Any excuse I can get to combine three things that I love–milk bottles, chocolate, and baker’s twine–I take full advantage of it. These Valentine treat jars do just that, and they’re the most darling way to tell someone “you’re sweet”. They’re super easy to make, and the peek-a-boo heart is absolutely adorable!

A Valentine Tree {simple Valentine’s Day decor}

I’m going to have to have the most gigantic garage sale this summer when we move into our new house.  I can’t tell you how many things I’ve bought or made to replace that very same or similar item that’s in storage.  We even have two trampolines!  (The kids have big plans for them both…we’ll see.)  It holds true for holiday decor, too, but with one major difference–I don’t believe in having too much!

I recently came across the most fabulous red and white striped pitcher, and being enormously obsessed with both red and stripes, I felt as if it was fate.  The best part? It was only $10!  It was a good day.  I had packed it away for next Christmas, but then I realized how perfect it would be for Valentine’s Day.  With a little card stock, twine, and a few branches, an adorable Valentine Tree was born!

Easy wood Christmas sign

You might be surprised to hear this, but one of the hardest parts of being in this little apartment and not having any of our things is not the cramped quarters (which I’ve actually come to appreciate in many ways), but rather not being able to build and create and make stuff!!  With no tools here, and no home to decorate, my list is getting longer and longer by the day. It’s what I love to do, so when I get any small opportunity to make something, no matter how simple, I’m a happy happy girl!

I decided I needed a little something to go above the chalkboard window in the family room to add a pop of color and a little bit of Christmas to the whole space, especially after my cute husband took on the big, bad, storage unit and tried to find our ornaments and decor, but couldn’t.  I created a simple but adorable wood Christmas sign that’s perfect above a doorway, window, or shelf, and I absolutely love it!
