Five Romantic Crafts For Valentines Day And Beyond

You can create crafts for Valentines Day that are romantic without being too thematic  for the holiday.

If you are looking for a more subtle way to create something endearing, you may want to try one of these five romantic crafts that can be used to decorate with at any time of the year.

The examples that I have chosen are all in a rustic or shabby chic style.

To begin with, a fun monogram done with the initial of that special person in your life would be a romantic craft to create and put on display.  Just decoupage newspaper or other decorative paper to a paper mache or wooden letter.  I like how this one is complemented with it’s surrounding decor.  The candles on top, candy at the bottom and flower along side all add a feel of romance to the whole shelf.

I love how these boxes are wrapped in decorative romantic craft paper and then are displayed in this cubed book shelf.   The combination of the old books and festive papers make this display especially romantic.

These mason jar candle holders wrapped in lace doilies and trimmed out with twine, ribbon and buttons create a wonderful romantic setting, especially when the candles are lit.  Green Owl Craft shows you just how to make some of these.

You can’t get much more romantic than the word love!  This shabby “love” wreath arrangement shows a great way to spread some happiness all year long.

Finally, this French inspired  pink box would make a perfect accent piece in your shabby chic decor.  The French words, beaded hearts and pink color all help to make this positively romantic.

All of these craft ideas would be great to make for Valentines Day but what I like the most about them is the fact that they can be displayed all year long.  A shabby chic style typically holds a bit of the romantic so all of these ideas could be incorporated well into your decor without looking out of place after the holiday.

Happy Crafting!
