It’s February! Time to let your sappy heart-filled side out to play in the sun. I secretly love Valentine’s Day – the handmade sweet sentimental side, not the Hallmark version. So we’ve been decorating a little bit, crafting a little bit, and brainstorming several fun things to include here on the blog. I’m hoping to load everything up for you next week – so make sure to stop over for free printables, DIY ideas for your kids, and maybe even some DIY ideas for you… What’s your favorite part of Valentine’s Day?

I’m madly looking for inspiration, so this week’s links are all DIY Valentine ideas I’ve been pinning on Pinterest – enjoy!

(image above) This is what I’d like to give to my loved ones this year. Hand painted rocks. So simple and powerful. Found via pinterest.

Find these “Eye Heart You” Valentines on Etsy – 4 for $8.00! And on the inside is a surprise Cyclops. From Kraze 4 Paper.

Do you think I could convince Birdie to cut out 25 cookie cutter hearts from air dry clay? And then stamp them? Because these clay Valentine hearts are amazing. via the Sweetest Occasion.

I’ve seen several recycled crayon heart valentines before, but the details in this design are particularly lovely. via WhipperBerry.

Another popular option – download these printable Valentine fruit stickers via etsy seller Twig & Thistle for a healthy Valentine’s gift. So cute.

I think we may be attempting some painted blotto hearts with Birdie any day now. Such a fun idea, and easy to do. via The Chocolate Muffin.

What a simple little DIY Valentine’s heart bookmark for older kids to make. I wonder if Birdie could make some preschooler-friendly versions with foam hearts and craft glue? via 30 Handmade Days.

How about some Bubble Valentines? The kids would love these! via Armelle Blog.

Alright, now it’s your turn – what will you be making for Valentine’s Day?
