An easy-to-create heart chalkboard. The blog post describes using it for Valentine's day, but you can use it around the house any time of the year or in the classroom for a note to the class or a reminder. Super cute and easy!
Crayon Heart Valentines. An old idea, but one that has not lost its "fun-easy-affordable" factors; especially when combined with a day of crafting with the kids. You can't put a price tag on that! Whipperberry makes it enticingly attractive.
Valentine's Day craft. To make one heart – clip off a floral wire of proper length and bend it into a heart shape. Next, tie yarn onto that heart and pull yarn across it. After that do the same for other side of the heart. Tie a knot and cut yarn with enough length for hanging. You’re done. Repeat the process as many times as many hearts you want to see on your windows.
(Used this mostly as inspiration for Ellie's 1st birthday banner.) Didn't use paint-chips. (Seriously people, that's basically stealing.) Cut hearts with Cricut (about 2.5"). Cut "Happy Birthday" w/ Cricut (1.5"). Glued letters to hearts, punched holes in the tops and strung coordinating ribbon through to hang. Took two hours, off and on.
