Materials:

DIY emoji heart valentine with free printable | Popcorn and ChocolateInstructions:

  1. Trace or free hand a heart eye emoji onto your shrinky dinks using a yellow sharpie. For size reference mine was about 3.5 in diameter. Once you have traced the emoji, color it in using red, yellow, and grey sharpie.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Cut out the emoji.
  3. To shrink the shrinky dinks you can either follow the instructions on the package (in the oven at 325°F for 2-3 minutes; make sure to place them on parchment paper) or you can use a heat embossing tool for about 1-2 minutes. Again, make sure to put them on parchment paper so they don’t stick to your surface. The shrinky dinks will shrivel up and then begin to flatten out – once they are flat again they are done.
  4. Taking some plain white paper, trace the size of the emoji on it and cut it out. Glue this to the back of the emoji using Mod Podge. This is so you won’t see the pin back through the pin.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  5. Using a hot glue gun, glue on the pin & back to the white paper.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. Print out our free printable and stick the heart eye emoji in the middle of it.

DIY XO Wine Stoppers | Popcorn and ChocolateValentine’s/Galentine’s Day is coming right up! If you are still in need of a simple gift or a cute decoration keep reading to find out how to make these XO glittery wine stoppers!Glittery XO Wine Stoppers | Popcorn and ChocolateI feel like this year is just flying by… I say that every year, but how is it almost Valentine’s day already? I was happily celebrating my birthday last weekend in Portland, ME with Rose and I blinked and this week is already over! To be completely honest I’m not someone that really looks forward to the big v-day. Even when I was dating someone I never was super thrilled about the holiday. Glittery XO Wine Stoppers | Popcorn and ChocolateDon’t get me wrong, I love love love all the pink and hearts that are everywhere, just the actual day is a little cringe-worthy. I much rather celebrate by throwing a big Galentine’s day party with friends and eat sweets and drink wine and make some crafts, but tbh, I would always rather being doing that. DIY XO Glittery Wine Stoppers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY XO Glittery Wine Stoppers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateThese glittery XO wine stoppers would be the perfect decoration to add to your bar cart at your Galentine’s day party. Orrrr you could make the X’s and O’s ahead of time and let everyone decorate their own! Sometimes I think I’m a party planner. But doesn’t that sound like a fun party?? Drink some wine, craft, eat some popcorn and chocolate. Seems perfect to me. DIY XO Glittery Wine Stoppers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

Instructions for XO wine stoppers:

  1. Make your plaster by following the instructions on the bottle and then pour it into your silicone tray in the X and the O. Let dry for the allotted time it says on your Plaster of Paris (about an hour).Plaster XO wine stoppers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Once the X and O have dried, pull out of the tray and if you want to paint yours this would be the time to do so. As you can see I painted one set pink and left the other plain. Let dry.Painted plaster xo wine stopper | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Take your paint brush and dip it into the mod podge then paint on the glue in the areas that you want glitter to be. I sort of did a dip-dyed look with mine. Painted plaster xo wine stopper | Popcorn and Chocolate

DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate

DIY Flamingo Piñata

DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateWe are taking a slight break from the typical Valnetine’s DIYs and Super Bowl goodies that should be going up right about now to share with you a fun DIY I made for my birthday that was on Sunday. It’s still pink though so it might be able to pass for Valentine’s Day.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateActually, this DIY flamingo piñata might do pretty well at a Galentine’s party if I do say so myself. It’s pink, it’s full of candy, it’s a flamingo – perfect for any party really.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateYou might be wondering why I chose a flamingo piñata of all things. Well, to be perfectly honest, I’ve seemed to have collected or made a lot of flamingo themed things this past year. I guess when you’ve got a whole flock of flamignos around you you sort of become associated as the flamingo lady, a title I will gladly hold.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateYou also might be wondering why flamingos of all creatures. I’m not too sure tbh. Maybe it’s because they are pink or that they stand on one leg or that they have funny necks, who really knows – just call me crazy flamingo lady and leave it at that.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateI knew I wanted to make a piñata for my birthday since I made one for Rose’s and made a cactus one, it was just a matter of what to make a piñata of. Looking back on the year flamingos seemed to come up more than once so it was a pretty easy decision from there. Now we’ve got a nice little flamingo added to our ever growing piñata collection.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateMaterials:

  • Cardboard boxes – cereal boxes worked really well
  • Cardboard paper towel rolls and/or toilet paper rolls
  • Exacto knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Streamers in pink, orange, and white
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • A helping hand

How to make the flamingo piñata:

