A Valentine’s Day Throwback

Last year, my blog was pretty small and new, so most of you may have missed the cute projects I did and the fun party we had.  I thought I would share them with you in case you needed some extra inspiration this Valentine’s Day.
Cecelia wanted to make a special treat for her friends, so we created these gumball ribbon necklaces.  We used a needle to pierce holes in a gumball and strung them on a ribbon with knots between each gumball.  One one side, we clipped a felt flower hairclip that the girls could use after.
Another cute gift idea would be the favours that we gave out at our Valentine’s Day party – it’s a homemade sparkly scented playdough with a heart shaped cookie cutter tied to the bottle with a pink ribbon.  You can click on the image to get the recipe.
My Valentine’s Day Wreath was a big hit last year, I’m still debating reusing it again this year instead of making a new one.  To find out how to make one for yourself, click on the image below.
The best thing about last valentine’s day was our big Lovebirds themed birthday party that my daughter had with some of her friends from school.  It was so much fun and full of really fun DIY projects.  You can see more pictures by clicking on the image below.
Looking back on all of these things makes me want to throw another party!  Hmm… maybe an Easter one this year?
