Valentine’s Day Ideas!

Here are a few ways to add crochet hearts to your Valentine’s Day gifts and decorations! I think adding little handmade items make gifts so much more special, and these hearts are quick and easy to make!

Mason Jar Ties

Mason jars are always cute, and theses little hearts are a quick way to dress them up! I followed this tutorial from Maybe Matilda for the little hearts. They are so little and so adorable! I connected them with a long chain by slip stitching in the center of each heart. Just fill a mason jar with your favorite candy, tie this around it, and you’re good to go!

You can also use this to tie up a gift box!

Garlands

I love garlands! They’re so fast and can be made for any holiday! I  used the same heart pattern from before with a 3.25mm hook and thin cotton to make tiny heart garlands. I connected them by chaining 31 and slip stitching in to the center of the heart.

I also made bigger hearts with this tutorial from yesterday! Your hearts may curl a little around the edges. To make the hearts lay flat, I sprayed them with starch and ironed them for a second.  This doesn’t make them too stiff, but does help them hang straight.

Card Holder

If you are giving a card, why not slip it into a little heart pocket? I used a plastic needle to stitch two hearts together. You can use it alone for a note or gift card, or tie it to a bigger gift!

The easiest way to use a crochet heart is to just tie it to your card! I found some awesome vintage valentines here that I just printed out! Punch a hole in the corner of your card and tie it to your heart. It’s an easy way to add something unique and personal to your Valentine’s Day Cards!
