A crafty Valentine’s Day

if you’re trying to do Valentine’s Day on a budget or you just want to be fun & crafty, you won’t want to miss out on these V-Day crafts. These all showed up on my Pinterest stream and I hunted down the original post pages so that I could share them with you. Not only would they be great for Valentine’s Day, but you could use these as decorating ideas for a crafty wedding, bridal shower, or for your anniversary…. even decorating a child’s room/nursery. Check out these fun and cute ideas!

Valen-tiny – mini heart garland/bunting

If you are a fan of bunting, but don’t have much room, this tiny heart bunting/garland is a perfect accent. I may give this a try myself. You could do this with different shapes, too, for other seasons, by cutting out circles, triangles, etc. Definitely a very adaptable tutorial.

Paint Chip Valentines

Have any paint chips laying around the house that need repurposing? Make Valentines!  There are so many fun crafts out there that you can do with paint chips, and I thought this was a cute (and eco-friendly) idea.

Wax paper crayon hearts

I love, love, love this! I seem to remember doing something like this when I was a child (though probably not as pretty, since this is a Martha Stewart activity). These would be such pretty sun-catchers and would be fun gifts to make with your child to give to grandparents and friends for Valentine’s (or any holiday, really).

Love you heart bookmarks

I love this craft because it’s cute and seems pretty easy to do. I enjoy crafting, but I’m not what you would call extremely crafty… so I like the kinds of crafts that are easy, fun, and have a very pleasing result. You could vary this one up, too, by using photos in the middle of the heart, or colorful scrapbook paper (if you don’t have fabric) or anything else that you think would look pretty. The best craft projects, IMO, are the ones that are easily adaptable, and this one fits the bill.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my crafty Valentine’s roundup! I’m not sure if I’ll actually have time to do any of these this week before Valentine’s day, but fortunately most of them can work for other holidays or events, too, so I’m sure I’ll get to them at some point. They look like they’ll be a lot of fun!
