6 Easy DIY Valentine's Craft Ideas

6 Easy DIY Valentines Craft Ideas

When you work with crafting supplies all day long, it’s easy to be inspired by the adorable products all around us.

This year Valentine’s Day will be quite a bit different for so many (as much of the past year has been!). All the more reason to celebrate in a special way with your kids! Crafting some special Valentine’s cards for the people your kids love is an easy way to get one-on-one time with them, but even more, it's a way for your child to send LOVE to someone. There are so many children (and adults frankly) that could use a smile, and we love that we can teach our kids empathy and care for others in doing something so simple.

Better yet? All the supplies needed are EASY to get, either online from us, by ordering paper or blank cards online, or finding your supplies at your local dollar store. Nothing too fancy here, and less sugar going around!

So plug in that glue gun, get some scissors and tape and let's get ready to send some smiles to your loved ones ;)

Bee Mine, Valentine

If Valentine’s isn’t the most acceptable time to send cheesy card lines we don’t know when is ;)

Bee Mine Valentines Day card DIY

For this card you’ll need to print out our Bee Card PDF on your printer at home. If you can find yellow cardstock this will make your card much more sturdy - those bee accent beads aren’t small!

1. After printing your Bee Mine Valentine PDF, cut out your Valentine’s along the dotted line, making note of where the fold lines are.

2. Fold the card along the fold lines. The first fold will be UP and the second fold will go down to create an accordion shape.

3. On the first panel, hold your bee bead (We no longer carry the bee beads in these images but we do have a Brand New Cara & Co designed Bee bead!) and mark a small line with a pencil in front and behind the bee. These lines will be where your string goes through.

4. Using a crafting knife, cut that small line.

5. Take a short length of cord (probably no longer than 4”) and melt the tips so that they are well melted and hard. We will use the hard tips to pierce through the little cuts.

6. Going from the back side, push your string through the bottom cut, through the bee bead, and back through the card with the top cut.

7. Flip your card over and hot glue your cords down and flat in the middle. Trim any excess cord.

8. Run a line of hot glue along the top, outside and bottom edge on the back side of your bee panel and stick it down to the back of the second panel. This will make your accordion shape into a card and hide the strings!

Friendship Bracelets

Do you remember making these in grade school in the 90s?? Or are we ageing ourselves… Either way, friendship bracelets should make a comeback and we’re here for it!

Taking some of our soft and colorful Jersey Cord, braid a couple lengths of cording! We finished ours off by hot gluing them together at the knots, but if you have a better way of doing it, more power to you!

We cut out some cute little cards, and made little notches to hold the bracelets in place - easy peasy, and something to keep!

You’re Picture Perfect

Yep, you are! And yep, we continue the cheesy Valentine’s card theme ;)

It couldn’t be easier. Order a couple of our small camera pendants, and download and cut out your card from our provided PDF (on cardstock if possible!). Fold the card in half, gluing the front to the back. Flip it over and glue or attach your camera pendant to the other side, centered on the heart in the middle.

Sheep Valentine’s Card

We WOOLEY love this idea… *insert snort*

After this blog post we PROMISE we’ll be done with the Valentine’s Day commentary!

This one is super cute and super easy. Grab 9 of our soft Ivory felt balls for each card. We found some pre-cut blank cards at our local dollar store to base our craft on. Draw out the head of a sheep (For some, easier said than done! Copy our drawing if you want!), and two black feet in the rough area you think sheep would have feet ;)

Hot Glue your felt balls as close together as you can, filling out the shape of a sheep. We found it worked well to off-set the middle row slightly.

After making your scribe, print out our PDF recipe card on cardstock and cut it out. Sign your name, maybe a little note on the lines provided, and use your favourite washi tape to fix the scribe to your card. Super cute. Super easy.

Only Eyes for You

Okay - our LAST cheesy Valentine’s idea. We SEE that you’re growing tired of them…tee hee!

Valentines Craft Ideas - Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

We l o v e our cute wood sunglass pendants! They’re a great unfinished beech wood option for the teething baby in your life, but they’re also an amazing crafting base. Because they’re unfinished sanded wood, they paint LIKE A DREAM. They soak up acrylic paint and end up with a buttery finish after the paint has dried. Paint them, leave them unfinished - whatever suits you and your kiddos!

Print our PDF on cardstock paper. Cut out along the dotted lines.

Valentines Craft For Kids

After painting or customizing your sunglasses the way you’d like (and allowing them time to dry), place them on your cardstock. If you want to add googly eyes, take a pencil and mark the centre of each sunglass frame.

Hot glue your google eyes in place. Finish by gluing or attaching your sunglasses to the front of the card.
