5 Crafts and Recipe Ideas for Valentine’s Day

5 Creative Valentines Day Crafts and Recipe Ideas | #LivingCreative | Living Locurto | Living Creative Thursday

Living Creative Thursday is back!! I personally think I have some of THE MOST creative readers out there. I love being able to give back and share the love, especially with those of you who give so much support to me here at Living Locurto.

Last year, I came up with a community project called Living Creative Thursdays. Where each Thursday you are encouraged to share your creative projects via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

Just by using the hashtag #LivingCreative, we can all share with each other and I can find projects to feature here as well.

Living Creative Themes

From now on, I will have a weekly themes to make it easier for us to share. You are always welcome to share ANY kind of creative project, but having a theme will make it easier for me to feature projects here that are relevant with the seasons.

Please save the following graphic, Pin to Pinterest or share on Facebook and Instagram to help spread the word. Thanks!!

Creative Craft and Recipe Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Last Thursday, I asked those of you on Facebook to share your creative ideas and I was wowed by so many projects. Here are 5 creative craft and recipe ideas for Valentine’s Day! Please let me know what you are doing to be creative or leave a link to your creative ideas in the comment section below.

Enjoy these great Valentine’s Day ideas!!

Push Pop Holder Craft

Ever wonder how party planners get their cake pops and push pops to stand up so cute? Nancy with A to Zebra Celebrations shares her secret for making an adorable, Valentine’s Day Glitter Covered Push Pop Stand. I love the ribbon detail!



Chocolate lovers get ready for this amazingly sinful treat by Cheryl from Tidymom. You will drool over her Brownie Sandwich Cookies with Cookie Dough Frosting. My mouth is watering right now. Forget candy, these would be a perfect Valentine’s Day treat for a chocoholic like me!


glitter chalk valentine

Michele from The Scrap Shoppe Blog made Homemade Glitter Chalk for Valentine’s Day Gifts. She even has free printable chalk labels to make the gift complete. My daughter and her friends would love this!



I had no idea you could even do this… Tracie from Cleverly Inspired made Hot Cocoa on a Stick!! What a super cute idea!



I absolutely love these adorable Cupcake Candy Jars that Christy from Thrifty and Thriving made! These are not made with food, but with white caulk. I know I have some caulk in my garage someplace. Now I’m off to find it! This unique idea was found over at Club.Chicacircle.com, but I love how Christy created a one of a kind Valentine’s Day Gift with it.
