c'est pour ton valentin ?



Now...how did you clean the molds? How easily does beeswax wash off?

I LOVE the garland hanging in the window!


What a perfect tutorial for today! I love those little paper clips! Your garland looks so happy and filled with love.


I will do this with the kids
each kid can do a heart!
How fun, what a cute and lovely
tutorial! I can't wait till
tomorrow to see your new softie!
What made you come up with this
Idea? I guess you could put a
wick in them and when you was
done with it as a garland you
could use them as candles.
But I don't think I would get
tired of looking at them, they
are so sweet~
Thank you,
Rane and hubby.


By the way I love the news
paper you used, between the
2 candles at the bottom of the
photo. "Focus on staying safe."
Great choice!
Rane and Hubby...who needs to get
to work..LOL!

Margie: I love this post. You have such great ideas and tutorials. I have tried a previous one of yours and it was so easy! Where do you get your beeswax? If I melted wax in a "not so old pot" will I be able to get it clean again? Love the snow outside at your house--brings back memories.


How sweet! WHERE did you get those wonderful heart molds? My niece is making melted crayon hearts for valentine exchanges.


Thank you, thank you, thank you! I think you've just inspired our Valentine crafting. I'll have to show my son when he gets home. I ordered beeswax from an etsy seller, and I have that on hand. Yay!

Can't wait to see your softie tomorrow. It sounds like a work of art!


Yeah we have a new Preident!
So much sets on his sholders.
The faith of so many and the
hope of the past, may all he
says and tries comes to pass.
Bless him.
Rane and kids.

A few comments to the comments. Do not place the beeswax decorations in a hot sunny window or near a source of heat. They will melt if it is warm enough. It is very cold outside here and the kitchen window only gets the early morning sun. I use an old broken pot to melt the wax and do not use it for anything else. You can get one at the thrift store for next to nothing. These heart molds were purchased from the bulk food store but I think you might be able to buy them at Michael's . They are made of silicone ( yes like the implants) and amazingly enough the wax just comes off them without a trace. I will definitely use them for cupcakes or heart shapes brownies. You can also make heart shaped candles the same way adding a wick instead of a paperclip. Thanks everyone.


What a cute idea!!


Your garland is gorgeous, and I especially like how it looks in the window, accented with acorns. It's so perfect for Valentine's Day -- or any day of love really :)

What a sweet idea !!


I just love this tutorial - thank you so much for posting it. I'm not sure if I'll get around to it this year, but it's definitely bookmarked for the future!


I love the garland. What are the round thing hanging in between, they kind of look like a sunflower pattern stamped into leather..??


Thank you for this tutorial, we just did it and I am so happy with how easy it is and how sweet these little hearts are!
