Friday Favorites–Valentine’s Day, Part 1

I doubt there is a more craft-friendly holiday than Valentine’s Day.  The projects tend to be a little on the simpler side and don’t involve a ton of supplies.  Kids can make many of them.  And they’re all about love, doesn’t that just make you feel all squishy inside?

Sometimes a craft using food is confusing.  It’s edible, but too pretty to actually eat.  I’m afraid these Sweet Gumdrop Roses from Craftberry Bush fall into that category.  But totally worth it.

My kids are past the school Valentines age.  These iPhone Valentine printables from Living Locurto make me wish that wasn’t so.  I might have to make these for them.

These Valentine Bookmarks from Holiday Crafts and Creations would be a perfect reusable Valentine to make with the kiddos.

If you can still find candy canes, these Valentine Candy Cane Lollipops from Pleasant Home would be the perfect way to use them up.  In fact, I’m pretty sure I still have some in a cup in my kitchen…

I’ve seen several of these embroidered love notes made to look like notebook paper, but this ps…I love you version from Flamingo Toes is one of my favorites.

We have a giant container of old crayons in our house.  I think Pretty Window Valentine Hearts from Quiltish are the perfect use for them.

I remember making these candy airplanes when I was a kid, but we never thought to take the wrapper off the Lifesaver roll.  It gives these Valentine Candy Airplanes from Shabby Chic Crafts a whole new look.

These BFF Puzzle Necklaces from Speckless are brilliant.  My daughter doesn’t usually have just one person she would call her best friend – there are several.  With this project, she can have a whole box full!  This could even be a fun classroom game if you made them for each kid and had them assemble the puzzle.
