Valentine's Day
With shimmering white heart sprinkles hidden among the feathers, this cake is the perfect Valentine's Day surprise for your sweetheart. (But we also love it for a baby shower or ballet-themed birthday party.) The magic is all in the candy melt “feathers,” a technique you’re gonna want to use all over the place.

Valentine's Day and sweets are made for each other. And if you ask us, real love (or at least "real like") calls for the real deal — butter, chocolate and all.

This just in: you no longer have to wear your heart on your sleeve. In fact, we recommend carrying it around in your hands, literally! These simple knit mitts get a bit of V-Day love with stitched embellishments. (Or any embellishments you want, really.)

Embroidery + paper = one of the coolest cards we've seen. Seriously, look how beautiful this is! And it's actually pretty simple to make, even if you haven't tried embroidery before.
Move over, chocolate. We're all about the crochet hearts this Valentine's Day. Whip up a bunch using scrap yarn, or just make one for that very special someone. (And then maybe attach it to some chocolate.)

This Valentine's Day, give a piece (er, pieces?) of your heart with a cool mashup of collage and watercolor. Not a watercolor fan? No sweat — you can reinterpret this design using markers, colored pencils or even glitter. Whatever medium you choose, your boo will heart it.
