15 Simple DIY Valentine Decorating Ideas for your home <3
When you think of Valentine’s Day you probably think of hearts, doilies and tissue paper crafts. All of those are cute when your 7 years old but older you might not think so. I love decorating for Valentine’s day, in fact, I love Valentine’s day whether I’m in a relationship or not. This year I went on a quest through the vast Internet to find some Valentine’s Day crafts to decorate my home with that are simple and super affordable. So now I present to you my favorite 15! Enjoy.
Mason Jar Candles
The great things about these jars are that they are totally customizable! Use your favorite song’s sheet music or even your favorite novel! Why not put flowers in them or give them as a gift! You could even fill them with candy hearts to make them more colorful. The possibilities are endless with these jars.
Heart Yarn Ornaments
Check out these cute ornaments! I’ve actually had the chance to make these a couple years ago, so I was pretty excited when I found the instructions to make them again. These hearts can be hung on anything and anywhere.
Print these cute heart candy graphics out and frame them. Easy, cheap and completely adorable! Get creative and use different or vintage frames.
XO Candy Jars
Love is sweet and your Valentine decorations should be too. Basically, take any mason jar and candle stick to create a unique way to display your sweets. You can even get creative and spell L-O-V-E with four jars. Use different candlestick lengths to create a different looks.
Rose Bouquet Ball
Classic and simple, this rose bouquet ball is beautiful. Not only is this great to know how to make for Valentine’s Day but could also be useful for decorating birthday parties, weddings or baby showers!
Ruffled Heart Wreath
Felt is one of the easiest materials to work with. This wreath is a little time consuming but totally worth it! You can put on your favorite movie while you’re cutting out some circles. Use a few different shades of pink to create an ombre effect by going from darkest to lightest.
Love String Art
String art projects are so enjoyable. All you’ll need is a piece of wood or a canvas; plenty of nails, string and of course a hammer. Just Print out your image or letters and cut out to create a template. Trace the image lightly or just tape image down and hammer nails around it. Finally, break out the string and go to town!
Burlap Valentine’s Garland
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some garland. I love the look of the burlap with classic little red hearts. So pretty!
Felt Heart Tree
Here’s another great felt craft! Why should Christmas be the only holiday to get a tree?! I think everyone should have one of these cute heart trees in their home. Add glitter for a fun twist or create a more dimensional look with different shades of red and pink.
Valentine’s Day Watercolor Art
This project is addictive and easy! It gives you a lot of room to be extremely creative or just simple. Either way you go it’ll look perfect. Put your finished pictures in cute frames or just simply hang them up!
No Sew Burlap Heart Pillow
Throw pillows can add a pop of color to any room but sewing can take too much time. That’s why I love this no sew pillow idea. Again, you can be creative! Instead of hearts add some x’s and o’s.
Geometric Wall Heart
Cut out some triangles and hang them on the wall to create a giant heart. I love how the gold triangles in this project pop! I’d leave this up all year around because it’s so adorable!
Valentine’s Day Tablescape
Show your dinning room some love too with this cute tablescape idea. The chalkboard runner is so much fun. You can doodle ‘til your hearts content while you enjoy your sweet day. You can even use the mason jars above to create a whole different look.
This mobile is so fun to make! It reminds me of projects I used to do as a kid. The hearts come out so pretty and when they catch the light from outside they look radiant. Use shades or red and pink or even purple to make the perfect mobile.
Embellished Wine Bottles
Have some empty wine bottles? If yes, then this project is perfect for you. These bottles are so cute. You can use them on the Valentine’s Day tablescape you’re going to make or just use them as decoration on their own. I also think they’d be cute with daisies in them!
