Craft Idea ~ Paper Curls Valentine Wreath

Paper Curls Valentine Wreath

 

 

A wreath covered with paper curls bursts with Valentine’s Day.  Lovely over a mantel or on a door, this valentine wreath is easy to construct which I found at the Better Homes website.

What You Will Need and Need to do:

Tightly wrap 1×6-inch strips of patterned paper around a pencil to curl. Glue the end of each curl into a loop. Hot-glue the paper to an 8-inch foam wreath form. Repeat until the form is covered. Lightly brush liquid adhesive over the paper curls, and sprinkle with glitter. Print a Valentine’s Day sentiment on patterned paper, back it with a felt circle, and add a white stick for a paper lollipop embellishment.

Valentine Treat Idea ~ Chocolate Cups

Hmmm beautiful idea!  I’m just disappointed that I haven’t come across this before.

submitted by: Bright Ideas

ingredients and directions:

  • 1 3/4 cups DOVE® Brand Dark Chocolate
  • 2 cups M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies
  • 15 full size aluminum cupcake liners with paper liner removed
  • Yield: Makes 15 cups.
  • Prep Time: 40 min.

1. Place the dark chocolate in a bowl and set over simmering water for 2 minutes, or until half the chocolate melts. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir the chocolate until it melts completely. Liberally brush the insides of the aluminum cupcake liners with chocolate. Put the cups on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

2. Replace the bowl of chocolate over the pot of simmering water for about 1 minute. Again, liberally brush the cups with the chocolate and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

3. Gently pull the aluminum liners away from the chocolate cup and place the chocolate cups in the refrigerator until ready to use.

4. When ready to use, fill the chocolate cups with M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies.

Thank you so much Bright Ideas for this fabulous idea!
