We hope you liked our first three Valentineâ€™s Day decorating projects. Here weâ€™ll cover the remaining three, which are fun and easy to make, as well as a beautiful addition to your home during the holiday.
4) Festive Accent Pillow
Accent pillows are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to add some holiday flair to your home. For Valentineâ€™s Day, dress up a plain pillow using stencils and fabric paint. Words such as â€œlove,â€ â€œkiss me,â€ or â€œbe mineâ€ can easily be stenciled on a plain pillow of your choice. For additional flair, alternate the colors for each letter. And donâ€™t hesitate to cut out your own letters, rather than purchasing readymade stencils.
5) Hearts Garland
Garlands can dress up any mantel, headboard, cabinetry or mirror. And they donâ€™t just have to be made out of greenery either. For a quick but pretty garland, grab some patterned hard stock paper and cut out oversized hearts. Cut parallel vertical slits near the center of each heart and then thread them together using valentine-themed ribbon.
A bit more time-consuming, but definitely worth the effort, is a garland of hearts made from fabric. To create, cut hearts of two different sizes from fabric scraps. Lay the smaller heart over the larger, attaching it with iron-on adhesive, for a fun, layered look. Punch small holes in the sides, tie them together with ribbon and string it up!
6) Creative Candles
Candles are always a nice touch no matter what the occasion. For something simple, take plain glass votive candleholders and fill the bottom with candy nonpareils in valentine colors. You can also use small beads. Place the votive candle inside and youâ€™re done!
Another option is to take tall pillar candles or glass candleholders and wrap them with ribbon. Lacy designs and ribbon in shades of red and pink are perfect for Valentineâ€™s Day dÃ©cor. To hold your ribbon in place, use double-sided tape.
Before you toss out any old glassware, consider reusing smaller glasses as candleholders by etching them with festive motifs. Etching kits can be found at craft stores and are easy to use. Etch glasses with hearts or words, add a candle and enjoy!
