Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Don has been begging me to decorate, so a few days ago we put up the small box of decorations that has been in storage. For smaller holidays, I like to keep things simple while still being festive. I did add a little Valentine’s art that I have available for a free download if you keep reading!
I think my front door is pretty festive! Adding a heart wreath was icing on the cake. I’ve had this wreath in storage for years. Personally, shopping is fun, but I think its also ok to buy things you love and use them year after year.
A few years ago, I made these heart garlands. It was super simple- a heart paper punch with lots of pink paper that I sewed together. I also hand stitched that love garland with some felt (here’s the full tutorial). These were both projects that cost around $5 that I’ve reused many times.
I think some times the blogosphere can be full of consumerism. I but lots of things for my house, but I also want to pass on the reminder that you can love what you have and make things on a budget that are fun and festive.
This pink cast iron pot is the shape of a heart and SO cute!!! I’ve wanted a pink pot like this sooooo bad, but they’re usually over $100 (ouch)! When this finally went on sale for $30 I snapped it up.
In the living room, I hung (with Scotch tape) more of the heart garlands. Here is also where the “it was always you” art went. Isn’t it perfect for Valentine’s Day?! You can get it as a free download if you sign up for my newsletter here:
For me, adding art at the holidays is fun and affordable- the art cost me less than $1 to print and I used a frame I had on hand. Personally, I think there are times to splurge! A holiday doesn’t have to be. I hope you love these ideas!
