Warm and Fuzzy {Free Printables}

So, it's almost Valentine's Day.  I never cared too much about Valentine's Day.  I mean, it's nice to celebrate those you love. And it's nice to get a sweet surprise.  But it's never been one of my favorite holidays or anything.

Until last year when I realized just how much fun it is to make your little boy give valentines to grown women.  Actually, there was very little making involved; Little Spaghetti was super into it.  I think he had a lot of fun with it.

It seemed to totally make people's day, too.  You should have seen him melt all those ladies' hearts.  Except the one librarian to whom he said, "No! There are none of these for you!" while he handed them out to every other librarian. 

Thankfully, he reconsidered about thirty seconds later and gave her one after all.

My favorite part is when we go visit people on our weekly outings, and there are a couple of them that still have his valentines hanging up by their desks almost a year later.  Which is also, sadly, when I'm finally getting around to blogging about them. 

But...Valentine's Day is coming up again, so I figured I might as well share our cute little fuzzy valentine guys from last year.

Aren't they cute? And fuzzy?

It's pretty much just a yarn pom pom (see this page for a tutorial on making yarn pom poms if you don't know how).  Then I glued on a foam heart at the bottom for feet, some googly eyes, and the antennae, which are just little pipe cleaners with glittery foam hearts.

Little Spaghetti had so much fun helping me make them that he asks me to make them on at least a monthly basis. We have a lot of warm fuzzies around our house these days.

I used some double sided tape to stick the little guys (or gals?) to the valentines...which I'm posting here as a free printable so you can make your own if you feel so inclined. Easy, cheap, and cute; that's my kind of project.

Anyway, Little Spaghetti has a fondness for things with eyes, so the project we've picked for this year's valentines will also feature a little smiling creature.  Stay tuned.  Maybe I'll blog about it before the next year goes by...
