On to the business at hand. I want to share some of the very easy peasy Valentine decor ideas that I use in my home. All of the items that I am sharing I already have had on hand. I’ve used many of them for Christmas decor, or just everyday decor. All I did was shop my house for them.
I have been hording a huge bag of dried roses. Then I thought why not make some wreaths out of them. These were the simplest thing to make. I took old wire coat hangers, and strung the rose heads on them, I twisted the two ends of the wire together and added lace. I could have as easily made a heart but I liked the look of the circle. The one above is has a bit like potpourri.
Here is a larger one done in pink roses.
A white one hangs on my reindeer.
If I had more wire hangers and roses I think that I would have made them all day. Some of the roses were very fragile so be careful if you decide to make one they are pretty fragile.
As I was shopping my home for Valentine decor I came upon my old paperback book (I was gifted this from Santa when I was a young girl) “LOVE STORY” I add some twine on it and now its an art piece!
I’ve had this old wooden heart for years. After my grandmother passed I was given some old scrape books of hers and in one of them I found this card that was given to her by my parents for Valentines Day in 1950, it even had writing on it by my Mom. I took it apart and glued it on the front of the heart with hodgepodge. Now its preserved for ever.
My rusty bucket hold a piece of burlap with a few wooden hearts that my son Dane made for me when he was in Shop. I have used these hearts forever and this year I painted them and added some pretties.
Here one hangs from a basket.
I added some lovely sheet music.
Tucking in a wooden heart into a display makes any display become a Valentine vignette.
Here I just shopped my jewelry box to decorate one of my manikin’s.
I scattered a few great rusty hearts around.
I made these piggies when I was 18! They hang next to a tissue paper heart garland.
Last but not least I put out some scrabble tile words that describe Valentines Day. This one sits on my work bench, reminding me of my passion for decor, and family!
Have fun with Valentine decor it really doesn’t take much to add this lovely holiday into your home.
