Valentine’s Day Craft & Party Ideas
It never fails – Valentine’s Day rolls around and I have planned nothing. If you are in the same predicament, don’t stress! Today I am sharing some quick and easy party ideas that you can make yourself or even have fun creating with the kids, especially if they are having a classroom Valentine’s Day party or a small party with friends at home.
Before I get to the Valentine’s Day projects – if you are not crafty or just don’t have the time to make anything yourself, be sure to stop by my shops (click on any of the links below) –
I have all the favors you need for Valentine’s Day and to help you with decorating an upcoming party. Here is a sneak peek of the new Valentine’s Decor I am offering in my shops –
Pinwheels are also perfect for any celebration.
Now for some easy diy projects that you can make yourself at home.
Heart Kisses – So easy to make with some punched or die cut hearts and glued wood picks to the back. Easy peasy!
Mini heart Valentine’s cards – I’ll actually have a full detailed tutorial next week on how to make these little cards. Come back next week for the full project how to!
Hanging heart streamer – so simple to create with strips of cardstock paper glued together, folded at the base and rolled ends (use a pencil to roll and shape these) and then glue your two rolled pieces together to make the heart shape. You can add your string as you make each heart but I find it easier to just use a threaded embroidery needle to thread all the hearts together after you have made them.
More hanging hearts and even easier to make by punching or cutting 6 hearts, folded in half and glue each half side together- don’t forget to add your looped string in the middle before gluing your last heart together.
Flying high with you. . . Valentine Smartie favors made with lifesavers, stick gum, and Smartie rolls into sweet treat airplanes! How fun to make with the kids too – some glue and rubber bands are all you need.
Owl Pillow Boxes- so easy to decorate. You can even recycle and use shaped paper towel rolls for these too.
Give a special gift inside a beautifully decorated box for your Valentine.
A Unicorn Valentine card box would be so fun at a classroom party and will hold all those exchanged Valentine cards. Just use any box and cover with white wrapping paper or layers of tissue paper and add some eyes, ears and of course a unicorn horn at the top! Remember to cut a slit or hole at the top for slipping all those cards inside!
Many more ideas for simply ways to incorporate Smarties into your Valentine favors or projects too. Thanks for stopping by the blog!
