The one with Valentine's day

This is a repost of a DIY I posted back in 2013. This is my most viewed post, and was featured on sites like Readers Digest and Brit.co
Because today is Valentine's day, I am posting this one again. Why? Because I think Valentine's day shouldn't have to be about fancy, expensive gifts and I wanted to show you that it's super easy to make a gift yourself. And what says I love you more, than a cute little DIY? This project only costed me a plate and a Sharpie (the one that has 'paint' written on it) that I already had. Besides that, all you need is a little bit of time!



Start by making ovals

Make triangles

Don't forget to bake your plate for half an hour at 150ºC / 300ºF
I do my dishes the old fashioned way, but once baked, it should
be dishwasher-proof.



To make it more fancy, you can wrap it up with some homemade cookies, or some of your loved ones favourite chocolates.You can find more DIY projects over here.

  2. I feel completely the same way - Valentine's should not be about running out to buy things. Handmade/homemade are the way to go!

  6. DIY is always special. I love that the project can also be done to upcycle or treat plates with minor scratches or damages.