  1. I apologize in advance for the pictures of this DIY – I needed both my hands to do most of the steps so it was a bit tricky photographing it as well, but I will do my best to describe the process. Start with drawing a flamingo body shape onto cardboard and cut out using an exacto knife. Trace this body onto another piece of cardboard and cut that out as well. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Cut out a lot a lot of strips of cardboard about 2 inches across – these will be what connects the two layers of the flamingo body (and the rest of the flamingo later). I found the sides of cereal boxes were the perfect size. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Cut out a head shape and then trace it onto another piece of cardboard and cut that out as well. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. Cut out two feet shapesDIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  5. Now it’s time to glue the two layers together. This is when a helping hand is needed. Take the two layers of the flamingo body and put hot glue on the sides of each of them then quickly place down one of the 2 inch across strips as far as it will go along the body. Do this across the top of the body and most of the bottom – but make sure to leave room for the legs. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. To make the legs I used 1 paper towel roll and 3 toilet paper rolls. Place the straight paper towel roll in between the two layers of the body and glue it down with hot glue. To make the bent leg place 1 toilet paper roll in between the two layers of the body and glue it there. Slightly bend another toilet roll and glue it to the first toilet paper roll. Add a third toilet paper roll to the bottom. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  7. For the neck of the bird glue 1 paper towel roll to the body.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  8. For the head, glue each of the two layers to the top of the paper towel roll. Then take another cereal box strip and glue it between the two head layers. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  9. Glue the feet to the bottom of the two legs.
  10. Now you should have a full flamingo body and can start adding the streamers. To do this start at the bottom of the flamingo (so the legs) and wrap the streamer around the area you are going to put it then cut it to that size. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  11. Add small cuts to one side of the streamer to create the fringe.DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate
  12. Add glue to the top part of the streamer where you didn’t add the fringe. Then carefully glue it onto the birdDIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  13. Continue doing this all the way to the top.
  14. To do the back and top of the head (the cereal boxes) just cut small strips and layer them like you did for the body. Before you do the top of the head make sure to hot glue on a string so it can hang. DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and Chocolate

 

Now your flamingo is ready to mingle! DIY Flamingo Piñata | Popcorn and ChocolateOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Candy Heart Plant Pots for Valentine’s Day

DIY Candy Heart Succulent Pots | Popcorn and ChocolateThese candy heart plant pots are the perfect gift to give away to your friends or coworkers on Valentine’s day. They are very quick and cheap to make so you could easily make a bunch to give away – or just make some for yourself to decorate your home with!  Keep reading below to learn how to make these candy heart planters. DIY Candy Heart Succulent Pots | Popcorn and Chocolate

Candy Heart Plant Pot for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateBefore I teach you how to make these candy heart planters I have a confession to make. I’m kind of freaked out by candy hearts. When I was in 4th grade around Valentine’s Day I was eating a bunch of these candy hearts, as kids do, and shortly after I was sent home sick with the flu. In my kid head I thought the candy hearts were what made me sick. Ever since then I’ve had a huge food aversion to candy hearts. I haven’t eaten them since 4th grade (and probably never will). I was traumatized. Candy Heart Plant Pot for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateThough I refuse to eat candy hearts that doesn’t mean I won’t craft with them! I love the bright colors and the cute messages they have… just not so much the taste. They are certainly abundant in January and February so it’s kind of hard to avoid them, so my as well embrace them as I did here. Candy Heart Succulent Pot | Popcorn and Chocolate

Valentine's Day Candy Heart Pot | Popcorn and ChocolateIf you do love candy hearts then this DIY is perfect for you! Quick and easy to make so you can give them away as Valentine’s Day gifts this year. Here’s what you will need:

Valentine's Day Candy Heart Pot | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

  • Terra Cotta pot (or pots)
  • White paint
  • Paint brush
  • Mod Podge
  • Candy hearts picture  – I just googled this and chose one I liked

Instructions:

  1. Paint your terra cotta pot white. Mine took 2 coats – make sure you let it fully dry before you put a second coat on.
  2. Cut out individual candy hearts – as many as you want to cover your pot. Candy heart planters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Using mod podge, glue on the cut out candy hearts on various places on your pot. If you like a lot of candy hearts then glue on a lot but if you like a more minimal look, like mine, just do a couple on each side. Candy heart planters | Popcorn and ChocolateOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACandy heart planters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. Let dry and stick a succulent in it!

Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

Hand warmers for Valentine’s Day

Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

Valentine’s day is in February and February, at least where I’m from, is still very cold so I thought it would be a cute idea to give your Valentine some homemade hand warmers to keep their hands and hearts warm.

Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

There’s nothing worse than having cold hands when you have to go outside. It makes me very grumpy so I always have the thickest mittens with me at all times. But sometimes even gloves fail me in the harsh New Hampshire winters. That is where these hand warmers step in. They are cute, they are functional, and they are easy to make.

In fact, they are so easy to make that I went a little overboard and made about 6 pairs. I don’t exactly have a Valentine to give them to so I might have to force them upon my friends and family. Hopefully they appreciate pink. And warm hands.

Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

Speaking of which, these heart hand warmers would make the perfect gift to give away to your loved ones or friends this Valentine’s day. Or, if you are like me, you can just make them for yourself and enjoy having toasty warm hands.

Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

You can easily customize what you put on your hand warmers. Since mine are Valentine’s themed I went with hearts but you could do any shape or even put someone’s initials on them. So many fun ideas! Keep reading below to find out how to make these heart hand warmers.
Heart hand warmers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

  • Felt in various colors – I used white, pink, and red
  • String in color of choice – I used white and red
  • Needle
  • Rice

To make the square hand warmers:

  1. Start by cutting out the shape of your hand warmers. For these it was a rectangle about 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches. You will need 4 pieces this size.
  2. Next cut out two small hearts out of a different color of felt (I used red). Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Using a running stitch sew on one of the small red hearts to one of the pink rectangles. If you want the stitches to show you can use a contrasting color, otherwise use red to hide the stitches. Heart hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. Taking one of the rectangles with a heart and one plain rectangle, overlap them and begin stitching by bringing the needle through one of the layers then use a running stitch, stitch along the side. Stitch up 3 of the 4 sides.
    Heart hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate

    Sorry I have a cut on my hand from getting overly excited at Target…

    Heart hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate

  5. Once you have 3 of the sides stitched, take your rice and fill the hand warmer with it. Heart hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. Finally, stitch up the final side and tie off. Heart hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  7. Repeat stitching with your second set of rectangles.
  8. To use pop in the microwave for 30 seconds.

To make the heart hand warmers:

  1. Start by cutting out a heart shape on your felt. Mine was about 3.5 inches tall and 3.5 inches across in the biggest area. Cut out 3 more hearts the same size by using the first heart as a stencil. Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Taking two of the hearts put one on top of the other and begin stitching them together. I used a blanket stitch to do this, which I will try to explain below, but feel free to use a running stitch here too. For the blanket stitch you will start by putting your thread in one layer and pulling it through. Next take the thread and bring it to the back overlapping where you first put your stitch. Before you pull the stitch all the way through, put the needle through the small loop you have left and then pull it tight. For the next stitch, put your needle about .5 cm away from the first and then follow the same steps – push the needle to the back and then before you pull it tight, put the needle through the loop. The pictures and video below might help explain it a bit better:
    Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate

    Start by putting the string through one of the hearts

  3. Continue with stitching up the majority of the heart until you have about 1.5 inch opening left.Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. Fill the heart with rice. Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  5. Finish by stitching the remaining 1.5 inch and tying it off. Heart shaped hand warmers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. Repeat with your second set of hearts.
  7. To use pop in the microwave for 30 seconds.

DIY Valentine’s Day Marbled Hearts

DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateValentine’s day is in 4 days.. do you have do you have your gifts ready? If you are like us and do everything last minute, we have the perfect quick and easy DIY for you, and likely you already have all the supplies at home.DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateDIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateTo make these Valentine’s day marbled hearts, you will need some nail polish, paper, and a container that you don’t mind getting covered in nail polish (we used an empty yogurt container).DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateFirst cut out heart shapes on your paper. We recommend using card stock because it is sturdy and thick. You can either use a stencil to trace hearts or free-hand cut them out like we did. We also used the grade school heart making trick by folding the paper in half and cutting the heart along the fold so you have symmetrical sides.DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateNext, fill up your container with lukewarm water and probably you should grab some paper towels at this point too because things will get a bit messy from here on out. Drizzle a couple of drops of nail polish into the container and repeat with however many colors you want to use. Finally, dip the paper heart into the container with the nail polish and pull out as straight as you can. Set on a paper towel to dry.DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateDIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateThis project, although easy and uses minimal supplies, does take a little practice to get that pretty swirled marble look. We recommend working quickly once you have dropped the nail polish into the container as it tends to dry and get clumpy fast. We also recommend to have a toothpick or two handy between applications to clear out any residual nail polish. Just swirl the toothpick around the surface of the water and that’ll do the trick. Lastly, we definitely recommend wearing gloves and not making the mistake of dying your hands 4 different shades of pink like we did ;)DIY Valentine's Day Marbled Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateThere you have it – a super simple last minute Valentine’s Day idea. You could hand these out as Valentine’s Day cards or just have fun making them for a little Galentine’s get-together.

Tell us: Do you leave everything to the last minute or do you plan far in advance? What are your Valentine’s Day plans?

