The window for decorating for Valentine’s Day is already quite small and it might have snuck up on you this year! However, adding a bit of Valentine’s Day charm to your home can be done quickly and easily. One of the greatest parts of celebrating Valentine’s Day is being surrounded by cute decorations and signs of love. Utilize these tips to have your home decorated like a pro, cheaply and with little effort!

Dollar Store

Don’t sleep on the dollar store. There can be many good deals found within your local DollarTrees and Dollar Generals. Many of these stores have seasonal areas where you can find a lot of what you need. Even if you need to venture outside of the seasonal section, you can still find much to offer when it comes to decor in hues of pink and red. For decor options, consider balloons, confetti, table decor, magnets, and heart-printed items. Don’t forget the practical stuff, like plates and tablecloths!

Printables and Gift Bags

There are plenty of free printables available online. And the best part? All you need is a printer! Simply print out the designs you like and hang them up around your home. Similarly, there are also many different projects you can print as well, including banners. Consider framing the printables using frames you already have around the house. You can also bust open your closet and see if  you have any gift bags laying around from Valentine’s Day last year. Rip the front of the bag off (the part with the design), take the glass and backing out of the frame you want to use, and staple the design onto the back of the frame. Then, just hang it up on the wall. This is a super easy way to spruce up your home for Valentine’s Day!

Chalkboards and Letter Boards

If you already have a chalkboard or letter board, then you can put it to good use for Valentine’s Day. Similarly, this idea is also great if you have a memo board of any kind. Utilize Google to search up some fun Valentine’s Day-related designs to create on your board. This could be in the form of a fun picture or a cute saying. To make it more aesthetically pleasing, consider using some calligraphy to add flair. If you are not artistically inclined, there’s no worries! You can use a stencil or follow a guide on Google.

Paper Banners

Need some last minute Valentine’s Day decor? Not a problem. All you need for this decoration is paper of any kind. You can use notebook paper, cardstock, printer paper, or scrapbooking paper. Simply cut out some hearts and hot glue them to a string or twine. Similarly, you can also weave the hearts onto the string. Then, hang them up wherever you desire. They often look best over a doorway and along the front of a table or bookcase. You can also utilize leftover scraps of paper to cut or punch out hearts to use for table confetti!

Table Decor

You may be thinking that you need to go all out for Valentine’s Day decor, but keep in mind that sometimes less is more. If you are wanting to add some Valentine’s Day flair to your tables, consider adding in some simple decor. Any decor that is pink, red, or cute could work for this holiday! If you have a tiered tray, set that up as your centerpiece. Then, begin stacking your decorations from largest on the bottom to smallest on the top. If you don’t have a tray for the centerpiece, you could also opt for some pink or red flowers in a pretty vase!
