Fabric Valentine’s Day Heart Garland

A string of cheery hearts will brighten your home and delight your kids. Graphic and textile designer Jessica Jones of How About Orange created this Valentine’s Day garland using stiffened fabric. Before you make these folded fabric hearts, look through your fabric stash or consider using old clothes, choosing festive colors of red, pink and lavender of course!

Heart Paper Pockets

What a sweet way to say “Will you be my Valentine!” These Heart Paper Pockets created by Makes and Takes founder Marie LeBaron for Craftzine are easy enough to make for a whole classroom of kids. Look for appropriately colored scrap papers, old Valentines or magazine pages to make the paper hearts. Then you simply punch holes along the border and string yarn through the holes. When finished your child can put a sweet organic candy or a little love note inside.

Scratch Valentine Cards

Scratch-off stuff is tons of fun for kids and these DIY Scratch Valentines make our hearts beat with excitement — these could be the biggest hit of your kid’s classroom! Little Lovely‘s Khali Whatley dreamed up this fun concept for Bloesem Kids. You can cut the hearts out from scrap paper or old cards you have lying around as long as there is a blank spot on them so you can write a message that will soon become secret. Next, you paint on a mixture of paint and dishwashing liquid to cover the words. Later, the Valentine recipient can use a coin to scratch and reveal any professions of love!
