When you have a Valentine’s Day date planned it usually consists of specifics like candlelit dinners, flowers, dancing, and fine wines or champagne. It is a time of celebrating, and you do it in style, dressed up, fine dining, and more. One of the fun ways to help celebrate your Valentine’s Day evening is to make romantic crafts that aid in your celebration.
Here are some romantic craft ideas for your Valentine’s Day evening:
Painted champagne flukes:
What you need for this craft is:
A bottle of champagne or sparkling cider
2 champagne flukes
A heart stencil, or other Valentine’s themed stencil
What you do: Start by chilling the champagne or sparkling cider. You will not want to drink it warm. Then, clean and dry the champagne flukes. Make sure they are completely clean, and completely dry. Now, align the stencil where you want it on your champagne glass, tape it to the glass so that it does not move. Now stipple paint on to create a shape. The fun thing with this craft is that after it dries you can put a sealant on it so that it becomes permanent, or you can simply wash the paint off with hot soapy water after the evening is over. So, you can use glasses you already have without making them only good for Valentine’s Day.
Last but not least, enjoy sharing a toast to your love with your festive champagne glasses as you enjoy a romantic evening in the tub, a candle lit dinner, or just a cozy snuggle by a roaring fire.
A stitch of love:
For this craft what you need is:
A large piece of fleece
A measuring device
An embroidery machine or access to one
What you do: Get a piece of fleece in a color that represents Valentine’s Day. You can even get a fun print like hearts or cupid. Then, cut the fleece into a piece big enough for you and your loved one to cuddle under as a blanket. Now, cut the edges into strips and tie the base of the strips to give the blanket a more finished feel. Half inch is a good width for these strips. Once you have completed the edge of the blanket, you will want to use an embroidery machine, or take it to a place that does embroidery, or stitch the embroidery by hand. Have your favorite love quote, a personal message of love, or a poem embroidered on to the blanket.
This is something useful, easy, and fun that your loved one and you can enjoy on Valentine’s Day as you cuddle up for a movie, or eat a picnic at the park. It also doubles as a fun reminder of your love for time to come. The embroidered message can be as romantic as you want, an inside joke, a message of love etc. but will serve to remind the recipient for years of the love you have for them.
There are plenty of ways to make your Valentine’s Day evening more romantic through crafts because crafts add that personal touch that Valentine’s Day is all about. So, think about what you have planned, and create a craft around what you will spend your evening doing, whether that is that you create your own dishes to eat your dinner off, make your candles to light the night, or create a scrapbook of loving memories to fill your evening with joy.
