16 Crafts and Activities for Valentine's Day

Today is a great crafting list of 16 crafts and activities your can make for Valentine’s Day!  I can’t believe it, this is my 700th post! I’m so proud of all the women I’ve featured and the quality of ideas here on Tip Junkie. You Ladies are the BEST for sticking with me. 😉

I have tons of submitted tips and tutorials to feature, so I’m going to wrap up Valentine’s Day week with the remaining ideas I’ve found.

16 Crafts and Activities

If you have a daughter, you’ve got to check out these Valentine Hairdo’s from The Story of a Princess and her Hair. She has several insanely amazing ideas for your little princess to sport on the big day.


Ghirardelli Love You Much Box – a beautiful altered box to hold some yummies for teachers or friends.

Jennifer’s Box of Valentines would make an excellent gift filled with cards, or to keep at home to fill up with handmade cards from the family to open on the big day.

I found this Valentine Bag on Jaspere’s Little Corner. Great for your tween & teens to take goodies to school in.

Gift Ideas

JenTapler designed this amazing CD Mini Album. She shows off several of her pages so you can get an idea of how to do it as well.

Check out this accordion card by Little Black Scrap Cat. {{fabulous}}

Lavender & Limes made a tutorial on how to make a Valentine Day Busy Book. What a cute gift idea for little ones.

Zakka Life hooked us up with a tutorial on how to make this Mini Valentine Chocolate Boxes.

I’m completely intrigued by matchbox gifts. {{it’s the pyro in me}} Here’s another one fun altered gift I found over at Glitter, Vinyl & Thread.

Teacher Gift Ideas

I came across this altered candle by Cheri and thought the idea was brilliant. It opened my mind up to so many more gift possibilities I can have by simply adding a little something to a traditional gift idea.

Chris has the nailed the idea with her decorated hand sanitizers & lotion. {{fabulous}}

Sweet Treats

The Decorated Cookie created a tutorial on how to make these darling Licorice Love cookies. I really enjoy making cookie bouquets for teachers on V-day. These would be easy.

I don’t normally feature companies, but I found these cupcake roses and had to show you! Ooolala. I’m loving that extra frosting on top. 😉

Crafty Daisies made a tutorial on how to make their sugar cookies and box made out of poster board.

Pickled Paper Designs has tons of great V-day ideas. I’m loving her rice crispy treats dipped in white chocolate and covered with pink, red and white sprinkles. {{sweet!}}
