Hearts + Holiday = HOLIDAY LOVE! Who doesn’t like hearts? If you answered “me” to that question, you realize that makes you “heartless” and “cold-hearted”!!!

Put a heart on something and it just becomes sort of warm and fuzzy! I am SO all about Valentines’ Day – if you follow me on Pinterest, you know how much I love hearts – I have a board dedicated to them! There are so many things  I cannot wait to write about for Valentine’s Day, but the first is going to just scratch the surface – Valentine’s Day crafts! These are all fun, easy and family friendly! New Year’s is over and it is time for some Valentine’s Day baby!!!!

(BTW – Love Valentine’s Day too – check out my Valentine’s posts – Valentine’s Day Treats & Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Classroom Gifts

Heart Garland

This is SO smart and so easy! Just go raid your local Home Depot and/or Lowe’s for some paint chips and use a heart puncher and string together! heart-garland

Crayon Hearts

This was one of my first Pinterest projects. My friend Maria and I made these for our kids class. They were very easy and super cute. All you need is lots and lots of crayons (this is a great way to use all of those broken crayons) and a heart brownie tray – I got mine at either Target or Michaels (can’t remember). You just cut up the crayons into little pieces and put them in the brownie tray. Use dark and light colored mixed together. The yellows, pinks and whites really brighten up the finished product. Bake at 230 degrees for about 15 minutes (although I think it took us closer to 20). Warming – your house will stink AND you will never want to use this tray for anything again other than heart crayons! crayone hearts
