“Rock Solid” Valentine Craft

February 11, 2013

Only a few days until Valentine’s Day! Whether it’s Chinese New Year or Valentine’s Day, I always look at holidays as an opportunity to learn, craft or cook with Sophie.This weekend, Sophie and I worked on a very simple Valentine’s Day craft that involved elements of nature and a few craft supplies we had on-hand: rocks from our garden, glue, paint brushes, and glitter — heart rocks!

Sophie’s job was to gather the rocks while I gathered the craft supplies. All you do is paint a heart with glue and sprinkle it with glitter. Voila — you have beautiful glitter rock hearts that make cute decorations or gifts (paper weights).

    Your cookie pies look wonderful! Think I’ll do the rock glitter with my girls; they’d love this type of thing!

    Oh my! These look fantastic 🙂 What a great way to spruce up the rocks we have hanging out in our garden. And the handmade cookie pies sound like the perfect gift for my husband.

    I’ve liked both pages for an entry.

    I LOVE the glitter rock idea! I think even my teen girls would like this idea… oh wait, one is actually 20 & left the teens behind. No matter, you get the idea!

    And those pages, I liked ’em both 🙂
    Thanks again for sharing!

    Popcorn (love kettle flavor) and those cookie pies look delicious! Can’t go wrong with that combination! Thanks for the opportunity!
