Flower pens make beautiful homemade Valentine gifts for loved ones, teachers, friends or coworkers. While they’re easy and fun to make, they’re even more fun to use!

Homemade Valentine Gifts Flower Pens

You may be thinking, “what a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting quietly in an antique sugar bowl” as you gaze upon the above photo. But is it, really? Nope! It’s not! It’s a beautiful antique sugar bowl filled with a bouquet of flower pens! If you’re looking for a unique homemade Valentine gift, then you’ve come to the right place! Flower pens are such fun! So easily personalized by the pen you use and what type (or types) of flower you choose.

Homemade Valentine Gifts Flower Pens

You’ll only need a couple supplies and less than 5 minutes to make this sweet gift.

  • a pen (or pens)
  • artificial flowers
  • floral tape
  • wire cutters

I found these pretty peonies at the dollar store but you can find an even larger selection of artificial flowers as well as the floral tape, at a local craft store.

Homemade Valentine Gifts Flower Pens

Here’s what you do ::

  • Simply cut a flower with wire cutters leaving about a 4 inch stem
  • hold the stem against the top of the pen, then gently pull the floral tape to release its sticky texture while wrapping it around the stem
  • continue to wrap (while gently pulling the tape) until the entire pen is covered in the floral tape
  • tear off the tape once you get to the tip and press the edge down for a smooth finish

Homemade Valentine Gifts Flower Pens

Viola! You’ve got yourself a flower pen. Isn’t it sweet?

Homemade Valentine Gifts Flower Pens

A bouquet of pens arranged in a fetching vessel makes a gorgeous gift for Valentine’s Day or even a birthday or Mother’s Day. Treat someone special to a beautiful homemade flower pen. It’s nearly impossible to use one without a smile on your face.

Cherry Heart Hand Pies

Cherry heart hand pies are as delicious as they are darling. They’re an easy and impressive, sweet treat for those you love.

Cherry Heart Hand Pies

Why is it that hand pies always seem to steal my heart? I just adore their sweet little individual disposition. Their playful rustic look paired with the idea of an afternoon spent humming in the kitchen whilst making homemade hand pies makes me smile. But guess what? Don’t tell anyone, but these little beauties aren’t made from scratch.

Cherry Heart Hand Pies

They were put together with a readymade pie crust and a canned filling. Special heart felt sentiments don’t always have to take hours to prepare. The minutes I spent assembling the hand pies don’t really matter when I see the glowing faces of my sweethearts as they relish in their confection. And trust me, nobody ever asks me, as they gleefully savor every gooey sweet bite, how many hours I’ve spent slaving in the kitchen.

Cherry Heart Hand Pies

And as for me? Oh I’m happily humming in the kitchen. But rather than cleaning up a big mess, I get to relish in the moments I’ve still got with my beautiful teenage daughters as they sit at my island happily chatting away over their tasty treat.

I guess it’s not really the hand pies that steal my heart. But rather who eats them that does. My heart spilleth over.

Cherry Heart Hand Pies

 

Wishing you and yours the sweetest Valentine’s Day ever!

Cherry heart hand pies are as delicious as they are darling. They’re an easy and impressive, sweet and tart treat for your sweetheart!
Ingredients
  • Preheat oven to 400ª
  • Thaw prepared pie crust according to directions. Flour surface and roll out pie crust.
  • Using a 4 inch heart cookie cutter, cut out 5 heart shapes and place on a lined baking sheet. Open the second round of dough and cut out 5 more heart shapes. Using a small one inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut a heart out of the center of 5 of the hearts and lift it out . (you can bake these extras for an extra nibble for the baker) I also chose to leave a few without the centers cut out.
  • Beat an egg with a splash of water and brush egg wash around edges of the 5 hearts on baking sheet.
  • Put about a tablespoon of the cherry filling into the center of each of the dough hearts.
  • Place the remaining dough hearts with the cut out centers carefully on each hand pie.
  • Seal the hand pies by gently pushing a fork around the edges or push gently with finger tips to seal if you rather have a smooth edge.
  • Brush the top of each hand pie with the egg wash, (cut a few slits into the top of the hearts without heart centers) and then sprinkle with sanding sugar.
  • Bake for 15 minutes in a 400º oven until golden brown on the top and warm and bubbly inside.
  • Enjoy!
Instructions
  1. For the filling ::
  2. can of cherry filling
  3. For the crust :
  4. package prepared pie crust (I used Trader Joe’s)
  5. egg and water for egg wash

DIY Bath Bombs

DIY bath bombs will turn your bath into a glorious soak. Enjoy pampering qualities of epsom salts, olive oil, delicious essential oil fragrances and secret surprises inside.

