Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that I've both loved and hated at various points in my life. Loved when I'm in a relationship, which I am lucky enough to be in right now (and, you know, forever more) and hated when I was feeling particularly lonely, i.e. when I was a teenager (until I was a senior in high school) and through most of college.
Regardless, I've always liked giving and getting valentines, and I enjoy decorating for the holiday as well. I'll be posting actual valentines next week, but let's start things off with some love-themed crafts. Many of these would be good decor year-round!
Giant Geometric Wall Art | Oleander + Palm
Love the pink and gold together, and the minimalist feel. So simple, yet so pretty!
Giant Valentine’s Day Posters | Oh Happy Day
I've been itching to get a giant blueprint poster from a copy shop for a while now. This would be a great project to start with. Plus: There are a variety of poster options to choose from at the link!
Love Yarn Letters | My Sister's Suitcase
I am a big fan of letter art. I've tried making my own yarn letters before, but could never get the wrapping to look quite right. This is a fantastic tutorial.
La La Love You Valentine Pillow | Make Life Lovely
Statement pillows are a great way to add holiday decor to a home without going broke. You could even buy one insert and then create a set of pillowcases to change out with each holiday/season.
Printable Valentine's Day Garland | Sarah Hearts
Although I don't often use them, looking back at previous DIY-deas posts, I'm obviously a fan of garlands. Why not create another one for Valentine's Day? (The sweet prints on top of the sideboard are another cute Sarah Hearts project; learn more here.)
What about you, friends? Are you a Valentine's lover or hater?
