Valentine Mitten Garland

Materials:

Pencil

Scissors/Pinking Shears

Quilt batting

Red felt

Needle and ivory thread

Jute

Mini clothespins

I drew a small mitten pattern with a pencil and then traced it so the mittens would be similar. I also cut the bottom of the mittens with pinking shears to give them a decorative edge.

Here are some process photos!  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Small Notebooks Wrapped Up for Valentine’s Day

On the clearance aisles of office supply and craft stores, you’ll often find inexpensive notebooks. I found these tiny pink notebooks on a clearance aisle at Office Depot for .70.  I wrapped them with glassine kraft paper, ribbon, crepe paper flowers, crochet lace, and some cuts of old pink sweater (I used cuts of this same sweater in a former post).  It only took a few minutes to turn these inexpensive notebooks into lovely Valentine gifts!

“You Knock My Socks Off”- Recycled Sweater Valentines

I love all the cute boot socks available these days, especially the ones with sweet crochet trim around the edges. I decided to make some small Valentine’s Day cards with some tiny boot socks by recycling a soft, pink sweater.

Tiny Boat Tags With Walnut Shells

DSCF4607

To make these tiny little boat tags you’ll need:

Halved walnut shells

Acrylic paints and brush

Cotton cloth/Fabric Scissors

Toothpicks

Air-dry clay for the tops of the masts.

Blank tags, red and blue cardstock

Red ribbon

Hot glue gun

You can make these simply, leaving the shells natural and attaching the cloth sails.  Or you can go “overboard” like I did and paint them up and decorate the sails to match!  These tiny boats would make adorable tags for baby boy gifts and sweet Valentine’s tags for everyone!  Attach them to red boxes of chocolates, blue bags of truffles, or a giant silver chocolate kiss.

And be sure to tell them, “You Float My Boat Valentine!”  :)

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
