LAST MINUTE VALENTINE'S DAY IDEA: DIY HEART PICKS

No matter if you celebrate Valentine's Day or not (I personally don't), these heart picks are too cute to not make them! Perfect if you want to spend some sweet time with your Valentine and had oh-no time to look for a gift, or simply want to make something cute for gilrs tea time. Something that will take you only few minutes and bring some love to your table! // Non importa se celebrate o no San Valentino (io, personalmente, no), questi stecchini a cuore sono troppo carini per non realizzarli! Perfetti se volete passare dei dolci momenti col vostro Valentino e non avete avuto tempo per cercare un regalo, o se volete semplicemente qualcosa di carino per il vostro tè tra ragazze. Vi prenderanno pochi minuti e porteranno un po' di amore sulla vostra tavola!


Last minute = life saver! If you were looking for something easy, cute and
very quick for a little surprise for you beloved, then you only need to read and have fun
making these hearted picks!
//
Last minute = la salvezza! Se stavate cercando qualcosa di facile,
carino e  davvero veloce per fare una sorpresa al vostro amato/a, bene, dovete solo leggere
e divertirvi a realizzare questi stecchini a cuore!

***

You need // Vi occorre:

- Red velvet paper (or simple red cardboard). // Carta vellutata rossa (o del semplice cartoncino).
- Scissors, glue, pencil. // Forbici, colla e matita.
- Paper leaf. // Foglio di carta.
- Toothpicks. // Stuzzicandenti.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
First, fold the leaf in half, draw a little half of a heart and cut it to have a heart (almost) perfect. // Innanzitutto piegate il foglio a metà, disegnate un piccolo mezzo cuore e ritagliate, così da ottenere 
un cuore (quasi) perfetto.


2)
Use it as a sample and draw on the back of velvet paper as many hearts as the double 
of your toothpicks number (you'll need 2 hearts for each pick). // Usando il cuoricino
come modello, disegnate sul retro della carta vellutata tanti cuoricini pari al doppio
degli stecchini che avete (serviranno 2 cuori per ogni stecchino).


3)
Cut them, then take 2 picks and glue them together with the top of the toothpicks
between them. // Ritagliateli, poi prendetene 2 ed incollateli tra loro con in mezzo
la parte superiore dello stecchino.


4)
Go on until you've finished your toothpicks... // Andate avanti finchè non avete finito gli stecchini...


5)
And voilà! Your super sweet tea time is ready! // E voilà! La vostra merenda super dolce
è pronta!


Enjoy your date, guys! Or simply your tea and cookies on the couch with you
puppy! Everyday is perfect for some love, no matter the type!
//
Godetevi il vostro appuntamento, o semplicemente il vostro tè e biscotti sul divano col
vostro animale domestico! Ogni giorno è perfetto per un po' di amore, non importa di che tipo!

  1. So cute! I actually saw these in the shop the other week and was contemplating buying them (what for? I have no idea). Lucky I didn't because I'm pretty sure even I can attempt this

  27. Hehe, I don't celebrate V-day either. Honestly, I don't even know what day it is ;). I say, every day should be valentines day. But I will say this-- that is an excellent looking teapot.
