Valentine's Day DIYs

I will be the first to admit that I’m not totally into Valentine’s Day. The only reason I get excited over the holiday is to buy the discounted chocolate on the 15th. I don’t totally hate it like some people do, because it can definitely be fun and there are some fun parts to it like stuffing your face with chocolate, telling people how much you love them (but that should be done everyday) and the amazing crafts that you can do. 


    Pinterest is any Valentine’s Day lover’s heaven, filled with everything from recipes and gift ideas to crafts for kids and adults. Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorites, but there are so much more that are so amazing, even I’m starting to get excited for Tuesday! Click on the recipe name to view!


ONE// Valentine’s Day Pancakes

    If you have a little extra time on Tuesday morning, what better way to start your day than with some Valentine’s Day pancakes?! You could even have them for dinner because who doesn’t love a night where you have breakfast for dinner? As a breakfast food lover (like, Leslie Knope status), I was immediately drawn to these fun sprinkle-filled pancakes. You can make a small batch if it’s just you and your significant other, or a bigger batch if you have a family or want to treat your friends.


TWO//Gluten-Free Red Velvet Cupcakes

    All you gluten-free gals out there: this one is for you! Instead of flour, this recipe calls for coconut flour in a delicious red velvet cupcake recipe because there is no better time for red than Valentine’s Day!


THREE//Valentine’s Day Themed Popcorn

    I feel like Olivia Pope would love this idea. This is probably the recipe that I am going to try out since I don’t have any plans to leave my house at night on Valentine’s Day. This is perfect to sit back with your best friends or pet and and just enjoy catching up on your favorite YouTubers or TV shows.


FOUR//Heart Chain

    One of the clubs that I’m in at my college actually did this at our first meeting this week! We each got a slip of paper and wrote a positive message on it. Then we formed them into hearts and stapled them together to form a chain of hearts and positive messages. This is fun to do if you’re a club leader/president or if you’re an elementary school teacher!


FIVE//Mason Jar Decorating

    Who doesn’t love a good ole’ Mason Jar DIY?! This one is super cute and definitely something that I may get the supplies for to make on Tuesday!


No matter how you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, just remember that you are loved and not having a significant other doesn’t take away from that!
