5 Last Minute Valentine’s Day DIY Crafts For Your Home

by ·

If you're anything like me, you are patting yourself on the back for putting away the Christmas decorations and haven't even noticed the calendar quietly flip to February. Well, wake up! Valentine's day is here! Thankfully, Valentine's day is also one of the easiest holidays to decorate for. Just add in a touch of pink and a dash of red and of course, loads of hearts, and you are all set. Easy squeezy!

I've selected some easy do it yourself projects that will help you do just that. I'm sure even those without a predilection for DIYs will get along just great and your schedule won't be affected too much. They should take less than an hour (and some even 5 minutes!) and will be the perfect accessory for a romantic night, a good time with a bunch of girlfriends, or activities with your enthusiastic kiddos.
