Valentine’s Day is coming! I think I like it better now that I’m older. It’s so much more fun with kids. No worrying about the romance or dates or whether anyone’s bringing you flowers. Just fun celebrations of love in all its forms.
Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that seems to lend itself — more than most — to crafty things and DIY-ing and being creative, too. Wouldn’t most of us rather have an imperfect valentine made by someone we love, than something outlandish and expensive that’s not really heartfelt? I think this is a sign I’m getting old.
So I’ve scoured blogs and posts and other ideas and come up with 15 of the most creative, cute, heart-warming Valentines Day crafts for this season. Try one with someone you love today!
1.) Felt Button Hearts — these felt button hearts are an easy, adorable project for kids just learning how to sew. Use them to top presents, as ornaments, or just give one to someone you love!
9.) Light-Up Valentines — this is one of my favorite crafts ever! Make valentines from Left Brain Craft Brain that actually light up! How cool is that?! You can work in some science and explain how it all works, too, if you want.
11.) Natural Valentine’s Day Crafts — don’t forget our outdoor friends! By the time February rolls around, the birds and other outdoor creatures can certainly use a little treat. Try these ideas from No Time for Flashcards.
13.) Valentine Pretzels — the nice thing about decorating pretzel sticks is that you can get as fancy (or not) as you want. Grab a ton of different sprinkles and toppers, or just stick to one and have a great time! Check out The Lady Behind the Curtain for more ideas to decorate them.
So many crafts — so many ways to spend time with those you love! Happy Valentine’s Day!
