Feminist Valentines All Around (Free Printables)

It’s that time again! That time of year when our conversations turn to debates about the legitimacy of Valentine’s Day. Is it worth celebrating? Is it just a faux holiday created by greeting card companies? Do we really need an excuse to eat an entire chocolate cake?

My responses are “meh,” “meh,” and “JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE PEOPLE.” And to that end I present to you my favourite way to celebrate Valentine’s. I want everyone to love one another in the best, fun, consensual ways possible! So, here for your printing pleasure are Feminist Valentines, just for you from yours truly.

I hope you enjoy sharing these as much as I enjoyed making them. Spread the love and spread the feminism loudly, lovingly, and with abandon.

  • If you’re fine with a solid white wreath, this is a great place to stop!
  • Personally, I’m adding touches of gold to my holiday decorating
  • If you have any craft paint and sponges lying around, you can add this finishing touch for free. My paint is from the dollar store so it’s a minimal addition.

  • Using a sponge brush, lightly highlight the tips of the filters with your paint

  • Once the paint is dry, add a ribbon or string and hang where ever your home needs a holiday touch
