Valentine’s Day Crafts

This month we celebrate the day of love. We can love so many ways in this life. We have hearts that can grow with love everyday. A heart never stops growing, there is room for so much love. In my life alone I love my mom, my dad, my brothers, my sisters, my husband, my daughter, my sons, my dogs, my best friends. Love is endless.

 

Love can be expressed in so many ways. It doesn’t always have to be with money. During the holidays we can get caught up with spending money to show our love and appreciation. But our love can be shown through acts of love as well. I adore when my husband does things for me around the house, I adore when my daughter helps take care of her younger brother, and I love when they work on things together to make me smile.

 

This heart string craft is the perfect craft for valentines day. It is simple, fun, and it embodies love. It does require nails and a hammer, so a parent may want to help with this craft. But once the nails are set the string is very fun to assemble.

 

Thank you to Reality DayDream for the simple beginner string craft. Be sure to head over to Reality DayDream and see all of the other fun crafts you can try at home. We promise you will LOVE it.

 

Heart Hedgehog Craft

I love a good holiday craft. Raise your hand if you are one of those moms that decorates for every holiday. GUILTY! I love to see the decorations and feel a little uplifted by the sweet colors and cheery appearance.

 

I especially love it when my kids art crafts are displayed for the holiday season. I love to look at their little crafts and remember the day we made them, how old they were, and see how much they have grown.

 

I try to do crafts with my kids at home. Even if it is only something small. For Valentine’s Day this year I wanted to do something different. Not the routine heart designs. That is when I happened upon this adorable Heart Hedgehog craft. It has the traditional heart and colors of Valentine’s day, but the little hedgehog is just so darling I couldn’t stand it — I just had to have it.

Thank you to Fireflies and Mudpies for such a sweet and out of the box idea for my February craft. Now I have a brand new memory and a brand new craft to display every February.

Summer Craft DIY: Sunflower Plates

I don’t know about you, but we have a lot of summer days that are just too hot for us to be outdoors. On those days we sometimes enjoy staying indoors. We enjoy creating arts and crafts projects in the nice comfortable air conditioned house.

This fun sunflower plates project still makes us feel as if we are enjoying nature with its beautiful sunflower theme. Thank you to The Resourceful Mama for a great indoor project that still beckons us to the sweetness that is summer.

Sunflowers are a great part of summer. Here they grow wild in fields. You can also plant them at home and see them bloom in your very own garden.

This craft is very simple to follow and brings those beautiful summer blooms indoors. Head on over to  The Resourceful Mama for a great tutorial.
