DIY Craft Projects for Valentine’s Day

Creating Valentine’s Day Cards

Making your own Valentine’s Day card can save you money and the stress of finding that perfect card. Chances are you have enough craft supplies around the house to make something special. Glitter, hearts and googly eyes all make for excellent crafting materials when it comes to cards. You can even use those candy hearts as elements on your DIY Valentine’s Day card or keep it simple with construction paper and drawings. Try and think of a cute and clever line to guide your decorating. Here are a few examples:

1. Bee Mine

2. I moustache you to be my Valentine

3. Orange you glad we are friends

Making Valentine’s Day Gifts

Along with the amazing card you designed, it’s easy and inexpensive to attach a little gift. It’s perfect for staying on your budget. If you use the “Orange you glad we are friends” line, give a little gift bag or ziploc with an orange or clementines inside. Food is always a good gift whether it’s a healthy option or something sweeter. Try making your sweetheart’s favorite dessert or making an M&M’s mason jar!

Decorations for Valentine’s Day

Fortunately, very talented and kind people have created beautiful and free printables and directions to help with Valentine’s Day DIY projects. Whether you want to make a string of hearts, something for the mantle or leave nicely designed sentiments around the house, there are guides for you! You can even try this string heart project for a gift and decoration combo.
