With Valentine’s Day upon us – you can make some fun crafts or decorations for your home and/or those you love. For that matter, you could even sell your creations.
Here’s a Couple of Craft Ideas/Gifts:
Make a heart wreath. Start with the wire heart seen above. Figure out your base (moss glued to a piece of cardboard in the same shape, attached to the form using craft wire; burlap ribbon, silk flowers), add roses, teddy bears, heart picks, bows, candy – anything that appeals to your senses – attach with craft wire or a glue gun.
Alternatively, you could make a mug bouquet. Start with a mug, add Styrofoam inside (to hold your picks in place) attach a teddy bear (only one of many stuffed animals to chose from – there are monkeys, love bugs, chocolate scented teddies) to a pick with craft wire, add roses or heart picks (or both), glue candy to a pick(s), add moss around the top of the mug or roses around the top (cut off the stems and glue or just cut the stems shorter and insert), attach a Valentine’s Card and you’ll have yourself a gift.
Another idea – that red bottle you see in the banner below, the heart shaped one – turn that into a vase for a single rose and Baby’s Breath or add some lantern oil and a wick (the one with the plastic circle at the top that keeps the wick straight and in place), add some ribbon and you’ve got a nice center piece for dinner or a party.
Craft and Save with Friends
If you haven’t the need for so many supplies – ask a couple of friends to join in on the crafting and split the cost. Maybe you’re a teacher and other teachers would like to save some money too. Or maybe there’s a party you’ll be attending where the tables could be spruced up (check out the dining supplies – DT has many) – the centerpieces could be your contribution.
The Dollar Tree has a multitude of craft/decorating/celebration supplies for not only Valentine’s Day, but for other upcoming special events/day – Mardi Gras, 2/28; St. Patty’s Day, 3/17; and Easter, 4/16.
