DIY xo Wreath [Valentine's Day Decor]

Hey guys! Are you getting ready for Valentine’s Day at all? If so, today is the day for YOU. My blog friends and I have been working on some pretty awesome Valentine’s Day projects to share! They are so “sweet” your heart is going to burst! (a little V-Day lingo for you.)

Here’s my DIY XO Wreath with pom poms

valentine's day wreathLast year I went very traditional with my sweet red and white Valentine’s Day Wreath. This year, I wanted something different. No red or pinks… just GOLD. ahhh…. gold, well and white. It’s probably pretty evident how much I’m loving the gold and white combo lately. Last week I shared how I personalized my Gold Heart “Couples Art”. Today, I’ve got more gold and white. I’ve been wanting to do a project with pom poms for a few months now. I had something in mind during the holidays but got caught up in other things and never got around to it. So for Valentine’s Day it was a no brainer. Time to bust out the pom poms :)

This is a quick project that you can do in an hour or less.

For this DIY XO Wreath you’ll need: cardboard (or any sturdy material), stencil, scissors or exacto knife, paint, hot glue gun, pom poms.

valentine wreath
First, I created a quick stencil with my Silhouette Cameo. If you feel comfortable you can also free hand your letters. You can also just print a large “x” and “o” from a Word document and use that as a stencil. Trace your stencil onto the cardboard, then cut out your letters.

Next, if your material is not already white, paint your letters white.xo wreath tutorialThe next step is to begin hot gluing the pom poms to the cardboard letters. My strategy was to get them as close together as possible and to cover up all the visible cardboard. Continue to hot glue pom poms until the entire letter is covered.xo valentines day hanging

Then I grabbed some gold ribbon and cut a piece about 24 inches long. I adhered the letters to the ribbon with hot glue. I also hot glued a bow to the top. That’s all! xo valentine's day wreath

This would look so cute hanging on a door inside or outside your home. It’s the perfect wreath for my oversized chalkboard.

Personalized Art Gold Heart “Couples Art”

Gold Heart Personalized Art for Valentine’s Day… or not.

personalized gold heart artI kind of love art with special meaning. Personalized art, pictures colored by my daughter, and things we’ve created are my favorite things to display around our home. Those pieces can’t be duplicated, or purchased in a store, making them way more significant.

I had an idea to do a couple’s art canvas for Valentine’s day but I wanted it to be able to transition it to my bedroom afterwards. And because gold is my new obsession, I had to go with gold. It’s perfect for Valentine’s day but it also looks amazing in my bedroom as well!
you can make this gold heart artDo you know what I’m talking about when I say couple’s art? I don’t know if I’m making that term up or not but it’s like the M+C in a heart kinda thing. Ya know? I just love those kind of things -they are super cutesy but still sophisticated, I think. Anyway, I’ve seen prints like this all over Esty for $20+. I managed to make a canvas for $0 because I had all of the supplies at home. Perks of being a craft supply hoarder I suppose. Even I had to purchase the supplies for this project I still could have done it for less than half of the prices I’ve seen on Etsy; and you know that I like a cheap project!

Here’s the breakdown on the Gold Heart Personalized Art (Couple’s Art):

gold heart canvasPaint a blank canvas with gold metallic paint. I used Martha Stewart brand. It took three coats for full coverage. Also, create a heart stencil. This is really easy if you have a Silhouette. If you don’t – check out PicMonkey.com and their “Design” feature. You can create an image that is 8×10. Use the Overlay feature to make a large heart. Print and cut. If you have Word, I’m sure you can find a heart clip art and make a stencil that way as well.

Place the stencil on the canvas (once it’s completely dry) to paint. I offset mine a little bit because I like that look.heart art tutorial Paint the heart with white craft paint. About two coats for full coverage should be about all you need. Remove the stencil and touch up any areas that may need it.
heart canvas artNow you are ready for the “personalized art” part. I used my Silhouette to create a quick stencil for the initials but you don’t need it. A gold sharpie and a steady hand will be just fine!
gold heart canvas artI colored the stencil in with my gold sharpie (I love love love the metallic sharpies!).

I kind of love it.
gold heart personalized artCheck out how I’m displaying it in my bedroom gallery wall. Do you have any personalized art in your home? Somethings that you’ve created that are extraordinary? I’d love for you to share them with me! You can post a picture on Instagram and tag me at @makinghomebase. You can also share them with me on Facebook!

