Free Valentine Craft Projects!

Whether you are planning a Valentine's party for home or a classroom, or just want to make something special with the ones you love - try these free Valentine Crafts Ideas!

 

Lollipop Valentine Card
These lollipop Valentine cards are very simple to create - even young children can make these sweet Valentines.
Supplies needed:
Pieces of construction paper (red, pink, purple, green)
pencil
Regular or heart-shaped lollipops
Scissors
Glue
Tape
Optional: A printer (if you want to use heart templates)
Cut out some red, pink or purple hearts - they should be a little bigger than the lollipops you have. Using green construction paper, cut out some leaves.
If you'd like, use a heart template page and print it out to help you draw hearts.
Write a message on one side of each heart.
Glue or tape a lollipop onto the blank side of each heart.
Tape one or more leaves onto the stem of each lollipop.
You now have sweet Valentine cards for all your friends.


Pop-up Heart Garden Card
Make a beautiful heart pop-up card using construction paper. This is a great Valentine's Day Card.
Supplies needed:
Various colors of construction paper
Scissors
Glue
Markers or crayons
Fold two rectangular pieces of construction paper in half. One piece will be the outside of the card and one piece will be the inside.
On the piece that will be the inside, cut two short lines near the middle of the fold.
Fold the two outside flaps that you just made (but do not fold the middle flap). Unfold the flaps. Open the card.
Push the two flaps towards the inside of the card - they will form 2 step-like protuberances.
Refold the card. Cut two short lines through the folded flaps on the sides.
Fold the outside flaps that you just made. Unfold the flaps.
Open the card. Push the two flaps towards the inside of the card - they will form 4 step-like protuberances.
Cut some small hearts, stems and leaves from construction paper. Decorate them with crayons or markers if you like.
Glue the stems, leaves, and hearts to the flaps. Make sure that the hearts do not stick out of the card when the card is closed.
Glue the card to the other piece of folded construction paper. To make sure that you do not glue the flaps down, apply the glue only to the inside of the card and then carefully place it on the outer card.
Write a message on your lovely heart garden pop-up card for Valentine's Day.


 

Candy Roses
The candy rose can be made by most children (and adults!) and can be given alone along with a handwritten card or tied together with curling ribbon to make a beautiful bouquet that anyone would love!
Supplies needed per Candy Rose:
Two Hershey Kisses
25 inches of floral tape 
Red or pink cellophane wrap (cut 4 1/2 inch squares)
Artificial stem or 18 gauge stem wire (cut a 6 inch piece)
Leaf - Use an artificial  or green hard candy or use green 
cellophane wrap (4 1/2 inch square)
Red or white ribbon
Directions:
Hold two Hershey kisses flat sides together.  Place both in the center of the square cellophane wrap.   Gather all four corners together and twist at the tip of the bottom kiss.
Lay the stem next to the twisted excess cellophane.  Stretching floral tape tightly begin wrapping the floral tape around the stem and cellophane just under the kisses.  Wrap about 1 inch in length down the stem.
Add artificial or candy or cellophane leaf and wrap floral tape for about 1/2 inch to attach leaf.
If you wanted to you could add a second leaf per stem in the same manner. 
Continue wrapping the floral tape down the stem, overlapping it and pulling it tight until you reach the bottom.  Cut any excess floral tap and wrap end onto the stem. 
If you are planning on placing these in a flower pot, leave about 1/2 in of wire showing on the bottom of stem, so it can be inserted into the foam.  
Tie bow from the ribbon just beneath the leaf of a single stem candy rose, or make several and bunch them together and tie with a ribbon. 
To fill a flower pot full of your candy hearts (using foam in the bottom), make additional cellophane leafs for filler, by taking the square and pinching opposite sides together, wrapping a 20 gauge wire (4 inch piece) around the center and twisting it. Stick the leaves into the foam to fill spaces around your roses.

If you are only making a few, you can hand paint the pieces with acrylic craft paint. Then use a paint pen or a very fine brush to write your message. Let the pieces dry.
