Everybody loves hearts – how could you not? These heart crafts for adults are perfect for Valentine’s Day, or just to show your affection.
When I was younger I didn’t like hearts that much. I thought they were too girly – a little too Lisa Frank. I think I’ve softened as I’ve gotten older, because now I really like them. And not just for Valentine’s Day, but for all year round.
There is also plenty of modern craft inspiration out there as opposed to just poofy hearts . . . and I found a bunch. So if you are in the market for some great DIY heart ideas, then take a peek at these. You’re going to love these 20+ projects. Just scroll down to see them.
