DIY Your Way Into Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day

Remember when Valentine’s Day was all about making fun heart-shaped crafts? Armed with pink and red construction paper, glitter, scissors, and glue,  you could create some lovely one-of-a-kind cards and gifts. Recapture the childlike magic of the holiday with some handmade creations you’ll love to make and give! Check out these crafts and others from Country Living Magazine.

Votive Candle Holders

With some ever-versatile mason jars, spray paint, and glitter, you can turn a plain jar into a pretty, Valentine’s-inspired candle holder. Use vinyl stickers from a craft store to make your own design before covering the jar with spray paint, spray adhesive, and finishing with a sprinkling of glitter. Set a votive or tea light candle inside the jar and you’ve got a functional and sparkly Valentine’s Day gift that everyone will love! Check out the tutorial for more detailed steps.

Rose Wreath

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas, you know. You can highlight any holiday when you adorn your front door with a wreath that evokes the spirit of any season. For Valentine’s Day, try your hand at making a heart-shaped wreath of vivid red roses. No worries about it having a short shelf life – these realistic roses are made with red tissue paper. Learn how to bring this delightful decor to life and gather your supplies to get started!

Lipstick Art

Create an original canvas worthy of framing – even if your art skills aren’t up to par. Using bright lipsticks of varying hues, anyone can make this multi-colored heart art. This craft is a great use for old lipsticks taking up real estate in your makeup drawer. But if you don’t have any spares, you can pick up inexpensive tubes at your local dollar store. Follow the instructions for a surprisingly simple Valentine’s Day masterpiece.

Conversation Hearts Bouquets

Love them or hate them, the little edible pastel hearts are the unofficial candy of Valentine’s Day. Pair them with fresh flowers and you’ve got a lovely display that evokes the essence of this celebration of love. All you need is a small vase, a glass, a ribbon, candy hearts, and your favorite flowers to create an adorable floral treat your recipients will love.
