Today we’re sharing the easiest of all Valentine crafts! All you need are some pencils and some pipe cleaners! You may love this little detail so much you’ll leave it in your pencil cup all year round… First, bend the pipe cleaner in half and curve the two halves around to create a heart shape. At the base of the heart, wrap the excess pipe cleaner around the pencil to hide the loose ends. That’s all you need to create these simple and sweet pencils. What other projects are you working on for Valentine’s Day? We’d love to hear!
Looking for some sweet treats for your valentines? We’ve got you covered with these delicious s’mores kits! We even personalized them using Places for Faces and you can too! Here’s how… Supplies: cellophane treat bags (we used the ones for pretzel rods), fun-sized chocolate bars, heart-shaped Peep marshmallows, graham crackers, baker’s twine, and Places for Faces favor tags. All you need to do to create these tasty valentines is assemble the bags! We found that the marshmallow would stick to the sides of the bag, so we dipped the sticky side in granulated sugar before putting it in the plastic bag. Once the bags are finished, head over to Places for Faces and create your own custom favor tags! There are lots of Valentine’s Day stickers
Candy bouquets are the best kind of bouquets, don’t you think? These DIY Tootsie Pop flowers are so easy to assemble and make the sweetest gift for Valentine’s Day. Here’s how to make your own… Supplies: Lollipops, red felt, scissors, and an X-acto knife. Directions: 1. Cut a flower shape out one shade of felt and a smaller flower shape out of another shade. 2. Use an X-acto knife to cut a small X shape in the center of each flower. 3. Stack the flowers on top of each other and insert the lollipop stick into the center cuts. That’s it! For extra sturdiness you can add a bit of glue to the base of the lollipop (make sure to keep it on the wrapper!)
