Instant-Pinspiration: DIY V-Day gifties


 
Don’t wanna dish out the usual paper valentines, and too short on cash to spend a fortune? We’re right with ya. DIY gifts are thoughtful, creative and one-of-a-kind. Here are three gifts you can make for all the besties, guys and fam in your life without breaking the bank.

 

For your main girls: Fortune cookie valentines

What you’ll need:

Pink and red felt

Thin wire

Ribbon

Scissors

Glue

 

What you’ll do:

Cut out felt circles to be 4 ½ inches in diameter. Line the thin wire down the middle, cover with pretty pink ribbon and glue in place. Let the glue dry for a bit, then fold the circle in half so the ribbon is on the inside. Bend corners closer together to form a fortune cookie (The wire makes it bendable!) Then write a sweet message and slip the paper fortune through. Voila, you’ve got ah-dorable Valentine’s Day fortunes for all your BFFs!

 

For the BGFs: Bow ties we heart
 
You’ll have your guys looking dapper in these adorable homemade gifts.

What you’ll need:

A 10” square piece of V-Day fabric

Bowtie clip

Needle and thread

Scissors

 

What you’ll do:

Cut a 9x4.5” piece of fabric. Fold the long edges of the fabric toward the center of the back and then fold the outer open ends to the middle too (just like wrapping a present). Pinch the center together and wrap it in a much thinner piece of fabric to hold it all together. Stitch a bowtie clip on the backside for easy application, and you’re good as gold. Your fashionable boys will have one-of-a-kind ties pronto.

 

For the Fam: Rose wreath
 
Christmas door décor is so two months ago. Show the fam some love with a romantic homemade wreath.

What you’ll need:

Foam circle wreath from the floral section of your craft store

Craft or fabric paint in pink or red

Red or pink felt

Scissors

Hot glue or straight pins

 

What you’ll do:

Paint the foam circle pink or red and then hot glue or pin felt roses all over the surface. How to make the cute roses? Just cut out squares of felt in V-Day colors. Cut into the squares to form a spiral, then wrap the felt around itself starting from the center. Felt sticks to itself, so ya don’t even need to glue each rose together! Easy enough and def something the whole fam will heart ya for.
