I like everything to be bright and colorful, including my food! It doesn’t take much to make boring brown chocolates look bright and cheery. This Valentine’s Day I am giving my daughter little treats spread out throughout the month. Nothing expensive just little gifts to show her I care. She will be getting stickers, a little puzzle, figurines, and of course her favorite is the chocolates. Honestly, it’s my favorite part of Valentine’s Day too! The best part of giving her this box of chocolates was when she opened it up and was completely shocked by the fun colors. I made these with a dollar store chocolate box. Buy a bunch of little chocolate boxes to hand out to friends or family, the more the merrier! Anyone could make colorful chocolates with these easy steps, trust me if I can do it you can too. I made them for my daughter in her favorite colors pink and turquoise. However, you could use any colors you want such as red and white for Valentine’s Day. You can also buy a bag of heart shaped chocolates and then put the finished colorful chocolates in little clear bags.
I’ve been decorating for Valentine’s Day and I wanted to have a few decorations that I made myself. I decided to make these crepe paper flower and ruffle letters. I have wanted to make crepe paper flowers for a while and I am so glad I made them. I did the ruffle letter as well to save some time since the flowers take a while to make. Although I really enjoyed making them. I just put on some music and played around with crepe paper flowers, that is my idea of a fun night! The great thing about these is they were cheap to make and you don’t need a ton of materials.
I just love how these you have a pizza my heart cookies turned out! I am not an expert cookie maker yet, although after these I am working on my cookie decorating skills. There are just so many cute things you can make with cookies. Since I am not a cookie expert I know you can make these even if you are a cookie decorating newbie! If you know someone that loves pizza these are really cute to make for them. Also they can be my heart belongs to pizza(because really it does) for a Galentines Day party. I may be sing but I have pizza so I’m good. Plus I can eat pizza in my pjs looking like a hot mess and no one can judge me. It’s the little pleasures in life like that I enjoy. I made these cookies with sugar cookies and red and white royal icing.
These candy love bugs are cute and easy to make. I made them with my little love bug :). My obsession with candy eyes continues because they just make everything cute! I made lady bugs candies for my daughter’s first birthday a while back. She is 4 now so wow more than 3 years ago! Now she is a big helper making candy with me. Ok she’s a helper for a minute then she gets bored and I finish up. Luckily these love bugs are easy to make and no baking involved.
What you need to make them:
Love is in the air! Have you been shot by cupid’s arrow? I made these fun diy cupid’s arrows and shot them through some heart shaped cupcakes. You can also put them in other Valentine’s Day foods. Even health foods because apparently you can’t always have cupcakes. They are easy to make and really fun for Valentine’s Day parties.
What you need to make them:
pink or red paper straws
Cut paper straws into pieces about an inch and a half long. Stick a heart sticker facing down to the top of on of the straw pieces and one facing down on the bottom of another piece of straw. Cut the top rounded part of the heart on the bottom piece. Then cut small slits lined up down one side and down the other.
How fun are these funny Valentine lollipops!? They are really fun to make with kids and a super easy do it yourself valentine. You can also make little tags that say you are my funny Valentine or something silly! Valentines Day is coming up and I have some fun little projects that I know you will love. Valentines is fun with kids because it is all about the candy and cute things. The fun thing with these lollipops is you can get creative and make any kind of silly face using different materials. However, the googly eyes are a must! In my world googly eyes are always a must ;).
