially challenging! However this cute little mixed fabric hoop with a simple heart can stay all year round if I wanted. It also makes my wall look festive for Valentine’s Day. Winning.

Before you get started, you might wondering if you have to use Fabric Mod Podge. The answer is no. I happen to have it, and so I used it to attach fabric to fabric.

Having said that, this valentine decor isn’t ever going to be washed, which is the bonus of the Fabric formula. If you’re not going to wash it, you can use Gloss, Satin, etc. This is actually really fun with Sparkle Mod Podge. It’s up to you!
