DIY CRAFT: Valentine’s Day Love Monsters

Wonderful Halos “Valentine’s Day Monsters”

DIY CRAFT: Valentine’s Day Love Monsters

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and you might need snacks for a school party, or maybe you want to bring something fun to the office!  Halos are healthy and fun snacks that everyone LOVES!  My kids always ask me to get Halos when I go grocery shopping, so this cute craft was number one on a list to do! Kids will have so much fun creating their own Love Monsters!

DIY CRAFT: Valentine’s Day Love Monsters

DIY Craft

Creates (12) total

• (1) box of Wonderful Halos

• (24 halves) Pipe cleaners

• (24) Googly eyes

• (2 sheets) Felt

• (2 sheets) Heart candy stickers

Supplies you’ll need:

• Scissors

• Hot glue gun + hot glue


• Start by fashioning each half of the pipe cleaner into a heart shape; twist bottom ends together

• Once heart “ears” are fashioned, puncture bottom ends of the pipe cleaners into the top of the Halo mandarin

• Use scissors to cut a 2 ” heart shape from the felt

• Hot glue felt heart to the bottom of the Halo mandarin, leaving the top of the heart sticking out to create “feet.”

• Hot glue two googly eyes to the front of the Halo mandarin

• Decorate with heart candy stickers as desired

You can get Halos at most grocery stores and PLEASE grab a couple of boxes for Valentine's day treats or just to snack on at the house.  My teens eat at least three at a time.  I don't mind because it's better than candy and chips.  Getting kids to eat fruit sometimes can be hard, so if you make it fun, you might have better luck.
