fun homemade valentine’s day ideas

Here’s a roundup of all kinds of Valentine fun, in case you’re in the mood to be a little crafty.

The step-by-step tutorial for this homemade felt heart brooch from Dabbled are easy enough for a beginner to follow. Cute right?

Remember this heart braid from last year? I’ll attempt it again with Precocious next week. I swear.

What about this great heart pillow made out of buttons? Totally doable.

This heart pudding pie from Make and Takes looks delicious and adorable, a winning combination no?

Um, molten Chocolate cakes from This Week for Dinner? Yes please.

What are you making at your house this week for Valentine’s Day? I just found out I’m in charge of games for Precocious’ classroom on Friday.


Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller, Bueller?
