DIY Valentine’s Day Decor

Love is in the air! And so is your excitement to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day. Hearts, cupid angels and lace -- you can’t wait to add a splash of V-Day decor throughout your living space.

While you can certainly go to the store and purchase your Valentine’s Day decorations, you can also enjoy the holiday more by DIYing your own decor. Crafting is a great way to reduce stress, save money and enjoy the nostalgia of the days you used to make paper heart valentines for your parents and classmates.

Here are some of our favorite DIY Valentine’s Day decor ideas:

Framed Love Letters
Turn treasured love letters and cards into artwork by framing them! Use frames of different color and texture to create visual appeal. You can either hang the pieces on the wall or display them on your mantel!

Sew Valentine’s Day Pillowcases
Love to sew? Grab some red plaid fabric at your local craft store and make cases for your couch throw pillows.

Hot Chocolate Bar
It’s cold outside! Cozy up your home with a custom hot chocolate bar displayed in your kitchen or dining room. Keep different toppings such as chocolate nibs and marshmallows displayed in mason jars. Finish the display with a hand-lettered chalkboard sign.

Make a Festive Garland
Use the heart cards out of a deck you don’t use anymore to create a festive garland for your mantel. Pin the cards to a piece of string or twine and add tied pieces of fabric strips in between for added color and texture. Check out this great example!

DIY Love Sign
Visit your local craft store and purchase a plain wooden sign - any shape will do! Use stencils and acrylic paint to paint the word “Love” onto the sign. We recommend using metallic paint for an extra festive pop.

Valentine’s Day Mason Jars
Fill clear mason jars with conversation hearts or other pink and red candies. Place the mason jars out in your kitchen or on your dining room table on top of lace doilies or a burlap table runner.

Valentine’s Day Tree
Make a seasonal Valentine’s Day arrangement. Gather small branches and twigs from the backyard and adorn them with tiny hearts, cut out of red, pink and white construction or scrapbook paper. You can attach the paper hearts using baker’s twine. Once your twigs and branches are all decked out, place them in a vase, pitcher or jar and display the arrangement on your table or mantel.

Repurpose Wine Bottles
Add an eco-friendly element to your decor by recycling wine bottles! After rinsing them out, paint them red. Once the red paint has dried, spell out “Love” with white paint. Paint one letter per bottle and line them up on the counter or on your mantel! Fill them with flowers (dried, fresh or fake) or make Valentine’s trees like the craft above!
