Valentine’s Style: Create Custom Looks with DIY Embellishments

valentine's day tutu skirtIt’s hard to believe that January is almost over—and that means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! All of us on the Girls Crochet Headbands team are big fans of Valentine’s Day because it involves two of our favorite things: chocolate and the color pink!

And no matter what your big V-Day plans entail, your little sweetheart needs a festive ensemble. We have a too-cute collection of Valentine’s Day accessories and apparel that’s as affordable as it is adorable.

Prefer a one-of-a-kind look? We recently broke out our glue guns and some basic craft supplies to add Valentine’s Day embellishments to a few of our favorite items. We thought we’d share them with you so you can create your own looks, too. Who’s ready to get crafty?

Admittedly, our twirly tutu skirts are fantastic on their own—but add a few whimsical embellishments and you’ve got a piece that’s off-the-charts cute! We found some adorable bird and sparkly pom pom embellishments at our local craft store and love the way the pink hues look against our Brown Tutu ($4.49). One tip? Before you start applying hot glue, lift up the first layer of tulle so the remaining layers don’t stick together.

Pom Pom Panache

Short on time? Don’t worry—we have the perfect project that’s done in just minutes! Fluffy, colorful pom poms make an adorable (and affordable) addition to any tutu—try pairing red pom poms with our Hot Pink Tutu ($4.49), pictured above, or white or pink pom poms with our Red Tutu ($4.49). Just add a small dab of hot glue and, voila—a fashion masterpiece!

While you’re busy glamming up a girls’ tutu skirt, why not embellish one of our chic flower hair clips, too? We found some cute felt heart pieces at our craft store and decided they’d make the perfect seasonal addition to our White Star Flower Hair Clip ($1.99). Or add a heart to a Red or Pink Gerber Daisy Flower Hair Clip ($1.99 each) and pair with a coordinating crochet or lace headband to create the perfect hair accessory for your little Cupid.

And there you have it! With a few craft supplies and the swipe of a hot glue gun, you can create your own one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day looks that your littlest Valentine will love!
