Valentine’s Day might not be here quite yet, but it’s officially February and we’re totally excited for it! We love decorating for and celebrating Valentine’s Day each year because, whether the love you’ve got in your life right now is a romantic one or not, it’s nice to make those who mean the most to you feel appreciated no matter what your relationship is. One of your favourite parts of celebrating something is making our homes look as festive as possible- all in a DIY way, of course!
Check out these 15 awesome homemade Valentine’s Day crafts that make perfect decor for your home, your workplace, or just about any other place you can get your hands on.
1. Felt heart Valentine Trees
Christmas has trees and some people even set up Easter trees, but have you ever heard of a Valentine’s Day tree? We hadn’t either, but now that we’ve seen these adorable little felt hearts layered into a tree shape on The Lettered Cottage, we’re extremely glad that we know they’re a possibility! We adore the idea of putting a sparkly foam heart on top where you’d put a star at Christmas.
2. Quilted Valentine heart pillow
Are you a sewing enthusiast with a penchant for quilting and you’re looking for something fun and simple to celebrate your favourite holiday with? Then check out this quilted heart pillow cover from Craft, Sew, Create! It’s easier than you might expect to make, right down to the adorably ruffled edge.
3. Ombre yarn letters
Are you looking for something awesome to make with your kids that will still make lovely looking decor but is easy and fun for them to do with you? Perhaps you’re a knitter and you’re looking for a way to use up some of your spare yarn stash? Then yarn wrapping crafts are the perfect idea! My Sister’s Suitcase suggests wrapping cardboard or foam letters in Valentine’s colours to create a pretty pink and red ombre.
4. Valentine’s Day glitter letters
Do you love the idea of creating big festive letters that you can spell out Valentine’s Day messages with, but you’re not much of a yarn crafter and don’t feel like wrapping? Then try something a little more flashy instead! Tip Junkie suggests covering your letters top to bottom, back to front, in pure glitter. We love the red sparkle here but think it would also look pretty in pink!
