1. Simple Valentine's garlandThis cheerful heart-shaped garland was made in the same way as the one with Easter eggs. We cut out the cardboard hearts, and glued colorful pieces of collage paper on them:
When everything was dry, it looked like this:
In the end we hung the hearts on a decorative ribbon and had a colorful decoration for The Hearty day, as my girls call the Valentine's day:
2. Pen decorations
In a post about pipe cleaners' crafts, you have already seen how easily they are shaped into a heart, so we put them on different pens as a decoration:
3. Heart-shaped wax crayonsI won't pretend this is my idea, since it's been spreading along Pinterest way back before I joined it.
We have collected the remains of wax crayons and sorted them in a silicone mold which we then heated in a microwave oven, at the strongest temperature for about 8 minutes.
It was quite hot when it was over, so we left it to cool before removing from the mold:
This is how they looked like on the bottom side:
The Older quickly noticed that the hearts lined up in this way really remind her of trefoil, which can be a great St. Patrick's Day craft:
4. Hearts with bottle caps and buttons
These hearts were made in the same way as our bottle caps Christmas tree. We sorted them in a heart shape and then used a glue gun:
5. Heart shaped cookies
We also made some heart-shaped biscuits, but they quickly disappeared and we only have this picture from an early phase of their preparation:

I wish all of you to have a lot of hearty crafts and warms hugs in each of the next 365 days, not only on February the 14th ;)
