The Best DIY Valentines!

share this:


For some reason, I have always liked Valentines Day.  While I can definitely see the perspective of those who think it’s a ridiculous commercial holiday, I still think there is something very sweet about it.  First of all, I love the color red so I think the decorations are pretty!  Secondly, I kind of like the idea of a day dedicated to telling people how much you love and appreciate them.  To be honest, these days I can’t think of a better holiday for people to celebrate…especially kids!  So this year I’m every excited to be making valentines for my son to hand out to his friends at school.  Here are some of my top picks for DIY valentines:

How adorable is this bubble card idea from The Mother Huddle

Do you have a little one that loves bugs?  If so, these love bug valentines from LilSugar would be ideal!

I love this guitar valentine kit from Paper Source.  They have a ton of other kits to choose from as well.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on Valentines.  Just look around your house!  Inhabitots have some great ideas for homemade Valentines like making heart stamps from potatoes!

Dagmar Bleasdale has a ton of great DIY Valentine ideas, but my favorite is her idea for using broken crayons to make pretty crayon hearts!
