Se7en Hearts and Then Some More…

February 6th, 2010 · 18 Comments

It is that time of year when everywhere is going heart mad and so today we joined the fray…

  1. Scrap Heart: Because everyone needs something pretty. Make a heart shape out of florist wire (it is soft and bendy), cut fabric scraps into strips, tie them onto your heart frame, the more the merrier.

  3. Bark Heart: Because everyone needs a little natural factual. Set my boys lose to carve some bark mulch from the garden.

  5. Patch Heart: Because we are so into patches right now. Follow the link to find out how we make our patches.

  7. Egg Heart: Because everyone needs breakfast. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to remove the middle of the bread and then pop an egg into the heart and fry it like a regular egg – just for fun – eggs in toast!!!

  9. Sweet Heart: Because everyone needs a little sweetness. Thread your sweeties onto a wire heart.

  11. Jelly Heart: Because everyone needs a bite-size treat. Make your jelly using half the recommended liquid then use a small cookie cutter to cut the hearts out and stack up different shades of jelly.

  13. Cookie Heart: Because everyone needs a bit of chocolate. Cream 1/2 a cup of butter and 1/2 a cup of caramel brown sugar and 1/2 a cup of sticky brown sugar together. Add an egg to the mixture. Beat in a cup of self-raising flour (plain flour + 1 teaspoon of baking powder if you don’t have any). Finally, tip in a 100g of good quality melted chocolate and beat the mixture. Bake at 180 degrees for five to ten minutes. YUM.
