What Can I Make for Valentine’s Day?
If paper crafts are your thing, then these heart paper flowers are a super lovely project! And if you own a hobby cutting machine (Cricut, Scan n Cut etc) all the better! Of course, you can cut out the heart shapes with scissors, a cutting machine is just faster 😉.
Grab some coloured paper and glue, get your kids involved too, and start making these gorgeous flowers for Valentine’s Day.
Find all the details to make these Heart Paper Flowers at Happiness is Homemade.

This tote bag with hearts projects is great for sewing fans because there’s surely some fabric and/or ribbon scraps hiding in your stash pile to use! 😅 AND you don’t even need to sew the bag itself, just the heart detail!
The heart in this tutorial was made using strips of ribbon, but there’s no reason why you can’t use fabric strips instead. Just get creative!

Stop! Don’t throw out those wine corks! This one’s probably more of a Valentine’s craft for the grown-ups, but if your child is OK with a hot glue gun, there’s no reason they can’t get creative with this project too.
Wine corks? Check! Hot glue gun? Check! It’s really that easy to get crafting this February! Psst! This would make a eye-catching table or gift basket centrepiece.
See how you can make these hearts too at Sand and Sisal.
The perfect blend of working with wood and textiles (threads, to be exact, but you get the idea 😅), this is a beautiful Valentine’s craft project for adults and kids (with some supervision) alike! And because the strings criss-cross in all directions, every one of these is entirely unique!
Make your string art as large or small as you wish, grab a piece of wood, a pile of nails and some wool or embroidery thread and get winding and criss-crossing!

This gorgeous glass beard heart hanger is not only a suncatcher but also an eyecatcher! Kids will love making this craft project as much as adults and it’s completely safe because there’s no hot glue gun involved here.
While it needs to be set aside for a couple of days to completely dry, the project itself doesn’t take long to put together and aside from your choice of beads (plastic or glass both work well) you’ll oble need glue and aluminium foil! Easy!
