Valentine’s Crafts – DIY Decor for Valentine’s Day!

I don’t usually do a WHOLE lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but one or two pretty and romantic items are always fun in the house during what is usually a dreadfully cold and snowy February.

For this coming Valentine’s Day, I’m going to make something new to add to my Valentine’s Crafts.  Here are the choices.  You can vote at the end in the comments and let me know what to make!

A DIY Valentine’s Day card is so perfect.  It’s heartfelt and you’re not buying in to the commercial side of the holiday.

Valentine Yarn Wrapped Trees from Shaken Together Life

Valentine Yarn Wrapped Trees - love the colors and textures of that yarn! Perfect for a Valentine mantel or vignette!

Now, I’m not saying that sometimes the Christmas decorations get left out until Valentine’s Day.  But, I am saying that if you use a little ingenuity, you could double duty these Yarn Wrapped Trees from Shaken Together Life for Christmas AND Valentines.

You all know I love double duty crafts.  For Christmas you could do a traditional garland and then this sweet heart garland for Valentine’s Day.

I love it and, again, these are SUPER easy to make. You can use cones from Amazon and some of that leftover yarn I know you’re hoarding.

Love Frame from Quirky Inspired

How quaint is this little Love Frame from Quirky Inspired?  There is something romantic about that sheet music, isn’t there?

This is just a thrift store frame painted red and then the paper elements added.  It’s perfect for the holiday mantel.

If you don’t love the font, don’t worry there are about a zillion to letter stickers to choose from on Amazon.

If you don’t have sheet music, you can use a page from an old book, or grab a set of craft paper like this.

Kraft Paper Hearts by Lilly Bug StudioValentine Paper Bag Hearts

I adore these little Brown Paper Hearts from Lilly Bug Studio.  They are simple and sort of minimal looking, but still very “Valentine’s Day”.

Picture these hanging from a vase of branches.  Or, make a bunch for a garland across the fireplace.

Rainbow Heart Suncatchers from Fireflies and Mudpies

Crafters of all ages will enjoy learning how to make gorgeous Rainbow Heart Suncatchers with tissue paper and glue, perfect for Valentine's Day! #heartsuncatchers #valentinesdaycrafts #rainbowheartsuncatchers #tissuepapercrafts #suncatchercrafts #easycraftsforkids #preschoolcrafts #heartcrafts #rainbowcrafts #heartcraftideas

A pretty suncatcher in your window in the middle of Winter is a very, very good idea.  I live in New England and unless it is currently snowing or it is less than 24 hours from the last snow, outside can look pretty ugly in the winter.

Don’t be fooled by those pretty landscapes of clean, pure driven snow.  Ten minutes after that photo was taken, the plows come by and the snow gets piled in mounds, swirled with dirt and debris.  It’s not a good look.

So, make these simple Heart Shaped Sun Catchers from Fireflies and Mudpies and focus on them instead!

Pom Pom Hearts Garland from Fun Littles

Here’s a great little craft that you can do with your kiddos or niece or nephew.

Make a bunch of these bright and fun Pom Pom Hearts from Fun Littles and then string them together as a festive garland.

Don’t worry you’ll find a million more crafts to do with the leftover pompoms.

Valentine’s Tissue Wreath from Lifestyle For Real Life

And last but not least, here’s my Ombre Tissue Paper Wreath that I made a few years ago fro Valentines Day. This was crazy easy to make and I love the look of it.

I actually gifted this to my mom, so I’ll have to maybe make myself another one!
