What to Make This Weekend: Superhero Shoes, Galentine’s Day Balloons + More

Chances are high you might be doing something Super Bowl related this weekend. Maybe you’re going all out with the Super Bowl party decor. Or maybe you’re just there for the commercials and delicious game day appetizers. Either way, you’re going to have a whole afternoon dedicated to sitting in front of the TV so why not use that precious weekend time to DIY something awesome. Nothing against football, but making DIY Galentine’s Day gifts and DIY Valentine’s Day cards is always a win, no matter what the official game score is, right? Scroll down for 15 projects to take on before Monday rolls back around.

1. DIY Galentine’s Balloons: Take the conversation heart to the sky with message balloons. Use tattoos and stickers to spell out love messages and let your better half and BFFs know exactly how you feel. (via Studio DIY)

2. DIY Conversation Heart Dress: Beware: Adding conversation hearts to clothing may become slighting addicting. Case in point? This adorable little dress. Don’t mind us if we wear this LBD all the way through spring. (via Brit + Co)
