Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I don’t usually do a lot but I have a few things that are a bit romantic and just seem like Valentine’s Decor that I get out. You really don’t need a bunch of hearts to make it feel like the Valentine’s Holiday. Here are some ways you can use things you have, craft if you want, or just add some flowers to make your home seem festive.
This is the one piece of frippery I own that is strictly Valentine’s decor. It has a little box it resides in most of the year and only comes out to play about January – right after the Christmas decor goes back to the basement.
I have a few cards that have been embellished or are vintage that are Valentine-y. I think this is the only one that made it out this year. I’ve been re-organizing and I can’t find the rest of them 😀
If you are into crafting these salt dough hearts are so fun! I first saw them at Number Fifty-Three blog and thought they were so cute! So I decided to make some.
You really should go see the ones at Number Fifty-Three – she used chalkboard paint on hers. I decided I wanted all gold for these. I have a few more to paint and I have another idea I’d like to try on them. And if you want to make some hears of your own you can find the recipe I used here – complete with photos of the process!
My sister hung her adorable red and white polka dot umbrella on the door in her guest room! What a fun way to add a pop of color in a unique and interesting way. And since red and white are traditional Valentine’s colors I’d say that qualifies as Valentine’s decor!
On the other door in the guest room my sister hung a hangerful of fun, colorful, ruffled scarves.
Fresh flowers are wonderful for any holiday. Pink and white roses just seem to say Valentine’s to me.
A few rose petals sprinkled here and there add a festive feel.
And I’m not above using faux flowers either! The gold tips on my deer go well with the gold hearts and the crepe paper flowers make him look like he’s ready for Spring instead of stuck in the aftermath of Christmas.
More faux flowers that almost look real, tucked into a silver trophy cup. Makes it feel like Spring will be appearing any day now!
Red striped and dotted tea cups add another hint of Valentine’s to my china cupboard. I love these cups and have several ideas for how I can use them this year. They came from IKEA and they say Made in France on the bottom. What’s not to love?!
