18 DIY Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

12. Pom Pom Valentine Craft Monsters

Do your kids fear monsters under the bed?  In the closet?  Well, these little pom pom valentine monsters are so cute, the kids will adore them.  I made my first yarn pom poms this Christmas when I was wrapping presents.  Here’s a link to that post. Check out the instructions for these valentine monsters on Consumer Crafts.

13. Melted Bead Wind Chime

Not only is this a beautiful valentine and message of love, but it makes music besides. Allison over at No Time For Flashcards turned a craft fail into this beautiful wind chime. Check out her experience, and try it out for yourself. Note: there were fumes from the beads, so take note of her precautions. We don’t want anyone to experience a health risk.

14. Paper airplane love note printable.

Paper airplanes are such a hit with kids.  I can’t say how many paper airplanes I’ve made with my boys.  I can only imagine the fun and chaos with the kids sending paper airplane valentines to everyone’s valentine in a class of 25 kids!  😉  Sorry teachers!

I found this really cool printable by Cathey Holden.  The website can’t be found, but the pdf still works.  I also saw a twist on this, where you round the wings to look like a heart.  I tried it and I like it even better.

DIY Valentine craft for paper airplane Valentine card.

  1. Per the instructions, this is what it looks like.  Pretty cool!
  2. When you open the airplane, you have space to write a note to your special someone.
  3. I modified it to round the ends and make a heart. In this step, you have to trim a piece off the end.  Cut a slit about an inch of extra paper on the underside of the airplane.  Don’t cut into the wings, just the under side, where you hold the plane.  You can see the slit I cut in my plane.  Then trim it along the creases of the wings to get rid of it.
  4. Draw a line to create the rounded tops of a heart, and cut the excess off.
  5. Now, you have an airplane that looks like a heart. 😊
