Pinterest Challenge February: Valentine’s Votives


Monkey and I made these cute Valentine’s Votives yesterday to give to his two teachers and (at his request) his two bus drivers as well… Do Valentine’s gifts make up for forgetting to do something at Christmas? (Please Santa?)
I got the Pinterest idea from Happy Hooligans. I precut the tissue paper squares and added some hearts in as well. I gathered up the paint brushes, ModgePodge and baby food jars. I substituted baby food jars because for someone who made her own baby food I seem to have a lot of them lying around. I premade 1 jar for Monkey to use as an example and he did such a great job of following the instructions I couldn’t believe it! He was so precise and didn’t get any glue or tissue on the grip where the lid goes (OMG he’s 5 years old now!)

P.S. LoveBug was invited to join us but opted to play his LeapPad instead…looks like we’re gonna have a gamer on our hands!

***It doesn’t even have to be about Pinterest per se. I mean, we were all already out there on the Internet researching stuff and looking up fun ideas before Pinterest existed. Then Pinterest came along and provided an awesome and easy way to organize all the time we waste surfing the Web into one tidy little package. So now, we go and ‘Pin’ all these amazing ideas on Pinterest, but how many do we actually follow through on? My challenge is to follow through with and document at least 1 each month (baby steps, right?)***
