While making our crayon hearts, we thought that it would be awesome to also do them with our little nieces. We decided to make a mocktail for them that is not only delicious, but also spicy. It turns out that it’s also low in calories and not too sugary. This is the perfect recipe for a Valentine’s Day party! Read more →

Over the holidays, Alberto spent most of the time on the floor coloring with our nieces and nephews. (He gets a little competitive, and I had to praise him often for coloring inside the lines…) So when it came to Valentine’s Day, Alberto immediately thought about coloring with the kids. We used the leftover crayons that we had after the holidays, and melted them down to create cute little heart gifts for the kids. Then Alberto had the great idea to personalize them using glitter letters. This was such an easy project, and they make great little V-day gifts. You can even include the kids! Read more →

We recently went to Michaels to and ran across these cute little paper cupcake liners with X’s and O’s all over them. They were so cute that we couldn’t pass them up. Then it struck us…why not use them to make the wreath?! We picked up some pipe cleaners, and we were off! When we got home, I started playing around with the liners to try making a cone, but it wasn’t really working. But as I was playing with them, it occurred to me that I could add a couple of more liners, and they look very similar to carnations. Then it all came together at once. We are making a carnation wreath using cupcake liners! Read more →

Valentine’s Day Wreath

Categories: Featured, Holidays, Winter, WreathsTags: , , , , Author:

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it’s the perfect excuse to sate our wreath-making obsession! We haven’t had a wreath since the holidays, so we were already itching to have another one for the house. Alberto has been wanting to do a project with some leftover sisal rope and this wreath seemed perfect to try it. All we did was wrap the wreath in rope, paint it pink, add a little sash, satin, and bling…and voila! An over-the-top wreath for Valentine’s Day that is perfect to inspire a little love in the air! (and which will hopefully live on as a picture frame too!) Read more →
