With Valentine’s day coming up I thought it might be good to post up some Valentine’s craft ideas and tutorials. Here are some really cute nuggets of inspiration to get the ball rolling for display ideas. Happy creating!

Adorable fabric hearts! Would look great in large scale as a garland or even as an entire window backdrop.

The Layers of my Heart

Check out the Tutorial for this Fabric Valentine Heart Garland here.

Heart Attack

This is made with flour but spray paint would be more practical and longer lasting. For heart attack tutorial click here.

These hearts are so pretty and easily made. Just melt a mixture of crayons on some baking paper in the oven and cut out heart shapes once set. For tutorial click here. These would look so wonderful large scale in a window!

Whilst we are on the crayon heart topic… I also found this video tutorial, yet another creative use of crayons for valentines day.

Love & Lace

So elegant and would look beautiful with a lingerie display. For Lace heart tutorial click here.

Banner of Love

Quirky, simple, effective and easy to make!

Love Letters

These concepts are lovely and books are so versatile. I’ve included some special Valentines day book art below too.

Heart Book

 

I Heart U

This would look really effective large scale, with different colours and patterns. Or even in small scale used to highlight a some accessories or perfume on a table.

Below is a similar version in video tutorial format…

 

Don’t keep my heart in a box

Once again this in large scale would look amazing. You could even experiment with putting different fabrics behind the cut outs or make it as a wrap to put around cubes so that mannequins and products can be placed on top.

Spinkle my Love

Glue down some sprinkles, sequins, buttons, beads, whatever you fancy and make the L word!

 

Strings of the Heart

Such an excellent use of paint chips. So much you could do with this concept! I can see heaps of great collages being made with this concept. You could make the word LOVE out of the paint swatches or even cut the paint swatches up into colour squares and make a computer pixelated style heart!

 

Origami Hearts

Origami is one of those crafts that can more often than not, be quite time consuming, depending on the project. But if your willing to put in the time I think you will find the result quite valuable as the intricacy of origami always sparks a lot of interest, and just looks spectacular when used in repetition or large scale.

Cut out some hearts, add a splash of paint and use a white crayon to write a cute message on each one!

Cupids arrow to the heart

 

Forget the drink I just like the arrow concept.

Using this concept of heart arrows in repetition would look pretty spectacular in a display if they where all pointing towards a particular product or mannequin ect.

The Shape of my Heart

A simple effective way of making a heart garland using felt. I like the 3D aspect of it, the depth creates more interest. They could also look great without any string just attached to a backdrop and held up by some nails.

 

Loving the patterns! For tutorial click here.