Reese’s Pretzel Bites [A Valentine's Day Treat]

Hey friends!

I’ve been whipping up some yummy treats to share.

It all started after Christmas when Matt asked me to make some yummy treat that a co-worker had brought in to work. He was going on and on about the salty sweet deliciousness. Well, I like salty sweet deliciousness so he didn’t have to ask me twice.

The originals were made with rolos but I spotted the cutest heart shaped Reese’s chocolates so I decided to change it up a bit.

And that proved to be the best idea E.V.E.R.

Reese’s Pretzel Bites

Reeses Pretzel Bites So the deal with these little babies is really nothing fancy.

Line a cookie sheet with some parchment paper. Layout your mini pretzels. Unwrap all your Reese’s chocolate hearts and place them on top of the pretzels. Toss them in the oven on a low heat, like 300 degrees or so for about 1-3 minutes. Keep a close eye on them because you want them the chocolate to melt just enough that they stick nicely onto the pretzels but not too much that they lose their shape. Take them out just when the chocolate starts to glisten/look shiny and melty. Once they are out top the chocolate with an m&m. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for the Reese’s Pretzel Bites to set.

Reeses Pretzel Bites

We loveeeee these treats cool and right out of the freezer but they are fab at room temperature too! They would be really fun to package a couple in a treat bag for homemade Valentine’s Day gifts too! Enjoy!!

Valentine’s Day Decor: Sweet Valentine’s Day Wreath

Friends! I’m so glad to see you back here on this beautiful Friday! I’ve been sharing lots of Valentine’s Day projects with you all the last few weeks but today’s is probably my favorite one so far! I’m working really hard on getting my Valentine’s Day decor all together so I can show you my sweet little vignette…next week! Here is another piece to that puzzle.

Valentine's Day Decor Valentine's Day Wreath

 

This is probably one of my favorite wreaths I’ve ever made. It’s so sweet and simple and perfect for Valentine’s Day! The best part of all though is it was so inexpensive to make! You all know how I love a nice cheap project. The wreath came from Hobby Lobby around Christmas time. It was only a few bucks. Everything else, I had on hand or picked up at my favorite dollar store ever, The Dollar Tree!
Valentine's Day Decor Simple Valentine's Day Wreath

 

I wanted to go simple with this sweet Valentine’s Day wreath, and I’m so glad I did. I feel like the red and white really pop against the natural and rustic look of the twig wreath.

Valentine's Day Decor: Valentines Day Wreath

 

Now, for the details! I made the paper medallions out of the left over paper bag I had from my Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting. Then I glued red foam glitter hearts from the dollar store to the center. The white paper doilies are also from the dollar store and the red glitter XO I had left over from another project. I also added a little burlap bunting to the middle of my wreath and glued some more of the little red glitter foam wreaths to each of the flags. To finish up my Valentine’s Day wreath, I added a red ribbon for hanging.

Ah, I want to keep it up all the time. Is that allowed? I love that it feels so classic Valentine’s Day and I love the RED. What do you think? Tell me, do you go all out with your Valentine’s Day home decor or just a few touches here and there?

Happy Weekend friends – see ya back here on Monday with more Valentine’s Day goodness. Of course if you need a Valentine’s Day fix be sure to check out my Pinterest board or see some of my other Valentine’s Day projects including:

Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting

Hi friends! Have I told you lately that I’m so glad you are here? I have to say, when I started this blog I never expected to reach so many people. I thought my mom might be the only one to ever read this (Hi Mom!), but you guys blows me a way. Every project I put out there the response is overwhelming. You know how to make a girl feel special! Anyway, you should know, I am glad you are here.

Now, down to business. I made another super easy and fun Valentine’s Day craft. I may or may not be obsessed at this point. Oops. This one is just fab (and it looks amazing against my new gray entry table)! It’s Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting.
Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting

Every now and then at the grocery store I ask for paper instead of plastic. Paper bags are great to have on hand. I use them to wrap packages for mailing, wrapping presents, and now I use it to make bunting. This bunting came together so quickly. If you have 30 minutes to spare, then you have time to whip up some of your own.

