WE GIVE A HOOT ABOUT VALENTINES DAY!



With Valentine's Day right around the corner (Holy Moly! Only TEN days to go!) we've finally started to get into the spirit. The other evening we stopped into Joanne Fabrics & purchased one of their premade craft kits. Each kit contained enough pieces to create three different owls. At first, our plan was to give these out with cards for Valentine's day, but realized the cost to ship the foam birds wasn't quite ideal. They've now become a part of our window display in the foyer - which is very sparse looking right now, but we plan on creating some more this weekend to make it look full.




Daycen is getting a lot better at his crafting skills. (I knew he took after me!) Instead of getting bored & frustrated with it right away, he'll work hard to try & complete the project.




He actually created two and a half of the owls til his little fingers started to get sticky & the hearts started sticking to his fingers. At this point, in his words, he was all done!

i ended up not using a craft kit, but using felt we already had. Then i decided to sew thim into plush owls, because they were so adorable!!
We even took it a step further and made paper owl valentines using the same idea. Thank you so much for your post!! My kids LOVE the owls. :)
