Last Minute Valentine's Day Crafts

A few weeks ago, I learned that one of my children's classrooms didn't have a party planner for their Valentine's Party.  Even though I was planning Mallory's party (with the help of several awesome Mommies) I took the challenge.

Heck yeah!  I can plan two Valentine's Day Parties that are on the same day and 3 hours apart.

You know me....I can't back down from a challenge.  Or Wine.

The thing is, you could do it too.  You just have to be organized and own a calendar and a list.

One thing I did was decorate some water bottles.  Michaels sent me an email last week with the project idea and I knew I had to do it.  Plus, I had also just viewed that horrible picture about moldy juice boxes on facebook! GROSS!

I love how they turned out.  Please note that if you wait until the Saturday before Valentine's Day to buy your decorative paper, it will be sold out.   Luckily, I had picked up a little pack of paper at the Target Dollar Spot.  TARGET FOR THE WIN!

Another little project that I made this month was a picture frame.  I love conversation hearts but my family doesn't.  I found myself with this giant bag and knew I couldn't eat them all.  Well....I mean, I Could.  But No.  I decided to glue those suckers to a $1 picture from from Michaels.  If I were to do this craft again....I'd paint the frame first.  Bygones.

I feel like I got my crafting MoJo back!!

Thank you Mom who dropped out of planning the Valentine Party!


  1. "You just have to be organized and own a calendar and a list." - if everyone would just treat this as a life mantra, the world would be a better place, people need to be like us and embrace the list!

    Those bottles are so stinkin' cute!

  2. Love the water bottle idea! Afraid I would eat the frame during TOM though. ;)

  3. Ah, LOVE the picture frame... and that's coming from a girl who HATES Vday. haha! Such a cute idea :)
