It’s cupid time again and I’m looking forward to sharing some quality craft time with the kiddos. Well, that and consuming mass quantities of chocolate! Each year we make the heart cookies, handmade valentine’s, etc. This year I’m on a mission to try something new and slightly more advanced for the kids. I hopped on Disney’s FamilyFun.com website and found some super cute craft ideas I’d like to share.
The first is a captive heart charm made from a small heart cookie cutter, craft wire, heart shaped cardstock, heart shaped chocolate candy, and ribbon. They show it as more of an ornament, but I’m planning on turning it into a one-of-a-kind necklace for my daughter. She’s my little chocoholic, so I’m sure she’ll enjoy being able to eat the pendant at the end of the day!
Maybe I’m just a sucker for anything leopard print, but I am lovin’ these bracelets! They are made from a cardboard paper towel tube which is absolutely brilliant. Just round up some black elastic, leopard print felt (any color will do), ribbon, glue, a stapler, card stock and you’re good to go.
Definitely going to have the kids make these super sweet necklaces for grandma! My boys will get a huge kick out of being able to give “jewels” to the ladies in their life. Tip: Instead of using the plastic wrap, I just tied all the hard candy pieces together with ribbon. I then added different colored bows to fill in the space between each piece of candy. Have fun with it!
