Getting Fun & Crafty: DIY Galentine’s Day Gifts Round-Up

I can’t believe how fast this year is already going by! I’ve been so busy with work and blogging and administrative kind of stuff that I decided I deserved a craft day…and what perfect excuse to make some cute DIY stuff but for Galentine’s Day! 

I pruned through Pinterest and found my favorites: 

Valentine’s White Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods from The Kitchen Is My Playground

XOXO Plate from The Pinning Mama

DIY Heart Mobile from Little Inspiration

 Valentine Heart Jars from Mason Jar Crafts

Clay Valentine Hearts Garland from So Much Better With Age

Cherry Jam Heart Pie Pops from The Sweetest Occassion

Valentine’s Wreath & Frame from Lil’ Luna All Things Good

Doilies & Hearts Jars from Jenny Doh’s Blog

Valentine’s Day Strawberry Sugar Scrub from Totally the Bomb

DIY Pom Pom Pillow from Crafts Unleashed

And a special Do Five Things A Day bonus:

Lovely Valentine’s Day Brownies:

Ingredients Needed: 

 Family Size Boxed Brownie Mix

16oz Jar of Buttercream Icing

Cinnamon Imperials

Sprinkles

Cupcake Liners

Muffin Baking Tins

Aluminum Foil

Directions:

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.) Prepare brownie mix as instructed on box.

3.) Line muffin pans with paper cupcake liners.

4.) Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full with brownie batter.

5.) Roll up strips of foil into small balls, about 1 inch each. You will need one for each filled cupcake liner.

6.) Pinch liners together to form heart shape and tuck a foil ball in the cup to hold place.

7.) Bake as directed, about 25 minutes.

8.) Let brownies cool completely.

9.) Apply icing and decorate as desired.

In hindsight, I think I should have used a larger foil ball to get a better heart shape but still sweet! 

Hope you all have an amazing Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day!
