A good DIY project you can make to decorate your table or desk on Valentine’s day. This Awesome and easy valentine’s day DIY project you can make at home.
If I’m going to be honest, I thought it would be late for another DIY project for this Valentine. So I gave up but then, after thinking about it, it seems I still have time haha. I already mane one and if you missed it, you can check it here.
So I decided to dedicate this post to another Awesome valentine’s day DIY project you can make at home. And I kinda got creative with this one haha. Stay tuned to see what is this project is all about.
Something I like about occasional celebrations like Christmas is that you can vibe making the project while listening to its music. But, I’m not sure it would be perfect for valentine haha.

Awesome valentine’s day DIY project you can make at home
Let’s get started and show you guys this awesome Valentine’s day project. Are you guys ready?
As usual, this project was made out of cardboard and paper. And if you know me, I have done all my projects using these two haha. I started to get impressed that we can do ideas with only these two lol.
Anyways, this project will be perfect for tables during valentine’s day. You can put it on a desk or even any surface you want as long as it’s the perfect place to show love, you know.
I would recommend the decorated dining table because it’s the best place for this project.
Also, this project doesn’t take a lot of time which may be a problem for some people. It was an easy and quick project that you can do which is cool. I wouldn’t do long projects too haha don’t worry.
Alright, I’m going to start as usual. Showing you guys the items that will be used for this project. It’s easy and if you have extra cardboard. You can make this.
The required items
So for this project, I started with getting the main items which as you can see in the pictures above. A circle base that will be a place to make everything on it.
I wondered if I could do it in a square shape. But I couldn’t imagine that would perfect. So The circle shape is the best option. Just in case you wonder haha.
The second picture above that would a holder or frame for the notes. You would ask me what notes?
Well, I was going to make it for one love note that you can put. But I thought it would be cool if we can put more than one. So this way, it can be changed and we can use it also for the next valentine as well.
If you have read my recent funny moments. I mentioned that constant changes would happen and that would be something funny. Well, it happened on this project as well haha.
I started working on this project with a simple idea. And few minutes, I came out with something else haha. It’s not my problem. Ideas were flowing in my mind during the time I was cutting the cardboard and things changed, you know haha. The new ideas won the competition and I had to go with it lol.
The third picture is going to be a stand and that’s when we start using the paper haha. It’s easy to make that by just folding the paper and that stand is 5cm.
Well, I’m not done yet. There are more items but I’m keeping them until the end of this post. When it’s time to reveal the finished look of this project.
The making of the project
Alright, now this project doesn’t require a lot and it’s easy as I said earlier. So, it’s time to show you guys what I did to make this project and show you the finished look as well. Does that sound exciting? haha, let’s go!
First, I started by adding the white layer using paper. This is the first thing to do after getting everything ready. It’s a painting but it’s paper glued on the cardboard.
This way, I can add colors or any decoration I want. It can’t be done when it’s only brown(cardboard color).
Second, I glued the two pieces of cardboard for the note together. From the left side and the bottom. I wanted to use more cardboard to be able to glue them together. And make enough space for the paper note to get inside it. However, things changed and I decided to just put more glue on the side but don’t push too hard. Which actually turned out better. Just place it over the glue until it dries.
As you can see, I tried to see if it would work putting paper inside it. And it did get inside smoothly. I’m going to show another picture of it in a bit as well.
Then, I started adding the red and valentine vibes by adding the red border on the sides that were glued.
Next, I glued the stand on the circle base as you can see in the picture above. Make sure to put it not too far on the edge and not too close to the center.
The stand is 5cm which will make the frame in a perfect position to present the notes. But you can make it longer or smaller if you want.
As you can see in the picture above. I glued the frame to the stand and the base. Well, the two red borders were a last-minute idea as well haha. But I think it’s a good addition.
Are you guys ready for the big reveal of the finished look of this project?
Drum roll please and…
BOOM!!! There it is. The finished look of this lovely valentine’s day project. Now you can feel the vibes haha. What do you guys think of it? Let me know in the comments. Is it a good valentine’s day decoration or not?
Also, if you notice, I said earlier, a square base is not good and that’s why. It wouldn’t be perfect for this project.
Here you can see that I was pulling the note out. And you can replace it with any note or something you want to express to your partner. This would be perfect for the long term. You can still add more decoration to it if you want.
