On Valentine’s Day, romance is the name of the game and what is more romantic than candlelight? With this craft, you can easily set the stage for romance this Valentine’s Day. To create these loved-filled votive holders, you’ll need:


  • Plain glass votive holders
  • Pieces of paper with a Valentine-theme (red, pink, hearts, etc)
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Votive candles or tea lights


Wrap a piece of paper of your choice around the votive to get a measurement and cut the paper to fit the votive. Secure the paper to the votive with your double-sided tape. Once wrapped, place a candle inside and voila! You have a simple and lovely accessory for Valentine’s Day.


Hanging Hearts

Hang these hearts from anywhere in your home to add to the spirit of Valentine’s Day. You can even make some for every room! To make these hearts, you’ll need:


Decorative Valentine-themed paper (red, white, pink, hearts, polka dots, etc)

  • A pencil
  • Scissors
  • A hole puncher
  • Ribbon


Draw hearts in various sizes on the paper and cut them out. Use the hole puncher to create a hold at the top of each heart. Cut a length of ribbon and string it through the holes in the hearts, tying a knot in the end to secure it in place. Wherever you choose to hang the hearts in your home, tie the ribbon around a secure area, such as a window valance. Hang several along the length of the valance, creating a curtain effect of hearts.

Use the stencils to spell out the word ‘love’ on the pillow. Paint the letters onto the pillow using the foam paint brushes. To add even more interest, use a heart stencil to create hearts on the surface of the pillow around the word ‘love’.

If your loved ones are avid tea drinkers, then this craft is the perfect way to infuse some love into their drink. You can even personalize it however you like! All you need is the following:

  •  Red construction paper
  • A heart-shaped hole punch
  • A metallic pen
  • Tea bags
  • Double-sided tape


Begin by using your heart-shaped hole punch to cut out several hearts from the red paper – you’ll need two hearts for each bag of tea. Next, write a note of love on one or both of the hearts with your metallic pen. Finally, remove the original tea bag tag and apply two hearts to the end of the string with double-sided tape. Package them up in a creative container and present them to your favorite tea drinker.


No matter which craft you choose to make for Valentine’s Day, doing it with love is all that matters. Spark feelings of romance in your home or present your loved ones with simple, but heartfelt crafts. With these simple and budget-friendly craft ideas, you will share the message of love with ease this coming Valentine’s Day.
