Fave DIYs for Valentine's Day and Beyond

We've rounded up a few of our favorite heart themed DIYs for Valentine's Day. These are easy, fun and good for year-round handmade gifting.

In addition to project links we've provided a few affiliate links as well.

Oh Happy Day offers some creative and inexpensive gift options for co-workers. We especially like their succulent idea, pictured below.

If you'd like something sweet and super easy, these decorated cinnamon Love Bug Oreos from Sarah's Bake Studio are pretty darn cute. 

Have you seen cinnamon Oreos at the store? We haven't. Luckily, Amazon currently has 'em

Being the book nerds we are, we think these sweetheart-like origami bookmarks are the bomb. DIY Candy created a great tutorial showing you how to make them.

Plants, cookies and books. What more do we need here? Oh yes. Some wine. Here's a Wine Valentine idea from the Cookie Rookie we wouldn't mind trying.

Pink Champagne Raspberry Floats sound pretty alright, yes?
