I Love You
Valentine's Day Craft

Saying I love you is easy but some people not used to say it loudly. Probably giving someone a present with these words would be easier. Let the gift speaks for itself :) 

Recently I made a Valentine's day craft from salt dough and cold porcelain clay and jewelry beads with those 3 magic words.

Say I love you with your handmade Valentine's day craft.

If you send your loved one traditional Valentine's gift like chocolates and flowers, I would suggest you to slip in your craft in the card's envelope. Don't forget to tell the recipient that it is handmade - made with love. Sweet, isn't it? 

Let me share the steps to make I love you Valentine's day craft.

Steps to make "I love you" Valentine's craft"


Say I love you with your handmade Valentine's day craft.
  • Salt dough  for base
  • Cold porcelain clay for heart and words (use red and black clay color)
  • Jewelry bead (heart shape stone would be ideal),  pearl, jewelry pins
  • Stainless steel wire
  • Round cookie's cutter
  • Wire cutter and round nose pliers
  • Drinking straw
  • Glue stick and gun
  • Magnet or ropes

Step 1:

  • First of all, make the base from salt dough. Start with ball shape clay, flatten it and cut with round cookie's cutter.
  • Make a hole with drinking straw. You can have two holes if you want to hang the piece later on.
  • Let it dry. You can bake your salt dough or let it dry in room temperature which will take about 3-4 days depend on the size and thickness of the clay.

Step 2:

  • Make the heart now. I prefer cold porcelain clay than salt dough for the heart because it's smoother and nicer. But, you can make your heart from salt dough if it is easier for you. 
  • You can then make an "I" and "U" from black color clay. 

Step 3:

  • Use your round nose pliers to curl up the wire to big oval shape and insert it to the hole in round clay base. 
  • Start decorating your craft piece with pearl, heart shape gem or other accessories you have. 

Step 4:

  • When the heart dry, paste it to the clay base. I use glue gun and glue stick. 
  • Also, paste the magnet at the back of the clay base.
  • If you prefer to hang this craft, insert the rope or ribbon to the other hole in the clay base.

Enjoy your craft!
