14 Valentine’s Day Ideas

14 Valentine's Day Ideas

14 Valentine’s Day Ideas

Now that we are almost halfway through January, it’s time to start looking forward to our next fun holiday….Valentine’s Day (I also love MLK day, but there aren’t many craft/food related things for that holiday…)!!  I put together a list of 14 (…like the date of Valentines day *wink wink*) various things that could give you Valentine’s Day inspiration.  From cookies, to homemade cards, there is a little bit of everything.

Below, lets start out with this super cute holiday door wreath.  I love this idea of taking simple twigs, and sprucing them up with some color.  This wreath is from XOXO Decor’s Etsy shop, but I bet this wouldn’t be too hard to replicate yourself.

This next project is a really cute idea to do with kids.  You need some paint or stamps to press little fingers into, some card stock  and a sharpie, and you are good to go.  Unfortunately I could only find this imagine, and not the source where it came from.

Next up is a great looking door that has been decorated for Valentine’s Day by A Little Crafting.  I actually made a burlap wreath very similar to this one last Christmas, and it was really easy and cheap! I love the burlap banner too- what a great touch!

Looking for some easy decorations for the inside of your house?  Take a look at this super cute banner from The Paper Mama.  She is so generous that she is offering this banner as a free printable!  Just load up some paper in that bad boy and print!  Get some cute ribbon and hang this up!  I am definitely doing this one!

Whether you have kids or not, this next tutorial on how to make some homemade Valentines is so super cute!  Fiskars is giving instructions to make 3 really awesome DIY valentines.  I love this little monkey!

Valentine’s Day Heart Cookies from Food on Paper

Now, if you are hosting a party, I am sure you need some adult beverages.  These Strawberry and Basil Margaritas are perfect for washing down cookies.  By letting the Starwberries sit for a few hours in the drink, the margaritas turn a festive shade of pink!  Perfect for a romantic cocktail, too!

Moving on from food,  check out these adorable DIY cards.  If you follow my blog, you know that I just love doing any type of hand print art. It’s simple for kids to do, and they are so proud of themselves when it’s finished.  It is also a great keepsake for parents as well.  Rosy~Posy gives a great step by step tutorial on how to make these!

For some free and awesome home decor, check out Plum Adorable.  She has a ton of free printables for Valentine’s Day!  I love the subway art, and already have it displayed in my kitchen.  Those xoxo blocks look super easy to make too.  She has several other ideas and printables for Valentine’s Day as well.

I love these Conversation Heart Cookies from Martha Stewart.  These would make a great dessert or gift bag favor for those school parties.

Lastly, if you just plan to stay in and snuggle up with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day, this Strawberry cake would make the perfect at-home dessert.  A person who commented on this recipe said, “Really perfect for Valentine’s. This cake speaks of nothing but love. Okay, perhaps sweetness, and passion and beauty”….it must be great, right!?

That’s all I have for today!  What are your Valentines Day plans?

  2. Love those heart cookies from Food on Paper and of course the Strawberry cake :-) great ideas! :-)

  3. These are cute ideas! I never cared about valentines day until I had my kid. Holidays are fun, now. Ha!
