Colorful Valentine's Day DIY Projects that are Kind to Us and the Planet

DIY Tips, Ideas, Blog Roundup for Valentine's Day

February's most colorful holiday is 
Valentine's Day. This post reveals 
special ways red, white, and pink 
help make DIY projects and gifts 
kinder to its people and the planet.

Post updated 1/19/2022

Red is a Valentine's color that is 
usually reserved for romantic, 
intimate relationships.

Red vibrations represent life, love, 
passion, and desire.

Handmade gifts, cards, and crafts
decorated with red hearts signals 
romance and intimacy.

White signifies affection
and appreciation.

A kind gesture that incorporates 
white is to use white paper and send 
handwritten Valentine's Day notes 
to people we care about.  

Research shows giving or getting this 
type of correspondence makes us all 
feel happier.

Love Affirmation
Affirmation from Nancy Andres

It's fun and amazing to notice how contagious love is! 

White is the color of a white 
paper doily decorative wreath, 
white chocolates, and the pages of 
love poem books. 

As a gift to ourselves, we may choose 
to paint one or more walls in our 
living room or office white. This 
inexpensive décor  update  helps 
any area appear more spacious.

White space has a calming effect and
provides an opening for those things, 
people, and activities we enjoy.  

White roses make an aromatic gift, 
and some say they are a sign of loyalty 

The color pink is a combination of red 
and white, and blends both colors' 

Pink is a nurturing, supportive color, 
one that instinctively reminds us of 
warm feelings, unconditional love, 
and gentleness. 

Dark pink signals a mysterious sense 
of attraction or gratitude. 

Light pink tones convey gentle
affection and admiration.
