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. So far these past two seasons I have made a pom pom basket, cherry blossom branches, pink painted fabric pillow, valentine heart pillow,   clay hearts, hand stitched hearts, a succulent heart wreath, silver metallic clay hearts, and a Valentine wooden flower crate (covered in paper napkins). 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.

Today I am sharing a simple Valentine Heart garland that I made out of scrapbook paper. I love how it looks on my vintage white windows. And it was incredibly easy (as in no cutting!) because I used a hole punch.

I made an after-dinner/dessert Valentine’s Day Charcuterie board with lots of homemade goodies. Today you will find recipes for Pink Peppermint Swirl Marshmallows, Homemade Hot Chocolate, and Royal Icing Sugar Cookies. Yum.

Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The most special way for us to celebrate is to enjoy a special Valentine’s Day dinner at home.

Valentine's Day dinner

Valentine’s Day dinner has always been different in our home. Our oldest son Andrew was born on Valentine’s Day so for his first eighteen years, we celebrated his birthday (which of course took precedence!). When he went off to college we weren’t used to going out to dinner nor did we like the hassle and crowds. So we usually have dinner at home. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
