VALENTINE DIY

I love decorating our home for each holiday. Here are some easy and quick DIY projects that are perfect for celebrating the day of love all month long.

Valentine Tree
I can’t take credit for this, this is all my sister. Create a Valentine tree using branches (from the craftstore), felt and ribbon. Simply cut heart shapes from your choice of colored felt, string twine or ribbon through to create a loop and hang on the branches. For added dimension, cut ribbon and tie around the branches.

Whimsical Magnets
Now that we have a toddler who loves to draw, we constantly have pictures to display on our refrigerator. Make adorable magnets with felt shapes and animals that are already done. Just hot glue a magnet to the back, add a little buffer to prevent scratching the door and voila! Super cute magnets that any little will love to use to display their artwork.


I found this set of six woodland animals ready to go with clothespins attached to the back. I added a small heavy duty magnet and felt pad to the back.

Washi Tape Bunting
You can find these all over Pinterest & Etsy if you haven’t seen any yet. This DIY tutorial below is from Gathering Beauty. Grab some twine or decorative yarn and your favorite washi tapes. Cut your desired length, wrap it around the yarn and trim your edges. So fun, creative and easy!
Make a long banner to display over a chalkboard or bulletin board or use as decorative gift wrap, a short one to display on a cake or attach to your valentines.

Confetti Stix
I pinned this about a week ago from Best Friends for Frosting {if you don’t already follow all their boards, start now, they’re amazing!} These are fun to add to your valentines or even have them for a Valentine party or brunch. Check out the whole tutorial here!
