It can be a challenge to come up with ideas for Valentine’s Day for grownups. It has to take some effort and thought, or don’t do it! Dialing an 800-number and charging for a delivery is just way too easy!
It is with this gentle prod that I went searching for some fun, easy-to-do gift ideas for grownups to make for other grownups.
Valentine’s Light Decorations
These are so cute! These valentine’s day light decorations don’t look too hard to do. The hardest part might be finding heart shaped balloons, but the pink and red yarn should be easy to locate. We did something like this with orange string for Halloween to make pumpkins! Might be a little messy with the glue, but once dried, these are adorable. Here’s a link to the pretty LED lights to make this project really shine!

Matchbox Love Notes
I love little boxes like Altoid tins and matchboxes. This little project at www.mamaisdreaming.blogspot.com is so cute! Go to her website and there are some templates provided to glue on the boxes.
In the instructions, she says to put little love notes in the boxes. Another idea might be mini candy hearts.
Just in case you don’t have any matchboxes lying around, you can order some solely for crafting from Amazon here. (Pick up some Altoid tins while you’re there for some future project!)

DIY Wire Hearts
Do you like working with craft wire? This one is easy, easy and you can add any kind of ribbon or anything you find.
If you don’t happen to have craft wire around the house, you can get some here.

One of my next projects is to learn how to make books with different kinds of bindings. This project looks super simple and uses Japanese book binding.
You can leave it blank or fill with love notes and quotes. You can start with something as simple as the cardboard from a cereal box!

Pretty frames are everywhere. You can grab something at a dollar store or craft store or use something lovely you have hanging around.
The colors on this printable are luscious so make sure you have fresh ink and print something beautiful!
