Valentines Day Crafting

valentines pegs 5 final

I always become very excited about valentines day crafting and usually begin lots of love themed crafts around this time of year, sometimes before Christmas even! I thought I would share some of my favourite makes, some available at Paper Doily and some just for eye candy! All of the items pictured above are simple, enjoyable to make and very effective.

The wooden washi tape pegs are perfect for prettifying gifts, dessert tables or used around the house to hang favourite cards or photographs. Wooden pegs are so easy to find and it’s quite amazing how a simple piece of patterned tape can transform such a plain item! If you’re anything like me and have jars full of washi tapes, this is a great way to use your stash! I’ve also seen patterned fabric tape in a fair few craft shops, which is a lovely alternative.

I could imagine these pegs used on wedding favours/wedding dessert tables. I had several sweet jars on my dessert table at my own wedding in April of last year and I wish I had thought of this idea back then. They are the perfect addition to sweet bags if guests wish to take away sweet treats without getting covered in sugar.

The heart gift tags were also very enjoyable to make. I always seem to have lots of patterned wrapping paper left over from gift wrapping and I thought this was a really good way to use it up. I’m also a sucker for patterned paper packs and have so many floating around my craft room. The glitter paper is my favourite at the moment. I actually had hundreds of beautiful paper straws left over from my wedding and decided to use the glitter paper to add heart embellishments to them. As of yet, I haven’t started any valentines themed crochet projects, but this could be on the pipeline!

I’ve been browsing the web for lots of crafting inspiration and wow, I certainly found it! I thought this would be a lovely way to end the post. If you’re anything like me and spend hours on pinterest, you’ll know how hard it was to choose such a small selection of favourites! Will you be doing any valentines day crafting this year and do you get as excited as I do?

Decorative Wooden Pegs

Paper Doily Pegs 3 pegs 5 final Paper Doily pegs 2 final

We’ve been very busy making lots of adorable pegs for our Etsy shop recently and we thought we would share! They are absolutely perfect for prettifying wedding favour bags or wrapped gifts. They would also look lovely in the home, perhaps hanging from a lovely piece of twine with your favourite photographs or artwork attached.

These pegs are just standard clothes pegs and are very easy to find in most hardware stores or supermarkets. I purchased a large pack of these from my local supermarket. I searched online for patterned washi tape and came across such an amazing selection, mainly on Etsy. The great thing about these pegs, is that you only need a very small amount of washi tape to cover them. This means that you will have lots of tape left for coordinating party crafts, should you be having a big DIY session.

I have decided to sell these in lovely packs of 10 here but if you decide to get creative yourself, then let me know. I would love to see!
