I used I Love This Yarn in Red and a G/4mm hook to make my pillow. It is a a worsted weight yarn so my pillow came out a little smaller than the one in the pattern. It’s about 9.5 inches across by 10.5 inches high. It’s the perfect size to sit on my little rocking chair!
A cute and easy way to add a little ❤️ to your home.
I found this cute Crochet Heart Dishcloth free pattern here while I was perusing Pinterest. It works up really quickly and would make a fun little Valentine surprise to give to a friend. ❤️
I used I Love This Cotton yarn in Red and White and an H/5mm hook to stitch up my dishcloth. It ended up a bit smaller than the size stated in the pattern – about 7.5 inches by 6 inches. Still a great size!
Put one or two in a cute basket with a few chocolates and you have a sweet Valentine to share with someone special! ❤️
I have the cutest little Valentine Treat Cups to share with you today! They are only about 3 inches tall – just the perfect size for a sweet treat!
You’ll need some of these tiny 4 ounce disposable coffee cups (I found mine here), some scrapbook paper, stamps, punches, and other embellishments.
First you’ll need to make a template to cut your paper to wrap around the cups. Take one of your cups and cut out the bottom circle using a craft knife. Then cut up the seam of the cup so it will lay flat. Finally, cut off the small lip on the top indicated by the arrow.
Using your template, cut a piece of patterned paper to wrap around the cup, adding about 1/4-inch to each end so it will overlap when attached to the cup.
Glue the patterned paper to the cup, overlapping the edge. Use the seam on the cup as a guide on where to glue the first edge and make sure the top edge of the paper is pushed up to the lip of the cup. I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue for this step. It dries quickly, but not too quickly, so you can adjust your paper if you need to.
Then embellish however you’d like! I used different punches and embellishments as well as stamps to decorate my cups. Use whatever you have in your craft room! (If you are looking for some heart stamps, this is a cute set. Here’s a great set of heart dies or a good heart punch to add to your tools.)
Simply cut your ribbon to fit around your candle, allowing it to overlap about 1/4 inch. Hot glue the ribbon to the candle. I glued one short edge to the candle and then glued the other short end, slightly overlapping the first end.
Cut hearts from red felt and hot glue to the front of the candle.
And that’s it! A super fast and easy addition to your Valentine decor.
To make the card, attach a piece of pattered paper to a white card. Emboss a piece of red card stock with your favorite embossing folder. (The one I used is no longer available, but you can find a similar one here.) Attach the embossed piece at an angle to the card. Trim a small strip of another patterned paper into a banner shape and attach to the card. Attach both stamped images to the card with foam tape.
A sweet way to connect the hearts of “old friends”!
I sponged the sky with light blue ink using a cloud template similar to this. Then I added a grass border punched from green card stock. I stamped the hippo, party hat, balloons, and little birds on white card stock with black ink. After coloring the images with Copic markers, I die cut them using the matching die set. The images are attached to the card with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment using the same ink I used for the sky.
I hope this sweet card adds a little Springtime to your day!
