Make Your Own Sleeping Mask for Valentine's Day

Make Your Own Valentine's Sleep Mask

It's been a hot minute since I last did a DIY over here— December 8th, to be exact— so in the spirit of this upcoming Valentine's Day and all things girlie, I thought it would be fun to make a heart-eyed sleeping mask reminiscent of this fancy Morgan Lane one. This project is super quick and easy, affordable— we're talking a fraction of the price of the designer version— and makes a great gift for a girlfriend, romantic partner or heck, even yourself (my typical gift recipient of choice... wink wink). So with that in mind, let's get to crafting, Valentines!

Make Your Own Valentine's Sleep Mask

SUPPLIES: SLEEPING MASK (LOVE THIS CHEVRON VERSION)  ||  RED FELT  ||  GLUE  ||  SHARPIE  ||  HEART SHAPE GUIDE  ||  SCISSORS

To start, this DIY will be made a whole lot easier if you have some kind of heart shape to trace onto the felt; unless you have a steady hand and are feeling brave (remember, you need two identical hearts here), trust me on this one. A cookie cutter, trinket, or whatever heart-shaped item you have on hand will work great— feel free to get creative on that front. I, for example, used a remnant from a super old DIY to trace mine... I'm almost embarrassed to share the link with you, but hey, we're all friends here, right? *cringe* Anyway, trace two heart shapes onto the felt using a sharpie and cut them out. Boom

Next up, slather some glue— preferably fabric glue, but whatever you have on hand (like jewelry glue, in my case) will do— onto the messy, sharpie-covered side of your felt hearts, then place them onto the sleeping mask. Press down on each heart for about 60 seconds to secure them, then place a heavy book over the mask and let it dry fully for about 24 hours before using or gifting the mask... totally gifting this one to Boyfriend come Valentine's Day, despite the fact that he shot these photos for me and won't be at all surprised when he sees it! Lol
