Valentine's Door Decorations

 

Today's snack: Make a heart sandwich! If you have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, use that. Or just cut hearts out of bread, lunchmeat (ham, turkey, bologna, etc.) and cheese (thin slices of Swiss, cheddar, American, etc.). Stack as you wish, and eat. Then have fun eating the non-heart-shaped parts that are left over, and you'll be full. Waste not, want not!

 

--------------------

 

A Christmas wreath doesn't look too smashing on your door by the first of February. But it's too cold for a floral decoration. What to do? Have some fun! Here are some wacky, homespun door decorations for Valentine's Day conversation starters and day-brighteners:

 

n       Hang a heart-shaped basket on your door with wrapped candy inside and a note: "Take one! Through this door pass the sweetest people in the world."

 

n       Post the familiar love poem "Roses are red / Violets are blue. . ." and every day, tape on two new, humorous ending lines, such as "I'd open this door / If I were you."

 

n       Cut out a huge heart from a piece of foam-core board or poster board. Decorate with a pink and red patchwork of fabric scraps, bits of ribbon, blobs of glitter, paint, buttons, candy hearts and whatever else you have around.

 

n       Cupid Smashed: trace around someone laying face down on a piece of poster board or butcher paper like a crime-scene victim; with a marker pen, label this "person" as "Cupid" and embellish the drawing by adding "wings" and a "bow and arrow"; cut out the outline. This is what Cupid would look like if he smashed into your glass door in his rush to spread love inside your home. Tape him on your door; include little marks all the way around it to emphasize the "impact," and don't forget the word "Splat!"
