Champagne Flute Valentine
We commence with this champagne flute valentine, which sends a festive message of really like. Here are the supplies you’ll require…
- champagne flute (plastic or glass)
- metallic shred
- a single gummy heart candy
- paper and a pen to create a particular message for your Valentine
Glitzy DIY valentine
Step 1: Select your champagne flute. I utilized a teal plastic flute that was left more than from this New Year’s Eve party photo shoot. If you’re producing a group of these specific valentines, contemplate buying a pack of plastic champagne glasses from your local celebration store. If you’re crafting only one particular or two, it might be less costly to buy person glass flutes.

Step 2: Fill the glass with metallic shred. I often have a pack of metallic shred on hand. It’s an immediate way to add glitz to a festive centerpiece or jazz up your party table. You might also determine to fill the glass with edible treats rather than metallic strips!
Step 3: Garnish the glass with a gummy heart candy. This particular touch provides your valentine a sweet treat to appreciate.

Step 4: Write a thoughtful note for your Valentine. You may possibly make a decision to attach your message to the stem of the glass with a ribbon. My favourite message for this project: “You make every day a unique occasion.”
Straightforward SHORTCUT: If a trip to the craft shop isn’t in the cards nowadays, don’t worry. You can throw this valentine together in no time! Fill your champagne flute with any festive material you have on hand, such as curled gift ribbon. No candy? “Garnish” your glass with a paper heart. If your Valentine takes place to reside in your residence, you can use a glass champagne flute from your pantry–you know it will be returned!
Valentine’s Day Arrow
I’ve been so inspired by all of the DIY valentine arrows that have hit the blogosphere this year! I’ve adapted my Valentine’s Day arrow project (shown beneath) from this remarkable DIY via Curbly.

Here are the supplies you will want:
- a bamboo skewer
- washi tape
- a single feather
- a paint pen in the color of your option
Gather your supplies
Step 1: Use a paint pen to decorate sections of your skewer. For a special touch, use far more than a single paint pen/colour.

Step 2: Use washi tape to attach your feather to a single end of the skewer. If your feather doesn’t have a prominent quill, cut away some of the feathery bulk near the bottom. A clean quill is significantly less difficult to wrap/attach to the skewer than a fuzzy one particular.

Step 3: Wrap the washi tape around the skewer in colorful sections. If you have more than one particular roll of tape, and the rolls are different widths, you can even layer the tape. A helpful hint: use a dab of glue or a swipe of the glue stick to assist safe the end of every single piece of tape–washi tape likes to unravel itself!

Step 4: Produce a heart-shaped arrowhead for the tip. Really feel totally free to use paper for your arrowhead. I actually employed washi tape! I started by doubling, then tripling the tape at the end of the skewer so it formed a flat surface (as shown under). I produced certain there was a small opening for the skewer, then removed the tape. I then cut a heart from the flattened tape and re-inserted the skewer. Once again, a dab of glue is beneficial in attaching the “arrowhead.”
Preparing the arrowhead
I’ve made several of these Valentine’s Day arrows to give as gifts this year, and the recipients loved their colorful mementos! Skewers are smaller than dowels (which are frequently employed for this project), and the outcome is a mini-arrow that tends to make a big statement.

Straightforward SHORTCUT: No skewer? Embellish a pencil. If you have a skewer or a dowel on hand, you can use markers to add colour in lieu of paint pens. No feather? Craft a single out of washi tape. No tape? Use paper to produce a feather and an arrowhead. The shortcut possibilities are endless…
Marble Heart Valentine
Our final featured DIY project celebrates the current marble revival. The look is entertaining, sleek…and a tiny bit ’80s! Right here are the supplies you will want:
- marble-patterned scrapbook or get in touch with paper
- a heart-shaped frame
- a pen or pencil for tracing
Marble glitter valentine
Step 1: Get rid of the glass, plastic or paper insert from the frame of your selection. Use it as a stencil to trace and reduce out the shape–likely a heart–onto your marble-patterned paper. Any marble-patterned paper will do. I had some leftover speak to paper from yet another DIY project, and it did the trick! The frame is from IKEA.
Step 2: Paint or dab a heart style of glue onto the paper. Sprinkle with glitter, then shake off the excess sparkles. I used ultra-fine glitter for a more defined appear.

Step 3: Wait for the glue to dry, then insert your valentine back into the frame. If the glue isn’t dry, the design will grow to be smudged.
Simple SHORTCUT: Use a piece of building paper and embellish it with a glitter heart. Framing is optional. This project is not about the exact supplies. It’s about making a glittering focal point that catches the eye!