Valentine’s Day Free Printable Lyric Hearts

IMG_9484We are all too aware that Valentine’s day is fast approaching. I don’t need the whole world to remind me that I’m still single… I’ve never really loved Valentine’s day, but I’ve never really hated it either. It is a very neutral holiday for me.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateI mean there’s candy and flowers galore, but I still have leftover Halloween candy I’m working on and I’ve already got my permanent Rose so I don’t feel the pull to buy anything (my wallet thanks me). In terms of decorating, I’m not the biggest fan of red but might throw up a heart here or there in our apartment. Maybe I’m just in that awkward stage where it was fun as a kid and will be again once I’m older (and married?)? So in the meantime I’ll celebrate this neutral holiday with a medium amount of enthusiasm and my leftover Halloween candy, thank you very much.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateThat doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy making Valentine crafts. I mean it is a holiday and I do have a craft blog.. it’s only natural to exploit holidays. And to help spice up your holiday a little bit, we’ve created these fun lyric candy hearts that you can print out and give to your friend, bf, gf, mom(?), random person you meet in a bar, really whoever strikes your fancy.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateWe’ve made it so you can either print it out and use it as a card or cut out the hearts and hang them up as decorations. It’s really up to you! We personally decided to use them to decorate our apartment and try to hide the fact that we still have Christmas decorations up… I’m really slow to let go of holidays if you haven’t noticed.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateNow instead of celebrating V-day alone or with whomever you choose to be with, you can also celebrate with Drake, T-Swift, and the Biebs. I mean, that’s one Valentine’s day I could get on board with.

Valentines Day Trays

IMG_4950

Valentine’s day is upon us my friends. I feel like this holiday is either dreaded or loved; I used to be someone who dreaded it but now I am slowly moving towards the latter category. With all sorts of Valentine’s goodies in stores and seeing fun blog posts and pictures of homemade treats on the internet, I’ve gotten excited for Valentines day this year. I guess I appreciate it more from a crafters standpoint nowadays, and have even given into the reds and pinks and heart shaped everything.

IMG_4879 We tend to be suckers for holiday goodies and end up falling into the trap of buying everything just because it is pretty and holiday related (exhibit a, and b, and c – okay I’ll stop now). Therefore, to justify our purchases we have decided to put together two Valentine’s day themed trays. We have done a breakfast in bed themed tray and also an evening dessert tray. These trays are quite versatile and are a cute way to say I love you. Even if you don’t have a date, you can share these goodies with a friend, a neighbor, or just enjoy it all yourself! IMG_9988 When you wake up in the morning on a holiday it is fun to be surprised with a present or homemade breakfast. On this tray we have put all the things that we would like to be surprised with in the morning, such as a cute hand made note, a delicious homemade breakfast, and some nice, warm tea. IMG_9992 IMG_0036 These little notes are simple to make – all you need is some paper, stamps and ink. We got most of these stamps at A.C. Moore last year for sale for super cheap. A homemade made card adds a cute little touch that shows your creative side. Plus, you can customize them to fit the person you will be giving it to. IMG_4905 IMG_0023 We also added a simple breakfast that you can make ahead and have ready to go in the morning with minimal work. We made Chocolate Covered Katie’s Customizable Breakfast Granola Cups. These were very easy to make and you can do so the night before and then just add in Greek yogurt or whatever filling you wish (peanut butter anyone?) We added some fresh fruit to the cups to make it a well rounded breakfast treat. IMG_0033IMG_4946 Lastly, we added two cups of warming tea to the tray. You, of course, could have coffee or even some mimosas if you’re feeling indulgent! We love these new mugs we got at Target. Target does it again!IMG_0087 Our second tray is more of an afternoon/night time treat tray. This one features rosé wine, some popcorn and some chocolate covered fruit delights. Some other ideas to put on it could be a movie to watch, a game to play together, or a candle to light. IMG_4960 IMG_0109 For the chocolate covered fruit, we bought this mold at A.C Moore for $2 and melted some chocolate chips in the microwave. We then cut out whatever fruit we had on hand – cherries, raspberries, and strawberries, blackberries – into little hearts. We piped a layer of chocolate into the molds and placed the heart shaped fruit on top. Then we stuck it in the freezer for about 30 minutes or an hour to harden. This treat is truly delicious, and it adds a nice indulgent counterpart to some salty popcorn. You all know we need some chocolate to go with our popcorn! IMG_0105IMG_0110 No nighttime treat would be complete without a glass of wine or a cocktail to pair with it. We went for some rosé as it is pink and fitting for Valentine’s day, but feel free to add in any cocktail or type of wine you prefer. There have been a lot fun cocktail recipes I’ve seen lately that would make a great edition to this tray. IMG_4992 We scattered the table with some heart confetti and some red arrows that Rose cut out to add to the festiveness of it all. The hearts were made with a little heart punch from A.C. Moore and some colored card stock. IMG_0092 We hope you enjoyed our two Valentine’s day themed trays. It was a lot of fun to put together and to make two different types of trays as well. Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s day!
