20+ Fun and Easy Ideas for Valentine's Day

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fun and Easy Ideas for Valentine's DayCan you believe that it’s just a little over a month until Valentine’s Day? I  love to make my own decor and gifts, so it’s time for me to get busy crafting! Sooo…just in case you are like me in that department, I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas!

I can’t do fancy needle work, but my no-sew faux cross-stitch Valentine tea towel gives the impression that I can! It’s actually an easy-to-do iron-on transfer. Doesn’t it look real? The free graphic is included in the tutorial.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Valentine Sharpie PlateThis one is so fun and easy that the kiddos could help! My Valentine DIY Sharpie plate and mug make a sweet gift…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Valentine Sharpie Plate and Mug…especially if you add some cookies! You will find my favorite sugar cookie recipe included as well.

And although it's not just for Valentine's Day, my Dollar Store pastry dome is another great idea for a sweet gift!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Vintage Bunny Love Valentine Pillow This  vintage “Bunny Love” Valentine pillow adds the just-right Valentine-y touch for me and can go through Easter, too!

I am also sharing a few of my Valentine vignettes plus a vintage French Valentine that you can print and use as well.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Valentine CenterpieceAnd if you love vintage ironstone, then you’ll like my Valentine centerpiece…starring my Red Cliff ironstone tea pot! I also added a generous helping of the sweater hearts (actually Christmas ornaments) that I found on sale at Hancock Fabrics after Christmas last year!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Rustic Valentine Wreath with Sweater HeartsAnd even more of them found their way on to my rustic Valentine wreath with burlap added for texture.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired No-Sew Valentine Tea TowelHere’s another easy-to-make idea…my Pottery Barn inspired no-sew Valentine tea towel! Once again, an iron-on transfer creates the look of pretty handwork.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Valentine MantelAnd continuing with the sweater hearts, my Farmhouse Valentine mantel combines galvanized elements with ironstone and burlap for a fun vintage look.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fun Valentine IdeasAnd finally, I have even more fun ideas for Valentine’s Day for you to check out…including several Pottery Barn inspired pillows. You will find them here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ticking and Toile Vintage Valentine PillowBut I have to say that the very first Valentine pillow that I ever made is still my favorite…my ticking and toile French Valentine pillow!

Baby KittyAnd I think even Baby Kitty would agree! How about you? Have you started thinking about Valentine’s Day?
