Craft Roundup: Valentine's Day Hearts, Love Bugs and More

Show your kids the love by having a bit of family craft time before that Feb. 14 date sneaks up. From decor to dessert toppers, try these DIY projects.

Craft Roundup: Valentine's Day Hearts, Love Bugs and More

Valentine's Day is less than a month away! Have your children decided on their valentines yet? Are you buying already-made valentines with your child's favorite cartoon character on them, or are they making their very own DIY cards instead? No matter your approach, it's time to start thinking about Valentine's Day crafting, parties and decorations! This week's roundup will hopefully get you in the spirit.

 

Cereal Box Love Bugs for Valentine's Day

Here's a fun project for your kids that's approved for Valentine's Day and upcycling lovers! The Decorated Cookie created this fun project for Kix cereal, but any empty cereal box will work to make a flock of love bugs.

 

Mod Podged Confetti Heart

Creating some heart-themed art for your home during Valentine's season doesn't have to cost a lot. Take a cue from burlap+blue and try making your own decoupage piece of heart art for your family.

 

DIY Balloon Animal Cake Topper

While this cheery balloon animal is bright yellow, I'm thinking a color scheme of reds and pinks by Studio DIY would be great to top cakes for a party at your house or at your child's school for Valentine's Day.

 

Heart-Shaped Dessert Toppers

Hang on to your junk mail in the coming days. Thanks to Crafting a Green World, you've got a Valentine's Day project that will use up that junk and turn it into dessert toppers.
