Hey y’all! Sorry it’s been so quite around here lately. Even though it’s been quiet on the blog, I can assure you it hasn’t been quiet around my household. It’s been so busy that I haven’t had time to hop on here and catch up. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have heard me mention that we are opening a store. EEEKKKKK!!!! I can’t even believe it!! This has been a dream for as long as I can remember and it still feels so surreal. I promise to share more about it soon and show you all some pictures of how the store is coming along. In the meantime, I thought I’d share a quick and fun Valentine DIY with you all.
I’ve been so inspired by my friend Jessica on Instagram lately. When I saw her make these little hearts in her stories, I knew I had to give it a try. The lavender was a little something extra that I added. I already had everything on hand to make these and made them all within about 30 minutes. There are also some substitutions if you don’t have everything on hand, and I’ve listed those below.

How to make Valentine DIY Lavender Sachets:
Using a heart shaped object, trace your hearts onto a piece of fabric. I had some red ticking stripe fabric left over from my Christmas rag wreath that I used. The size of your hearts is completely up to you. I had some heart garland that I cut up to use the hearts. It’s best to trace a heart object so that you can make sure the front and back of your hearts are the exact same size.
Once you have your hearts drawn, cut them out with scissors.
Next, apply your fabric glue around 3/4 of one of your hearts, then place the second heart on top and allow the fabric glue to dry (about 20-30 min). Once it’s dry, you will have 1/4 of a space open to stuff in your polyfil and lavender.
Step 4 (optional):
While your fabric glue is drying, you can ink stamp a separate piece of fabric to add a little extra charm to your sachet. I had some extra drop cloth lying around that I cut into small strips and stamped Valentine sayings on them. Once my hearts were complete, I glued the strips onto the top of the heart with the fabric glue.
Once your glue is dry, alternate stuffing the Polyfil and pinches of lavender into the open space. Once your heart is full, use the fabric glue to seal the rest of the opening.
That’s it friends! I actually made these at my desk on my lunch break. That’s how quick and easy it was.
I styled them in the centerpiece on my coffee table, but there are so many things you can do with these. They are great to put in your undergarment drawers to give the fresh scent of lavender. They also make great gifts for friends and teachers. You could even string some through a thread to create a cute garland.
I shared a DIY on these deconstructed books, along with a few other ideas for styling books, a good while back. Oh, and this Cashmere candle by Antique Candle Works is THE BEST candle I’ve ever smelled in my life. I’m not even kidding! And it’s on sale right now!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I’ll be back on Monday to share more Valentine DIY inspiration, along with some of my friends.
Be blessed! xoxo
