10+ Homemade Valentine Ideas

  1. Heart Cookie Bouquet

    You will need:cookie heart sprinkles
    • Sugar cookie dough
    • Red or colored sprinkles
    • Popsicle sticks
    Roll out your sugar cookie dough on a floured surface. Cut out cookies with the cookie cutters you’d like to use. Place on cookie sheet. Push a popsicle stick into the dough of each cookie. Press the cookie dough over the top of each stick. If needed you can use a scrap of dough and press onto the top of the stick.

    Fill a cup with water and dip a pastry brush into the water. Brush each cookie with water and add sprinkles to each. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

    Allow to cool. To assemble a bouquet, find a basket, bowl or vase you'd like to use. You will need a piece of Styrofoam to go in the bottom of your basket. You can cut the Styrofoam to fit.

    Frost your cookies if you'd like. Push your cookie sticks into the Styrofoam assembling a bouquet however you'd like. Add a bow or whatever decorations you wish to finish your cookie bouquet.

  13. Make homemade candy wrappers. Use miniature candy bars or normal size candy bars that are wrapped in foil. Slide off the outside wrapper but leave the foil wrapped chocolate intact. Using cardstock, measure a rectangle that will go around your candy bar and leave a few inches on the sides where your foil will be seen. Cut out the measured rectangle and decorate and embellish as you choose. Wrap your new wrapper around your foiled chocolate bar. Tape it in place on the back.
