Romantic Red Valentine Crafts

Romantic red home decor crafts for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is one of my all time favorite holidays. While love is wonderful and should be celebrated, I have never been big on the whole dramatic romantic scene. The fact that I was married so close to the holiday had more to do with a bargain than it did with the date. No, for me, the Valentine's Day excitement is all about the fact that I get to decorate with RED ~ as if I needed an excuse!!

Over the past several years, I have whipped up a few Valentine crafts and some of them have been among my most popular posts. I decided to round them all up today and share them again. Feel free to pin them and share with your friends.

And keep in mind that while they are Valentine Day home decor crafts, every single one of them can be displayed all year.

Red is actually a very neutral color.

No kidding. 😉

Oh and keep reading after the round up. I have a teeny tiny thrift store flash giveaway!


how to make a Valentine banner out of old puzzle pieces

Puzzle pieces have never looked so good. This is the banner that started the obsession! Simple to make, original and oh so elegant. Check out the details and the pattern and you'll have your own in no time flat. 


how to make a valentine note card banner

I picked these note cards up in the dollar bins at the craft store. While they were not specifically Valentine cards, I made it work with the addition of a few hearts. 


how to make a diy red hydrangea wreath

No hearts here, but when the red is this bold, who needs them? It's super easy to put together and makes a festive statement wherever you decide to hang it up. 


how to make a valentine sock angel doll

How can you not fall in love with this craft? Isn't she the sweetest? And she can hang out with you all year long, just change up her surroundings and this little one will share her love all year long. 


how to make floral candle rings

Here's a little Valentine irony...so most people (including myself) will tell you that they don't really like faux flowers...and yet, these floral rings are among my top posts of all time. Yup. Pinterest, blog views, you name it, they are right up there. I have to admit, I love them. I keep them up long after Valentine's Day and have dolled them up for Christmas, as well.

Keep in mind, they'd look good in any color.

Gasp. Did I just say that out loud?


how to make a tulip petal candle decor

More fake flowers! I mean why mess with success? A few petals and a candle are all you need to add a little romance to your room.


Heart embellished pillow

Here's a sweet treat for your holiday. It's an embellished pillow sitting on my patchwork chair. Check out the how to...easy!


make a banner from gift tags

So, I was back at those craft store dollar bins again and I found these cute gift tags and letters. I think they look darling on my hood above my DIY rustic wooden cake plate


scrap fabric valentine garland

Well, we started with a banner and we're ending with a banner. Big surprise, huh? 

And can you blame me? 

They're a perfect way to quickly and inexpensively add a little Valentine pizazz to my home with out breaking the bank.

Cheap, easy and Exquisitely Unremarkable. 

Fabulous.

Happy Valentine's Day!


Looking for more Valentine fun? Check out my silly story. True. And completely embarrassing.

Just don't tell anyone else. Ok?

    1. I’m with you, Nancy, fabric is my weakness. Somedays I wish I were a better seamstress or a had more windows! Or I knew how to quilt…oh I could really get myself into some fabric hoarding trouble with that hobby!! ;)

  5. Red makes such a bright addition to our dreary winter days, doesn't it? I try to send cards to some of the older people in our church. These postcards would be perfect for that. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. I am new to your blog and love the projects you create. I am a paper crafter and would love to use those postcards in my cards. Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. I love all your pops of red, Kim! It really jumps out with all the white background. Back in the 80's I had red and white "pillow ticking" wallpaper in my kitchen and all white and red throughout the area. Everyone that came in just loved it!
    I have so much note paper and cards to use up that I will probably die before they are all gone so I will let someone else take my turn at winning. lol
    Hope you have a great night, Kim. xo Diana

  14. I adore all of your sweet Valentine decor ideas, Kim! I think my fave is the banner with the cute cards and hearts...I'd be leaving that one up for awhile...I mean, just replace the hearts with stars and you've got a cute 4th of July!

    Warm hugs,
    Carol

  15. That wreath has me inspired to add a few red hydrangeas into my winter wreath on the front door! Great idea! I love writing handwritten letters. Like my mother says, they are the first piece of mail you want to open - just the excitement of getting one is happy. Maybe because they aren't junk mail or bills! Ha! Enter me in your giveaway and thanks!

  19. I love Valentine's Day, too! Not because I'm a romantic - just because I love hearts and red and it's a sweet holiday that even kids can get into. Who doesn't want to spread a little love, right? Thus all said, you have some great craft ideas AND I'd love the chance to win your giveaway! Thanks for including me.

  20. You are toooooo cute, and of course RED is a neutral :^) I love all of your great ideas. The grand girlies will be here for V-day, so we will have to try a thing or two out! Pa is always complimentary when they "do-up" the table, and that makes them happy girls!!
    Thank you for your help, and for including me in the drawing!!
    Blessings,

  23. I see I wrote Yow gave me lots of inspiration! Ha! I have to share with you. I have a new lap top, I honestly think it types up different letters on purpose! I like my new lap top, but this typing its own letters is going to have to stop. I just have to figure out how to have a good talk with it!
    Ha!!!

    1. Carla, did you buy a Mac? When I got mine, I suddenly started typing all these crazy things. I thought I typed everything perfectly, but then I would proofread and my words were totally different…and not even real words sometimes. I soon figured out that it was my computer “correcting” me. My smartypants kids had Macs and said, yup, they do that. A few still get by every now and again. It may not just be Macs, it may just be the programs now. So much for smart technology, hmmm?

  25. Lot's of cute ideas here Kim but my favourite is the sock angel. I just really like the idea of having an angel for companionship. I looked to see what sock craft idea I had and it was a rabbit.

  26. I love your sweet Valentine additions. You were smart to make the note cards work with just a few hearts. Clever! Would you believe I haven't gotten out any Valentine decor??? I need to at least put up my heart banner over the mantel. I better get busy. :)
