Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to share these fun, cute, and budget friendly decorations I have made. Three of these decorations can be made in a short amount of time, but the ribbon wreath does take time. I will share another way to complete the ribbon wreath that is easier and quicker. All of these crafts are mostly made with supplies from the Dollar Tree. I have tons of scrapbook paper (I love scrapbook paper) so I always try to use what I have. I love putting out my Valentine’s decorations now because they all match.
LOVE Picture Frame
4 3×5 Black Picture Frames (Dollar Tree)
Valentines Scrapbook Paper
Valentines Stickers (Dollar Tree)
To make this I cut 4 3×5 rectangles in the pink card stock, then I cut the letters for LOVE in valentines paper. I added on valentines stickers as accents and the project was complete. One of the best things about this decoration is you can make it your own with any color paper you would like to use, I’m a pink girl so I always decorate with pink for Valentine’s. I cut my letters and the paper on my Cricut Explore, but this could easily be done by tracing and cutting letters.
Twine Tree (Target Dollar Section)
Adhesive Technologies 05694 Mini Hi-Temp Glue Gun (& Combo Pack) Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
To make this I taped the hearts to the tree to get an idea of where they looked good and then I hot glued them onto the tree once I liked the way it looked. That’s it! Super easy, cute decoration. I did find this twine tree at the Target Dollar Section, but it can easily be made with a foam cone shape and twine. I bought the felt hearts at the craft store, but I can’t remember which one (I love them all and go to them all).
Valentines Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
To make this I cut a piece of red twine that would fit in our front window, so cut your red twine to the length of where you want the garland. Sorry the picture is dark, but we haven’t had many sunny days here. Plus I forget to take a picture on a sunny day. Then I cut my Valentines ribbon about 6 inches long. Then all you have to do is tie it onto the red twine. I did go back after tying all the ribbon and cut it so it looked even. I look at the valentines garland every year at the craft store and it’s so expensive and now I have my own.
Materials for Valentine’s Day Wreath
Wire Wreath Frame
Valentines Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
To make this I cut all my ribbon 6 inches long so it was ready. Now I made this wreath super full and it has tons of ribbon. I went way over board, but I love it. I’m not sure I’ll ever make another one this full because it took me a couple days, honestly my fingers got tired from tying the ribbon. I made this on the smallest wire wreath so remember the bigger the wreath frame, the more ribbon you will need. An easier way to do this is to use an embroidery hoop and tie the ribbon around it. It comes out beautiful, but it’s less tying and less ribbon. I will have to do a post on embroidery hoop wreaths because they are so cute and easy to make.
Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
I hope your inspired
to create these projects to!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
