DIY Valentine’s Day Decorations

Ok, I admit it. I don’t want to take down my Christmas decorations. I know the holiday is over, I know it’s time to move on. But I love the warm feel that the strings of lights give our house. And let’s face it, digging the storage boxes out of the garage and strategically packaging up each individual ornament is not going to be fun.
I’m trying to motivate myself by focusing on the next holiday. I’ve never decorated for Valentine’s Day before and let’s be honest, we have quite a lot of love in our home already. :] But, if it helps me get over my current Christmas decoration nostalgia, I’m going to try it. I’ve been searching Pinterest for some inspiration and found all kinds of fun ideas I want to try now.
Love how colorful and easy (and cheap!) this garland is.
How cute it this love banner Elsie made for her wedding?
 Great tutorial for making paper flowers.
 Adorable wreath that would be so easy to make.
 More paper garland made out of book pages!
 Add a touch of red to every day things!
What do you guys think? Do you have a hard time taking down the Christmas decorations or are you excited to get them out of the house? And do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?

    seriously though! using paint color strips for your cutout hearts!? SO brilliant! Can be used for anything! Such a great idea :)

    These are some really great ideas. I love the heart garland made from the paint sample cards. I see a lot of stuff made using pages from books to. I really like that look to. Thank you for sharing these wonderful ideas.

    We never take down our decorations until the end of January. But we have a seasonal business so we call it Christmas in January. This year we were so busy we didn’t decorate at all and ended up enjoying the decorations at a hotel. These are great ideas so I can at least decorate for Valentines Day.

    I love the simplicity of that wreath.

    I’m partial to the paper flowers. I made fabric flowers all winter for wreaths, hats, etc., so this is a good “twist” on that obsession. I love decorating for Valentine’s Day, in part because it’s a throwback to childhood, and in part because it’s so wonderful to create a romantic environment.

    Hello,
    I love the heart garland…I can’t seem to find that cute heart paper punch. I like how yours is longer/slimmer then the classic heart. Any suggestions on where I can find it??
