Bead Crafts for Valentine’s Day

I love and adore Valentine’s Day crafts…Don’t you? There are zillions of different things you could make for Valentine’s Day — and pretty beaded baubles top the list of sweetly romantic things I want to make for myself.

This little beaded crochet heart shape is one of my favorite useful Valentine craft projects. It’s really versatile! I’ve made bunches of these — some to wear and some to use as photo frames in my scrapbooks:

If you like this idea, you can grab the free pattern for crocheting your own pretty beaded hearts. There’s also a free step-by-step tutorial for learning the crochet technique you’ll use, which involves both beads and wire; it’s different from the usual bead crochet technique, so this project gives you a chance to try something new. One of the things I really LOVE about this project is that it holds its shape on its own, without you having to mess around with making glue solutions or using sticky spray starch.


These ideas only just scratch the surface of what is possible to make for Valentine’s Day using beads. Want even more ideas? Check these out:
