Although we are not really doing anything special this year, i thought i'd share a few lovely ideas with you. I have a little DIY to share that will literally take only 10 minutes! Also, someone was kind enought to let me know that my old 'Happy Thoughts' journal was being shared on Tip Junkie as a cute little Valentines idea. You can see it here.
If you want a few party ideas, my dear friend and i styled this simple little last-minute party for the kiddies last Valentines Day. And here and here are a few more ideas for Valentines that i posted last year over at RubyJu!
Anywho....heres my super simple DIY Valentine!
What you need....
Paper cups ( I saved my takeaway coffee cups and re-used them)
a few small pebbles or rocks
a few small chilli plants
paper or mini tags
pens, scissors and cute tape
Sharpie pen (any colour)
1. Start by grabbing your sharpie pen and writing a love message onto your cup. I just wrote staight onto the cup with my pen, but i know not everyone can do this. So you could always draw it in pencil first ( so you can erase your mistakes), or print a message onto paper and use cute tape to stick it onto the cup.
4. Pot your Chilli plants into the cups, being careful not to spill to much dirt as you don't wantr to dirty up your message . Unless of course, your message is meant to be 'dirty' ;)
5. If you have pre-made tags then go ahead and write your message on them . On the back of my tags i also wrote a message to please re-pot the Chilli as soon as possible ( as they wont live forever in a paper cup).
And there you have it.... a really easy DIY and makes a sweet (or in this case , spicy) little gift for someone special.
ps. if you do make this, please share a link in my comments, i would love to see!