DIY Bath Bombs

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of a busy life calls for a luxurious bath. Slipping into a hot tub of pink water that’s scented like roses, feels like silk ribbons swirling around you and melts into an explosion of sweet little heart sprinkles can make you feel like a queen. (Or a king depending on who you are.) My daughters happen to be huge fans of a store called Lush, and they especially adore their bath bombs. After a recent pricey trip of loading up on their favorite bath time essentials, my eldest daughter decided to experiment with different bath bomb recipes.

DIY Bath Bombs

She’s very sciencey and always smitten with a challenge, so it took her only a few hours of experimentation to come up with a perfect fizzy bath bomb concoction. She’s had numerous friends and family members volunteer as “guinea pigs” lately and we’ve all agreed hands down, that these bath bombs are, well…the bomb. 

DIY Bath Bombs

When making your own DIY bath bombs, the world is your oyster as far as shapes, sizes, colors, fragrances, and surprise additions are concerned. My daughter likes to embellish her bath bombs with a hidden capsule inside that differs in color and always entices the recipient with an additional hidden treasure of sprinkles, glitter or even pop rocks for a special effect. The typical round bath bomb can be molded into a tennis ball that’s been cut in half. However, my daughter decided that she much prefers to make unique shapes out of a plethora of different plastic vessels for an individual touch.

DIY Bath Bombs

Why not surprise someone this Valentine’s Day with a personalized DIY bath bomb? Tied up with a bow in a simple plastic wrap makes an impressive gift that anyone would love to receive.

DIY Bath Bombs

Treat those you love (as well as yourself) with a reason to indulge in a glorious bath any day of the year.

In case you missed it, here’s another suggestion for a relaxing bath ::

Wishing you a splendid Valentine’s Day!

Devil’s Food Cake Whoopie Pie

Devil’s food cake whoopie pies are a delicious way to show friends and family how much you love them this Valentine’s Day or any day!

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

For as long as I can remember, the week leading up to Valentine’s Day at my house has been filled with shoe boxes, bright colored construction paper, glitter, glue, handmade cards and hours of imagination and creation.

Elementary school is now but a fleeting memory and I must admit that I’m handling it, {sniff} quite, {sob}  well. My girls have blossomed into beautiful young ladies who are now getting ready to move onto high school and (I can’t believe that I’m typing these words) spend weekends visiting colleges. How is that possible? 

So the other day while I was shopping at my beloved Target, hurriedly rushing through the isles, I just may have taken a wrong turn and ended up in the Valentine section. Within moments I was surrounded by hundreds of happily chattering mothers holding the hands of rosy cheeked children who where gleefully picking and choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day cards to fill their beautifully decorated boxes… that they had just finished making at home with bright colored construction paper, glitter and glue. I swear that I could hear the music from Little House on the Prairie in the background, making it all the more traumatic to realize that I had a cart full of toilet paper and cleaning supplies, rather than my sweet little chubby cheeked cherubs eating popcorn and slurping a slushy. It was at that moment, through my tear filled eyes, that I spotted the devil’s food cake mix and I knew what I had to do. I must admit that I felt a bit torn about my initial intentions. For a split second I considered whipping up the batch of devil’s food cake to eat my sorrows away.

But then I remembered my heart shaped whoopie pie pan  and I envisioned my not-so-little-anymore darlings digging into each chocolate whoopie pie with a little girl glee. My mouth turned up into a Grinch-like grin I knew with certainty that, “I have to make heart whoopie pies for my girls!”. I’m still not certain if I said it out loud or in my head, and I don’t really remember driving home come to think of it. But what I do know is, once I stepped into the quite solitude of my kitchen,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

and began the simple process of making a boxed recipe with some of my favorite kitchen staples,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

my heavy heart was enlightened.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

I became calm and relaxed and enveloped in the sweet bliss of baking.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

Baking something for the people that I love and cherish,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

even though they have the audacity to blossom and mature into beautiful young ladies.

Beautiful young ladies who relished in the whoopie pies while entertaining me with their wit and humorous stories about their day. This time I had tears of laughter filling my eyes and I was grateful for who my daughters have become.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

My heart soared and I just wanted to shout “whoooooopppieeeeeeee!” But I didn’t, because that would be weird. Not to mention, my two sweet young ladies would be the first to point that out to me and I just wanted to relish in the moment.

Here’s another decadent chocolatey Valentine’s Day treat ::

Wishing you a delightful Valentine’s Day full of lots of lighthearted whooooooppppieeeee!

