String Words Wall-Hanging DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

“Love is in the air” literally – when you hang this cursive banner. Let someone know you love them! Using different shades of pinks and reds adds a Valentine’s flair, but you can use any colors you’d like. Wouldn’t “you are my sunshine” in golden and pale yellow yarns be so sweet in a newborn’s nursery? If you have extra sting, make additional words to decorate valentine gifts. Or write the recipient’s name for an amazing name tag! The words are easy to affix to a package with glue or washi tape. PS – How perfect would this banner look paired with this?

Valentine’s Knife + Tassel DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I ran into CB2 the other day and was stopped short by these cute little porcelain knives they carry. As I stood there, a poem my grandmother used to write me at Valentine’s Day popped into my head. Knife + poem = a sweet little valentine for less than the price of a card! Colorful mini tassels add a bit of color. Tie it all up, put it in a rigid mailer, and mail it to your valentines near and far, or hand out as favors at a Valentine’s party.

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I know there are several pretty versions of this out there, but this take on Cupid’s arrow as a cupcake topper has something special – the tip of the arrow is actually an edible candy heart. Which means, more sweets for your sweethearts!
