DIY Heart-Shaped Bokeh

Today we’re sharing a little pre-Valentine’s Day love with these sweet DIY heart-shaped bokeh photographs from Karen of Globetrotter Diaires (who also happens to be my wonderful little sister)! Creating heart-shaped blurs is something I’ve been dying to try after admiring so many similar images floating around the internet. If you’re interested in the simple how-to, head over to Karen’s blog for the full tutorial . . .
