Promotional Bunting

With one of my other endeavours, The Westside’s Story, I hosted a Day Camp Fair a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for something really dynamic to go in the window as promotion for the event. And then I thought, why not get crafty? So I whipped up some basic, construction paper bunting. This is so easy, and can be used for a myriad of occasions, including birthdays, celebrations, and personal declarations for Valentine’s Day (e.g. I LOVE [lover’s name here] displayed prominently in your front window to embarrass your spouse)!

Roundup: Quick Little Valentine’s Day Crafts

Okay, I’ll admit I’m one of those people that doesn’t do Valentine’s Day crafts – I’m into the cinnamon hearts for sure, but stockpiling red and pink paper for the day has never been on my mind. Where does one find the time? The space for the supplies? That was my excuse – until now. Contemporary, simple, and not at all frilly, these are my kinds of Valentines – graphic, fun, and I love how they use up scraps and little bits I have hanging around. Oh, and did I mention they are quick? If you haven’t already made plans for next weekend, why not spend a “crafternoon” making Valentines? Whether you host a Valentine’s craft date, or set up an independent activity for your kids, here are some easy little projects you can quickly craft up.

Valentine’s Day Candy Jar Centrepieces

I’ve been slacking a little bit when it comes to Valentine’s Day décor. Every year since my eldest was born, my mom has come over and decorated my house. Seriously. So this year, I wanted to try something a little fun for the boys that they could help create too. I’m just hoping it will last until the end of the month…I’ve caught all three “boys” with their hands in the candy jar tonight alone!

Hearts String | Valentine Garland

With some sadness, I removed my Christmas garland and cards from the kitchen window suddenly leaving it rather naked. It was then that I decided we needed a Valentine’s garland to cushion my post-Christmas-decor-removal-blues. A few hours of felt cutting,  hand stitching and mini pompom-making later my window was smiling again.
