Best Happy Valentines Day Crafts

Happy Valentines Day Crafts

The best gifts are the ones that come from the heart, and there’s no better day to show some heart than on Valentine’s Day. Just so you know, Valentine’s Day crafts aren’t just for kids (though, of course, there are plenty of great V-Day crafts for little ones), and as well as serving as perfect Valentine’s Day decor, homemade crafts make thoughtful gifts for your loved ones, too. Whether you choose to keep them in your own house or give them away as Valentine’s Day gifts from the heart, these easy Valentine’s Day crafts for adults are guaranteed to make someone smile.

In addition to a heartfelt message inside a DIY Valentine’s Day card, these easy-to-make crafts are one of the best ways to show you care on February 14. Try putting together a heart-shaped “rose wreath” to welcome all of your wintertime guests with flair and flourish, or craft a Valentine’s Day mason jar for holding anything from beauty supplies to cutlery. Alternatively, make a few temporary (but reusable!) party supplies, like a stunning pink Valentine’s Day wreath or a pair of bark-inspired Valentine’s candle holders. No matter your crafting skill level, there’s a DIY Valentine’s Day craft for everyone, and you’re sure to have a good time reliving those messier, more hands-on Valentine’s Day celebrations of your childhood. Here are the best DIY Valentine’s Day gifts you can make this year.

Heart-shaped Cookie Cutter Wind Chimes

Transform humble cookie cutters into cheery wind chimes that are ideal for hanging above a bed or on the front porch.

To make:
 Fashion a 10- to 12-inch length of wire into a heart shape; wrap with red twine, set aside. Make a clay heart with oven-baked modeling clay; punch a hole in the top for hanging and write a phrase (if desired) before baking, and set aside. Punch holes in the crook and point of 3 large, 3 medium, and 3 small heart-shaped cookie cutters. Cut three lengths of twine. Working with one length at a time, thread a large, medium, and small cookie cutter onto twine, knotting above and below each cutter so that it stays in place. Repeat with remaining twine and cookie cutters. Wrap twine lengths (being sure the hearts are facing the correct direction) around wire heart; gather twine lengths at the top and tie in a knot for hanging. Knot twine lengths at the bottom and trim. Thread a short length of twine through the ceramic heart and tie to knot at the bottom of the wine chime, and hang.
