Valentine's Day DIY Card

With Valentine’s day right around the corner, I couldn’t be more excited to share with you a simple yet lovely DIY Valentines day card! 

This DIY project won't take you more than a half-hour and will be sure to make your loved one feel very special. 
Here is what you will need to complete your very own Valentine's Day Moon card! 

-Watercolor & brushes 
-Heavy duty paper or watercolor paper
-Oil Pastels 
-Masking tape (I used scotch because I'm out) 
-Water/Paper towel for blotting 

First start by folding your paper in half and crease down the middle.
Then, if you would like to customize the card size cut an inch off the top and the side. 
Next, tape around the sides very gently to give the card a framed look. 
Note: Try not to press down too hard if you are using scotch tape!

Start out by drawing a circle just above the center mark with your white oil paste.l
You can push down hard on the pastel once you have your circle made and are happy with the size.  Be sure to fill in all the space where you want your moon to be. You want the white oil pastel to look a little mushy. 
Once you have finished your white moon, continue with the white pastel and start making stars all around the top 3/4 of the card.  Add white specs and as many stars as you want! 
Underneath the moon, write your message.  I found it easier to use the sharp edge of the pastel to get cleaner lines. 
Then, take your gray pastel and start making little circles to add texture to your moon. I added the gray circles and then went over them in white to blend. 

Next, get your watercolor ready...
Test on the paper towel for your desired color and rock and roll!

New Years Eve Party Ideas ☆

New Year’s Eve is a fabulous holiday, ripe with celebratory possibilities.  So without further ado, here’s to New Beginnings & wonderful ways to welcome 2015!
Get The Look! Ultra Chic New Year's Eve Party

After chatting with my co-workers here at Luna bazaar, I could not help but share some of the totally awesome plans we've come up with to ring in the New Year.  Bear in mind, we are a rather eclectic crowd, which is what I love most about this list of New Year’s Eve party ideas - there should be something fun for every one!

For the Ultra Chic:

How to have a glitzy cocktail party for you and your entourage! ~
Start with a dress code and request all your guests to dress to the nines.  Then, like all classy hosts {and hostess'} work out the layout of your party space to promote ideal mixing and mingling for your guests to enjoy.  Shop our Get The Look! New Year's Eve collection for a stunning palette of gold, silver, white, black and grey decorations.  Set up a small “favor” table near the door.  As your guests arrive they can pick up some great party props and supplies for an evening of fun.  We're thinking home-made party hats, DIY straw mustaches & goofy glasses made with crepe paper, DIY Candy Poppers and DIY Confetti Poppers {see also: push-popper style home-made Confetti Poppers}.
Place a clock {or two} in some prominent places throughout your home, such as at the buffet or above the bar.  This way your guests can keep track of the countdown throughout the night {so important!}.  As for the party themes, check out some of our favorite buffet and bar menus for New Year's Eve, decked with all the seasonal glitz & metallics we are pining over:

~ A Glittery Holiday Fete via The Sweetest Occasion
~ A New Year's Eve Gold Rush Party via The Sweetest Occasion

For the Whole Family:

Hosting a sleep over for the kids?  Why not?!  It's fun to celebrate the New Year with children, so full of energy, hope & wonder.  Load up on sweet treats for an Apothecary Jar candy bar, and make some wonderful homemade party poppers filled with toys, candies, little trinkets, and jokes inside!  If you have the location for it, plan some night sledding or an outdoor campfire with a hot coco bar, and a wonderful s’mores bar!  Plus, check out this radical Mock-Champagne for your New Years Toast! {Non-alcoholic} Recipe via Oh So Delicioso.

For additional New Year's Eve for Kids party ideas check out the Best New Year's Eve Ever! via Craftibilities.

For the Laid Back & Over Worked:

And, last but not least, my personal favorite ☺~ a small and simple make your own pizza party!
Ask all of your guests to bring a topping, and then mix & match buffet style!  Set a table to host all of the pot luck pieces of your pies.  Keep it simple, and easy, this way even the host can kick back and relax with their friends!

For additional ideas, please take a moment to visit our New Year's Eve Pinterest inspiration board.

All in all, no matter what you choose to do to celebrate New Beginnings, always remember to slow down so you can take a moment to appreciate your guests, share in the good times and look forward to the year to come.  Happy New Year's from the LB Team!
