Valentine’s Day DIY can make Christmas crafting seem like a mere warmup. The homemade gift wrap and DIY mason jar gifts were just practice for the main maker event on February 14, where lovers and friends, classmates and coworkers show each other much they care with a perfectly thoughtful homemade something-or-other.
Clever cards, shades of pink DIY home decor and heart-shaped food projects are making the rounds on Pinterest right about now with proclamations of “fail-proof fun!” that “anyone can do!” But what happens when someone sets out to turn those effortless inspirational photos into reality? It takes a brave soul to rise above these epic Valentines’ Day craft fails. Sometimes it really is the thought that counts.
