Show your sweetheart you love them when you craft this easy and inexpensive no sew Valentine’s Day heat pack. You can craft your own heat pack in just minutes and using items from your local dollar store. The end result is the perfect solution to sore and aching muscles or just for warming cold skin. Here is how you can get started crafting your own!
- Valentine’s Day sock ($1 a pair at Dollar Tree)
- Dried rice (about 1 cup)
- Hot glue, glue gun
- Small jar or glass
- Begin by placing your sock in the jar and folding the mouth over the opening. This will hold the sock open so you can easily pour the rice in.
- Slowly pour the rice in so that the sock is about ¾ of the way full.
- Fold over the end of the sock. Use a generous amount of hot glue to hold the end in place. It is important to fold over and secure well so rice stays in and doesn’t fall out.
We took some twine and wrapped our heat pack up for gift giving. To use your rice pack, all you need to do is place it in the microwave for 30 seconds. You can continue to heat it in 30 second intervals until it is the temperature of your choosing.