Ready for a tutorial? Okay! The first thing I did was created a little template for the paper part of the bunting. I just cut a piece of card stock down to the size I wanted and traced it on my brown paper.
Making Home Base Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting

To make the little hearts. I taped lines to washi tape to a piece of card stock paper. This is where you can get really creative. Since there are a billion different designs of washi tape, I can only imagine the possibilities! I had these all on hand. I taped pieces of washi tape to cover the enter sheet of card stock.

makinghomebase.com Paper Bag and Washi Tape Heart Bunting

After the sheet was covered, I flipped it over and traced the hearts. I just tried to fit as many as possible on the sheet.

Making Home Base Paper Bag and Washi Tape Bunting Tutorial

After both my hearts and paper were traced and ready to cut, I cut out ten of each. Lastly, I glued the hearts onto the brown paper sheets then hot glued the brown paper sheets to some twine. It was seriously that easy!

Making Home Base Paper Bag and Washi Tape Bunting

Easy peasy! I love the way it looks in my entry way. Super festive over here! yay!

Have a great friends!

Snickerdoodle Cookies with a Valentine’s Day Twist

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had planned on posting another Valentine’s Day craft today but after all the love you guys gave me over my Valentine’s Day Candy Bark I thought you wouldn’t mind another tasty dessert recipe. This time it’s my Snickerdoodle Cookies with a Valentine’s Day Twist. My husband absolute favorite cookies are snickerdoodles. He loves them. He also loves when I make them to for him to bring to work. I think he likes to show off. If there is ever a night when I ask him what dessert he want he will always say these cookies. I like them too, but personally, I’m a chocolate chip kinda girl.

Since they are his absolute favorite, I made a few batches last week to add to his Valentine’s Day care package. Since I was going with a Valentine’s Day theme I wanted to spruce up these yummy treats with a festive look. I did that by adding in some pink sprinkles to the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bam. Valentine’s Day cookies! So easy, and so festive. I think these would be really great for homemade Valentine’s too. Okay, on to the recipe…

Making Home Base Snicker doodles V Day

Ingredients:

For cookie batter:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

For cinnamon sugar coating:

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp pink sprinkles

 Directions:

In a mixing bowl beat butter until smooth (about 3o seconds). Add the 1 cup of sugar, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of the bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour in 1/2 cup increments. Cover and let chill for about one hour or until the dough is easy to handle.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of sprinkles. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in sugar/sprinkle mixture until completed coated. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until edges are golden. (Watch them carefully they bake up fast!) Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Valentine’s Day Sweater Baby Leg Warmers

Happy Friday friends! I hope you guys are having a great week. Mine has been wonderful! My little miss turned EIGHT months old today. Seriously, where does the time go? It seems like yesterday she was trying to get the hang of rolling over and now she pulling herself up on everything. It is so fun to see her discovering new stuff each day. She is just such a joy.

I know we are starting to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit around here. I’ve already shared a couple projects including my Floating Heart Wall Art, and some delicious Valentine’s Candy Bark. How about you? Have you started any fun projects for the day of love? Valentine’s Day is probably one of my favorite holidays (if you can call it that), not because of the chocolates and flowers but because it’s so fun to craft for! I’m a sucker for some pink and red hearts and anything glittery. And since it’s my little girl’s first one, I’m going all out around here! I shared this project last week at Mom 4 Real, but I wanted to share it with you guys too! I made these super cute Sweater Upcycle Valentine’s Day Baby Leg Warmers!

Making Home Base Sweater Upcycle Valentines Day Leg Warmers

If you love Valentine’s Day as much as I do then you’ll love these sweet little baby leg warmers (look at those chunky little legs! I die) I’m going to share with you. And to make them even sweeter; they cost little to nothing to make! Shall we get started?

Supplies:

Old Sweater

Scissors

Sewing Machine

Felt (1 sheet)

Needle and Thread (embroidery thread works best)

Making Home Base Valentines Day Leg Warmers

As I mentioned, this is going to cost you little to nothing to make! If you don’t have an old sweater in your own closet you can pick one up for cheap at any local thrift store. I had this one sitting in my closet.

makinghomebase sweater leggings tutorial

To start out, cut off the sleeves. If possible, try the leggings on your baby model to get an idea of the length. I cut my sleeve down to about 12 inches for my 7 month old.

sweater leg warmer with heart patch making homebase

Now that you have the length you want, cut off half of the sleeve cuff. For me, that was 2 1/2 inches.

sweater leggings heart patch tutorial

Take the cuff you just cut and pin it right sides together to the opposite end of the sleeve. Sew together with 1/4 inch seam. Now you have one completed leg warmer. Follow those steps to finish your second leg warmer.

makinghomebase sweater leggings with heart patch

Here’s the fun part! Grab your felt and cut out two little hearts. I used red felt but I think pink or purple would be just as fun. Tip: My hearts are about 2 1/2 in x 3 in in size. I used the top of a heart shaped paper mache box I had as my stencil but good old pen and paper would work just fine.

heart patch sweater leg warmers tutorial

Pin your heart in place and grab your needle and thread to sew on your heart patch. I hand stitched the heart on because I love the homemade look. It didn’t take any time at all to sew the hearts on. Probably about 10 minutes for each heart. If you aren’t crazy about hand stitching, you can use your sewing machine.

