5 Handmade Valentine Gifts & Decor

Hey there! Sami here, blogger and natural cosmetics maker behind Poor & Pretty. Valentine's Day is only 10 days away! Make this the year you give something handmade. Pick up something from our members' shops or create something of your own. Here are five ideas:


1. DIY Hand-Stamped Valentines: Create your own heart-shaped stamps with a sheet of sticky-back foam and a cork, then stamp kraft paper cards. See the full tutorial here.


2. DIY Conversation Heart Candle Holders: Place a votive and tealight candle into a clear glass jar and sprinkle conversation hearts around the votive. Voila! You've just made a pretty Valentine centerpiece. Full tutorial here.


3. DIY Mason Jar Hot Cocoa Mug: They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Give the gift of homemade hot chocolate in a sturdy and reusable mason jar mug. Full tutorial here.



4. DIY Teacup Candles: I made these adorable candles from vintage teacups for my friend's tea party themed wedding shower, but they would make a great handmade gift, too! See the full tutorial here.


5. DIY Vanilla Coconut Sugar Scrub: Skip the expensive spa gift card and give homemade luxury instead with this luscious and heavenly-scented handmade sugar scrub. Full tutorial here.
