Looking for simple Valentine’s Day projects? Why not make a pillow or a vase or artwork? Here are some projects to get yourself ready for Valentine’s Day.
Can I ask you a question? Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
Me? Not really.
It’s like I’m just recovering from Christmas and I’m still full of cheese and Christmas cookies and then I blink. All of a sudden Valentine’s Day shows up and I’m not ready.
I’m more of a spring-decorating girl.
But just between us? I do love a fun Valentine’s craft.
Something to make me feel like I’m all about love.
So today I’m sharing all the Valentine’s projects (almost all of them have just two supplies and I linked all the supplies to make them).
And because 2024 is the year I’m really trying to bring it with every post—I also put together a few of the CUTEST affordable Valentine’s Day home decor finds in case you didn’t have enough time for a project.
five super simple Valentine’s Day projects
Project #1: Love sign
This is the simplest of simple projects. It only really involves two supplies.
A bag of foil heart confetti.
A love sign.
I thought this project would also be so cute if you had a set of paper mache X’x and O’s.
- Open up the bag (total aside: you know this is a super easy craft if one of the instructions is “open the bag”) of valentine heart sequins.
- Coat the letter sign (one letter at a time) with glue.
- Sprinkle the sequin hearts.
- Press into place.
- Shake off the excess sequins.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 until your letter is completely covered with sequins.
- Repeat the entire process with the next letter. Continue gluing sequins until the entire word is covered.
- Let dry.
It looks like this.
Isn’t it so cute?
It’s going on my hutch with all my white dishes.
I made this in about an hour with a full conversation with my mother to keep me company.
(total aside: the only thing better than Valentine’s crafting? Valentine’s crafting with your mother.)
Project #2: This jute Valentine’s Day pillow
You can make it no-sew or sew.
I just cut these burlap hearts from red burlap and attached them to the pillow.
You can see the finished pillow and how I made it here.
It’s so cute you could actually leave it out through spring.
I was thinking about making another version of this pillow with just one large heart in the center and putting them both on the bench by the laundry room.
Just another Valentine’s Day crafting idea.
Project #3: Valentine’s Day artwork
This is SUCH a simple project.
All you need are stickers and a small canvas.
And your favorite Valentine’s Day saying.
I just placed them in a line on the canvas.
You can use lower case or upper case or a combination of the entire thing.
And then? I painted the entire thing. I painted the entire canvas gray, but you could always paint the entire canvas white and then go back and paint the top of the stickers red.
Project #4: DIY monogrammed burlap vase project
This is an oldie but a goodie.
It’s one of the very first projects I ever made for this blog (and I still love it).
It’s so easy to make and you can personalize it for someone special.
All you need is transfer paper and burlap.
Why not fill the vase with flowers for someone special and deliver it in time for Valentine’s Day?
Project #5: hand-stitched notebook
Make a hand-stitched notebook for someone special.
You can see how to make it here.
Then personalize the gift.
Add a note or a quote or a scripture on the first page. It’s a great way to share a little bit of your heart.
- this Valentine calendar
- this hooked heart pillow
- this red and white heart platter (there’s a 20% off coupon)
- these dishtowels
- this hooked LOVE pillow
- this heart string artwork
- this white, pink and red bead garland
- this X and O garland
- this heart doormat
- this giving heart plate
And if your Valentine’s Day schedule is full?
I’ve been shopping for you.
I linked a few of my favorite affordable finds. I think a little bit of Valentine’s decor can go a long way, so I kept it simple with accent pieces that can add a pop of color to the middle of winter.
Here’s to celebrating.
I think that’s what this post is really all about.
There are so many mini moments in life—whether it’s Valentine’s Day or a really good hair day with red lipstick and tulips—that need a little moment of their own.
Thanks for celebrating all of them with me….
….don’t tell everyone else but you’re my favorite. 🙂
