Mustache-Valentine-Free-Printable

Every Valentine’s I take my girl’s to the store and let them choose the fun non-candy item they want to give to friends. My oldest this year found these cute fake mustaches at Target this year and so of course I had to make a fun printable to go along with them.  Say “hello,” to a new free Valentine’s printable, “I Mustache You To Be My Valentine!”

I Mustache You To Be My Valentine

So just head to Target and snag these cute mustaches.  They were $1.50 for 8 in the Valentine’s supplies area.

I-Mustache-you-Valentine

Just download the Free Printable, I Mustache You To Be My Valentine, below on some card stock.

Download

Cut the Valentine’s and now you are ready for the fun part.

Mustache-Valentine

Grab some adhesive.  I used some scrapbooking adhesive for these just show it didn’t show and they could peel off easily. Stick the mustaches onto the paper. Then have those cute little hands sign them.

Valentine-Mustache

And there you have it.  A sassy fun Valentine that comes together super quick!  M girls love it and I know your kids will too.

DIY handwritten pillowcase

Hey! It’s Kari from Life PreKARIous. Let’s talk Valentine’s Day… My birthday is in December, my husband’s is in January, and our anniversary is in March, so with all the holidays so close together we have decided not to spend a ton of money on each other for Valentine’s Day. I love it. The gifts we get and give tend to be more sentimental (read: cheesy) and heart felt. Give me ALL the mushy stuff! My gifts to him are usually hand made, and this year is no differnt. I made him a fun DIY handwritten pillowcase.

It is so easy to make and customize! All you need is some fabric markers, a pillowcase, a piece of cardboard, and a ruler. It’s the perfect gift for any occasion, not just Valentine’s Day

DIY handwritten pillowcase

When it comes to what to write on your pillowcase, the options are endless! I thought it would be fun to make it something that was special to my husband and I. I’m telling ya, mushy is best!

We were married in Las Vegas by the king himself, Elvis. Swoon. So, I decided to use lyrics to a fun, Elvis love song.

DIY handwritten pillowcase

You’ll want to put a piece of cardboard in between the pillowcase. It makes it easier to write on and also prevents the ink from bleeding through to the other side. I used a ruler to make sure I was writing in a straight line.

I repeated the lyrics 3 times in order to cover the whole thing. And how adorable is this handmade pop up Valentine card I found [HERE]? It’s perfect!

DIY handwritten pillowcase

Now, let the love fest begin! 😉

Follow these easy steps to making your own free artwork! Includes link to free printables!

Hello to all the lovely Crafting Chicks! My name is Vanessa Brady and I’m usually found making crafty tutorials over on my blog, Tried & True, but today I’m super excited to be sharing this project with you. I’m a huge fan of all the gorgeous free printables that so many generous bloggers share but sometimes I don’t know quite what to do with them. Why not turn them into free artwork for your walls?! The process is super easy and even someone with zero artistic talent can make a piece of art they can be proud of!

How To Make Your Own Artwork

Materials:
This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience.

Step One. Print off the free printable of your choice in the correct size to fit your painting canvas. Unless you’re really comfortable with painting, I would suggest you start with a fairly easy print with large type. Most of my T&T Original Coloring Prints work perfectly for this!

How To Make Free Artwork - Print
Step Two. Cut a piece of the graphite paper to fit the canvas and tape in place, ink side down. Secure free printable over graphite paper with more tape and begin to trace the image. Go slowly and carefully because all the lines you create (including any mess ups!) will be transferred to the canvas. Some of it you can just paint over but some you won’t!

How To Make Free Artwork - Trace
Step Three. Once you have completed tracing the entire image, remove both papers to reveal the artwork. Now it’s time to start painting in! Take your time but don’t worry too much about shaky hands or uneven lines. We want it to look handmade, not perfect!

How To Make Free Artwork - Add Paint
Step Four. Continue painting until entire piece is covered. You can either leave it like this or…

How To Make Free Artwork - Painted
Step Five. Outline the edges with a black paint pen to finish the piece off. I think most of my T&T Original Coloring Prints look better with the black outline but try it both ways, maybe you’ll like it better with just solid color!

How To Make Free Artwork - Outline
Hope you found this tutorial easy and helpful in making your own free artwork! With as many free printables that are on the internet, your options are almost limitless. Thanks for having me and see you next month!

Valentine Redbox Wrappers

The Christmas Redbox printables were a huge hit, so by popular demand we are back with a Valentine version! There are 4 different Valentine Redbox wrappers to go along with our favorite movie treats.

You can purchase Redbox codes straight from their website in quantities of 5, 10, 20 or 50. Have the codes emailed to yourself and then write the codes on the wrappers. If you want more detailed instructions of how to buy the codes, I’m going to refer you back to the Christmas post.

The price of Redbox rentals has gone up to $1.50, so it will cost $7.50 for 5 rental codes. And a box of theater candy is around $1, so you’re looking at $2.50 for each.

How well do you know your friends? If you’ve gone to a movie with them, you’ll probably be able to guess what their favorite movie watching treat is!

valentine mantle inspiration

Sharing lovely inspiration today for Valentine’s Day Mantle Decor Ideas.  I love Valentine’s day…and my kids love it when we decorate.

I found this mirror at Hobby Lobby (use that coupon)…and spray painted it white!  (It was black)

I made this heart felt wreath a few years ago!  I love the tutorial on the Idea Room.  Amy is a craft genius!  It was therapeutic to make…and I love all crafts with felt, easy to cut!

sm mantle 6

I found this sparkly tassel garland on Oriental Trading…and I made an XOXO banner to go on top with my Cricut Explore.  I found sparkle paper from the Target One Spot to use for the banner letters. I don’t discriminate against cute! Where do you look for Valentine mantle inspiration?

sm mantle 4 sm mantle 5

Next…I added a gold foil heart into a red picture frame…And, some glitter & sequined hearts in a jar!

I made little red felt poms to add to the top of my silver candlesticks.  Love the pops of read hearts!  Happy Month of Love!

Sharing some yummy Valentine Cupcakes today!

I love cupcake toppers…such an easy way to add some spice to holidays and parties.  These mini chalkboard tootpicks are from Target’s One Spot…for a dollar!  So cute!

We wrote on each mini chalkboard with a chalk marker…and added little Love quotes.

Just add pink and red sprinkles!

If you aren’t able to get to Target – or they are out – these would be so easy to make. Just cut a square out of black paper and hot glue onto a toothpick and decorate with a chalk marker!
