Hi there! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m so excited to share a super easy, super fun little project with you! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to make crafts for, it ranks up there with Halloween for sure! Now don’t get me wrong, I do love everything Christmas, but it’s always so crazy busy around the holidays that we just don’t always have time to sit down and do some crafts.

I have a tendency to buy way too many of one thing for a craft, like when I made a cute Cupcake Liner Banner, I was using up just a few of the hundreds of cupcake liners I bought to make a wreath earlier in the year.

Paper straws are also my weakness, especially when I find them in the Target Dollar Spot in so many prints and colors. Obviously buying craft supplies in moderation is something I need to work on! Nonetheless, these paper straw toppers are the perfect little touch for your Valentine’s Day party ideas.

Valentine’s Day Party Ideas: Straw Topper Craft Tips

  • Print the heart printables out on cardstock – the thicker paper will help keep the hearts from looking too floppy.
  • If you are making this with younger kids, cut out the hearts ahead of time.
  • Do not use glitter if you plan to use these with food or drinks!
