Top Favorite Five Valentines Day DIY Crafts

By Heather Hahn @HeatherHahnn

With Valentines Day being next week, five emotions always go through my mind when this holiday pops up. I’m filled with sadness, happy, annoyed, irritated, and still manage to wonder what half of my friends are even doing for Valentines Day.

Whether you are single, in a complicated relationship, in a happy relationship, engaged or married, I feel like just about everyone still hates this holiday.

On a lighter note, always try to keep yourself busy during Valentines day to distract you from the least of your worries { if you are a single girl. }, try to make Valentines Day a happy day!

Here are five of my top favorite Valentines Day DIY Crafts that you can create for the fun of it. These are literally my top favorites!

3.  Heart Shaped Tea Bags

 Warm someone up by adding a handwritten note to a tea bag. Cut two hearts out of red construction paper using a heart-shaped crafter’s hole punch (available at crafts stores). Use a metallic pen to write a short message on one of the hearts. Next, remove a tea-bag tag and, at the end of the string, affix two hearts, back-to-back, using double-sided tape or a stapler. Package bags to give as a present, or steep one in hot water and serve.

4. Felt Fortune Cookies



  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Fabric shears
  • Wire cutters
  • Craft glue
  1. STEP 1

    Using fabric shears, cut a 4 1/2-inch-diameter circle from a piece of felt. Cut a piece of matching ribbon slightly shorter than 4 1/2 inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of floral wire slightly shorter than the length of ribbon.

  2. STEP 2

    Using craft glue, affix the wire to the middle of the felt circle. Glue ribbon on top, covering the wire. Let dry 30 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Fold the felt circle in half, using the wire as a guide, so ribbon is inside cookie. Next, angle the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point and forming a fortune-cookie shape, as shown.

  4. STEP 4

    Assemble the fortune cookies. Carefully peel back one flap of the felt cookie, and insert a paper fortune and a few candies. Fold the flap back over to close cookie around contents.
