DIY To Try: Valentine's Day

Although the Christmas holiday is behind us, the financial repercussions of all that shopping often seem to last well into the new year. Instead of adding to the stress when brainstorming gift ideas this Valentine’s Day, celebrate the love (for your hubby, your sister, or for yourself!) by relying on simple expressions. To help narrow down your to-do list, we’re sharing five short and sweet DIY ideas that will show you care.

  • This easy-to-make DIY heart garland is the perfect seasonal decoration for this month’s love-filled holiday. Don’t own a sewing machine? Try using twine and a hot glue gun instead! (image)

  • Even if you and your Valentine have agreed not to buy each other anything this year, a handful of homemade heart-shaped confetti is hardly breaking the rules. Plus, it’s a super sweet tabletop accessory for a special meal at home! (image)

  • This V-day treat packs double the sweetness—a sugary, frosted cupcake topped with a sentimental reminder that he’s irrevocably captured your attention. (image)

  • This set of DIY beeswax candle matchsticks is a simple way to show your honey that life simply wouldn’t be as bright without him! (image)

  • Sometimes you don’t even have to spend a dime to show you care. Before handing over his favorite cup of joe, wrap it in this free downloadable wrapper. You’re sure to glimpse that smile you love so much. (image)
