Decorate to Your Heart’s Desire: 5 Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Decorations

When it comes to holidays, I am a force to be reckoned with. While I go all-out for Christmas, my soul houses a year-round holiday spirit. My friends and family have come to expect a decorated house—or apartment. For some reason, I have yet to decorate with people other than my sisters though. Therefore, I have included five easy DIY Valentine’s Day decorations to bring the festive mood into your home.

1. Tree of Love

Hang hearts from the branches, or glue them directly on. This can be an inside or outside project. Whether it is cut-out paper hearts or themed candy, your trees or plant will pop with color and love.


2. Overflowing with Love

This one is possibly the easiest one on this list. Find a fancy-looking glass, cup or bowl and pile hearts in it. If you want to make it look like it is overflowing, use clear fishing line and/or glue. 


3. Candy Dish

The only reason I say that this one might be a little more difficult than the previous is because you have to either go to the store and buy candy or make homemade candy. Both of those can require a lot of effort, depending on your location and mood. However, I think it is totally worth it because it is a two-in-one: snack and decoration.


4. Cascading Hearts

Instead of ordinary garland, try hanging up these vertical cascading hearts. Follow the link for a step-by-step process on how to make the hearts 3-D.


5. Flowers and Jars

While this title is pretty self-explanatory, you can personalize mason jars quite easily. Whether you paint them, stuff them with flowers and lights or even just fill them with candy or hearts, mason jars are all-encompassing.


I hope these decoration ideas have inspired you in some kind of way. Feel free to add your own twist to these ideas or create completely new ones! I hope your heart and home are overflowing with love this Valentine’s Day season. XOXO!
