Valentine’s Day Decor

In my previous post I showed a Valentine’s day wreath I made, so it only seemed right to show off a little more of my Valentine’s Day Decorating for you!! I enjoy having my house look festive no matter what the occasion!! However, I don’t like spending a lot of money to accomplish this idea!! As easy as it would be to pick up every adorable holiday decoration I find at hobby lobby, I have to practice some self restraint for the sake of my wallet!! For the centerpiece on my  table I cheated a bit and dragged some of my Christmas decorations over into valentine’s!! For Christmas I had the same tray with the same white candles sitting on a cake stand and berries. However I had no red tablecloth and had green placemats instead!!  To crossover into Valentine’s I just added the red tablecloth, a red and white ribbon woven around my tray, and created some different sizes of hearts out of red vinyl paper and stuck them onto the candles!! As a finishing touch I sprinkled some conversation hearts on the tray leading off onto the table bit!! (I may have eaten a few in the process!!) Let me know what you think!! Enjoy, and happy decorating!! 🙂 Image

Valentine’s Day Wreath

Image

The front door on my house is pretty plain, so these past few holidays/seasons I have really gotten into making a wreath for the door to jazz it up a bit!! This wreath I made for Valentine’s Day was incredibly simple and didn’t take longer than about an hour. I don’t know about you, but I always love getting things on sale!! Everything used to make this wreath was on sale this past week at Hobby Lobby (as most things there usually are). You can always check online to see what items are on sale that week. BIG TIP: It seems like a lot of people don’t know about this, but if you have a smart phone and an item you want to purchase isn’t on sale at the time, you can just look up “Hobby Lobby Coupon” and a coupon on their website will actually come up for 40% off on regular priced item which is still a good bargain!! 🙂

Materials:

1 spool of Valentine’s Heart Burlap Ribbon

1 Medium Sized (not large) Vine Wreath from the floral department. If you want a larger wreath I would get 2 spools of the burlap ribbon instead of just 1.

1 Spool of Red Velvet Christmas Ribbon (90% off!!)

1 Heart cut out of patterned scrapbook paper

Twine

Instructions:

This wreath was incredibly easy to make and I loved how inexpensive it was!!

-Unwind your spool of Valentine’s ribbon.

-Start weaving the burlap ribbon in and out of the vines of your wreath (Sometimes you can just tuck the ribbon in between vines and it will stay put just fine!!)

– After you have gone around the entire wreath with the burlap ribbon make a red bow with the velvet ribbon and off-set it on the left hand corner.

-Secure your red bow with some twine

-Poke 2 holes in your paper heart and pull the twine through the front in order to secure it on top of the bow.

-Hang it on your door and enjoy your masterpiece!! 🙂

Good luck!! Let me know how yours turns out!!
