Sweet Citrus Valentine Crafts

Citrus Valentine Craft Ideas | Little Owl Lane

Citrus has been all the rage this season, and I've noticed oranges in particular are very popular. I had some extra blood oranges to use up, so what better way than with this cute craft?

A simple stamp like this one could be used as a valentine itself by writing, "Orange Ya Gonna Be Mine?" or something silly like that inside your card! ;)

While making Valentine dinner for your sweetie, this idea of using a clementine rind as a votive is pretty impressive! I came across this craft on Apartment Therapy

My 'candle' only lasted 10 minutes, but I feel it would have lasted a little longer if I would have added more olive oil. For the complete how to, follow the link above. It's pretty neat!

Have a lovely Valentine's Day!
