How to Make Candy Heart Cake Bunting

Cake bunting made out of candy heart

Virginie, from That Cute Little Cake with a "sweet" way to decorate your Valentine's Day cake. How adorable is this!

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to decorate a cake this Valentine's Day, then I have just the right thing for you: candy cake bunting!!!

Cake bunting (little decorations strung on top of cakes) has been so popular these past couple of years, that I could not resist revisiting the concept... And since Valentine's Day is all about candy, this is exactly what I used to create those sweet decorations!

Supplies:

  • Candy (gummy hearts, marshmallow... any soft candy you like)
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Paper straws or skewers

Simply thread several candies and secure both ends to a straw or skewer. You may want to use a thimble to protect your fingers while threading, going through the candy is a little tough.

Experiment with different types of candy to find the combination you like! Here are some different variations I tried.

What foods do I love on Valentine's Day? Mouthwatering sweets and desserts! I put together this collection on Foodie.com of some of my favorite Valentine's Day treats, or as I like to call the collection, "14 Valentine's Day Desserts that Will Make You Fall in Love!"

The photos themselves make my heart beat a little faster and give me that tiny flutter in my stomach. Kind of feels like falling in love, doesn't it?

I'll be in Hawaii with my husband and daughter on Valentine's Day this year. If that's not an indulgence in itself, I don't know what is. But I plan for us to celebrate with a special dinner and big decadent dessert. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see all the gory details. http://instagram.com/catchmyparty

{DIY} How to Make a Felt Rose Wreath

diy-rose-wreath-title

I'm always looking for new ways I can decorate my daughter's room, so I thought a simple wreath with felt flowers to hang on her wall would be easy and look sweet. This wreath could also work for a "girly" birthday, baby shower, or even as a Valentine's Day decoration.

MATERIALS

  • Styrofoam ring
  • 1.5" silk ribbon in white
  • 1" silk ribbon in light pink
  • Pins
  • Felt
  • Glue
rose-wreath-5A

INSTRUCTIONS

Use a pin to secure your 1.5 inch white silk ribbon on the side of the wreath that will be the back. Then wrap the ribbon around the ring until it is completely covered. Next use the 1 inch pink silk ribbon to wrap on top.

rose-wreath-6A

To make the flowers, I cut felt into round spirals, then starting at the center of the spiral, I wound the felt until it looked like a rose.

rose-wreath-7A

I secured it with glue. Then used a pin to pin the rose into the wreath. I was able to stick the pin in deep to hide it.

rose-wreath-11A

I made the spirals in different sizes so my flowers would be varied sizes.

Finally I attached a pink lace ribbon for hanging and glued three hearts I cut out freehand on top.

I love how it turned out, and so does my daughter, Lainey!

{DIY} Valentine's Day Card-Making Table

I'm so excited to introduce our new contributor, my friend Rachelle Doorley and the creative mind behind Tinkerlab, a site filled with fantastic ideas for creating child-directed art projects and experiments.

Valentines Day Card Making Table

Valentine's Day with kids doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most successful.

When we have friends over for Valentine's Day, a favorite activity is the do-it-yourself Valentine table.

Valentine Card Making Table Doily

You can think of this card-making table as an open-ended art-making experience that builds creative thinking skills by enabling children to make choices and develop their own ideas.

And it doesn't hurt that it takes me back to the doily and paper heart Valentines of my own childhood.

MATERIALS:

  • Pre-made blank cards or cardstock cut into card-size pieces
  • Self-inking Valentine stamps or stamps and ink pads
  • Variety of decorative paper. Some ideas: wrapping paper, tissue paper, scrapbook paper, candy foil wrappers, doilies
  • Treasures. Some ideas: googly eyes, sequins, foam hearts, stickers
  • Glue sticks
  • Markers
  • Child-friendly scissors
  • Near-by waste basket to collect scraps
Valentine Card Making Table

SET UP:

Set up a station for each child. If you don't have enough materials for each child to have their own (scissors or glue, for example), place those in the middle of the table for sharing.

Valentine Card Making Table with Stations

Pre-make a couple examples and put those in the middle of the table to give the children some ideas on what they can do with the materials. Keep your samples simple enough so that the children will get inspired, but not feel like they have to make a direct copy.

Valentine Card Making Table with hearts

Have Fun!

Some children could sit at a table like this for hours, while other children may graze this table for minutes. Either way, keep in mind that children learn through play and will appreciate the open-ended quality of this experience.

Thanks, Rachelle. What a terrific way to inspire our kids to be creative while making cards they can give to the people they love!
