Not only will you finish the project you have undertaken (aren’t there times when we have started on an activity and left it midway) but you will also have a great time while doing it. Here are few simple adult valentine craft ideas for this Valentine’s Day. These unique handmade crafts can add a special touch to your Valentines Day.

  • Several bunches of dried cockscomb (each with about eight stems)

Cut a yard of ribbon, fold it in half, and attach it to the back of the wreath with a T-pin to form a loop for hanging. After hanging the wreath from a tack in the wall, tie the remaining 2 yards of ribbon into a bow with long tails, and mount the bow on the tack with floral wire. That’s it!
