ADULTS: Conversation Heart Leggings

If you’re thinking about making a costume for Valentine’s day, but you want to keep it somewhat low key, these conversation heart leggings by Studio DIY are perfect. You can easily transform plain white leggings into festive Valentine’s leggings with the free printables and iron on transfer paper. (I’ve used iron on transfer paper before for a few projects and I was surprised at how well it worked. Just make sure that you iron around the edges of your hearts for a long time to prevent peeling.) These leggings would be fun to wear to work or school on or around Valentine’s Day, or would be a cute and simple costume to wear to a Valentine’s party.

KIDS: Duct Tape Wings Costume

I love seeing amazing and elaborate things that people make out of duct tape! These duct tape wings by Doodlecraft are no exception. These wings are made mostly out of plain white duct tape and would be perfect for a Cupid costume for Valentine’s day. You could also use these wings as a part of an Angel costume, or another winged creature. To create these wings you will need white duct tape, foam board, wooden sticks, a hot glue gun, scissors, and elastic. You could also pair them with a set of handmade bow and arrows.
