Tissue Paper Flower Wreath
A giant tissue paper flower wreath is perfect to show your Valentine’s Day spirit or for a V-Day party! It will add some brightness and cheer to any space. You can easily make it by cutting tissue paper into squares and arranging them to form a flower, then attaching the petals to a styrofoam wreath base.
Felt Heart Pockets
These felt heart pockets make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to store your mini chocolates and treats. Simply cut out felt hearts of different sizes, then use a needle and thread to stitch them together in a chain. Fill the pockets with candy or small gifts, and they’re ready to go!
Not only are these coasters super cute, but they’re also practical. You can use them year-round, not just during Valentine’s Day! Make sure to drink responsibly.
This easy craft is a fun way to show your love for trees, and all you need are some heart-shaped cutouts and white spray paint. Who knows, you might just be getting flowers so you need a place to put them.
Mason Jar Bouquets
If you receive flowers from your partner, you need a place to put them. And for those of us who love the idea of crafting but hate actually doing it, these bouquets require barely any creativity or skill—plus, they make a great gift for loved ones.
If you want a more realistic look, put on your favorite red lipstick and use your lips as a stamp. Simply blow up a balloon and press your lips against it to leave their mark. You can then paint over this to make an artsy, unique balloon bouquet.
Tree Stump Initials
Add a rustic touch to your home décor by carving your initials into a tree stump. This activity is such a fun one, including cutting the tree with an axe, taking it home, and carving away. Make sure to get permission and check the weather to avoid ruining your Valentine’s Day.
Flower Card or Flower Box
If your arts and craft project is more on the functional side, you can make a flower card or flower box instead of using tissue paper to make flowers. Simply cut out various shapes of tissue paper, attach them to one another in a chain, then tape this onto the front of your valentine’s gift box. Gifts are given all around so make the wrapping and experience better with an anonymous touch.
No matter what arts and craft activity you choose this Valentine’s Day, one thing is for sure: there’s no better way to show your love and creativity than with artsy hobbies! So pick your favorite idea and get crafting today.
