Valentine Décor & a Valentine Day’s Blog Hop

Come check out my Valentine's day decor and check out what my friends created for our blog hop!

Hi everyone!   I am back to share some of our Valentine decor with you.  I had hoped to share a “simple” Valentine craft of felt hearts.  However, when I made them they didn’t turn out to be very “simple” or closely resemble hearts:)…so instead, here’s how we decorate for Valentine’s Day.  I am joining in with a lot of my more crafty and creative blogging friends so there will be tons of great Valentines ideas for you!!!  Thanks so much to my friend Danielle at Creatively Homespun for arranging this fun Valentine’s Day hop.

Valentine Blog Hop

Since winter can be void of color especially here in Pa I love adding some pops of red and hearts to my décor.  Since our front door is already red I hang my Valentine’s Heart Shaped Book Page Wreath on it. It really pops on the red door and so easy to make.

The inside of the door has a wooden “Love You to the Moon and Back” heart sign I found on the boardwalk and a heart that Jason’s grandma made from a quilt she was making.  Audrey helped me hang a few sticky hearts to the window too:).  I usually try to keep the sticky holiday décor to a minimum especially at the front door:).  If it was up to the kids that whole window would be plastered with snowmen and hearts:)… not that there is anything wrong with that!

Our living room mantel is a lot of fun to decorate for any holiday.  The white is the perfect backdrop for the pops of pink and red for Valentine’s day.  The centerpiece of my Valentine mantel is my new Pallet Wreath ( DIY coming to the blog soon:).

I hung one of my clay hearts I made last year on it to give it a little Valentine flair.

The garland I made a few years ago from cardstock that I hole punched and threaded some ribbon through.  Easy peasy:).  Now that is a very simple heart craft for someone to make!

The rest of my mantel just has everyday items like candles, oil lamps and cloches I used year round.  I love to use glassware and change it out seasonally.

I added a red candle, a red votive, some faux cranberries a red cyclamen I bought for $3.50 from Trader Joe’s to add even more color and texture to the mantel.

The few felt hearts that made the cut I placed in a basket with some pinecones.  The hearts seemed simple enough to make just hearts cut from white felt and sewed shut with a little stuffing and string.  It just took way longer than I thought it would take.  I may try again once my sewing machine is fixed rather than make them by hand:).

I really like how the white contrasts with the brown.  So far Moose has only eaten one of these:).

I placed some fresh flowers on our end table along with a ceramic house I found at target for $5 at an after Christmas sale:).  You gotta love those after holiday sales!

And no Valentine décor would look right without Valentine Conversation hearts.  This jar will not stay full for long.  This is the 3rd bag I had to refill, the kids love to sneak them:).  They aren’t fooling anyone but I let them get away with it because I love eating them too.

I hung the rest of my clay hearts on my family room mantel on a faux snowy lit tree from Restoration Hardware.

My favorite Valentine decoration is my stained glass red heart hanging from my kitchen window.  I added a few more pops of red in the window to go with it.

Lastly, I love to change out my chalkboard in the kitchen often to reflect whatever season we are in:).

  1. Love those little clay hearts, Taram and I’m a big fan of both your book page wreath and that stained glass heart! The conversation hearts would last all of about 3.5 seconds in this house. Loved the tour.. sorry for the project fail though! It happens to all of us ALL of the time! So glad to be on the hop with you and thanks for all of your work putting the inLinkz together. xoxo

    1. Hi Kim! Thanks so much for all your sweet comments about my Valentine décor! Believe me those conversation hearts don’t last much more than 3.5 seconds in our house either:).

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments Marie! I will be sharing about how we made the pallet wreath soon:). Take care, Tara
