Peanut Butter M&M's Valentine Gift

So excited to have Kristy from The Diary of Dave's Wife back contributing this year! She always has something super cute to share with us so we feel truly lucky to have her as part of our team! 


I strongly believe that chocolate & peanut butter is the single best food combination that was ever paired together in the history of EVER. 

And then M& M went and put them together and covered them in that fantastic colorful candy coating so that when placed in front of me, I JUST cannot stop eating!  (Come on, I know I am not the only one!) 

As a matter of fact, they happen to be my husband's favorite too! So this year for Valentines I found a cute jar to fill up with those Peanut Butter & Chocolate pieces of heaven, to send with him to work so he can share with his patients and co-workers.  I'm ALL about sharing the Love and Peanut Butter M&M's.

And I couldn't resist the chance to make it a bit cute too!
So if you are a Peanut Butter M&M lover like my husband and I, than this just might be the Valentine for you. It's super EASY to put together and I have even created a free printable to share with you!

Next get yourself a cute container.  I found my jar at World Market.  The minty lid spoke to me and told me I had to take him home with me.  So, I did!  And took along  a few of his pals too! Then make sure you have enough Peanut Butter M&M's to fill your container.

This one took almost 3 bags, which I found at my local Target.  
Last, simply tie on one of those free tags you printed with some cute ribbon or twine.

Embroidery Hoop Valentine's Day Wreath

We've got a fun new project to share with you today. An embroidery hoop Valentine's Day wreath. It's super quick and a fun little addition to my lovey dovey decorations. 

- 8 small embroidery hoops
- 4 sheets of grey felt
- 4 wooden hearts
- hot glue gun and glue
- 4 popsicle sticks

- Put the felt in your embroidery hoops and then trim around the edges leaving about a half an inch overhang.
- Use the hot glue and glue the extra felt down to the backs of the hoops.
- Now is the only tricky part. Getting your hoops into an even circle. It's definitely harder than it looks. I ended up getting out a large embroidery hoop that I had and used it as a guide. Once I got my hoops looking even I used some hot glue to secure them together. 
- For a little extra stability I glued 4 popsicle sicks to the back of the wreath. 
- Last step is to use a little hot glue and glue your 4 hearts to the centers of every other hoop. We didn't even paint the hearts, just left them natural like the hoops. 

Then hang it somewhere and enjoy! 

How crazy do you go with your Valentine's Day decorating?
