A Collection of the Most Adorable DIY & Handmade Valentine Photo Props for Baby

Here we are in the final stretch of January. Can you believe it? I’m still recovering from the madness of the holidays. I’m one of those people who loves to celebrate them by getting into the handmade spirit, my favourites being; Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

I wan’t always that way – especially concerning Valentine’s Day. I’m still not into spending a boat-load of money on gifts for partners or children. But handmade gifts? Cute photo props for babies and toddlers? Come to mama. They’re only wee for such a short time, and they’re definitely not going to let us dress them in these types of get-ups for pictures when they are older – let alone for parties and get -togethers.

So get to it while the time is ripe, these Valentine tutorials and handmade photo props are irresistible and will melt even the coldest, jaded of hearts. You’ll have to memories to treasure and share forever. Just remember that you’ll need to order or start making your choice soon, which is why I’ve shared this round-up for plenty of time to allow for shipping or creating.
