DIY Kids: Homemade Valentine’s Day Favors

DIY Kids: Homemade Valentine’s Day Favors

We welcome 11-year-old Ana Duss as today’s guest blogger. It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I knew I needed to make something for my friends. I found a lot of inspiration from YouTube videos and Pinterest.

It was donated to the Big Flea and my Mom and Dad bought it, along with one other, that my sister Nadja uses. I lay out my clothes everyday so I can decide what matches best. This first look is one of my many blue skirts and white tops paired with a tan scarf, black boots, cheetah print knee socks, and a black headband. What’s the point of having pretty knee socks if you can’t see them? This next look are some blue leggings...
