Hi, everyone! Valentine’s day is just around the corner. I have a fun and easy DIY Valentine’s card with embroidery thread that your loved one will adore! My daughter completed the majority of the project, but she let me take photos along the way.
You will likely be able to complete this simple craft with supplies you have at home. It’s a simple craft that kids will love. As I mentioned, my daughter did the majority of this home made card DIY with very little assistance from me.

Steps for Valentine’s card with embroidery thread:
1) Trace the heart (we used a foam heart we had at home)
2) Push holes through the card with your needle along your heart tracing.
3) Finally, thread the card and tie it off on the back side when you are finished.
Grab the embroidery thread of choice. We selected red for the traditional Valentine’s card.
Use your heart stencil to trace (very lightly with pencil) the heart. We had a felt heart in our craft supplies, but you could easily print out a heart online and use that as your stencil.
Use your needle to push holes into the card.
Thread the string through the holes in various directions. Fill it in as much or as little as you’d like! Keep in mind, the thicker thread will make it challenging to close and fit in the envelope. Due to this, we stopped here!
You could also make it in a variety of other shapes and/or colors! String art never gets old.
Happy card making!
