I’m a huge fan of garlands because they’re a really easy way to decorate for an upcoming holiday or party. While Valentine’s Day isn’t quite as popular a holiday to decorate for than some of the other ones, you can’t deny that the decorations are adorable! Here are some easy ways to add some Valentine’s Day festivity to your home with garlands.
You see what I did there? I guess I’m still not over the Punny Valentines trend. It’s the time of the year to be surrounded by hearts, but what is so great about this adorable symbol of love is that they never look out of place!

Create a pretty Valentine’s Day decoration with an unlikely craft supply–coffee filters. Dye the coffee filters to your favorite color, and create this heart that appears to be made out of roses. This heart couldn’t be sweeter!
When my oldest niece (now 15!) Crystal was a Kindergartner, we made these Heart & Lollipop Valentines Flowers and we had so much fun. If you’re looking to create something with your young ones (and old ones for that matter), this is a fun and easy one. They also make for a great card as opposed to the typical cards you find at the local store. This idea came from Martha Stewart’s site, and I tweaked a few things here and there.
I have to admit I’m not all that into Valentine’s Day as a romantic holiday. My husband and I usually avoid crowded restaurants and prefer to celebrate President’s Day. However, as a kid I loved Valentine’s Day. My mom would put out small gifts for us to find in the morning – candy and dress up jewelry. Sometimes our parents would even set up a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt with chocolates and small toys as the prizes. Here are some more kid friendly Valentine’s Day craft activities to help you celebrate as a whole family!
These fortune cookies make unique valentines, with fun messages for the whole family.
I don’t know why, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day I draw a blank. I love the holiday, but I always need new ideas for creating budget friendly Valentine’s Day decor. Here are some Valentine’s Day Crafts to brighten your doorway and around the home. All of these crafts can be made inexpensively and hopefully from leftover fabrics, and scrap booking paper you have around the house.
I went a little burlap crazy this holiday season, so I have lots left over for this beautiful Burlap Heart! I just love the color contrast of natural and red in this door hanger.
