Valentine’s Day is a month away.
In truth, it’s not my most favorite holiday. I like the sentiment, I just think we should let people know we love them a little more regularly than when Hallmark tells us to.
That said, if my husband wants to shower me with gifts, I won’t turn them down! Also, my kids love Valentine’s Day, so I’m getting into the spirit of things – on my terms.
First up, flowers. I treated myself to some happy yellow roses from Trader Joe’s. $5 in that cute little tin! Don’t mind if I do! Yellow roses remind me of sunshine and definitely brighten up a dreary winter day.
I ruled out the ubiquitous mylar balloon and decided to go more understated with a decorative plant stake.
Since the mylar balloon was out, pink and red were out as well. Too predictable. I do enjoy turquoise though!
To make these plant stakes, all you need are wooden skewers, card stock, scissors and a glue gun.
I cut out a variety of paper hearts, glued them to the skewer, stuck the finished product in the plant and called it good!
Easy and cheap. The craft. Not me! 😉
