Project Valentine

I’ve been seeing lots of great valentine projects and ideas floating around the blog world over the past couple weeks. Here’s a roundup of a few of our favorite lovey-dovey DIY ideas.

It’s a box of candy – made of cake! This insanely creative project comes from the fun and fabulous blog Bakerella. This is pure cake genius. For more photos, a complete ‘how-to’ guide and recipe, see this post.

These sweet Valentine Heart Pins come from the creative minds over at Purl Bee. Such an adorable project! Check out the Purl Bee blog for a complete how-to guide.

I can’t think of a better thing to do for your sweetie pie than to make them a sweet pie! Complete with custom packaging! SO CUTE! This project comes from the super talented Kathleen over at Twig & Thistle. Be sure to check out this post for the apple pie recipe and a free template with instructions for the pie box!

These little Oreo Cakesters Hearts are a great idea Bakerella came up with. All you need is a box of Cakesters and a cutter. Now this is right up my alley: easy-peasy and oh so yummy!

If you feel like the Cakester Hearts are too much like cheating, you can always try these Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies. These require a little more effort but are still quite easy. Also from Bakerella.

We also spotted a few great valentine recipes from Better Homes and Gardens, seen in the images above…

For those less inclined to DIY (who just want to buy the darn thing and be done with it), Williams-Sonoma has a few great options: Sweetie Pies and Message Cookies.
