Quick, Cute and Easy Valentine

Valentine’s Day, also known as “Heart Day” in our house, is only a short 11 days away.  Are you still looking for a quick and easy idea for your special person?  I may have the fastest craft idea for you, yet.   I found these adorable lightbulb thingamabobs (vase? bottle? lightbulb with a flat bottom?) on sale at Michaels craft store.  They were so cute and some how ended up in my cart even before I knew what to do with them.  Does that happen to anyone else in the craft store? 😉   Here are the quickest steps to make your own.  First, I washed and dried well (dry well to avoid soggy candy), then filled with Reese’s Pieces candies.  Printed out little tags, hole punched and tied on with raffia.  Quick and easy, right?

I made the tags two sided, but you could certainly just use one side.  You could even hand write your own tags instead of printing.  Don’t forget to sign your name and add an “xoxo” for the extra special Valentine!  More Heart Day fun coming this week. <3
P.S. I didn’t see the colored light bulbs available online, so you most likely will need to purchase in the store (don’t forget a coupon in case their not on sale).
