DIY Door Valentines
We really enjoy Valentine’s Day at our house. From the crafts to the treats and parties we love to celebrate a holiday all about LOVE. I’ve seen this done a few ways over the years as a way to make kids feel special at Valentine’s Day: covering their door with hearts with messages. I decided instead of me writing out all of the hearts we would put our own little spin on it and make it a place for the whole family to let each other know how much we love them during the month. We got a Kid Made Modern Valentine’s Craft Collection box and got to work.
First I explained the goal to all of the kids: during the first 2 weeks of February, leading up to Valentine’s Day, we’d make hearts for each other and stick them to their doors. Since the 3 boys share a room, we decided one would get the door to the room, one would get the closet door and for Teddy: we’d decorate the outside of one of one side of his crib. My girls love Valentine’s Day decor so they were excited the doors to their new rooms would look decorated.
I said to kick things off, they should each make one per person in the family. I said I would then put those up February 1st and after that they could make and add hearts to each others doors as they please. I suggested that if their sibling did something nice for them or they did a great job at a sports game… really any reason to “add a heart” they should. I can’t wait to see how the doors look by Valentine’s Day!
- Valentine's Craft Collection
- Ideas for special messages
Using the hearts in the Valentine Craft Collection and using the assorted paper to cut more hearts create beautiful hearts to decorate family members doors. Add their name, something they're good at, something you love about them, etc. Designate a door per family member and add messages the first 2 weeks of February. On Valentine's Day enjoy all the smiles your "door of hearts" brings!
The Valentine’s Craft Collection box from Kid Made Modern is perfect for this project. There are tons of hearts, paper, decorations, etc. It even includes glue & glue dots. All of the hearts you see in these photos we made using what was inside the box. It comes with over 250 pieces and I love that you can put it all back into the box to craft more later. I told the kids I’d leave the box out during the next few weeks so they could add more hearts to the doors.
