This Valentine’s Day, you can celebrate from home by making crafts from fabric! We’ve compiled some fun projects you can do alone or with family to make your home come alive with the spirit of this loving holiday. Here are some Valentine’s Day crafts you can make at home:
Project from Cutesy Crafts
Entryways, stair rails, ceilings and walls could all use a face-lift with bunting or garland. With fabric scraps, pinking shears, and some ribbon, you can make a lovely garland for your home. It makes a perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day tea party or dinner for two.
Whether you’d prefer to sew or use fabric glue, you can make this project. That’s also what makes this project ideal for children and adults alike. Kids can help with gluing and or sewing depending on their age and skill level. Garland is fully-customizable depending on your home décor or what fabric scraps you have lying around.
Project from Polka Dot Chair
For your front door or to hang anywhere in your home, a Valentine’s Day wreath is a welcoming thematic decorative piece. Again, you can use scrap fabric for this one and cut small strips that can be tied around any shape, really. A heart is ideal for this holiday, of course, but you can use any shape by buying a pre-made metal wreath frame or bending a wire coat-hanger.

With little fabric, batting, and a needle and thread, you can put your favorite fabrics (or scraps) to good use. What we really love about these is the versatility. Even the most novice sewer can manage this project. No right-side, wrong-side sewing needed! Just sew together your hearts and leave some room to stuff with batting and use skewers to mount them all over your house! Use them as centerpieces, in houseplants, and anywhere you want to bring some Valentine’s Day cheer.

Give the kids a place to put this year’s Valentine’s Day cards by making them these cute, monogrammed fabric envelopes. This is a little more advanced of a project, but still manageable by a new sewer. This sweet keepsake can be used all year long for pretend play too!

Make your own cards using scrap fabric ! Show someone you care by putting your own special message into these scrap fabric notecards. With a thick paperweight, you can run these right through your sewing machine. However, you can just use a bit of good glue to attach your fabric to the paper. Just remember to use lightweight fabrics if you plan to send these in the mail to save on postage costs.

One more way to use up your scrap fabric is on these cute, rustic coasters. As you can see, you can pair two pattern fabrics with these coasters, or keep it simple with plain designs. If you make a set of these and tie them in a cute ribbon, they make a great gift for that someone special.
