Blooming Valentines With Oriental Trading Company

Nothing says Valentine's Day more than flowers and candy!
So why not create a blooming Valentine for someone special?

This project is easy enough for kids to do and will make them a big hit with their friends.

I started by shopping the huge selection of Valentine related items on the Oriental Trading website. They have a Valentine's craft section, as well as a Valentine's party supply section, and I found just what I needed for this project.

I started with these cute little metal pails filled with heart shaped chocolate candy. You can find them HERE.

I removed the candy...

Then I placed the pail upside down on floral foam, pressed it into the foam to make a template, and cut it out. Smaller children with need help with this part.


I then pressed the floral foam into the pail...

I created flowers using foam hearts (found HERE) and adorable hot air balloon shaped lollipops (found HERE).


I used a small hole punch to add a hole at the base of the foam hearts...


Then I threaded them onto the lollipops...


I placed the candy hearts back into the pails, then inserted the lollipop flowers into the floral foam.

For a pretty backdrop, I created a banner by connecting paper doilies (found HERE) together using glue dots...



Love will bloom when you share this deliciously cute craft with the people you adore!


Oriental Trading supplied me with the items used, however all opinions are my own. Check them out the next time you are on the hunt for craft supplies!
