LOVE LOVE mushy LOVE.
Valentine’s Day is so fun! You don’t have to have a “significant other” to have warm fuzzies on February 14th. Ignoring the Hallmark commercialism, I choose to fully embrace the day as a chance to be adorably crafty in how I celebrate all of the loves in my life. Friends, kids, spouse, family…
There are so many ways to add lovely touches to your decor, fashion, food or gifts. We, of course, couldn’t resist making a¬†Thrifty DIY Valentine’s Board on Pinterest to share with you all. And as always – all of these ideas are completely customizable! Start with the inspiration and make it your own: switch up the colors, texture, size, placement, graphic…limitless possibilities.
Here’s a taste of the thrifty hearty DIY loveliness to get you started!
thrifted fabric & frame + hot glue = simple heart art for under $5.00
¬†Stop by our¬†housewares section for fun shaped silicon baking-ware.
DIY heart crayons are a great use for all those broken ones the kids have at home or school.
Be the queen of hearts with this sweet & simple Vday garland.
Stop by our toys/games section & grab a couple decks of cards.
Hole punch, weave ribbon through and TA-DA!
So many simple tees & tops for your little ones at Thrift Town for under $2.00!
Pick up a simple iron-on transfer image at the craft store for
an adorable personalized top for toddlers to teens.
Onesie LOVE! Even the littlest of your crew can sport the love with iron on designs.
Baby basics for around $1.00 at Thrift Town!
Customize a simple collared top for yourself, or a friend!
Use a paper or cloth doiley, saturate in fabric paint & “stamp” a thrifted basic.
¬†Wrap a wreath base from the craft store with thrifted fabric.
You could even use a secondhand sweater or blouse to get variety in fabrics.
Pick up a thrifted text-heavy book for around $1.00.
Make a heart template, cut away, stack hearts & run through the sewing machine!
You can also punch holes in the tops & tie red ribbon/twine through each to have it hang differently.
Our baking sections always have such fun stuff!
And just for the record, cookie cutters aren’t just for cookies.
Use thrifted cookie cutters for heart shaped mini cakes,
marshmellows for hot cocoa¬†(check out this¬†homemade marshmellow recipe¬†),
pancakes or even to add a little love to fruit in the morning.
fabric + button + hot glue + hair clip = adding a little raggedy love to your little one’s tresses.
LAST but not least, check out the SHOP tab of the Thrift Town website on Valentine’s Day.
We’ll be opening up our NEW Logo Gear Store so you can show the world how much you
LOVE Thrift Town by wearing Thrift Town Logo Gear. This shirt will be avalable at the Logo Gear Store,
as well as at Thrift Town stores (while supplies last).
Are you inspired? I sure am!
Can’t wait to spoil my loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
