Valentine’s Crochet Baskets Set Pattern


crochet valentine's basket free pattern

I usually don’t go crazy with decorations for Valentine’s Day but love to set the mood with few pieces here and there. Valentine’s Day is another excuse to redecorate our homes after Christmas, amirite?! It’s fun getting into the spirit of the holiday, bonus if these decorations can be practical. Enter Valentine’s baskets! I can use these Valentines’ baskets long after the holiday is gone and put all my makeup and creams in there.
