From handcrafted cards to homemade gifts, baked goods, and beautiful assortments of chocolates, what’s not to love about Valentine’s Day? 

It’s the perfect time to share love with friends and family while having a lot of fun in the process! Ready to get crafty?

Here are two simple crafts to bring the Valentine’s Day vibes to your home!

Candy Heart Bouquets 

We love these easy candy heart bouquets from Smart School House.

Supplies:

  • 1 larger vase
  • 1 smaller vase (make sure it fits inside the larger vase)
  • 2 bags of candy hearts or “conversation hearts”
  • pink ribbon
  • water
  • flowers
  • scissors

Directions

  1. Cut flowers down to size
  2. Fill the smaller vase with water
  3. Place the smaller vase inside the larger vase
  4. Add candy hearts around the outside of the smaller vase
  5. Arrange flowers inside the smaller vase

Glitter Hugs & Kisses Sign

These XO letter signs from Make Life Lovely are super easy and glamorous!

Supplies:

  1. Letters X and O
  2. Mod Podge
  3. Foam brush
  4. Red glitter
  5. Clear glossy spray sealer (I used Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze)

1.  Apply a medium coat of Mod Podge to one side of one of your letters using your foam brush.  Sprinkle red glitter ALL OVER the Mod Podged area, and gently shake off the excess.

2.  Repeat with every un-glittered area of each letter.  I did the tops and sides, let it dry, and then did the backs.  You want to make sure that it is completely dry before doing the back, otherwise you will rub off the glitter with your fingers.

3.  When the letters are all dry, you can go back and add a little more glue to any spots that look “patchy,” sprinkle some more glitter on top, and gently shake off the excess.

Now you have two pretty letters, but you need to seal the glitter on so that you don’t leave a sparkly trail wherever your letters go!

4.  Spray one coat of clear glossy sealer on all sides of the letters, front and sides first, let them dry, and then do the backs.  This will ensure that all of the glitter actually stays on your letters.  It dried so clear and shiny you wouldn’t even know it was on there!
