Free Valentine's Day DIY Crafts for Adults

The winter solstice holidays are over, and it’s nearing that day of love; Valentine’s Day!

Think of the ways we show each other love on Valentine’s Day; spending money on flowers, cards, and chocolates, to name a few.

Do you know that Americans spend nearly $30 billion on Valentine gifts to show their love???

Well, you don’t have to add to that statistic!  On this page we have brought you so many Valentine’s craft ideas that you can make and gift to your lovey! 

I’ve always loved making homemade gifts for any time of the year.  But what better time to put all of your love into making gifts than Valentine's Day?

I had my kids make their own Valentines to give out at school each year, much to their dislike.  But here you can find wonderful Valentine’s crafts for adults to make!

And I am so sure you will like these Valentine’s crafts much more than my kids liked the ones I forced upon them!  These Valentine’s craft ideas can be given as gifts to your sweetie, but they also make wonderful treats for yourself to keep!

We have a wide range of ideas for Valentine's crafts; just look at all of these types of things made of hearts, cupids, and roses- the symbols of love that you can create!

Valentine's Craft Wreaths

I love to decorate my front door with something for every season or holiday!  We have a full rundown of wreaths and other decorations to hang to show the love on Valentine's Day!

The gorgeous and frugal Dollar Store Valentine’s Wreath will look so pretty as it greets guests to your home!  Don’t miss the wreath made from conversation hearts!  

Did you know that weirdly enough, conversation hearts were the result of a machine invented to make medical lozenges?  Yes, you heard it!  

The pharmacist who invented the machine shifted his focus from making sore throat lozenges to making candy!  Oliver Chase, the inventor, founded the New England Confectionery Company, now known as Necco! 

The many other decorations to hang, like the ones made from heart pallets, heart shaped picture frames, and the rustic heart decoration using wood and twine will add lovely Valentine decor to your home.

Take a look at all of the wonderful garlands we have for you!  The Cute Valentine’s Heart Garland is made from recycled denim, and it can be used for more than just Valentine’s day!

We at are all about recycling, reusing and upcycling. Browse around and see what other ideas we have in that department.

If you're interested in repurposing denim, as in this garland, we have the ideas for you!
