Valentine's Day Prize Punch

Three years ago, I came up with the idea of using dollar store supplies to create a "prize punch" for my son's birthday party. Since then, prize punches have become staples at all my boys' parties... but I have never made one for Valentine's day... until now. Check out my Valentine's Day prize punch below (including all the instructions you need to make one of your own).

I started out by drawing a large heart on a piece of pink foam core that I found at the dollar store. Then, I positioned red solo cups in the heart and filled them with treats and trinkets.

Then, one at a time, I removed the cups from the heart. I applied hot glue just below the top rim of the glass and applied a piece of tissue paper to the top. (You can add a second piece of tissue paper for a little added strength.) Then, I applied a ring of hot glue to the bottom of the cup and stuck it to the foam core.

When all the glasses have been attached, the Valentine's Day prize punch is finished!

I always make these prize punches for parties, but I made this one just for my boys. I think they are going to love poking through the tissue paper and claiming their prizes on Valentine's Day.

It really is a simple project, and it's always a big hit at parties. If you make one, let me know how it goes!
