Tons of Creative Valentines Day Crafts and Ideas!

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I like to dream outside the {mass produced} box.  It’s not always feasible to craft your own valentines because we all live such busy lives, but I always aspire to do so.  Assuming you have some time on your hands, it’s really fun to create your own Valentine’s Day cards… especially if you make them with your kids.  Here’s a bunch of creative ideas for classroom valentines as well as a few special one-of-a-kind ideas for someone special.  Get ready to hop aboard the Creative Valentine Express!

Last year, I shared tutorials for Folding Heart Photo Valentines as well as Year’s Worth of Dates in a Box.  The photo valentines are perfect for grandparents, and the date nights are especially great for busy parents who could use a few fresh date ideas!

We’ll end with this super creative idea using shadows to convey a message of love.  I’m pretty sure it involves math and someone with a lot of patience, but for those of you whom fit the bill then harness the power of the sun and shine some love out there!

  1. ha! I was JUST on pinterest looking for ideas.
    The shadow is adorable.

    1. I love the shadow idea, too… I’m not sure I have the patience to reenact it, though! Glad I saved some Pinterest time for you. 😉

  2. These are all so cute! We already have the Star Wars glowstick valentines printed out for my son to give out! And I had pinned the bug jars, too.

  3. These are SO great! They don’t even look too time consuming (says the naive mom who doesn’t DIY anything!) I love the butterflies, glow sticks, and goldfish valentines. I think I’ll do the Star Wars card for my husband next year 😉
