{Take Two} Simple Valentine DIY's

Since this week is all about Valentine's Day {which I can't believe is on the horizon already},  I'm showing off two of my favorite crafts to do for the month of love.  I did both of these last year, but think they're too darn cute not to share again, in case some of you missed them. So, here I am with two simple Valentine DIY's.

One of my New Year's goals was to write more hand written notes and send more packages, so this first craft is a great way to check that goal off the list.  By using colorful ribbon, paper, little gift tags and writing thoughtful notes to friends, you're sending a little bit of love right to your friend's doorsteps.





Next up is one of my favorite DIY's to date.  Using pink, red, and purple tissue paper, I cut out hearts and glued them onto a mason jar I had laying around.  When lit, this really gives off a beautiful glow!

Best part about both of these projects is they cost almost nothing, because chances are you can find most of the materials around your house or in your craft drawer closet.  Are you doing anything sweet for the month of February? Leave links to your Valentine DIY's in the comments!

Happy Tuesday!
