DIY Love Container For Valentine

Valentine’s Day is near, you may want to give some sweats to your loved ones, but you need a special appearance for the sweets to impress your loved ones. A handmade container will impress more than a store bought. It will not cost you a lot as my idea is recycling some used things; in this case I used Pringles can and a decorative tissue paper which I get from a party that is still clean. It’s a cute way to show your love, especially those who love saving environment. Scroll down to see how I made this Love Container for Valentine’s Day.

Things To Prepare

It’s a short list of supplies that you need to prepare. Try to replace it with something similar to my material if you don’t have the same one. Just use whatever you have in your craft stash. Let’s see what are the list supplies which used to make this DIY Love Container for Valentine :

  • Pringles can
  • Decorative tissue paper
  • Decorative paper
  • Pink jute rope
  • Rose ribbon ornaments
  • Paper glue
  • Clear glue

How To Make

To show how much we love our loved ones, . Anyway, just follow these easy steps on how to do DIY Love Container for Valentine :

1 . Make sure your Pringles can is cleaned. Wrap your Pringles can with a decorative paper. I used vertical lines with shades of pink decorative paper.

2. Cut a tissue paper on the picture that you like to use. Mine is a drawing of a Eiffel Tower in France with roses and macarons. I love it, it’s vintage and romantic.

3. Now paste the cut-tissue paper carefully to the wrapped-Pringles can. Use paper glue.

4. Then you can decorate the lid. Take some rose ribbon ornaments and paste it one by one around the Pringles lid. It goes well with the tissue paper pattern of roses.

5. Last touch is to draw or apply some glue to the side of the picture of Eiffel Tower a shape of heart. Use the pink jute rope to to make the heart. Isn’t it pretty?

I think it’s pretty enough to hold your yummy sweets and use it as a Valentine’s gift to your loved ones. A handmade gift plus sweets? That’s surely showers of love! By the way, it’s easy to make, right?

This Love Container project is my contribution to The Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop hosted by Julie with her beautiful blog Sum of Their Stories. It’s a craft challenge with a sustainable principle behind it which comes in different theme every month. This month, the theme is “LOVE” and last month was “WARM“. I love to be part of this challenge as I love to upcycle things into something new, pretty and useful.

Happiness Is Homemade – Love Is On The Way

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade 465 Love Is On The Way! Always have a difficult time choosing from all of the great posts that all of you share here on the party. I’m so glad that I get to choose during this month of love!

This Week’s Features

MaryJo over at Master”pieces” of My Life shared 5 fantastic Valentine’s decorations that can be made with moss, like this fabulous XOXO wreath. I love that all of the ideas are unique and move away from the standard red and pink of normal Valentine’s decor ideas!

If you’re creating an at home Valentine’s celebration like we are, this heart napkin fold creating by Debbee of Debbee’s Buzz would be the perfect addition to your tablescape of love!

These heart shaped rice krispie treats, shared by Lenny of Fat Dad Foodie, would be the perfect addition to your child’s classroom Valentine’s Day party. You wouldn’t even have to send an extra Valentine for each child because these cuties would be made in their very own heart shaped cookie cutter that they can take home!

I’m sure that all of our crafty friends out there have some scrap wood lying around somewhere. This DIY pallet photo holder made by Regina from Saved from Salvage would be a great way to use up some of that wood that’s just collecting dust. It’s a piece of decor that you can change up for every season and holiday with ease!

Julie over at Sum of Their Stories made this recycled heart art canvas was made with things that she found in her craft stash, and I’m sure you have everything you need to make your own already. I can just picture a large version of this as a photo backdrop for a wedding (in your wedding colors) or for parties. Wouldn’t that be cute?!

Favorite Pick!

How To Make Easy Valentine’s Treats Decoration

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? You want to have a simple celebration but enough to bring up the Love vibes? Then my Easy Valentine’s Treat Decoration will help you prepare one of the elements for Valentine’s Day. Have a cute simple treats on Valentine’s Day is forgiven, pink shades are not tacky, so combine these two things, then you’ve got yourself a valentine’s treats which able to decorate your Valentine’s Day simple celebration.

