Lacey Heart Valentines Shirt

FYI-Head on over to Wanna Be Balanced Mom today to see my latest guest post featuring my new tutorial.  It's a super cute customizable character (make it  like your child) and rainbow magnet set to be used as a "chart" to get your kids eating healthy called Rainbow in My Tummy!

Doily Heart Valentines Day Shirt Craft
From Family Fun's February Issue


We have been really making use of our February issues of Family Fun Magazine! After making the Indoor Snowman...we made these Valentines Day shirt activity is something J was DYING to make when she saw it in the magazine.  I found the turtlenecks on clearance at Target for $1.78 and just cut the neckline as I did with her other clearance turtleneck shirt and made the turtleneck part into a headband (SEE HERE) We also tied a piece of tulle into a bow on the headband.  We did everything else the same, put a heart shaped doiley on top of the shirt and then the girls sponged on fabric paint.  After you remove the doiley, this is what it looks like....



You can find the instructions for this Adoily-able Shirt Here.

And we are making a bunch of valentines for our MOPS group that the kids can hand out to the residents at a retirement home so we used one of the valentines ideas from the February family fun too.  Instead of useing madlibs, We rolled up crossword puzzles, wrapped in a heart doiley and secured with a ribbon.
