Show your love this Valentine’s Day with cards, home decor, and quilts that will melt any heart.
Use your empty wooden spools to create a heartwarming wall decoration. Spray-paint a wooden heart plaque your desired color. Determine the various diameters of your wooden spool tops. Punch circles from patterned paper in sizes to match the spool tops and glue them in place. Adhere spools to the plaque with the tallest at the top and shortest at the bottom. Add patterned paper to thin wooden dowels to fill the spaces between spools.
A tiny stamped phrase and cute-as-can-be punched paper hearts make a quick Valentine's card. Stitch a matching heart to the envelope and add decorative paper trim for a special accent.
These cute craft projects make great shelf decorations for Valentine's Day. To craft the collage, cut out repeating shapes from fabric (we used birds and hearts in various sizes) and use spray adhesive to mount them on white cardstock, then frame the embellished cardstock. For the small embroidery project, trace a design on a store-bought canvas, then backstitch the design.
Whip up a batch of mini treat bags in record time. Use tiny clothespins to clip fabric or canvas hearts to the front of paper bags, then embellish the hearts with stickers or embroidery.
Tell your valentine that you have the hots for him with this clever candy card. Attach a square of notebook paper to the middle of a square card. Cut the words "you're hot" from a magazine or newspaper page and glue them to a circle punched from white paper. Attach the embellished circle to the notebook paper. Place cinnamon-flavored candy pieces on the notebook paper square and cover with a thin plastic sheet. Topstitch the plastic to the card with red thread, overlapping stitches.
To make a garland of hearts, cut an even number of heart shapes from fabric scraps. Layer the hearts in pairs and attach pairs of hearts together with fusible web. Punch small holes in the sides of the hearts and tie them together with ribbon.
Add a sweet fabric cupcake to a Valentine’s card. To create the cupcake, cut a circle from cream felt, then cut the circle in half with pinking shears or rotary cutter with a scalloped blade. Stitch a half circle with the pinked edge overlapping a piece of crimped pink paper. Adhere the cupcake to a card, top with a paper heart, and add a special message underneath.
Home is where the heart is. Use precut 10-inch squares and fat quarters to create a reversible pillow that reflects this. Appliqué house and heart shapes, then frame each appliquéd block with stripe and tone-on-tone borders.
