These cute craft projects make great shelf decorations for Valentine's Day. To craft the collage, cut out repeating shapes from fabric and use spray adhesive to mount on white cardstock frame. For more advanced crafters, pencil a design on a store-bought canvas, and then sew over your drawing using a thick needle.

Dress up a plain throw pillow for Valentine's day by adding the word "love" with stencils and fabric paint. Cut out your own letters or buy a set of stencils, available at crafts stores, for a quick design.

Send your valentine a sweet love note with a special surprise inside: pretty handcrafted votive candle sleeves that spell out a romantic message.

Make a garland of hearts cut from fabric scraps layered and attached with iron-on adhesive. Punch small holes in the sides of the hearts and tie them together with ribbon.

To create this cute heart wreath use paper punches or scissors to cut hearts from colored lightweight decorative paper. Curl the cutout hearts by scraping them between your thumb and a butter knife just as you would with curling ribbon. Then layer them on the round cardstock base and attach each with a dab of clear-drying glue, either in the center or near one edge. Hang the wreath with ribbon.
