  • We are loving this "Love Letters" dinner party idea from MJ Paperie ! The DIY centerpiece is so simple and amazing and we are loving the place cards they used with their stationary. It can give any table a little bit of love.

  • This Valentine's Day mantle is such a cute way to spruce up your home for the holiday. A little delightful put it all together with pretty pink buttons and homemade dolly garland! Perfect for any living room, kitchen, or child's bedroom.

  • Like Giselle made this simple paper heart craft that would be the perfect accessory to a card or place it on a string and make it a necklace. Share the love this Valentine's Day and give someone this cute paper heart.

  • My Own Labels created this crayon heart garland with crayon shavings, wax paper and an iron. If you fold them accordian-style and place them in a box they make a really cute and unexpected gift. Let the love grow long with this easy craft.

  • There is so much you can do with these colorful Valentine's Day printables from Family Fresh Cooking . You can decorate any gift, whether a decorative chinese food box filled with goodies or a simple gift tag.  Marla used them to decorate jars that she filled with chocolate truffles. It's perfect to accent any Valentine's day gift!

  • Have the kids make their own Valentine's Day votives like this one by Little BGCG . Make some tissue paper art! Grab some tissue paper, modge podge and left over jars or vases for this easy and fun craft!
