Valentine's Decorations

I've been trying to make some cute Valentine's Day decorations -- I don't know about you, but I always feel like my house is so EMPTY after putting away the Christmas decorations. So here's what I came up with:

I made a bunch of crocheted balls in different sizes and colors, and put them all in this hurricane jar. But it needed something with it, so I made this cute little bunny, too :) I like her earrings :)
Close-up of the bunny. You can't really tell, but her nose is a heart, too.
I also made some felt-covered balls that I hung from my dining room light fixture. I got the idea from this blog: The Idea Room
I didn't buy enough felt to make three balls like I wanted to, so I cut the scraps into hearts and just pinned them to the third ball. Kinda retarded. But kinda cute :)
Gray and I are gonna make a construction-paper heart garland later on today. I'll post a picture here when we finish it :)
******OO, just found this GORGEOUS Valentine card wreath! I think I need it!! Now, how do I MAKE it.........hmmmmm........

If anyone's interested, I got it of this website here: WILLIAMS SONOMA
Anyone have any other ideas for cute decorations??

Oh WOW Mantha, you're too good. I need some ambition to get home-making some goods. Watch out! They're going to nab you for teaching at a super Saturday or something!
but ps, speaking of Christmas decorations, I just got a darling metal star for 90% off. Which meant 3 bucks. And it's cute for all year! Go to Kohl's.
