As we were searching Romantic Decorations for a Valentines Day shoot that we had and we just couldn’t find the right decorations that touched the mood of the shoot. We wanted something personal and that touched our family so we went though our family history books and found some letters that my great father wrote to his young wife just after he came home from World War I and was injured and in a hospital. I think it is super romantic!
What You Will Need To Make Romantic Decorations:
Letters (I used 10 photocopies of old letters from my great grandfather to my great grandmother when he was in the hospital after WWI war but you can use however many you want). You could even use some french script wrapping paper as a background or letters from your spouse, scrapbook paper from the store. Be creative with it.
A large sheet of paper
A frame (This one is old from a yard sale)
A small heart or small pair of wings
Check the sheet of paper to the frame to get an idea of how it will fit. Now lay the paper in front of you and lay out the letters the way you like them. Now glue them in place and allow to dry for at least 20 minutes. My frame didn’t have the glass or a back so I taped mine to the back of the frame. Now if you use a heart you are going to want to use something stronger then tape (Trust me I learned this one the hard way). If you use wings you can just tie them on. And you are done!
