It’s February, which means if you’re like many of us on the Girls Crochet Headbands team, your kids are already flipping-out-excited about their school Valentine’s parties. It’s a yearly rite of passage that’s filled with excitement, treats, and usually a hefty amount of glitter. But what’s even more exciting than a sparkling heart-shaped lollipop? Having a one-of-a-kind Valentine to pass out to your friends, of course! To help you make sure your kiddo’s Valentine greetings capture everyone’s hearts, we’ve scoured Pinterest to find the best DIY Valentines around. As a bonus, we’ve made sure they’re easy enough that you won’t be up all night on February 13th putting them together. You’re welcome!
Sip, Sip, Hooray! It’s Valentine’s Day!
We pinned this awesome printable Valentine (pictured above) from the very crafty Plucky Momo. She designed this adorable printable template and you can download it for free (isn’t that a Valentine’s treat?!). Simply punch a couple of holes in each card and slip it over a crazy straw for a Valentine that’s adorable, inexpensive and functional, too!
OK, this “Smartie” pants free printable Valentine from Tip Junkie? Might just be our favorite! (Ahem, and that would have nothing to do with the fact that Smarties are deeeelicious. FYI.) This precious printable comes in two versions, a flat one that you can tape a roll of Smarties to, or a 3-D one (which takes a bit longer to assemble) that allows you to slip some Smarties in those pants pockets! Either way, this is a Valentine that shows your kiddo has one smart mama!
Can we just say that we HEART bloggers who are so sweet and generous with their creativity? Here’s yet another free printable we pinned from blogger Kylie at Kommunicated. Just cut out the Valentines, poke a couple of holes in this cute design and thread a glow stick through the label. Kids love glow sticks and this is a Valentine that will be the light of the class party!
Are you ready to get DIY-ing? Which Valentine does your kiddo have her heart set on? Do you have any great DIY ideas of your own? We’d love to hear about them in the comments!
