Something to enjoy with the whole family and the kids won’t be able to hold their excitement! Why not set out a tray of chocolates to go with your decadent drinks and tantalise the whole family!
2. Flower Wreath
Use bunches of artificial flowers to make elegant wreaths for your walls or front door. Kids will love displaying this lovely puffy heart wreath of flowers , and it’s one of the least expensive things you can make. Use wire framing to create a good base for the flowers to sit on. You can pick up foam flowers in different colours to create a really neat looking wreath and customise it to your own interior.
Fire up your hot glue gun and glue around the edge of the bottom of one of your foam roses. Add the flowers one by one onto the wire wreath. The kids can glue them onto the structure and fill it in with a variety of colours or keep it one tone. Be careful as the glue gun can become hot.
3. Lace Candles
Candles create a really special ambiance – they can make your home cozy, beautiful and warm. To decorate your house for Valentine’s Day, these lace motif candle holders are just the thing to add lustre into your home. They add a romantic and cosy atmosphere and can be easily created with some scraps of lace, mason jars, thread, and a hot glue gun. Easy on the pocket, the variations are limitless and the satisfaction is guaranteed!
