Valentine’s Day is definitely not my favorite holiday. Yes, I know, not the best way to begin a post about Christian Valentine crafts, but hear me out!

As a perpetually single individual, V-day has often seemed like a mixed bag to me. It’s a holiday that celebrates love—in particular romantic love—and thus kind of overlooks those of us who haven’t ever found their “special someone”.

And sure, I know it can still be a great holiday to express love and celebrate with other family and friends, but the fact remains that, for a lot of people, Valentine’s Day can represent the love they don’t have, rather than the love they DO have.

Kind of like how I feel about listening to country music… I used to really enjoy it, until I realized that all those sappy love songs were just making me pine after something I didn’t have. Nowadays, I listen exclusively to Christian music, which makes me rejoice over what I DO have—the love of Jesus Christ!

So, when it comes to making Christian Valentine cards, DIY Valentine gifts, and Valentine décor, my goal in recent years has been to make things that share the love of Christ with others. Because nobody should feel left out or even downright unloved on Valentine’s! Even for those who are single, or whose parents were not very loving towards them growing up, or maybe the folks who are living in a new place and don’t have friends yet… The best Christian Valentine’s day ideas can remind them that God loves them, no matter what!

5 Awesome Christian Valentine Crafts

That’s what these easy DIY Valentine gifts and décor aim to do… to remind others that THEY ARE LOVED, and NOT FORGOTTEN! These Christian Valentine crafts are a sweet way to pass along the love of Christ to someone else.

Many of these projects are great to do with kids, to teach them about God’s love. And others are a bit more sophisticated—great for giving as gifts. But whatever you make, remember to back up the sentiment with REAL loving kindness towards every person. We can all do a better job of showing love, respect, mercy, and grace to others each day!

1) Valentine Prayer Box Craft Kit

5) Magnetic “You Are Loved” Valentine Card

Speaking of two-for-one… Last year, I designed these DIY Valentine gifts for coworkers, and gave one to each of my fellow employees (at my retail job). They function so well as coworker gifts, because there’s a magnet attached to the back, so they can go on places like lockers, metal desks, or the break room fridge. (I put them on my coworkers’ lockers).

To make these magnetic Christian Valentine crafts, simply print the Bible verses on cardstock, cut out the heart shapes as desired, and assemble. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the shapes from white cardstock and red cardstock, but you could also use some heart paper punches to do this, or cut the hearts by hand.

On the front side of the large hearts, I used this Hero Arts “All My Heart Peek-A-Boo Parts” stamp set (which is currently on sale at Scrapbook.com!) to add the gold hearts background on the front side, and “you are loved” on the little white hearts. The red scalloped heart + the little “you are loved” hearts are then attached to the bigger heart with double-sided craft adhesive.

At this point, you could give away these little Valentines as-is. Or, add the magnetic component, by gluing a ½ inch round magnet to the back of each card with craft glue (such as Aileen’s Tacky Glue). And, voila! A magnetic Valentine that serves as a beautiful reminder of God’s love and care for each of us. (Pictured below on my metal office drawers).

I hope you’ve enjoyed these awesome Christian Valentine crafts! At the very least, now you have some great ideas for Valentines that encourage others and remind them of how very loved they truly are. The only question that remains is, which craft will you make first?
