Inspire the kid inside and craft your heart out with these fun valentine craft ideas to decorate for your Valentine’s Day party or to gift to friends and family. These can be fun valentine crafts for adults, but kids can help with these projects too! 

DIY Ring Plate

Shape molding clay into a shallow heart-shaped dish to hold wrapped foil hearts or gift to a friend to hold rings or other jewelry. Add a decorative edge and add a personal touch with their initials or a quote in the center using a skewer or sculpting tool. Bake clay according to provided directions. 

Candy Hearts Garland

Surprise your loved ones with a garland of multi-colored candy heart printouts with heartfelt sayings. Use brightly colored bakers’ twine to string the hearts or clip them on with tiny clothespins.

Heart-Shaped Wreaths

Cover heart-shaped grapevine wreaths from your local craft store with faux flowers to decorate each room in your house. 

Thumbprint Heart Jars

After painting mason jars in two coats of acrylic paint in a light color, let them dry overnight in between coats. Distress the paint with sandpaper once completely dry and use your thumbprints to create sweet hearts with paint in a darker color. Use the personalized jars to hold a bouquet of your choice. Alternatively, skip the two coats and just decorate the jar with your thumbprints and use for a votive holder. 

Valentine’s Day Bird Feeders

Try this easy DIY gift for those hungry birds. This is a fun activity to do with your kids. Punch a hole and add a pretty ribbon so they can be hung from trees in your yard. This craft is fun and functional!

Yarn-Wrapped Hearts

This is one of many great valentine crafts for adults and kids. It is also a great way to use up all that leftover yarn. All you need is yarn, cardboard, scissors, clear tape, and a pencil. Draw a heart shape onto cardboard, cut it out and string yarn around it. Before continuing to wrap the heart, thread the loose end under the strung yarn and tie a knot. Secure this with clear tape. Keep wrapping the yarn in all directions until you are happy with how your heart looks. Then, tie a knot. 

Love Letter Sugar Cookies

Bake up your favorite sugar cookies, ice them with royal icing, and use food-safe markers to write a love letter to your special one. Royal icing is ideal for this idea because it will create a firm surface for you to write on. To make royal icing, blend 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons meringue powder, and 3 tablespoons water using a mixer set on low speed for 12 minutes.

Tic-Tac-Toe Craft Snack

This one is a craft and snack all in one. Break full-size graham crackers in half to make square mini tic-tac-toe games using two different colors of candy conversation hearts. Melt candy discs or mix up your favorite frosting, place frosting in a piping bag (or make your own with sandwich bags) and draw two vertical lines and two horizontal lines on each graham cracker. Let dry for 5-10 minutes.
