Christmas clearance Valentine makeovers...

Although it's only mid-January, my crafting brain has turned to Valentine projects.  My local grocery chain (Meijer) is carrying these vintage-inspired chocolate boxes. I'm a sucker for anything vintage looking and the $1.49 price tag isn't bad either.  
Over the last week, I stopped by Target and Dollar General and picked up a couple of Christmas items that were 90% off.  
The red felt tree skirt (Dollar General) received a few felt hearts and is now my Valentine tree skirt for my year-round sunroom tree.  Excuse the wrinkles.  I haven't decorated the tree yet, but I've added a few red lights.
The fabric houses and felt heart were part of this year's Target line of ornaments  and with a few embellishments, they will also be added to my Valentine tree.  
Are you working on any special Valentine projects?
XOXO

I those little cottages, but couldn't think of anything to do with them. Darn it! They would have been great on my pink tree. I finished up my Heart to Heart Swap so I am done with Valentine making. I think. You never know......:)

I've pinned and made lots of valentine goodies! I found ribbon on clearance 80% off in reds that is just fine for RED HOLIDAY #2! Are you readying for Chinese New Year too?

Oh, I wish we had that grocery store! Cute! I've been doing lots of Valentine crafting and card making. Still have to decorate my little purple tree.

Wish we had a target closer than an hour drive, you found some sweet bargains. Love your new tree skirt.

Well, I guess I'm going to Meijers this morning! Those are just adorable! I have done NO Valentine's crafting yet. I have a few ideas of things I want to do, but time is slipping away from me.

Everything is cute as can be, Kim!

Oh how I wish I had a Target or Dollar General near me!

I'm crafting for selling Valentine items. Mostly Yo yo related things and maybe a Valentines rag ball garland. :)

I never thought about the fact that you need tree skirts throughout the year for the different holidays! Your transformation of the felt one looks like it was made for Valentine's Day!
