Here are some quick and easy crafts that I came up with for Valentine’s Day this year!
All you need are doilies, a couple of different pieces of scrapbook paper, and ribbon or twine.
1. Doily Heart Garland
I cut out hearts from scrapbook paper and glued them to the middle of the doily. Then I used twine to string them together. If you see that the doilies are starting to curl from the glue put a book or something flat over them to flatten them out.
If you make vertical heart garland you might want to put a doily on either side of the twine, because they tend to spin when they are hanging vertically.
2. Reasons Why I Love You Tree
The branches are from Pier 1 and the vase was something that I already had. I used leftover scrapbook paper and twine to make the hearts. My husband and I wrote different reasons why we love each other on the back of the hearts and then hung them. I can’t wait to continue this tradition. I am thinking that each year we will hang some old hearts and some new hearts!
3. Love Banner
This craft was made out of scrapbook paper and ribbon. I cut some of the pieces into triangles and used a hole puncher on the top to punch holes for the ribbon to be strung through. I am terrible at drawing letters so I printed out letters in a large font and then cut them out and used them to trace letters on the other pieces of scrapbook paper.
If you have leftover supplies…
Overlap leftover doilies around a candle and tie a piece of twine around them to hold it together. It should look something like this…
