A Little Bit of Valentine's Day Decor

I mentioned the other day that I adore February. Not just that it is my birthday month,  but I just love the idea of celebrating Love. I know some people say that it is purely a Hallmark holiday, and honestly, I probably felt that way at some point in my life too. Not anymore though. I love the idea of celebrating love and the people I love. And of course I love all the fun decor that goes with it. 

So I decided to pull out the ol' Valentine's Day tub and sprinkle bits of red and pink around the house.

Nothing real fancy....just fun.

I like to get out heart-shaped cookie cutters for fun school sandwiches, Valentine's plates to eat on, and I even found "Toast Stamps" at Target's $ Spot.

And this little guy makes his appearance.

The last thing I got out today was this cute lil' heart wreath
 I made a couple years ago.

Unfortunately that was before I was blogging and didn't need pictures of the process. So, I'll try and explain the best I can. Otherwise there are lots of tutorials on Pinterest I'm sure.

FIrst, I found this sweet heart-shaped styrofoam wreath at Jo-Ann's 

along with some sparkly red felt (from either Jo-Ann's or Hobby Lobby).

After cutting what felt like a ton of (not so smooth) circles, I folded it in half

and then in half again. Then I stuck it with a greening pin (found at Walmart in the flower arranging section) and then stuck it into the wreath.

I just kept doing that again and again, sort of overlapping as I went. I also used a little hot glue in some places just to make sure it stayed put. So easy.

And there you have it. Isn't she pretty?

It makes my heart pitter patter every time I open my front door. Don't you just love Valentine's decor? I've got a few more things to show you later this week. :)

Quick Tip: I have a couple of fun plastic plates for my kids for each season/holiday. Keeping them put away with my other seasonal decor makes it an occasional fun little surprise at dinner time. Same goes with placemats, cookie cutters, holiday movies and books, etc. Keeping them put away with your other seasonal decor, not only keeps it in one spot, it helps me to remember to actually use them and makes them feel new again. Simple but true. Love that.

Pin It!
