21 Valentine’s Day DIYs That Don’t Suck


21 Valentine's Day DIY Ideas That Don't Suck

Well, I’ve been sucking pretty hard on the Valentine’s Day DIY front this year and it’s not because I didn’t feel like doing anything. It’s just because this year has kind of gotten away from me so far and I honestly don’t know how we’re almost to the middle of February already. Ugh.

Luckily though, the rest of blog land is totally on it – with Valentine’s Day DIY ideas oozing out of the figurative pores of the internet. SO, I put together a list of my absolute favorite ideas that you might want to try before February 14th hits us all in the face. All of these projects would be good for Galantine’s Day too, if that’s more your speed.

Thanks Sophie. I feel like I forget I made that one sometimes. But it was so pretty in person because of all the fresh flowers…the peonies were awesome.

Absolutely love the envelope liners! I love to add a special touch when I send letters in the mail. I’ve been a bit behind on the Valentine’s Day front. I have no idea what to get my hubby!

Totally know how you feel about being behind on V-Day stuff Kimberly. 🙂

All such great ideas and those boob macarons are hilarious 🙂

Totally agree with you on the boob macarons, Pauline. Ashley is a funny lady…and she loves macarons – perfect match!

Yes, my sweet husband and I celebrate Valentine’s, but we keep it low key. A hand written Valentine note, a batch of heart shaped brownies, that sort of thing. All of your ideas are all so fun, but I have never seen cereal truffles. They are now officially on my to-do list for Valentine’s! Thanks for sharing!
