DIY Valentine’s Gifts

DIY sharpie mug

So originally I planned to write about great products I’ve found for Valentine’s Day.  Honestly I’ve fallen more in love with the handmade crafts.  Since my husband will be out of town until dinner on the 14th, I have plenty of time to make something instead!

Today I’m sharing my favorite DIY’s I’ve found and one by me!  I’ve already gone to Michaels and picked up a ton of things (like glitter!) to make our home bright with pink & red.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites

These red velvet cheesecake bites look so good! I’m sure any valentine would love this treat via The Novice Chef.

LOVE yarn letters

L-O-V-E yarn letters!  It looks pretty easy too.  Michaels has block letters and the yarn via My Sister’s Suitcase.

giant valentine posters

I love Oh Happy Day’s free download for giant Valentine signs that you can print at Kinkos or any other copier.

pink heart milk ice cubes

How adorable! Heart shaped ice cubes for you milk via A Subtle Revelry. 

gold hearts dice

How fun would it be to play a game after a romantic dinner with these dice via Design Sponge.

DIY heart mug

I made a really cute Valentine’s mug with just two materials! A mug and a oil-based sharpie! Target has a whole collection of bi-color mugs that are perfect for DIY.  Total cost under $10 and half of that was the cost of the sharpies!  Once you have the sharpies it’s under $5 and it’s super easy.

  • These are so cool! I love your idea of writing on the coffee mug. I’ve been thinking about doing that, but I haven’t gotten around to getting a white one to work with yet!

  • It’s so easy! I still need to put mine in the oven to bake for few minutes so it doesn’t wash off
