DIY: Easy and Cute Heart Bracelet

This little project is super easy and super cute. It’d be a great last-minute gift idea for Valentine’s Day. Not that you shouldn’t prepare earlier for this occasion, but life gets in the way sometimes. The idea comes from the Minted Strawberry blog.

All you need is a chain, some rubber tiles spacers(yes, you’ve read that right :)), a 5/64″ or a 3/32″ drill, and some paint or nail polish. If your other half likes some bling, you could glue some gemstones, Swarovski crystals on top or use glitter to make it sparkle.

The full tutorial can be found here, but the idea is pretty simple. Cut the rubber tile spacer(s) in a way to form a heart shape.

You can sand the edges a bit to smooth them out. Then drill a hole in each of the heart “wings” using the small drill. And that’s it!

Now you go and paint it to your liking using nail polish or glitter paint and attach a chain to each hole. You could go wild and make a bracelet with more than one heart and chain in between. 

If you want to add some gems, I’d use a glue gun to make it secure.

DIY Concrete Love Hearts Necklace

This is another simple yet awesome project for your Valentine. The process is easy to follow, and you’ll be able to create awesome, personal concrete jewelry in about 24 hours.

Materials needed:

First, you need to mix the concrete powder with water in a plastic(or, I prefer, ceramic) container. If you use a ceramic dish, don’t forget to wash it straight away after use, or you’ll end up with a concrete blob that is hard to remove.

Next, rub a little bit of Vaseline into the gemstone mold. Add some sparkles at the bottom if you like tiny gemstones or glitter. Or just leave it plain and paint it later.

Let it dry in a warm place for over 12 to 24 hours, and then carefully remove it from the mold. Attach a bail to the back with a glue gun(or any strong glue that will stick to concrete and metal). In this case, the bail is made out of cord end.

Wait for the glue to dry, and then attach a jump ring and chain, and voila! You’ve just created a super cute necklace for your loved one 🙂 More images and instructions at Fall For DIY.

Canvas Photo Collage

I bet you’ve got tonnes of photos and not enough wall space to put them on. If so, creating a collage can definitely help. 🙂 This gift idea is something you can both enjoy, is pretty simple to make, and doesn’t require many resources. 

Of course, you can order one, but what’s the fun in that?

There are several simple steps to create this. Print the photos. Apply gel medium to the canvas. Place the pictures face down on the canvas making sure to get rid of any air bubbles. Let it dry overnight. Once dried, wet the paper with water using a spray bottle.

When completely wet, rub the paper off using your fingers, and the image will reveal. Seal with another layer of gel medium. All done! Now you have a beautiful piece you can hang, showing your precious moments together.

For full step-by-step instructions, check my article about transferring images to canvas.

You‘ll find the above example in A Beautiful Mess blog.

Homemade Bath Bombs

Treat your loved one to a luxurious, blissful bath full of relaxing scents and babbles. This recipe uses a Love Potion essential oil(basically jasmine and sandalwood), but you can use any essential oils you like.

I personally love sweet orange. This recipe comes from Atta Girl Says blog.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Baking soda
  • Citric Acid
  • Fine Epsom Salts
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Love Potion Essential Oil or any other oil
  • Red food coloring
  • Witch hazel
  • Mesh strainer
  • Spray bottle
  • Silicone heart mold
  • Plastic/rubber gloves


  1. Sift baking soda, Epsom salts, and citric acid through a mesh strainer to get rid of any lumps. If unable to find fine Epsom salt, just put it through a blender or coffee grinder. Mix them well.
  2. Slowly add ½ T of jojoba oil, 10 drops of essential oils, and 1-2 drops of food coloring.
  3. Wearing a rubber glove, mix it all until well blended and the dry mix is nice and pink.
  4. Now add witch hazel to the mixture one spritz at a time until it holds together when squeezed. The mixture shouldn’t be crumbly. You’ll need 8-10 spritzes to achieve the right consistency. Just mind to make it too wet; otherwise, it will start to fizz, and the bath bomb will fail.
  5. Pack the mixture in any kind of mold, like heart-shaped for Valentine! Make sure you fit/put in as much mixture as possible. This recipe should yield you 5-6 bath bombs, but this also depends on the size of the mold.
  6. Let it dry for several hours, ideally overnight. Bath bombs should be very hard.
  7. Lastly, pack them in plastic wrappers or an airtight container and keep them in a dry, cool place,, away from any moisture.

Just print them and wrap them around their favorite bar. Easy and cute. The idea comes from Oleander and Palm blog and the printables you can find here.

DIY Bathtub Tray

This idea requires a little bit more knowledge about DIY in general, but it’s pretty simple to make. All you need is: 


  • 1 – 1×10(or12) for the tray cut to the size of your bathtub
  • 1 – 1×2 for the phone backrest
  • 1-  2×2 for the legs
  • Stain & Acrylic Paint
  • Wood Glue 
  • Stencil
  • 2″ Brad Nails


  • A Miter Saw or circular saw, or even jigsaw will do if you have a steady hand.
  • Brad Nailer

  • Jigsaw
  • Plunge Router
  • RO Sander or sanding block

And follow the video instructions below.

Pop-Up Photo Box

This is another cute idea to print and use these adorable photos of the two of you stored on your phone.

The idea is pretty simple. You paint or stain a wooden box. You can even carve out/burn out your initials on the lid or simply decoupage.

Paint inside your preferred color. Cut a strip of the thick paper sheet to match the width of the box. Fold the strip in an accordion that fits inside the box. Attach the photos to it using double-sided tape.

You can tape together several strips to fit more photos! To finish off, attach a ribbon to the top of the strip so you can easily pull the images out of the box.

Glue the strip to the bottom of the box, and your gift is ready. For more detailed instructions, visit Brit+Co.

Photo Frame with Charms

I love this idea. It’s easy, cute, and includes jewelry 🙂 I’m sure your other half will love it. It comes from the Sweet Little BlueBird blog. All you need is a frame, some scrapbook paper, silver jewelry string, and heart charms.

You can use a key instead of the hearts as well, like a “key to my heart” thing.

The steps are as follows:

Remove the glass from the frame. Use scrapbook paper for the background(or you can use fabric as well). For the charms, use the string and twist it like in the photo above.

Place them on the main string and twist them again. Tuck the ends of the string under the frame and secure it with a glue gun. And that’s it! Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
