Made with love – your guide to Valentine’s Day DIY

It’s often said home is where the heart is and we know it’s true – so here’s how to show your loved ones how much they’re adored this Valentine’s Day with crafts and edible treats to make in your very own home!

If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day event, be sure to check out Modern Moments for printable cake toppers and the like – all gorgeous and so easy to print off at home!

A Valentine’s Day craft hunt around the web revealed these super sweet necklaces from the very talented sisters at Eighteen25. Wood beads, ribbon and paint are the only materials you require which are all easily obtained at your local craft store. I have this one bookmarked for a Sunday afternoon activity!

Kids love craft, especially craft at home when mum, dad or nanna are involved! Add to your home decor with a stunning window display of hearts, Martha Stewart style, or a floating heart garland for a doorway – see how at How About Orange.

Children will be only too keen to lend a hand in the kitchen to create these sprinkle encrusted spiral biscuits from Sprinkle Cakes blog, or find a heart shaped cookie cutter and tackle chocolate Valentine’s sandwich cookies from Glorious Treats. If the February heat has you wanting to steer clear of the oven (or you’re not a biscuit fan) you ought to try Tablespoon‘s jelly pop recipe (pictured below).

Eighteen 25 suggests a great gift for your child’s teacher could be this made-with-love cookie jar and I couldn’t agree more – who doesn’t love a melt in your mouth biscuit complete with gorgeous packaging? If your little one really wants to share the love, these cute stitched heart bookmarks are an easy and inexpensive option – you’ll find tutorial details at Little Lovelies.

Now this glorious rich red Valentine’s Day heart wreath perhaps isn’t for the feint hearted. The Idea Room tutorial shows the cutting out of quite a few felt circles, testing your craft commitment, but the end product is certainly worth the time and effort!

We wish you all the very best in your Valentine’s Day DIY ventures – let us know what you’ll be making!
