So it’s one week to go until Valentines Day and we’ve still got some super cute DIYs to share to with you for the big day! Today we’re welcoming Patricia from Hello Eventos to the blog, she’s going to be sharing with you how you can make this ridiculously cute heart lollipop piñata! So without further ado, over to you Patricia…

DIY Heart Lollipop Piñata for Valentines Day party fun pinata tutorial-11

Hey! I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Patricia and I’m a party stylist and blogger at Hello Eventos in Spain. Let me tell you that I’m super glad to be on Bespoke Bride today and even more for a Valentines Day DIY piñata! As a party lover, I’m crazy for the day that we celebrate LOVE and every year I do something special for my valentine. This year I was thinking of creating a piñata and what’s better than a heart lollipop?! Heart lollipops are one of my favorite treats. I filled the piñata with lots of them and can’t wait to open it back up and share all of the candy! Let’s do it!

YOU WILL NEED:

Cardboard (I upcycled a big box from a delivery) // A cardboard tube // Red and white crepe paper // Scissors // Glue gun // Treats and confetti // Rope or lace //

STEP 1:

First we need to shape the heart so cut 2 cardboard hearts and 2 stripes out of your cardboard.

STEP 2:

Hot glue the stripes to the first heart. Leave 10cm of the bottom end of one of the stripes without glue because this will be the door way for the candies. Next, hot glue the second half on top.

STEP 3:

Using your glue gun, adhere the cardboard tube to the bottom of the heart then cut the word LOVE out of the cardboard. Fix the rope or lace to the inside of the door way and attach the word LOVE at the end of the rope.

We already mentioned last week how big we think geode is going to be in the wedding world this year so we thought it would be fun to bring a little amethyst into our free printables with these easy geode drink stirrers! I love how pretty and colourful they came out, can you imagine how striking these would look filling the glasses on a table? They’re ridiculously easy to create too, I made 12 drink stirrers in about 20 minutes so it’s totally manageable to make a bunch of these in an afternoon.

YOU WILL NEED:

Free Printable Geode Drink Stirrers // A Printer // White Card // A Gold Gel Pen // BBQ Skewers // All Purpose Glue //

STEP 1:

Print your geode shapes out onto white card, making sure you select a high quality print setting. There are 24 geode shapes per A4 piece in shades of pink, purple and teal so print off as many sheets as you need.

STEP 2:

Using your gold gel pen go over the areas of the shape that are a light cream colour so that they’re replaced with a beautiful shiny gold instead! This just adds that extra element to your drink stirrers and make them reflect the light.
