Uncommon Events: Classroom Valentines and Decor { from Target Clearance buys }

classroom valentines
I am so excited to share some Classroom Valentine goodies with you today! 
But first…. I have a little confession…

I may have gone a little crazy in the Target holiday clearance section last week.  I may have purchased a few {dozen} felt heart gift package toppers. I just got all a flutter when I realized that they were about 10 cents each, and before I knew it, they had hopped in my cart!   Not to worry… I had big plans for these little pretties…
First up were treat bags for La La’s preschool classmates.  I filled the cone shaped treat bags with Valentine candy corn and tied them with her sweet little note and a felt heart!  I used my favorite Valentine color combo of red, pink, and turquoise for these little goodie bags!  She was so excited, but looked at me like I was crazy when I told her we couldn’t bring them to school for another month!  Well, maybe I am crazy!  But what is a blogger to do?
The felt heart goodness continues on to a bright and cheery Valentine heart garland!  This was one of those incredibly easy projects that was done while I was catching up on my blogs! 

Here is all you need:
  • felt hearts
  • string (I found this awesome clothesline at the dollar store)
  • scissors
All you have to do is cut your string to the desired length and thread your hearts on!  Easy peasy, but oh so cute! 
I hope that you guys have a great weekend!

  1. So super cute! I have got to head to Target to see if I can find some! Very creative!

  2. Great buy and cute ideas! Score!

  3. Very cute!! Love those hearts!

  4. Love this! I often keep a lot of x mas decor out and use for Valentines Day..Such a frugal move and super cute banner!

  5. Adorable! I picked-up the same hearts the last time I was in the States :-)

  6. I picked up a bunch of the hearts as well for the same reason!! My Target only had white left, the colors are awesome!

  7. Love this post! It’s linky party time again on my blog! I hope you can join! Here is the link! Your friends are welcome too! http://www.thesouthernproductqueen.com/one-stop-shoppe-linky-party-2

  8. ugh . . . I too did a little ore Target shopping than planned. I’m always in love with felt ornaments!

  9. I stocked up when they were 30 cents. Now I feel like I overpaid! Thanks for some great ideas of what to do with these sweet little hearts. I have to make it through making birthday party favors for a friend and wedding activity books for a friend before I can get to Valentine’s day decorating!

  10. I’m glad I’m not the only one who went nuts at Target! My cousin had called to tell me about the hearts. She bought a bunch at 30 cents…I waited and bought out all the red ones for 10 cents each. I bought so many and can’t wait to start playing with them. I was going to make a similar garland…but you just gave me a great idea for another idea… :)

    Thanks!

  12. Ok, I felt like I was writing the beginning of your post myself. I did the same thing. i totally went nuts when I realized they were 10 cents per 3 pack! I thought of so many great ideas! Hung some blue ones from my chandelier today for an laid back baby shower. Love the garland idea.

  13. OMG – these are so perfect … how did Target miss this and give all us crafters such a great deal! I really love the garland – so cute :)

  14. This also makes me want little ones again. I love the cute little treat bags, those are great. Oh, I love Target too and I that store gets me to buy more stuff with their great buys lol.

  15. Ha! I had to bring my husband to Target with me to look for a baby’s first ornament, because I knew I’d buy something crazy like a hundred felt hearts for .10 each. It’s just such a great deal and there’s always something you can do with them! Super cute valentines!

  16. Super cute! Wish I had thought about Valentine’s Day when I saw those at Target last week too. :)

  17. I bought several packs of the white hearts for something…just not sure what yet!

  18. Oh, you came up with some great ideas for this deal. Nice.

  19. I love them both! That is so something I would do (buying all the hearts). You would be able to use them for so many things!

    Thanks for linking up to Tell it to Me Tuesday @ Creatively Living!

  21. I picked up a handful of those hearts as well, thinking they’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day. My Target was out of red but the other colors are great too.

  22. I hopped on over from Serenity Now when I saw those hearts. I picked up a whole lot of those hearts from Target a few weeks ago. I knew they would be perfect for valentine day projects! I plan on using mine for a mantle banner. Thanks for sharing all your ideas for them. Cheers and Happy Friday!

  23. She is going to be pretty popular passing those out on Valentines Day! Fantastic idea – way to think ahead!

  39. ohmygosh. These are such cute ideas. Love the turquoise additions to the traditional valentine’s day colors. I would have done the same thing if I were in Target. You never know where you can use them!

  40. Love how you used those hearts.

  41. You must be a kindred spirit because I did the same thing! I think I bought at least 30 packages. Figure I shouldn’t run out of hearts for a long time. I am going to make banners out of mine too for some of my girlfriends. So cute!

  42. Such creative ideas,it was meant for your to buy so many, because you are so creative to find so many ways to use them. So very cute. Thanks for sharing your inspiration at Sunday’s Best!

  43. Oh my word— I’m obsessed with Target clearance, how did I miss these?!?!?! What section were they in?? Anyway, LOVE what you’ve done with them :)

  54. I did the same thing! I used some for a craft in my daughter’s preschool class. We took two hearts and glued pretty cellophane in the middle. They are cute sun catchers now.
