DIY Valentine’s Day Crafts

Not only is creating Valentine’s Day crafts better for your wallet, but it’s way more fun and personal than buying the same roses and cards everyone else is buying. Check out our favorite Valentine’s Day craft ideas for gifts, décor, and everything in between.

Crafting Your Own Valentine’s Day Gifts

Before deciding on the type of gift you want to make for your loved one, think about their personality and the things they enjoy doing. This way, you can ensure you give them something they’ll use.

If they’re sentimental and take many photos, consider creating a custom picture frame. All you need is a blank picture frame, paint, decorative tape and/or glitter, and anything else you might want to put on it.  Add an anniversary date, quote, or your names on the frame for a more personal touch. If you’re making a frame from a child, consider placing their handprint or thumbprint on it!

For those who love to relax, make a bath bomb using their favorite scents. Plant lovers would love a brand new plant to add to their collection, complete with a decorated pot. Lastly, almost everyone loves a good candle, so why not create a unique candle holder made of birchwood with your initials carved into it? No matter what you choose, make sure to create a Valentine’s Day gift that’s heartfelt and special.

Handmade Valentine’s Day Cards

Aside from the actual gift, you’ll also need to create a Valentine’s Day card just as sentimental as the gift itself. While you can get fancy with a Cricut or special paper, all you need to create a Valentine’s Day card is:

  • Colorful cardstock paper
  • Markers
  • Stencils
  • Stickers
  • Ribbon
  • Glitter
  • Paint

Use your creativity and craft a heartfelt message for the person you’re making the card for.