I made a very easy Valentine’s Treats Decoration from a cute Valentine’s container which made out of a Pringles can and some pink and blue marshmallows. I think marshmallows are perfect for Valentine’s Day treats beside chocolates and candies. Marshmallows are sweet, soft, yummy, come in many soft pretty colors and usually looks adorable even in just a regular marshmallow form. Don’t you agree?

Things To Prepare

Like always, I use things that I can find on my craft supplies and always try to repurpose or recycling things. I don’t intentionally buy new supplies unless it’s an essential part of my project that I don’t have. Let’s see what are the list supplies which were used to make this Easy Valentine’s Day Treats Decoration :

  • Small Pringles can
  • Decorative paper wrap (mine is with heart pattern)
  • Pink ribbon
  • Clear glue and paper glue
  • Pink paper straw
  • Marshmallows in white and pink

How To Make

An adorable Valentine’s container with marshmallows is super easy to make and serve. The Valentine’s treats can be a decoration element as well. Anyway, just follow these easy steps on how to make Easy Valentine’s Treats Decoration :

1 . Prepare a small Pringles can or any other similar can. Make sure it’s cleaned.

2. Cut the decorative paper wrapper to the size of the can and then glue it to wrap the Pringles can.

3. Next is to paste a small pink ribbon around the top and bottom of the Pringles holder with clear glue. Your Valentine’s Treats holder is done!

4. Now, take some pink and white marshmallow and thrust it one by one to each pink straw.

5. Lastly, arrange all of those pink and white marshmallows on straw in the Valentine’s holder. Super cute for Valentine’s treats decoration isn’t it?

This easy Valentine’s Treats is great for Valentine’s Day decoration. It can be one of a great Valentine’s treats decoration on the Valentine’s treat station in your home. Mixed it with other treats or maybe even make more of this Valentine’s treats and put it along your Valentine’s tablescape as a center piece. Be creative with it.

Red Velvet Waffles

Red Velvet waffles on a white plate

Our Tiny Nest was truly inspired this week. Taking a Red Velvet craving and turning it into a very tasty Valentines Day Breakfast treat.  “with Valentine’s Day approaching, I was in the mood to bake something red velvet inspired. These red velvet waffles are so indulgent and are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or anytime you just want to spoil yourself or someone you love. The best part, they are made with red velvet cake mix and topped with a homemade cream cheese whipped topping you can prepare ahead of time.”

Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil

Giving a handmade Valentine’s card for your loved ones will leave a special meaning. You can craft a Valentine’s card or draw your Valentine’s card. This time I’m going to share an idea of an Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil. Yes, You will only need to use a pink colored pencil to draw your own Valentine’s card. It’s easy and quick to do, and of course it looks super sweet for Valentine’s Day. Let me show you how I draw my Valentine’s card step by step.

Things To Prepare

Super short list of supplies for this Valentine’s card, and your main tool is your hand. Let’s see what are the list supplies which were used to make this Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil :

  • A drawing paper (I used B5 paper size)
  • Pink colored pencil
  • Black drawing pen

How To Make

To show how much I love my loved ones, I drew lots of hearts. It’s easy and will take less than an hour to draw even for those who doesn’t used to draw. Anyway, just follow these easy steps on how to draw an Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil :

1 . Fold your drawing paper into two, neatly.

2. Now, draw a frame with one line by using pink colored pencil. It doesn’t have to be very straight lines, it can be a little bit shaky lines.

3. Next is to draw many hearts in a different sizes and orientation. Some are big, small, medium, or tiny. Some are facing left, some are to the right and some just straight. I was starting with drawing a big hearts first then follow by smaller and smaller hearts.

4. It’s time to color it. Start to color some hearts in darkest pink. Press your pink colored pencil while coloring to get a darker pink. Try to scatter the colored hearts.

5. Repeat it to some other hearts, but this time, loose your pressure to the colored pencil to have a lighter color than before.

6. Do it again with even lighter pink, so you will get 3 shades of pink; dark pink, medium pink and light pink.

7. Your hearts coloring is finished, so now take your black drawing pen and write “/lav/” which is how to pronounce “love”. And on the inside, write down “That’s how you say it”. Finished!

I think is super cute and you can make more of this Valentine’s card easily. You can change the pink color with other favorite color of your loved ones, like maybe red, purple or even blue. Well, but if you want to stick to the traditional Valentine’s color, then use a pink colored pencil.
