Dollar Tree Craft Ideas for Valentine's Day

Making crafts for Valentine's Day does not need to be pricey. Stock up on items from your local dollar store and use items you already have at home.

Valentine vase fillers and foam hearts can be purchased and transformed into wreaths. If you are looking for mini items, be sure to check the fairy garden section of the store as you can often see cute things like mini cupcakes and mini unicorns, which will be perfect for a kissing booth craft. Pizza pans can be used to make romantic signs with the addition of pretty craft paper and battery-operated firefly lights.

Check out the ideas below for more inspiration.
