Valentine’s Day coming up too fast? Don’t know what to get your loved one yet?

Help is on the way — here are some super-easy Valentine’s Day DIY gift ideas.

When I started writing my Valentine’s Day decorating post I had so many options for kids that I ended up writing a post with 10 Valentine craft ideas for kids.

Here are the other DIY Valentine’s Day ideas I love and didn’t get to share yet. You can make any one of these, most just in a few minutes.

1. Why not surprise your hubby or the kids with this easy-to-make heart garland in the morning?

10. Want to dress up your kids for Valentine’s Day? This is the cutest and easiest idea for kids I’ve found: cut felt hearts to go behind kids shirt buttons.

What a great collection of simple and cute ideas for Valentines day. I have already pinned this and will be needing it over the weekend as I decorate my house. I especially love the idea of putting a garland across the headboard of the bed! Thanks for all the ideas!
