Valentine’s Day Decorations – Make a Heart Garland

I just might be obsessed with making Valentine’s Day decorations. Today I am sharing a simple heart garland. It’s easy to make, simple but elegant.

Valentine's day decorations


Even though I have made a lot of Valentine Day decorations and crafts this year, I still like the simple decor.

I like subtle decor that offers a slight hint of the holiday. I like a light touch of holiday decor and today’s craft is exactly that.

So I made this chenille flower pillow and I love it.

Today for the first Saturday Home Series, I am teaming up with three other bloggers to share our ideas about how we are adding comfort to our homes.
