Valentine's Day Ideas

I admit that I don't really decorate for any other holidays besides Christmas and a little bit at Halloween.  But, I've seen so many cute Valentine's ideas on Pinterest, I wanted to share them with you.

These wax hearts are from Martha Stewart.  Just melt some crayon shavings between two pieces of wax paper and cut into heart shapes.

I have had a Valentine's craft party for the kids in the past and they love to make Valentine's crafts.  I think any of these ideas would be fun for kids.

Pipe cleaners twisted into heart shapes to make a garland.

More heart garlands.

Another take on a garland.

You can even take your heart garland and wrap it around a candle.

If you have more time on your hands, glue sequins onto some purchased letters.  I bet this would be cute with gold thumb tacks instead of sequins too.

Roll up lots of felt flowers and attach them to a wreath.

I might remove the felt flowers from my all-season yarn wreath and replace them with hearts, like this.

This card would be super cute for the grandparents.

Pass these cuties out in class.

Make these for your Valentine's Day party or for your Valentine.

Have you started thinking about Valentine's Day?  Do you decorate for V-day?  Do you have any special traditions?

Oh my these are all so cute. I even went and pinned a few on pintrest. I don't really decorate for valentines day either but I'm thinking a few of those could be used all year. Like the love sign for a kids bedroom, or master. And the little heart book page garland for my daughter room. Thanks for sharing. I hope you get to come by my site today too, I'm having my first giveaway!

Great roundup of ideas, Suzy!
I think it's fun to decorate a bit for Valentines. I use some of my red decorations from Christmas, and of course bake yummy things with the excuse of Valentine's Day! :)

Now that my daughter is 13, she doesn't care about decorating for any holiday besides Christmas. We do a lot for that, but nothing for other holidays. We like to make cards and treats for teachers, friends and neighbors. I love red and pink together! You've found lots of fun Valentines crafts!
