DIY craft ideas for Valentine's Day
Whether you do or you don't, we have put together a selection of Valentine's Day crafts that you can make for your loved one. From crafty beer cases to recycled crafts and reclaimed wood signs. Making your own valentine's gift shows how much you care, and you can have lots of fun making your own creation!
Treat yourself to a couple of Sharpie pens and have fun in so many ways. You can use Sharpies to write on ceramics and glass to add your own designs, or send a personal message.
Don't just give your guy a 6-pack - give him a pack wrapped with love! All you need is glue and wrapping paper to add a loving touch to your valentine's favourite beverage. Wrap scrapbook paper around the cardboard case using double-sided sellotape to secure and then add a gift tag. For something a tad more personal, what about his very own monogrammed beer tote. Buy PAR pine at your local Builders Warehouse and use a Dremel VersaTip or soldering iron to embellish with his initials, name or your personal message.
Buy an inexpensive frame at your local Mr Price Home [or make your own] and paint with Rust-Oleum gloss apple red. Stick on a few cut-out hearts and add your heartfelt sentiments that can be printed out on your PC printer, or written freehand.
Use a canvas dropcloth, or affordable cotton fabric, to make up a 'Love' cushion for your valentine. Print out the full-size design on iron-on transfer paper that you will find a stationery, craft and hobby shops. Or get creative and use your own handmade stencils to paint on a design.
Who doesn't love chocolate or red velvet cupcakes! Make your own from scratch, buy cupcake mix, or even purchase ready-made cupcakes and then add edible hearts and some sprinkles to present to your valentine in a gift box.
We have plenty of recycled craft ideas here on Home-Dzine that would make the perfect Valentine's gift. Whether you make tin can luminaries or chicken wire baskets, recycling if a fun way to turn trash into treasure.
A piece of reclaimed timber or driftwood makes the perfect backdrop for a candle holder or wire sign.
