Anything that you can cut a heart out of or paint a heart on, you can make into a Valentine.
Make your Valentine out of yarn. Or twine. Or twigs. Or hair. Or selvage. Or dried beans. Or dirt. Or ribbon. Or chain.
Anything you can glue down into the shape of “I Love You,” you can make into a Valentine.
Anything you can cut or bake or pipe into a heart shape, you can make into a Valentine.
It’s a sweet holiday. It doesn’t have to be fake, and it definitely doesn’t have to be Hallmark.
