We love hearts! Yes, of course, they are perfect for Valentines day but really, is there ever a time of year when hearts aren’t awesome? I thought not! Heart crafts are particularly popular this time of year but since we’re always loving on hearts, we’ve been collecting a few of our favorite heart themed crafts to give you some inspiration. Maybe you’ll make something for that special someone!

Simple Heart Craft for Toddlers - No Time for Flash Cards

Any mama will tell you that the very best gifts are ones made by little hands. I have something similar to these marker decorated hearts from when my little ones were small and I treasure them to this day. These are fun and super easy when made with cut up coffee filters, damp paper or thick paper towels. Your little ones will love to make them and your family will love to  them!

I’m a total sucker for candy hearts. Out of all the Valentines candies, these are my favorites (although I would never say no to a good chocolate truffle!) so I get such a kick out of these felt candy hearts. These would be adorable strung into a banner, added to the top of a package or filled with rice to make a sweet heart pack. So cute!

I’m a crafter, and thus, I love glitter. So this project brings two of my favorite things together. Hearts and Glitter! What could be better! I love that this project used colors other than pink and red but really any combination would make an adorable finished project. This could be super cute as a card or a more permanent wall display. Go glitter!
