Target $1 Aisle Valentine Day Crafts

I'm finally back with a new post...  I don't know about you, but the Christmas holidays wiped me out this year!  With all of the Valentine's Day blog posts and the fun items stocked on the store shelves, I'm rejuvenated and back with some Valentine's Day ideas. 

First, I have to share that our Valentine's Day breakfast from last year was posted on a new and fabulous site, The Party Press.  What an honor!!!  Check it out here.

For those of you who have daughters, if there anything like my Grace, you are probably pulling your hair out trying to think of new craft projects to keep them busy during these winter months.  On any Saturday morning, Grace is asking to do a craft or art project by 7:00 a.m.  There are only so many paper plate ideas I can come up with!

I came across some cardboard heart boxes in the Target $1 aisle the other day.  There are lots of cute Valentine's day craft/art supplies out there right now.  I grabbed a few as well as a few heart doilies.  I'm on a shabby chic/doily/rustic kick right now.  Stay tuned for doily overload for our Valentine's Day breakfast this year and Grace's First Communion/Birthday party.

So, when Grace asked to do a craft project at 8:00 a.m. this morning, I let her loose on the heart boxes and doilies.  Add a little modge podge and some ribbon and here is what she came up with.  The fun part - I plan on incorporating them in our Valentine's Day breakfast table.  I love getting the kids involved in holiday/birthday party planning!

And for the next Target $1 aisle project...  I came across these heart chalkboards (okay, they are actually $2.50, but close enough...)  Last year I searched high and low for heart chalkboards for a similar idea for the kids.  Of course if I would have waited a year, Target would have made my project much easier (and cheaper!)  Here is what I started out with:

After a little vinyl applied to the chalkboard that I cut with my Silhouette and some polka dot ribbon, here is what I came up with.  I plan on giving them to the kids' teachers for a little Valentine's Day teacher gift.

Happy crafting and Happy Valentine's Day :)
