I’m loving all the projects popping up around the blog world the last few weeks. I must say Valentine’s is one of my favourite DIY times of year. It’s right up there with Christmas. Sadly I never get to do as many of the projects as I would like, but that’s what next year is for right?
In case the above fantastic five aren’t enough for you, here are some Valentine’s DIY’s and treats that have been cooking around here on Squirrelly Minds:
- Pom Pom Balloons
- Pom Pom Gift Bags
- Valentine’s Stamps for Gift Wrapping
- Cupid’s Donut Hole Arrows
- Perfectly Valentine’s Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes
And here are a few from last year:
Now, that should keep you busy from now until February 14th!
And don’t forget that the 14 days of love giveaways are still running!
Have a wonderful weekend!

This cute and simple DIY is a great way to spruce up a yummy treat for this Valentine’s day. And it doesn’t have to be donut holes. You could use mini donuts, fruit, or even veggies. But let’s admit it…anything donut related is way more fun.
- Bamboo skewers
- Glitter card stock (or any card stock)
- Hot glue gun
- Donut holes or other treats
here) with heavy card stock. Trace the templates on the back of your glitter card stock, or any other card stock you choose. Trace 2 tails and two heads per skewer.
3 Carefully cut each shape.
4 Start with the arrow tails. Line a bead of hot glue on one side of your arrow tail and press together to another matching piece, glitter side facing outward. Make sure the two arrow tails line up evenly before the glue sets. Place the end of the bamboo skewer directly in the centre of the two pieces of card stock. Line another bead of hot glue inside the card stock, beside the skewer, and press firmly together until the glue sets.
5 Place your donut holes on the skewer. I put three on each one but you can choose to use more per arrow.
6 Follow step 4 again but with the arrowheads instead. When it’s time to glue them together, place the opposite end of the skewer in the centre of the arrowheads and glue together.
And there you have it! A fun and easy way to make it look like cupid left tasty treats at your Valentine’s party. Donut you want to party with cupid’s donut hole arrows?
