Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away. It’s a great time for a fun DIY! Here are Pinterest props I’ve been drooling over - including their How-To links!
Make it as big or as small as you want, this DIY String Heart would look great in any Valentine’s Day window display or vignette. Play around with colours and materials. Tailor it to your own needs.
Simple. Light weight. Versatile.
Suspend it in just about any display. Use either a low temperature glue gun or pins to be able to change out the flowers if you ever tire of them.
My tips: Cover the foam heart in fabric to add a bit of visual lust from the side.
Want a full window display? Make a few of these gorgeous Hanging Flower Hearts to fully accent your store’s windows.
Imagine a bunch of these garlands strung up around mannequins in a Valentine’s Day window display! :)
Make a couple extra to decorate the cash desk, bringing the love inside and tying it all together.
My tips: Check your local craft store, as the link to their felt balls seems to be broken.
Want to add a bit of flair? Consider using a different material – perhaps some cute craft pompoms!
Versatile and reusable, this heart made with chicken wire on a frame is your answer to different window displays throughout the year.
My Tip: Make a frame with mitered corner joints for a more polished look.
I love a nice, full backdrop, and this one is super fun!
It’s been floating around Pinterest for a few years now - it gives you big bang for your buck. The fringe could be prepared at home to save some time.
In need of a quick decoration? This one’s a classic. Use these paper heart chains as an accent or fill a window with them.
My Tips: Use coloured staples to blend in with the paper. Also, use a variety of colours - or take it up a notch with pretty scrapbooking paper. The possibilities are endless!
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, Valentine’s Day is a winter celebration, so twigs are appropriate!
This simple DIY can be done on any scale. For a full-sized window display with mannequins, consider using dry brush, curly willow, or tall twigs - from a local hardware or craft store - and an oversized vase.
Okay, I know... We’re all getting tired of paper flowers, but this paper rose flower had to be included in my list.
It’s very well done, provides great instructions, with a professional finish. For Valentine’s Day, I think it’s okay to do one more paper flower craft.
