25 modern yarn crafts to DIY

yarn diy

Yarn. I know a lot of us have a love/hate relationship with the stuff, especially if you’ve tried (and failed) to knit or crochet. I, myself, went through a knitting phase after my sweet sister-in-law gave me a beginning knitting kit many birthdays ago. I made an assortment of potholders (for practice) and scarfs (given away as gifts), and while I enjoyed the process, alas, knitting wasn’t where my crafty heart lie. Nonetheless, I am always amazing at how many fabulous yarn tutorial are out there–especially ones, and these are my favorite, where no knitting/crocheting experience is required. I’ve gathered a bunch of my favorites, and am excited to share them with you today!

20 valentine’s day crafts and tutorials

valentines day crafts

I’ll admit-for a crafts-related blogger, I don’t tend to decorate for a lot of the holidays. My mantle, for instance, hasn’t changed since Christmas, and I’m okay with that. So when I do decorate, I like creative and simple crafts that don’t take a lot of time. And if we’re talking Valentine’s Day crafts, I don’t want anything overly cutesy or over-the-top that won’t fit in with my everyday décor (unless my kids are involved, then I’ll welcome it all into my home, cutesy and over-the-top included). So today, I’m sharing 20 creative V-Day crafts with a modern edge that you’ll love to add to your holiday décor! Enjoy!