Heart patch sweater leg warmers

Now, all that’s left to do is try them on your model! Here they are on my 7 month old’s adorable chubby little legs! Cute right? She’s all ready for Valentine’s Day! I’m sending pictures of her in these little leg warmers to her Daddy. I know he is just going to melt seeing his little Valentine in these cuties!

Thanks for visiting with me today, friends. Have a great weekend, xo.

Valentine’s Day Candy Bark

Hi friends!

Are you guys ready for this? My very first recipe post. I’m excited :) Are you? I have an insane sweet tooth. (I’m slightly addicted to Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Have you tried the limited batch, Cannoli yet? It’s amazing.) It’s okay though because my husband does too. Normally when I bake something it’s gone before I eat too much of it anyway, ha. I appreciate that about him. The last few days I have been baking up a storm fixing all of my husband’s favorite treats. Since he’s is deployed my poor kitchen has been really deprived. Not much cooking or baking going on. It’s true, it’s not much fun cooking for one :) But lately I’ve been in the kitchen baking up a storm. I’m getting together a fun Valentine’s Day care package for him. It’s full of his favorite snacks, candies, homemade goodies, and no care package is complete without pictures of our sweet P. One of the treats I just know he will love. It combines my love for candy bark and his love for m&m’s. During the holidays I adore peppermint bark! This past Christmas, I didn’t make any (shame on me) so I thought why not skip the peppermint and make some cutesy Valentine’s Day Candy Bark instead!

Valentines Day Candy Bark

 

This is seriously the easiest recipe you’ll ever make. You can add any candy you’d like. Even pretzels or oreos would work well in this delicious bark. I kept it simple with just m&m’s and sprinkles. Okay, recipe time.

Valentine’s Day Candy Bark:

Ingredients:

White chocolate chips (24 oz)

m&m’s or your favorite candy in Valentine colors (1 bag)

Sprinkles

Directions:

Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Using a double boiler, melt your chocolate over medium heat, stirring constantly until it’s smooth.

Carefully pour chocolate onto the lined cookie sheet and spread to even out.

Sprinkle m&ms and sprinkles over top. 

Lightly press toppings into the chocolate.

Refrigerate for about one hour or until hard and break apart.

*Since I’ll be popping these in the mail. I wrapped it in plastic wrap and put in a tin.*

Valentine’s Day Floating Heart Wall Art

Can I just tell you? I am so excited for Valentine’s Day! My house is a bit bare ever since taking down my Christmas decorations. It needs some sparkle! So I’m going all out for Valentine’s Day. Honestly, I haven’t done too much decorating for Valentine’s previously, just a couple hearts here and there (and of course heart shaped pancakes for the hubby) but now that I have Miss P, I’m going to make it a perfect holiday of love for her!heart wall art making home base

So here goes my first craft of Valentine’s Day folks! I’m so excited to share my Floating Heart Wall Art. This fun piece is made using a recycled picture frame, some hearts cut out of card stock, twine, and good ole hot glue. Ready to see how it’s made?makinghomebase heart frame

When I was pregnant with my daughter my husband and I picked up tons of frames at thrifts stores to refinish and potentially use in her nursery gallery wall, you can see that here. We have lots of frames left over. This one was an ugly gold frame, and we just spray painted it white. It’s perfect for this project.

heart wall hanging vday makinghomebase

The first thing I did was lay out my hearts in the frame to position them the way I wanted. I didn’t really get too technical with it, just laid them out. Then I laid the string over top and started gluing. I glued two heart cut outs together that way if they get turned around you don’t see the string or glob of glue on the back side. Lastly, I glued the strings in place onto the frames. Simple as that!

I love the little bit of aqua in there. So fun for Valentine’s Day! So tell me…have you started working on Valentine’s Day projects yet?
