If gift-giving is my love language (and it is!), gifts that are handmade are my highest form of expressing that love – right up there with haiku and sonnets. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner but it’s not too late to make one of these 10 Valentine Crafts for a simple but special way to say, “I love you!”
Read on for 10 Valentine Crafts that are fun, easy, and will let your special someone know how much you care!
1. Valentine’s Day DIY Canvas Heart Art
These adorable Canvas Heart Art pieces from the Design Improvised blog are quick and easy to create and would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift for someone you love. Creating a whole collection is a wonderful way to dress up a dull wall in your office, sewing room, or studio space. Get the tutorial here!
2. Lace Votive Candles
Don’t consider yourself crafty? Then these lace votive candle holders are perfect for you! They’re so simple that you honestly don’t need a tutorial. Just get yourself some clear votive candleholders and glue some lace around them – done! Here’s a link to some examples on Pinterest to get you inspired!
3. Valentine’s Day Mason Jar Bouquets
Everybody loves getting flowers on Valentine’s Day. However, sending flowers to your valentine may not fit into your budget. Instead, pick up some pretty but inexpensive blooms at the local market (Trader Joe’s is my favorite flower spot!) and arrange them in a sweet mason jar vase. This tutorial from A Night Owl will show you how easy it is!

With just a few basic supplies and an hour of your time, you’ll be able to craft adorable, unique cards for all the people you love! Here’s the link.
5. Chocolate-Dipped Valentine Brownies
Okay, sure. Brownies aren’t technically considered a craft. But plenty of us express our creativity in the kitchen.

7. Hand-sewn Sweetheart Bookmarks
These darling bookmarks are easy to make and are an ideal way to say, “I love you,” to the booklover in your life. Though this Valentine Craft from The Craft Train is geared more toward kids, it’s definitely cute enough to give to grownup Valentines too. Here’s the guide.
