Gold Heart Mugs

In preparation for the day of love, Lidy from Hello Lidy had a little fun recreating some heart mugs she spied at West Elm that were “modern, fun and playful.” Following in line with the year’s metallic trend, Lidy used a gold leaf pen to add her hearts to plain white mugs for a quick transformation. This is a project anyone can tackle, and Lidy points out that imperfection is just part of the beauty.

“Every Day I Love You” Word Art

EVERY-DAY-I-LOVE-YOU-1

After his wife fell in love with a pricey art print, Matt of theDIYvillage set out to create an affordable knock-off of this beautiful wall art for her as a Valentine’s Day Gift. He did it for only $11 using some pine boards and Luan. How’s that for affordable? Matt’s knock-off is so spot-on his wife thought it was the original when he gave it to her!

Valentine’s Pallet Art

As shared on Infarrantly Creative, I gave my own little nod to Valentine’s Day by creating a piece of wall décor appropriate for the holiday but also versatile enough to claim a permanent home on my wall. I love the combination of the rustic pallet wood look and bright yellow ruffles. It’s completely unexpected and makes me smile every time I see it!

Valentine’s Candle Holders

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative, you know I have been engrossed in my biggest DIY project ever (aka my new and absolutely fabulous craft studio) and have had little time for Valentine’s crafting. That’s left me on the lookout for short and sweet projects like these “LOVE” votive holders made by Jeanine at Okio B Designs. All Jeanine had to do was print out her lettering on label paper and then stick it on the glass. That I have time for!

Valentine’s Envelope Chair Backer

I made my kids chair backers for Halloween last year and they absolutely loved the thrill of finding treats inside each morning. Carrie from Simply Home shares how she created these adorable felt chair backers for Valentine’s Day with a few basic supplies. While the detail work may be a bit time consuming, you can save some serious dough by making these yourself. Carrie spent only $20 for four chair backers as opposed to paying $27 a piece with monogram!

Robyn of The Pink Peony of Le Jardin was fueled by her love for Ballard’s monogram art to create a canvas that’s perfect for displaying in a Valentine vignette. The weathered black and cream finish coordinates beautifully with any color scheme and offers an alternative to typical Valentine’s colors.

I always know Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict won’t let me down when it comes to creating fabulous DIY pillows on a dime. The girl has out-pillowed even me! In preparation for Valentine’s Day, Debbie created this French telegram pillow using an iron-on transfer.  With tons of texture, Debbie’s pillow far surpasses her inspiration in my book!

Yesterday I shared a wooden “LOVE” sign to get your sweet and sappy Valentine’s creative juices flowing. Anna from My Life and Kids turned to her tried-and-true scrapbook paper and Mod Podge technique to create a wall canvas with a similar design. The piece of art found a permanent home in her baby’s nursery but would also make great holiday décor.
