Valentine’s Day gives many of us mixed feelings. For those who have a significant other, it can be a night of romance, but for those of us who haven’t found our perfect match just yet, it’s very likely we’ll finish a whole bottle of wine and that box of chocolates we bought for ourselves by nine o’clock. Hey, it happens.

Despite our relationship status, we can all get swept up in the V-day spirit. That’s why I’ve rounded up seven Valentine’s Day crafts you’ll want to hold onto way past February 14, even if it’s just for yourself.

1. Heart-shaped tea bags


I could use these tea bags, brought to you by DIY Enthusiasts, every day of the year! Super simple and super fun, fill these with all different types of tea and stay warm for the remainder of winter.

2. Carved candle


Keep the spark lit long past February 14 – literally! This adorable DIY carved candle from Hello Glow is a piece of cake to make and definitely one-of-a-kind.

3. Burlap heart wreath


I’m ALL about DIY burlap wreaths. It’s a timeless classic, so naturally I couldn’t resist this heart-shaped burlap wreath. Thank you, Where the Smiles Have Been, for creating this masterpiece.

4. Strawberry sugar scrub


Sugar scrubs are a year-round necessity! Check out The Gunny Sack for this delightful pink scrub you can use over and over again.

5. Rustic wood letters


No one said valentines had to be flashy, pink and red and in your face. I love these rustic wood letters brought to you by Finding Home. They act as lovely neutral decor that can stay up all year!

6. Valentine’s coasters


Cute, fun and keeping your coffee table protected! These simple coasters are super trendy, too. Keep things colorful with Shelterness‘s DIY coasters.

7. Fabric envelopes


These adorable (and durable, for that matter) envelopes can be used for delivering valentines, or any other type of letter! Check out the tutorial on Craft-O-Maniac.
