No matter what your romantic situation is, Valentine’s Day is always a great day to celebrate all of the people you love in your life, including your family, your friends, and your partner. With this celebration comes the opportunity for fun crafts and home decor ideas to liven up your home and make your family’s day fun and joyful. You don’t have to put much time or money into creating a great Valentine’s Day – all of these craft and decor ideas are simple and easy to do.
Homemade stamps are actually very easy to create with a items that you already have in your kitchen or bathroom. For example, you can easily create a heart-shaped stamp just by bending a cardboard roll into the shape of a heart, then dipping it in paint. This gives you all sorts of easy creative possibilities – your kids can use it to make their own artful Valentine’s Day projects, or you can use it to make cute cards for your favorite people.
Ceramic kitchenware is actually very easy to make if you have access to an oven that can adequately glaze your crafts. To make a fun keepsake that you can keep using after Valentine’s Day, have the members of your family dip their thumbs in red paint, then use their thumbprints to create a heart shape on the mug. Use black paint to label each family member, the year, and add some fun Valentine’s Day quotes as well. Then, just add glaze and bake to make an adorable craft. Be sure to buy an at-home ceramic glaze kit for safety.
Chain of Hearts
Looking for an easy way to liven up your kitchen or living room for Valentine’s Day? Create an adorable garland that you can hang from the ceiling to make the room cheerful and loving. Go to the craft store and pick our fabrics or paper samples that make you think of Valentine’s Day, and then cut them into even rectangular strips. Fold the strips in half, then staple the ends together in two curves to make a heart. You can then continue adding these hearts in a chain to create an absolutely adorable decor piece in no time.
If you are looking for a cute craft for you and your sweetheart to do together, then this is the perfect choice for you. You can literally carve your initials into a tree that you can keep forever. To create these, find a log (you can buy one or just go outside), and then use a saw to cut it into coaster-sized rounds. Then, take some paint and write your initials on the log, and add any cute heart designs that appeal to you. These will be the perfect reminder of your experiences together as a couple whenever you drink your morning coffee or tea.
