Valentine Heart Favors

Valentine Heart Favors

These cute little heart favors are easy to put together. Mom usually gives a little something to a few of your best friends. They give each other small and inexpensive gifts.

I had some light and dark pink felt and thought some hearts would be the perfect gift. I was going to make them a stuffed Valentine heart and then decided to make them so we could put some candy in them.

I cut out a heart on some paper and used that for my pattern.  I had some Valentine supplies to decorate the hearts with. I got them from the Dollar Tree last year.  The stickers have backing on them so they stuck to the felt. I also used some pink pipe cleaners.

I used a blanket stitch around the heart, leaving the top open.  On one of them, I used a running stitch, but liked the blanket stitch better. 
Either one works or you could even glue them closed.

Once I had stitched them closed, I hot glued the pipe cleaners to each side of the heart.  If you don't have any pipe cleaners, you could always use some ribbon.

Now it was time to add the candy. We found lollipop and smarties at the Dollar Tree. She had some Dove heart chocolates. We also had a bag of mixed Hersey mini chocolates.

We took them around to her neighbors and if they were not home, we hung them on the door knob. 

These would be great as favors on a table or for kids to give other students. A little something to give.

My Valentine White Box

I don't decorate a lot for Valentine's Day. A few things here and there. When my neighbor was throwing out this white box, I knew it would make a nice Valentine decoration.

Simple LOVE Sign

Many of you have been posting wonderful Valentine's Day ideas. I am not doing too much this year since I will be out of town during that time. I have some decorations from last year, but wanted something new. While cleaning in the garage, I came across these old rulers and this board. Just maybe?

Beadboard Valentine

 Last  week as I was cleaning out my barn, I found many small pieces of wood trim. If you saw My Unordinary Valentine, you know that I used the trim pieces to make that valentine. I found a piece of bead board that we used in the bathroom. My husband cut this piece wrong and we were going to throw it out, but I thought it might make another valentine for the front door at our other house. This one is a more traditional valentine.

Red roses proclaim "I love you."

Red Roses Proclaim I Love You

They are the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion.

Florists say they can not keep enough roses in stock for Valentine's Day. In fact, it is estimated that about 2 billion dollars will be spent on flowers alone in 2013.
