What is it about pom poms that makes us want to stand up and give a big cheer? Is it the past cheerleader in us, or just the fact that they are so darn cute? I created pom poms using a fun new tool and strung them for my Valentines mantle.

I can already tell that 2017 is going to fly by based on the way things are going. As we quickly go through the year, it’s so important to keep an eye on our goals for the year… in other words, have you already broken your New Years resolutions!? Haha. One of my goals is to do some decluttering and organizing. I found some great organization tools on Etsy that I share with you a couple weeks ago. I was so excited when I got the opportunity to participate in this super fun challenge with a great group of bloggers to destash my craft room! We were all asked to some a DIY using just items in our craft closet. I totally jumped with joy at the opportunity to go through some of my scrapbooking supplies that are just almost overflowing out of my scrap box. I chose to create a cardboard roll mini album. I took a simple cardboard roll and turned it into a vintage-inspired mini album with a special Valentine’s Day theme – 10 Things I Love About You.
I recently did several Valentines centerpiece tutorials. The bubble gum jar arrangement is my favorite . I love how the bubblegum turned this plain glass bowl into a jar of happiness.
Creating your own fresh flower centerpieces are easier than you think. Many grocery stores have all the flowers you need to create a stunning arrangement in your home. I put together a few of my own and have broke it down into steps so you can make them too.
With Valentine's day around the corner we needed to come up with a unique way to make some place card holders. I don't know about you but January is always a rough month. Money is tight and it just seems like it's the longest month ever. I had to dig really deep into our craft cupboard to make these little heart topiaries. Can you guess what they're made from?
Valentine’s Day is quickly coming to you. Valentine’s Day is a day, where you want to show the special person in your life appreciation.
Giving someone a gift on Valentines Day shows that you care. Fellas, I am going to give you some advice. I don’t care, if your girl says “Valentines Day is dumb, I don’t need anything just your love”, I am calling BS. As much as we don’t care, we do! Get your girl a token of appreciation, it will get you far. The gift doesn’t have to cost a lot but we want to know that you care, even a letter is good. We just want you to put some thought into us. No email, not just a text message because that has no effort, you do that everyday, we just want effort! Now with that said, If you want to give a gift, then you are in luck because I have three Valentines Day gift ideas, that anyone would love to receive.
Here is an overview of the project. First, make a colored cement shape by adding latex paint to the cement batch and shape the cement as if it is clay. Then plop the colored shape in an oiled round cake pan, and shape it a bit more. Finally, fill in the rest of the mold with uncolored cement. The fill cement can be colored if you want, but I left mine uncolored. I have made many colored cement projects (see project gallery at http://diyfurniturestudio.com/gallery/), but this is the first using this technique.
Here is a cute valentine's day decoration idea. It's a very easy recycled project. Don't hesitate to get your kids involved, they gonna love it! You will need plastic bottles, a sharpie, some thread and small dowels.

Thinking of a different approach to the more traditional colors of Valentines? Forget the reds and pinks! Surprise yourself and make something new and refreshing that will still provide the loving and enticing atmosphere of Valentine's Day! Think metallics!

And this heart is so easy to make, you probably already have the materials on hand. Metallic gift wrapping paper - 13ft Thick wire (craft 12 gauge aluminum) or a wire coat hanger Wire cutter Scissors Skewer stick Tacky glue Clamp
Valentine's Day a made up holiday to enrich the card company? No way! Any excuse to celebrate and I think it's a good day. We love Valentine's Day around here, but that doesn't mean we spend a ton of money on singing bears, chocolates, and flowers. We diy!
This year, I'm giving the gift of relaxation. We can all use a little of that don't you think? With the help of my sweet girl we got these luxurious bath bombs done in 20 minutes.
My local supermarket is offering $5.00 off a dozen roses for Valentines, and I thought "Go for it!" and then with my next breath I said: "make your own darn flowers." For years now, I have been dabbling in the world of paper flowers. I wanted to share my now "obsession" with creating paper flowers with my HOMETALK friends; AND I wanted to do something with a vintage vibe. So I took an old yellowing paperback and got to it.
I found some adorable tin lanterns for sale online and knew I had to create a Valentine version. This easy DIY uses upcycled materials and can be completed in less than an hour!
I have a bunch of dollar store glass gems and wanted to use them. I also wanted to make a valentine gift for each of my kids. This project was easy and fun. You could even let kids make the design of their choice and depending on their age help glue on the glass gems. You can see more of my crazy creations here
