10 Fabulous Valentines DIY Projects
It can be pretty easy to spend a small fortune on Valentines day, so I am on an endeavour to find cheaper alternatives, and what better than totally handmade projects?! Today I want to share 10 of my favourite DIY finds for Valentines Day. There’s a project here for every budget but I did try to find cheaper versions! The image above is a mailing bag made from a cereal box! I added some cross stitch to a lovely cupcake gift box to fill with delicious goodies and give to my love!
This is a better view of the mail bag from Minted blog! I love the whole set up of this little photo shoot, it’s absolutely adorable and it’s a great way to involve your kids in valentine’s day!
Doesn’t this look like a fabulously fancy piped fabric cushion?! No! It’s fabric, papier-mache letters, trimmed piping and glue! This DIY was created by Amy for Positively Splendid.
This Pinata mailer is such a unique and fun project to make for valentines! Pack it full of chocolate and send it my way!
I haven’t eaten Love Heart sweets in years. I’ve noticed that these things are called Conversation Hearts in the States but I digress! These are some rather beautiful gift boxes courtesy of Damask Girl.
I adore this little Love Heart banner! I realise they aren’t quite the traditional Love Heart sweeties but I don’t know if we have these in the UK. I could be mistaken. This is a printable banner and all you have to do is string it up! It’s available in Spanish and English so get printing.
I adore these painted, bead drink stirrers! They’re rather fabulous ^_^
I don’t know if you guys saw at christmas, I made a branch christmas tree that I secured inside a plant pot, this is the same idea only this particular branch tree is decorated with hearts for valentines! It’s such a lovely idea. I love the idea of decorating for the seasons. Like you all, I’m a very visual person and I always have been. I love being reminded of the seasons with little decorative touches.
This little DIY is particularly adorable and I got very excited because it’s a Victorian Valentines Booklet, I’m a huge fan of mini albums of all kinds.
This DIY is for papercraft lovers everywhere! Paper hearts are very simple to create and you can get the full tutorial over at How About Orange.
I get very impressed anytime someone gets out their saw for a diy project, simply because I know I would never be bothered to do something like that! So well done for creating an amazing looking heart from tree branches! I love it!
