    Default Homemade VD with a twist!

    I've always tried to do homemade Valentine's Day celebrations every year. The one year that we didn't was the first year DH and I were together, but were doing the long-distance relationship thing.

    So this year, I've decided that not only will the cake be homemade but so will the decorations.

    1) Get some red, pink, and white construction paper. Fold each piece into four squares and cut out a heart shape. Leave a small section on the sides to allow the hearts to be connected, forming a chain of hearts. Tape each fourth heart to the next set of hearts, hang them from the overhead of each room (like where you would normally put garland at Christmas or Christmas cards).

    2) Make cupcakes with small conversation hearts in the middle of the frosting.

    3) Bake heart-shaped sugar cookies, decorate with pink frosting and give out to the kids in YDS class along with some cards.

    I also wanted to find some heart-shaped candle molds and make my own candles. Perhaps I can get parafin wax and wicks at a craft store? Any ideas?

    Don't have any ideas, however it sounds like it's going to be a fun Valentine's day at your house.

    We have a heart shaped pan that were going to make the big chocolate chip cookies in and decorate them...to give to a couple special friends. I picked the pan up one year after Valentines for really cheap.

    We also have heart shaped ice cube trays and are planning to make homemade chocolates.

    We'll made homemade cards...we have quite a few valentines stamps. My favorite are the conversation heart stamps, but lots of them work.

    I'm making heart shaped pillows for all the kids. The kids are going to make heart sugar cookies and love bugs to give to friends. And I am going to also make a heart shaped cake for the family and a special dinner.

    I saw "Homemade VD" and my mind was elsewhere. :laughing:

    Ahem

    Yes, you can get parrafin wax and wicks at a store. You can use washed out juice concentrate cans or milk cartons as molds...

    Yes, "VD" is not, not, not a good abbreviation to use for "Valentines Day"...

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose mind went straight there...

    I thought the same thing and I was wondering what the "twist" was!
