Love Words for Valentines Day - The Magic Onions

Love Words for Valentines Day

I’ve become quite addicted to Pinterest (you can follow my boards by clicking here). Follow Me on Pinterest
But by the looks of things, I’m not the only one ;-) Oh my… what beautiful things people do!Pin It

So, having seen these ‘LOVE’ signs all over Pinterest, Kitty and Teddy and I couldn’t resist making our own.

All we needed was a few pipe cleaners (wire will do just as well) and pretty yarn (embroidery thread will work too)

We connected three pipe cleaners together by twisting their ends around each other. Then we twisted the pretty pink yarn around the pipe cleaners. Around and around and around. Kitty finished covering her pipe cleaners in no time at all, but it proved to be a labor of love for Teddy. Great hand-eye co-ordination practice for my little boy and not to mention a test of concentration as he stuck at his task.

When their pipe cleaners were all pretty in pink, we shaped them into a heart for Teddy’s and the word ‘LOVE’ for Kitty’s

Kitty’s LOVE word is sitting in pride of place on her dressing table and look so soft and gentle in it’s fuzzy pinkness.

Teddy has kept his heart to give to his Valentine (I’ve very interested to see who that might be).

Happy Valentine’s Day crafting,
Blessings and magic,
