10 Adorable DIY Valentines I Would Totally Make If I Wasn't So Lazy

Paint chip valentines from Inhabitots

Homemade valentines: So sweet, so special, and sooo reserved for better moms than me. I try--I really do! I mean, I would love to break out the glue and the creativity for Valentine's Day. But I'm usually inspired to actually do something, like, the night before my kid has to bring in her valentines. So it hasn't really been in the cards for me. (Last year, I did think ahead and got these adorable valentines...but I procrastinated too much this year to even do that.)

Anyway, here are the valentines I wish I could have done this year. Let's all pin this post and try to remember to do them next year at the last possible second, shall we?

1) 3D Lollipop valentines: From 24-7-365.

2) Shopkins valentines: I pray my Shopkins-obsessed daughter never learns that these adorable valentines exist, because she will kill me. (From Hello Splendid.)

3) Star Wars Light Sabre valentines: Pinned this for next year when my son has to bring valentines in! (From Krafty Mama.)

4) Goldfish valentines: From Backless Shirt.

5) Lovebug valentines: From Dandee Designs.

6) Gummy Bear valentines: From C.R.A.F.T.

7) Gumball machine valentines: Holy shit! Are there really moms out there who take the time to do this? I BOW DOWN TO YOU.  (From Meet the Dubiens.)

8) Whoopee cushion valentines: From Paging Supermom.

9) Color Me Happy valentines: From The Pretty Bee.

10) Ring Pop valentines: From Bloom Designs.

So what did you guys do for valentines this year? And have you ever tried something as ambitious as the ones here?

The light saber ones are so cute. My daughter would love the crayon ones, she's all about art.

All very lovely! My kid would have none of these. Maybe a giant bag of M&Ms and some hand sanitizer. (So people can sanitize their hands before scooping out exactly 6 from the communal bag.)
