Make it Monday // Valentine's Day Safety Pin Sweater

This week is Valentine's Day!! What? Can you believe it!  I'm pretty sure if we're not spending this weekend putting down the baseboards, we'll be doing our annual Valentine's Day pasta making.  (You can find last year's yummy post here.)
I stumbled upon this wonderful Safety Pin Heart Sweater DIY over on Trinkets in Bloom & fell in love!  When we were in Virginia for Christmas I stopped by Forever21 to shop their plus section - which I love! - and found this awesome heart sweater.  I usually don't pick up sweaters because I feel that they don't flatter me well...but this one I couldn't resist.  I've been wearing it way too much.  Last week when we were in Wisconsin, I wore it all week! I decided to spruce it up even more for Valentine's Day with a safety pin heart!

I followed the tutorial but added a smaller heart inside of the bigger heart, in small gold safety pins since I was running out of bigger safety pins!!

I had to keep fiddling with the heart shape to make sure it was staying in a heart shape.  I also think I may try it again by outlining just a small heart in gold safety pins!  There are so many shapes & outlines you can add with safety pins.  I'm so glad I found this awesome DIY to share with you!

Happy Valentine's Day!
