When it comes to Valentine’s Day decor ideas, the options are pretty basic: hearts, flowers, candy, pink, red and white. The elegant mix of the colours is what really separates the tacky from the well done.
Ideas for valentine’s day decorations
Here are 20 Valentine’s Day decoration ideas to get you started!
1. Paper Hearts
Yes, the old construction paper hearts are always fair game. In case you are heart making impaired, as I tend to be, use an old cookie cutter as your pattern. Instead of construction paper, use the foam paper, to cut out a variety of hearts. Use a hole puncher to place a hole the top and tie a ribbon or string through the opening. You now have a collection of hearts, or whatever Valentine’s cookie cutters at your disposal, eager to hang from vases or ceilings or doorknobs.
2. Paper Chains
Valentine’s Day paper chains are always cool. Simply cut construction paper into long strips. Once you have an assortment of strips, start by making one circle by fastening the edges together either with glue or staples. The next piece gets looped through to form the chain, and so on and so on.
3. Valentine’s Pillow Case
Break out the paint and markers it is time to get messy! Have the kids decorate a sheet of paper however they want. Anything is fair game here! Once that paper is dry, it is time for Mom and Dad to step in. Make a scan of that paper and print it out on a t-shirt transfer. Take the transfer and iron it onto a pillow case. Once you have completed the manufacturers specifications of the transfer, the kids have their very own Valentine’s pillow case.
4. Valentines Box
Making a Valentine’s Day box craft is always a fun task. But what about making several different boxes to lay around the house? These little pink or red packages can be decorated from boxes of any shape and size, and the kids will have a ball getting to make a number of easy Valentine’s Day boxes instead of the usual one. Be sure to gather enough paper and ribbons to keep everyone busy, and to keep all the boxes different.
5. Valentine’s Sign
Purchase a foam display board, and the world can be yours. Take the time to decorate the board with photos, and even a small collage or two. Have the kids put their special touches on the board too. One of the best parts of this type of cheap Valentine’s decoration is it can be saved from year to year. As the collection grows so will the memories you have of making them, it can even transform into a tradition.
