Let’s talk about what Valentine’s day is really good for — eating sweets all day and being transported back to your grade school classroom, where you were armed with Elmer’s glue and construction paper. We fully applaud this nostalgic behavior — but If you want to step up your Valentine’s Day crafting game this year, here are some of our favorite DIY projects from around the web.
Here’s a project you can do any day of the year — add a heart to any photo and suddenly it’s just right for Valentine’s Day. Print out your favorite Instagram shots and hang this in your house for a fun surprise for your valentine. Check out the full how-to over on A Lion’s Nest.
This project from Squirrelly Minds combines three things we love — donuts, glitter, and hot glue guns. These skewers would be perfect for a Valentine-themed party or to leave as a sweet treat on your favorite co-worker’s desk.
No glitter, no pink, no hearts — this clever idea from See Kate Sew is the perfect way to show your admiration without getting overly sentimental and sappy.
