3 Valentine?s Day Arts & Crafts Ideas

Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for a crafty session with the kids – after all there is nothing better than getting a little something made by someone you love!

Beaded Heart Ornament


You will need:

  • Craft Wire
  • Beads


Bend your wire into a simple shape, thread the beads onto the wire. Twist the ends together, cut the wire so you are left with two over hanging pieces of wire. Twist the ends of these together to form a loop to hang.

Butterfly Magnet


You will need:

  • 4 large craft foam hearts
  • 7 small craft foam hearts
  • 1 tiny craft foam hearts
  • Pipe cleaner
  • 2 small wiggle eyes
  • Red pen
  • Magnet
  • Glue


Stick three of the small hearts in a column overlapping the point of one heart over the top of the heart below-this is the body. Stick a small heart into the middle of each large heart. Arrange the large hearts into a wing shape. Glue the top ones overlapping the bottom wing part. Glue the body to the centre of the wings. Cut two short pieces of stem, stick to back of the top heart of the body which is the head. Stick a tiny heart to the end of each piece of stem. Stick the wiggle eyes to the head and draw on a mouth. Finish by gluing a magnet to the back of your butterfly.

Felt Heart Pillow


You need:

  • 2 sheets of felt in pink or red
  • Fabric glue
  • Beads, sequins, fabric paint etc.
  • Needle and thread
  • Stuffing


Cut two large hearts from the felt. Decorate the two hearts with anything you find in your craft cupboard. When the fabric paint and glue is dry, use running stitch to sew the two hearts together. Leave a gap to stuff the pillow. Sew up the gap and knot the thread.
