I love having traditions. Traditions are a great way for friends and family to connect and share with one another. Traditions seem especially important now that we are all somewhat disconnected because of the pandemic and stay-at-home orders.
I was inspired by a Facebook craft group I belong to to start a new family tradition. A woman in the group posted photos of a family art competition they do every year for Christmas. Their art had to be inspired by their Mexican heritage and all the pieces were amazing. I talked to my daughter and niece and asked if they would be interested in doing something similar. We all agreed it would be fun. We invited a few other family members as well.
Instead of making something for Christmas, we decided that we would do a yearly Valentine project. We are calling it the Festival of Hearts. Every year we will create a heart in whatever style we choose. We all got large papier-mâché hearts to decorate. We gave ourselves a few weeks to make them and this is what we came up with to spread a little Valentine love!
Below are what we made, all unique and beautiful!
