Craft Roundup: More Valentine's Day Projects for Families

A bit more than a week away: We're officially in the Valentine's Day homestretch – which means we're in red, pink and white crafting overdrive! If you haven't gotten a jump yet, never fret. This week's roundup offers gift and decorating ideas for your family to make Heart Day 2013 one to remember – for parents and kids alike. Click through the photo gallery for links that'll teach you how to make a pretty felt heart valentine tree, cardboard airplane (love takes flight!), paper heart locket and lovely little hearts to string up and hang wherever you please.

 

Felt Heart Valentine Trees

Lolly Jane loves making felt trees, so this batch received the Valentine's Day treatment! Sitting atop candlesticks, these dainty delights look like something out of a Candy Land board game, don't they?

 

Cardboard Airplane

Candy, cards – yawn. If you give your kids a gift for Valentine's Day, why not get more inventive with this concept from Small Fry blog? Present them with an upcycled cardboard costume that also serves as a fun make-believe toy

 

Tree Heart Installation

While the weather is a bit shaky for us Michiganders to hang paper hearts outside right now, you can surprise your family with this installation in the kitchen or the family on Valentine's Day morning. Get the details at Oh Happy Day.
