Chinese New Year Paper Lanterns

Now this is a really cute and low cost idea to help celebrate the Chinese New Year this month! All you need is some construction paper, scissors, stapler, ruler, tape, and some assorted sequins, glitter or other embellishments to decorate your lanterns. This is a fun idea I think that my nieces and I will work on during their next overnight visits.

Valentine's Wreath & Frame

Now here is a project I absolutely love the look of and hope to accomplish during this wonderful season of love. Check out the pretty photo below and visit the bloggers link to learn how to make your own pretty wreath frame!

Coffee Filter Snowflake Valentines

What a charming and easy idea for the upcoming Valentine Holiday.
These would be a great craft project for the little ones.
Let them cut out their own designs with kid safe scissors and do the glue work!

Modge Podge Candle Holders

Here is a cute idea that you could adapt to any occasion.
Search thrift shops and dollar stores for clear glass candle holders or containers and pick up some cute scrapbooking papers or print them out on your computer at home. Wouldn't some of these be cute with birthday themed papers to celebrate your loved ones special day? You could even use some little sequins or flat backed rhinestones glued onto the outside for some extra glitz!

Heart Wall Lamp

For just a few dollars and a little time, you can make this cute heart lamp for your wall, it would look so cute at night all lit up. Snuggle with your honey and put on a romantic movie and light this sweet lamp up to celebrate your love.

Sticker Charm Bracelet

This is such a cute method of making a quick charm bracelet to wear for Valentine's Day with your sweetie. Or think beyond this holiday and create them for different seasons or occasions. How about a cute nautical themed bracelet to celebrate an upcoming vacation cruise? Or celebrate your love for your furry friends by creating a cat, dog or other animal themed bracelet. What a great idea!

"Love" Printable

Bloggin With Bobbi has a free love themed printable,
available in two colors and two different sizes.
You could also recolor this as you wish in any graphics editing program.
I think I will do mine in black and white or a country brown color.
