Yarn Wrapped Cardboard Hearts

One of the cutest valentines day crafts that I made for my partner the previous year were these yarn wrapped cardboard hearts. My partner loved these so much that he hung them on the wall hanging in his bedroom. And trust me when I say that these are terribly easy to make. When I say it, I mean it. You just need 5 materials in order to make these cute red hearts, most of which you might already have in your shelf  – pencil, cardboard, scissors, red yarn and a hot glue gun. I’m very good at drawing the perfect heart shape and it comes out perfect every time.

Yes! I’m lucky with that. But if you find it hard to get the perfect shape, you can always trace it out on the cardboard. Stick an end of your red yarn to the middle of your heart-shaped cardboard with hot glue. Now, all you do is just wrap the piece of cardboard with the yarn completely and when you’re done, secure the other end of the yarn with hot glue again. Viola! Your cute yarn wrapped cardboard heart is ready! Make as many as you want and shower your partner with these yarn wrapped cardboard hearts on Valentine’s Day!

He saw these stained glass suncatchers in a cafe where we went together on a date the other week and my husband so loved them that he asked the cafe-owner if they were available for sale.

Sponge Painted Hearts Valentine's Day Art Project

My little daughter who is a toddler said to me that she wants to make Valentine’s Day gifts for her father and she wants me to help her. Awww! Isn’t it so freaking cute of her! So, I decided to do a fun art activity with her to make some handmade gifts for her father. I mostly stay busy with work and this way I can spend some time with my daughter. I used white card stock papers, some red and pink paint and sponges to dab the paint on the card stock paper.

Cut a paper in heart shape that is comparatively smaller to the paper that you are going to paint on. Now stick the heart-shaped paper to the white card stock paper and paint it with red and pink paint using the sponges. We really enjoyed creating these Valentines Day crafts together and her father was so thrilled to receive these gifts from us. He couldn’t believe that we made it for him all by ourselves!
