Valentine's Day Projects

I’ve found some super cute Valentine’s Projects online. They’re super easy and also very practical.


Heart Earrings

These are adorable. They cost me $5 (because I didn’t have liquid stitch) but were totally worth it – and I might make some for my sisters too! I love that you can make them out of a paperclip – something totally ordinary. Here’s the link to this project:  http://pitterandglink.blogspot.com/2012/01/paperclip-string-valentine-earrings.html




Valentine's Earrings

I actually really like these earrings. I thought they were going to be too cheesy or “handmade” looking for me, but they actually turned out really cute. They go well with an up-do or a dressy outfit. Plus, they are easy to make. I didn’t have headpins, so I used eye pins instead and it still turned out fine. I also used pink beads instead of heart beads, because I couldn’t find any small heart beads in local stores. And honestly, these are more “me” anyways. Here is the link to this project. http://oksanalikesit.blogspot.com/2012/01/diy-valentines-earrings.html

Bookmark

I made this bookmark with the free printable here, by Ella Emmett. I glued each bookmark to card stock, added a ribbon through a hole-punched hole at the top, and wrote the quote (from her website) in red on the back.


Right now I'm working on a pair of crochet amigurumi love birds... hopefully they'll be done in time for me to share them next week!
