My boys LOVED the Countdown to Santa calendar that I drew on our chalkboard wall for Christmas, so I knew I wanted to create a fun Valentine’s Day “advent” calendar for February. When Target offered to send me a box of Valentine’s themed American Crafts craft supplies from their One Spot, I jumped at the chance. As soon as the box arrived on my doorstep I ripped it open and was thrilled to find that it contained the perfect items to create a fun and stylish Valentine’s countdown banner!
You’ve all heard me say a million times that Target is my happy place, and the One Spot is the cherry on top. I’ve always made it my first stop on my way into the store, but recently the goodies I’ve been finding there just keep getting better! Seriously, have you seen the adorable wrapping paper and gift tags they’ve had lately?
For Valentine’s Day, the One Spot is stocked with over 40 amazing craft products, ranging from washi tape and stickers, to kraft and chalkboard basics, and even the ever popular striped straws – all for between $1-3! Here’s just a glimpse at some of the One Spot Valentine products I received in the mail a few days ago…
I immediately started sorting through all the goodies I received looking for the items that would be perfect to create my Valentine’s countdown calendar, and I settled on two packages and white and kraft treat bags, some cute pennant banners, and a roll of red and white washi tape to start with.
After testing out several different metallic pen and marker options to see what would show up on the black pennants, I discovered that the gold Sharpie paint marker, which I had left over from my chalkboard globe project, worked perfectly.
