Valentine’s Day is next week and if you’re still scrambling for sweet ways to celebrate the day, we’ve got a Pinterest board full of great ideas! If you’re short on time, here are a few of our favourites to inspire you:
Are you scrambling at the last minute to make cards for your child’s class, or perhaps need a card with just the right sentiment for someone special in your life?
These adorable Penguins by Housing a Forest are perfect for kids, just grab some construction paper and clear your afternoon to assemble! For party invites or a special card for your sweetie, we love these Hand Hold Heart Pop Up Valentine’s from The House that Lars Built. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out these crazy cool cards with clip-art and pop up templates (via Martha Stewart).
Don’t forget the decorations! We adore this Valentine’s Day Heart Cards Garland by Happiness is Homemade.
Say it with Sweets
Nothing says love better than making delicious sweets for your sweetie! These Valentine’s Marshmallow Pops from Glorious Treats look mouthwatering. If you’re baking with little ones, try these Heart Shaped Peanut Butter Cookies from The Semisweet Sisters – no rolling pin or cookie cutters required! Short on time? Check out these Conversation Heart Pretzel Bites by Two Sisters – a quick zap in the microwave and you’re ready to roll. Add a cute touch to prepackaged candy with these adorable Hershey’s Kisses Mice by Practically Functional.
It’s not too late to whip up something crafty for yourself or someone special, even if you don’t knit or crochet! Here’s a simple idea virtually anyone can do: pick up a few letters at your local craft store and cover them in yarn (use a hot glue gun to secure the ends!). If you crochet, grab your hook and get going on this Valentine’s Day Mug Cozy by Rebecca Langford, warming your sweetie’s heart and his or her mug. If you have time and knitting needles, whip up a few Valentine’s Pouches from Lion Brand to hold sweets, treats and lovely cards. And if your love transcends the zombie apocalypse, try your hand at Voodoo You Love Me? By Susan Claudino.
We hope you feel inspired to craft a few sweet treats for Valentine’s Day. From all of us at Eucalan to all of you, we wish you a day of love and fun!
