Ideas to get ‘Crafty’ on Valentine’s Day

It is a well known fact that Valentine’s Day is quite a controversial celebration of “love.” We all know someone who absolutely adores celebrating Valentine’s Day, the same way we know others who despise every one of its attributes.

Despite that, it is widely known as the “Day of Love”, one you are bound to spend with either your family, your friends, or maybe even your significant other

We can all use some Valentine’s Day ideas to express our love, and what better way to do that than by gifts? But not just any gifts, ones that you personally made from scratch!

Not only is it a way to save some money, but also holds a sentimental value to it!

Here’s a list of a few Valentine’s Day crafts that you can easily create using some items probably lying around your house somewhere, like beans, stones, paper, or even beads:

  1. Vase

Maybe not the simplest DIY project, but a valuable item that can hold the roses you are bound to give or maybe even receive on this special day. You can get creative and transform an old vase by using glass beads, broken tiles, colored beads, or any item you find that can spice up your design.

The perfect place to store not only chocolates and candy, but even jewelry. This project is one of the easiest to do!

  1. Jewelry

An exceptional Valentine’s Day gift for her would be a necklace or a bracelet that you can custom design!

All you need to do is slip the beads onto the head pins in the following order:

row one: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 9 white
row two: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 2 pink, 4 white
row three: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 4 pink, 3 white
row four: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 5 pink, 3 white
row five: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, three white, five pink, five white
row six: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 5 pink, 3 white
row seven: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 4 pink, 3 white
row eight: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 4 white, 2 pink, 4 white
row nine: 1 black, 2 white, 2 black, 9 white

Make sure to wrap the wire from the top once you’re done filling out the beads and you’ve got yourself a custom bead necklace.

4.Coaster

Designing a mosaic-inspired coaster is a great way to keep your tables clean and a creative idea for a gift! Customize a colorful mosaic coaster using some thick cardboard, the material of your choice (broken glass, beads) and super glue.

You can even choose to custom order a mosaic with the design of your choice. For example, you can have a round medallion like the one below or choose an already available design like the rose. Mosaics are a great gift option that hold a long-term value, resembling the love you hold for your valentine.  

  1. Frame

Last but not least, a picture frame is always a great gift to preserve sweet memories. A sweet idea would be to design it and gift it to your loved one, alongside a picture of you two as a constant reminder of your love to him/her!

Moreover, Mozaico offers a wide selection of mosaic borders to add an artistic touch to your walls, such as the floral print above.

Another alternative would be a more simple option, like this standard rope design:
