Make DIY Unicorn Valentines from Foam Hearts

I bet you thought I was done with unicorn themed crafts, but… surprise! Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that only inspired my girls and I to make yet another magical unicorn craft. All three of my daughters are obsessed with the mystical creatures, so they were so excited when I asked them to help me come up with a Valentine’s Day gift idea that featured them. Using mostly supplies we had on hand, we created these adorable little unicorn Valentines made out of foam hearts that feature twisty pops as unicorn horns. They’re quick to make, really unique, and a fun craft to do with the kids.Continue reading

Make a Chunky Crochet Heart Banner

Valentine’s Day is one of our favourite holidays around here! Ever since they were little, my girls loved to decorate for it and celebrate it together as a family. We like to litter hearts everywhere, bake special treats, and my hubby always buys our girls special gifts to express his love for them. It’s the cutest thing EVER! Five years ago, I crocheted an adorable mini hearts banner which I still use to this day. You can find that project here. This year, I thought I’d recreate the banner with extra chunky yarn to give it a whole different look. And you can’t have to many heart banners to decorate with, am I right?!

A Romantic & Inexpensive Floral Valentine’s Tablescape

I’m a sucker for romance. Give me ALL of the roses, candles, twinkling lights, poetry, and soft music, please! I almost like saving money as much as I like romance, so this year I gave myself the challenge of creating a dreamy, Valentine’s Day tablescape using only items I had on hand. Surprisingly, I think it turned out looking really lovely, and I’m excited to enjoy it this month as we celebrate love!Continue reading
