favourite things of the week! special valentine edition

Valentine’s Day is just around the cor­ner. I’ve always seen this hol­i­day as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to tell those around me how spe­cial they are to me and how much I love them. So I thought it would be fun to round up some quick craft projects for any­one who’s look­ing for last min­ute gifts or dec­o­ra­tions to make this week­end :D And, of course, involv­ing mate­ri­als one can usu­al­ly find around the house.

Water­colour win­dow hang­ings! All you need is some cof­fee fil­ter, wash­able mark­ers and spritz of water. How fun! Use them to make bou­quets of flow­ers too!

A clev­er, quick, and easy print­mak­ing tech­nique involv­ing mask­ing tape, paint and Q-tips.

Cold days in Feb­ru­ary are per­fect for the­se love­ly ice sun catch­ers. Great if one has a col­lec­tion of pressed leaves from the fall!

From Twig and Toad­stool.

 

The­se are so amaz­ing­ly sim­ple to make and so fash­ion­able-look­ing. Not some­thing I have around the house, but I recall see­ing the­se rose cabo­chon at my favourite bead store — will have to make a trip there soon!

From The Craft Nest.

 

Now rick racks might be eas­ier to find in craft draw­ers.

See how to turn rick racks to ros­es on Maize in Mon­tana.

 

Very, very sim­ple heart gar­lands, your choice of paper or felt.

From Craftzine.

 

And of course, a cro­chet heart! I’m going to make one of the­se to wear as a pin on the week­end :D

Last but not least, some red vel­vet pan­cakes to start the day, any­one?

Have a love­ly week­end every­one!
