Copycrafter Friday....Valentine Tree's

We are starting something new on Friday's called "Copycrafter Friday." Kellie and I get a lot of our craft ideas from Pinterest and Blogs. We like to think we copy them and make them even better but sometimes it's just straight up copied! So to get us started, this week I found these cute Valentine Trees from Lolly Jane. My crafting friend Candice came over and we put these together in just a few hours start to finish. They turned out adorable.
You can find Lolly Jane's full tutorial here.
These were super easy to make. First gather your supplies:
I got my styrafoam cones, felt and pins from Hobby Lobby and the small candlesticks from the Dollar Tree.
To make,  just cut out hearts (we freehanded them by folding over felt and cutting half a heart) and pin them upside down to the tree.
After that attach your heart (also found at the dollar tree) to the top, and glue your painted candlesticks to the base and your done.
A fun and easy craft!
Thanks to for the fun idea! Check out their site for other cute ideas!

Welcome to the Hive

My daughter turned 12 over the holidays and entered a new phase of life.  Part of her birthday celebration included this Beehive cake.  It was awesome!  Katherine created this cake from a picture I gave her.  It looks exactly like the picture.  

It was deliciously BEEutiful!
