Valentine’s Day Crafts
If nothing says “I love you” like a homemade card or gift, then there’s no holiday more terrifying for the non-crafty folks out there than Valentine’s Day. We can get a pass on homemade Christmas gifts because of the crazy rush of the holiday season; but February 14 arrives in the midst of winter, when we’ve been housebound from the weather—especially this year. So all that time cooped up at home means plenty of time to make Valentine’s crafts, right? Well, I’m a crafty person, and Valentine’s Day still manages to sneak up on me every year, and I always find myself scrambling for ideas and supplies.
So whether you’re a novice crafter just dipping in your toes for the first time, or a seasoned pro who’s comfortable diving right in to the deep end, this post is all about Valentine’s Day crafts!
But before we start talking projects, let’s talk about supplies first. There’s no doubt that the amazing range of craft supplies available these days makes crafting so much easier, more fun, and more versatile than it’s ever been, regardless of your crafting experience.
And the best news is that Tuesday Morning stocks an incredible array of crafting supplies—from scrapbooking to quilting to needlework—at prices that will make your jaw drop. On a recent trip to my local Tuesday Morning, I scored a couple of fabric fat quarter bundles, some Thickers alphabet stickers, three 6×6 patterned paper packs, and a Bucilla cross-stitch kit, all for less than $15. I’m always able to find products from my favorite brands—like Tim Holtz, Tattered Angels, Aleene’s, Me & My Big Ideas, We R Memory Keepers, and more—on the craft aisle at Tuesday Morning.
So check out some of my favorite Valentine craft ideas from our latest Pinterest board, run to Tuesday Morning for some supplies, and have fun getting crafty!
The other day, I happened to see a skein of pink yarn at my Tuesday Morning that would have been perfect for making little crocheted heart appliques like these! Wouldn’t they look cute sewn onto a little girl’s hat or headband, or even on a cardigan sweater?
Tim Holtz’s designs are always beautiful to look at, thanks to the detailing and texture, and this Valentine’s tag is no exception.
I love this cute picture frame! What a fun way to use up scrapbook paper scraps, too! And this is even a craft that kids can help with, too.
I hope you’ve been inspired to try a new craft this month! So tell us: what will you be making for your special someone this Valentine’s Day?
