Chalkboard Valentines for the Garden

Years ago I purchased a little garden stake that said "Bee Mine," and I loved that little sign.  Unfortunately when Cindy was a puppy, she liked it too,  just in a different way.  She destroyed it.  She was going through her chewing phase, but I always thought it was so cute to have a little sign to welcome us for Valentine's Day.  I did a couple of ideas with chalkboard paint.  These are little wooden hearts I purchased at the craft store.  I glued them onto Popsicle sticks and tied red and white checked ribbon around them.  These are so easy, they would be a great child's project. They were also very economical to make, around 50 cents a stick.   In the second photo, that is actually a bee.  I just used one that was attached to something else because I was using what I had, but there are some cute bee decorations out there if you can locate them.

I love anything chalkboard. Yesterday while at 15 occasional sales I saw very few chalkboards of any kind. I'm thinking everyone picked those up before I got there, like they would of your cute little pot stickers!
