Today’s five items are dedicated to saying I Love You! Take some time today to make your loved ones feel special with some of these Ways to Spell Out I Love You borrowed from, believe it or not, a February 18, 1997 issue of Family Circle written by Kathy Faggella and Janet Horowitz!

180. PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD

Try these fun food ways to spell out I Love You for your favorite person. One option is to melt chocolate and write it out. Another fun way to do this is to make pretzel letters. Also, if you have a fortune cookie left over from take-out, microwave it for 20 seconds and using a clean pair of tweezers to pull out the fortune and replace it with one of your own.

179. TEAR UP SOME MAGAZINES

Spell I love You by using magazines to make an I Love You collage. Another option is to use a magazine page (or a favorite photograph) to make an I Love You Jigsaw puzzle following these steps but cut out the letters first and then making the puzzle pieces. Make sure to vary the shape of the puzzle pieces so they aren’t too similar or your loved one will never be able to put it together.

178. BORROW YOUR KIDS’ SUPPLIES

An easy way to spell out I Love You is to borrow children’s magnetic letters to spell it out on a filing cabinet or refrigerator. Another way to use typical kid’s supply items is to use sidewalk chalk. Write I Love You as big as you can on the sidewalk or driveway so your loved one can see it when arriving home! For a more subtle option, cut up a piece of poster board and create a bookmark (in one of these standard sizes 2″ x 6″, 2″ x 7″,  2.5″ x 8.5″) by writing I Love You on it and decorating it and then placing it in the current book your loved on is reading. To add an element of surprise, inflate a balloon, in your loved one’s favorite color if possible, and write I Love You gently in a contrasting marker color then deflate the balloon. Give the balloon to your loved one and ask them to inflate it!

177. USE HOUSEHOLD BASICS TO SAY I LOVE YOU

Write I Love You in the mirror in a bathroom while your loved one is in the shower so the steam will show it when they come out. As another option use cotton swabs to write I Love You on cardstock or cardboard folded as a card with homemade invisible ink made from lemon juice.

176. HAVE SOME GARDEN FUN

Find some pebbles of approximately the same size and shape and decorate the garden by spelling out I Love You in a place where your loved one will walk by. Here is one more option, taken directly from the February 18, 1997 issue of Family Circle article, “Line a shallow cake pan (9″x13″) with plastic wrap, fill with 1″ to 1 1/2” of soil, and plant parsley, dill seeds, or alfalfa or bean sprouts so they can spell out I Love You. Cover with plastic wrap, set out of direct sunlight, mist often with water and wait a couple of weeks for the sprouts to appear. Then remove the plastic wrap, place near a sunny window, and trim as needed.”
