Valentine's Day Heart Crafts

The best kind of holiday decor is the kind made by little hands and filled with love. For Valentine's Day it's all about hearts - the crafting possibilities are almost endless!

Potato Stamp Heart Placemats

My kids absolutely loved this craft and wanted to stamp everything in sight. You may not want to actually eat off the placemats (unless you laminate them) as they will get dribbled on and destroyed; we used them to decorate our Valentine's Day table but then moved them to the middle of the table when we sat down to eat.

Heart-shaped Potato Stamp

1. Cut a potato in half and carve out a heart shape on the flat side.

2. Dip potato stamp in paint and press onto a piece of coloured construction paper.

3. Dry and enjoy!

"Stained Glass" Paper Hearts

We make these pretty wax paper hearts every year. They're a fun craft for the kids and some cheerful spring warmth and colour to decorate the windows during this dull winter month.

Cut varying sizes of heart shapes out of wax paper, colour, and tape to windows. So pretty when the sun shines through!

Dream Catcher Pipe Cleaner Hearts

Bend craft pipe cleaners into heart shapes. Wrap colourful wool around the hearts, leaving some spaces. Be careful not to pull the wool too tightly - it will bend and distort the heart shape. Tie the ends of the wool together at the back and hang the hearts in the window.
