Jackson (my Kindergartener) vetoed the Fruity Valentine idea so we decided to decorate rocks instead. I got this idea here at Red Bird Crafts. Sooo cute! And easy! Jackson came home and didn't mention anything about them, so I'm assuming his classmates liked them and there was no rock throwing going on in class. Guess I would have gotten an email from the teacher if that had happened.
I ran with the chalkboard speech bubble idea from earlier this month and made 18 of them for Wesley's classmates last week. They each wrote a special message to their parents and I took pictures of them. We also made these twisty yarn picture clips. A sweet, sentimental gift for Mom and Dad.
Twisty Yarn Picture Clips How to:
• sturdy coated wire (from the hardware store. The same stuff I used for the LOVE sign)
• some paper clips (clothespins would work great too!)
• twist-on wire connectors (also from the hardware store)
Tape the paper clip to one end of the coated wire. Wrap the yarn tightly through the paper clip and around the wire until it is completely covered. Snip the yarn and twist on a wire connector. Then twist it to your "heart's" desire!
And I'm calling it a day. Sweet!
