Handmade Valentine’s Day Gifts are a fun way to let friends know you care about them for Valentine’s Day. I love making crocheted garlands and the Mini Heart Garland is the perfect way to send your love to your friends and family. Use these garlands to add a little love to your gift wrapping, decorate a cake or a party platter or just drop one in an envelope and pop it in the mail to let someone know you’re thinking about them.
You know that I love to keep coming up with new versions of my patterns and kits. I absolutely love this Ombre version of my Mini Hearts Garland Kit. Now I have three different Heart Garland kits to choose from! The Ombre Mini-Heart Garland Kit comes with five different colors of Eco-Butterfly Linen – Snow Owl, Adobe Rose, Sedona, Poppy and Aubergine. You can make each strand separately to gift them to your favorite people or or string them together to make a beautiful ombre decoration.
If Ombre isn’t your thing, you can also choose the original Crochet Mini Hearts Garland Kit. It includes a full skein of your favorite color of Eco-Butterfly Linen. Use it to make a large garland with 50 hearts or five smaller 10-heart strands. If you love tiny things, then the Teeny Heart Garland Kit is made just for you! This kit includes your choice of Valdani Thread colors.
:: The Heart Garland Pattern with detailed step-by-step photos of how to make the hearts and connect them in a garland
:: Crochet Hook (1.5 mm for the Teeny Hearts – US1/2.35 mm for the Mini Hearts)
:: Sewing Needle to weave in ends
:: Small Black Clippers
:: Cardboard Envelope with Twine Tie for giving
Another fun choice for handmade Valentine’s Day gifts is the Large Hand Crochet Heart. It can be hung up or set on a table to remind your Valentine’s how much you care about them year round. It takes about 20 minutes to make and the kit includes everything you need to make it and detailed instructions on how to hand crochet. You don’t need any tools!
The Woven Heart Jewelry Dish is a wonderful project for new and experienced weavers. It’s a fun and quick project to make and you’ll make something that everyone needs by their bedside! Plus, you’ll learn techniques that can be used to make any shape you’d like in your weaving.
Or, if hearts aren’t your thing, try making these beautiful Coiled Jewelry Dishes. Each kit makes six small dishes, so they’re perfect for gifting!
Or, if knitting is your thing, here’s a free pattern: try this Giant Knit Heart and pack it with treats!
I feel like right is the time to spread all the love we can – go get working on those handmade Valentine’s Day gifts and send your friends and family your love!
