Looking for a quick and easy alternative to candy Valentines? These free printable Valentine tags make it easy to send your child to school with a creative (and sugarless) treat for his or her classmates! The “I’m stuck on you, Valentine” tag goes great with stickers, temporary tattoos, and even band aids. They work well for both girls and boys – include a couple Spiderman stickers/tattoos and boys will love them too!

For those of you who don’t believe in a candy-free Valentine’s day (who does?!), the next option is for you! I also made a “I’m sweet on you, Valentine” version that makes it easy to divvy up some bulk candy and save a little money!

DIY Wine Bottle Holiday Sweaters

We’ve moved our blog! Check it out here: http://blog.vickybarone.com

Here’s a cheap and creative way to dress up a hostess gift this holiday season!

Wine Bottle Covers

Do it yourself wine bottle sweaters for the holidays! We got this idea from a catalog that featured wine bottles snuggled up in some cute “ugly” Christmas sweaters.

What you need: felt, thread, buttons, hot glue, a sewing machine, and whatever other decorations you can use to dress up your sweater (pom poms, ribbon, etc.). Oh, and of course a wine bottle that needs some outerwear. We had some fun using all of the different stitching options on the sewing machine to decorate the red stripes on the gray sweater. Be creative!

Vicky Barone Wine Bottle Cover Template

Check out the post on our new blog for the free PDF! You can use to get your sweater to fit just right! It’s sized so that you can do the stitching on the outside where it is visible (we think it’s super cute like that!). If you’d like to hide the stitching, you can extend the template a quarter of an inch or so, but be warned that the felt will be very bulky when you flip it right side out after it’s sewn.

These are great to have on hand to fancy up a bottle of holiday spirits you might be sharing with friends and family this season. They also look great on the kitchen counter as Christmas decor if you can’t seem to part with them!

Free Printable Holiday Gift Tags

Looking for an easy and stylish way to fancy up your packages? Check out my free printable reindeer gift tags!  They feature the artwork from my personalized Christmas ornaments by Oopsy Daisy.

Once you download them, you can print them on regular paper or card stock. Cut them out and use a hole punch to make a hole or just tape them directly to a gift.  I used a star-shaped hole punch to add a little interest but they would look great with just a circle too!
