I found this cute and craft Valentine's Day idea at Gallamore West
via Pinterest. The rough edges of the burlap really add to the character of this heart wreath. This crafty blogger shares a tutorial so you can hang your own heart on a line.

This gorgeous heart mobile
from Being Brook (aka Being Awesome!) was crafted from old book pages ... so each heart tells a story. Just lovely! When Brook isn't busy being crafty, she's busy being generous - she shares complete instructions for crafting your own at her blog.

These beautiful lacy votive holders
were featured over at Martha Stewart, and I couldn't resist sharing the idea, too. The softness of the lace looks lovely in pastel pinks, and I'll bet the shadows cast by the lace are equally as stirring. Want to make your own? You'll find a complete how-to at the link.

This metallic letter artwork from Charming Zebra
proves that you don't need powder puff pinks to proclaim the language of love. This craft is perfect for Valentine's Day, but the technique - and even the words - would also work for Christmas or other holidays. What a beautiful message for anytime of the year!