DIY Wine Glass Charms

These easy DIY wine glass charms will add a personalized touch to your party that your guests will admire and appreciate.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

I can’t count how many times I’ve been hosting or attending a party or casual gathering, that somebody didn’t say, “Is this my glass?” It just seems to come with the territory. So when I entertain, I like to embellish my glasses with some sort of charm or clever tag. As of late I’ve been celebrating winter and all of its old school charm with all sorts of ideas and projects for a winter themed dinner party. I made yarn pom poms into a darling garland for my fireplace and I decided that these sweet little snowball-like pom poms would be just precious tied onto my wine glasses.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

I knew that I wanted to keep the pom poms off-white so to distinguish each glass, I tied on an assortment of tiny silver charms (from Jo Ann Fabrics). I selected charms that had something to do with winter and/or my tablescape, like snowflakes, pinecones and ice skates, to keep my theme consistent.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

They were a cinch to put together. I just thread the yarn of the pom pom through the ring of the charm and tied them onto the stems of the glasses.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

No more “Is this my glass?” Not to mention they’re stinkin’ cute, aren’t they?

Here are some of my other ideas for a winter themed party ::

Happy Hostessing!

Winter Table Place Settings

These winter table place setting ideas are a delightful way to embrace all of the simple beauty that a cozy winter day has to offer.

Winter Table Place Settings

Winter adventures always remind me of the simple delights of the days gone past. Visions of enchanting small towns nestled in a blanket of white. Quaint little frozen ponds surrounded by pine trees dressed in sparkling gowns of snow. Sleigh bells that jingle softly in the distance. I’m not sure why I paint those winter scenes in my mind, but they always comfort my soul somehow. So this January, I decided to create a table with all of those charming vintage images in mind.

I began with candles wrapped in sweaters sitting upon disks of wood surrounded by various sizes of pinecones for my centerpiece. I talked about how to make the sweater candles here.

Winter Table Place Settings

I added some mercury glass hurricanes for some icy sparkle.

Winter Table Place Settings

Each place setting has a ratan placemat (that I picked up last summer in Maine from a sweet antique store) I’ve seen similar placemats at TJ Maxx. I decided to use an antique pie plate as a charger beneath the bowl for added charm and a simple off white bowl with a blue line to match the blue and white mattress ticking tablecloth. (Next week I’ll be sharing a scrumptious white chicken chili to fill those bowls).

Winter Table Place Settings

And guess what? The tablecloth is fabric from Walmart!! Just left the edges raw and frayed. I love the look! Mattress ticking has always made my heart sing!

I used small silver frames as the place cards.

Winter Table Place Settings

And the napkin rings are merely a thin band cut from the arm of a sweater. So sweet and so simple.

Winter Table Place Settings

An antique sled leans against the fireplace adorned with vintage ice skates and a scarf. A subtle nod to the winter adventures I imagine to be taking place before gathering around this winter table.

Winter Table Place Settings

Who doesn’t love the idea of a cold winter evening spent cuddled up around a table that glows with candles wrapped in sweaters, bowls filled with pipping hot chili and friends all around? It’s a treat like no other when you gather people you love around a beautifully set table and relish in good food and conversation. You know, like they did back in the olden days. Without cell phones and interruptions. Just good old fashioned fun.

Winter Party Theme Ideas

These winter theme party ideas are simple and inexpensive yet will make your guests warm and cozy as you entertain during the winter months.

Winter Party Theme Ideas

I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had lately as I’ve transformed my living room into an inviting, cozy, haven. It’s so delightful to come inside and snuggle into the warm comforting surroundings on these bitter cold days. Usually the winter months drag on endlessly for me. But this year, I’m just having too much fun all snuggled up. And you should too!! Why not invite some friends over to warm up with a magical winter dinner party after a fun afternoon of sledding or skiing!? You won’t believe how easy these party theme ideas are to make! Today I’m sharing my fireplace decoration ideas with you.

I embellished my mantle with a garland made of yarn pom poms. 

Winter Party Theme Ideas

They are so simple to make (I did a tutorial here).  I used a small and medium sized pom poms and tied them onto a piece of yarn.

Winter Party Theme Ideas

I just love how the garland turned out! Reminds me of little puffy snowballs.

The candles are made out of sweaters! Or maybe I should say candle cozies. I used the arms of sweaters and tall and short glasses that I picked up for a few dollars at a thrift store. Make sure you use children’s sized sweaters because the arms are smaller and hug tightly around glasses. Some of the candles have the top folded down as a cuff, others do not. I used different textures and patterns of a similar palette for an all over cohesive look.

Winter Party Theme Ideas

I didn’t even need to finish the edges of the candle sweater cozies. None of the sweaters unraveled and I thought the unfinished edge add charm.

I found an old window at an antique store and leaned it on the mantle. Gazing through window panes always reminds me of winter, not to mention it gives height and visual interest to the scene. I hung a scarf wreath (find the how-to here) in the center for another cozy touch.

Winter Party Theme Ideas

Now if that mantle doesn’t say cozy, warm and snuggly then I don’t know what does!? I love that a few simple DIY’s made this winter scene affordable and enchanting at the same time.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

DIY wreaths made with scarves are a cozy way to embellish your home during the winter months. They cost next to nothing and take minutes to put together.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

I’ve been up to some winter fun around here! I decided jazz up my January by setting the scene for a festive warm-up dinner after some outdoor winter fun. During the next few weeks I’l be sharing decorating ideas, DIY projects and delicious recipes, that will melt away the cold and warm up your heart as well as your home. The first easy and festive project is this DIY wreath made out of scarves.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

I decided to hit the thrift shops and found the most beautiful wool scarves and sweaters for my winter party at only a couple of dollars a piece. I bought a few foam wreath forms from my local craft store and then went to town. All I did was wrap the scarves around the foam, (which actually worked beautifully because the wool stuck to the foam so it didn’t slip).

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

Then used these floral pins (that have pearls on the end), to adhere the scarf to the foam. They were perfect.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

A couple of the scarves had tassels on each end, but no worries! Just tuck them in before sticking in the pins!

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

Isn’t it just as cute as can be!?

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

Here are a couple of the other scarf wreaths I made for my winter fun party! I just love all the textured lines in this one.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

And this one is so soft and etherial.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

(You can take a sneak peak in the mirror to get a glimpse of the fireplace and mantle decorations. I’ll be sharing those next.)

DIY Wreaths With A Scarf

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make DIY wreaths made with scarves ::

  • foam ring from your local craft store (choose any size you like)
  • scarf (choose any type or color that tickles your fancy) I found all of mine at a local thrift store.
  • floral pins that have a pearl at the end (I found that these worked the best to affix the scarves because the pearl at the end kept the scarf secure)
  • yarn or ribbon to hang your wreath

DIY wreaths made with scarves. So easy, so darling and cost so little! I can’t wait to show you the rest of my winter party details! Hope you’ll come back for the fun!

Stay warm and cozy!

Fetching Finds :: Bar Keepers Friend

Bar Keepers Friend is a constant companion of mine. It will clean and polish your ceramic or stainless steel pots and pans and make your porcelain sink sparkle.

Fetching Finds Bar Keepers Friend

Have you ever tried Bar Keepers Friend? Well if you haven’t, let me introduce you. This fetching find was discovered years ago from a dear friend who happened to be working in a William Sonoma store at the time. We were chit chatting in my kitchen, and she noticed that my sink had stainless steel streaks in it. You know, the kind that come from scrubbing a sticky stubborn pan and it scoots about in the sink leaving silver trails everywhere. She kindly suggested I try Bar Keepers Friend, a product she used at work, to remedy both problems, the sticky pans and the streaks (without scratching!) I ran out and bought some the very next day and it’s been a staple cleaning product in my house ever since!

Fetching Finds Bar Keepers Friend

Some of you may know that I am an avid antiquer. (Is that a word?) I pick up sweet little enamel pots and pans and plates and bowls any chance I get. But the old ones usually have stains and discoloration from years of love and use. I had accepted that it was all just part of the charm. Until recently. I put a sprinkle of this stuff on and it scrubbed it right off. 

Fetching Finds Bar Keepers Friend

I was astonished! Why hadn’t I thought of that earlier!? So I decided that I just had to share my discovery with all of you!

Fetching Finds Bar Keepers Friend

Would you just look at that sweet antique enamel double boiler. Good as new. But it’s not. Which is even better in my book. Old and charming with a cleaned up look. Perfect.

Some tips about Bar Keepers Friend ::

  • use it to clean porcelain and stainless steel sinks
  • for tough sticky stains in pot and pans, sprinkle some in with a tiny mist of water, let sit a few minutes, then rub clean with a sponge
  • works beautifully on discolored enamelware items
  • it has no smell at all which is a total plus if you ask me!!

Disclamer : This is not a paid post. I just simply love this product and wanted to share it with you!

May your sinks and pans be shiny and bright!

xoxo-

Wenderly
