Why is Valentine’s Day Celebrated?
Celebrated this day in the honor of the great Saint Valentine. At that time, the king of Rome had forbid his soldiers from the “right to love” and “right to marriage”. It was Saint Valentine who revolted against the restraint. Slowly and steadily his message of love and hope spread far and war, and the world started celebrating Valentine’s Day as “the day of love”, on 14th of February every year.

Valentine’s Day Photo Box

DIY Heart blanket
The cozy blanket calls for a throw blanket, some all surface paint, a paintbrush, a pair of scissors, some cardboard, and cork for the construction. Once you cut out the cardboard hearts in three different sizes, you work up stamps by adding corks to the back of the hearts. The magic comes into play when you stamp the paint-coated hearts onto the blanket in a gradient pattern in terms of their sizes, and that’s all!
DIY Valentine’s light bulb
This is perfect gift idea that can be placed on the bedside table, and used for reading or writing when in bed. The first step towards building the bulb is to hollow out a regular light-bulb, adoring it with a cute love note written exclusively for your special someone, and voila! The breathtaking part about the bulb is those two tiny hearts made out of bright red wire, replacing the filament with utmost grace. Apart from the light-bulb itself, you are going to need to collect a red thin gauge wire, pliers, screwdriver, safety goggles, a scrap piece of wood or wood cube, pins, paper and pen, wire cutters, hammer, nails, and a hot glue gun to bring the project to life. The heart filaments are inserted into the piece of wood underneath the bulb that has got the love note attached to it with pins.
