DIY Valentines Day Decor

DSC_0244

Let me start by saying that I am not one to decorate for valentines day. I love valentines day,
don’t get me wrong. I love getting spoiled by my husband and celebrating our love, but I just
do not usually decorate our home for that holiday.  But, I really wanted to participate in
this weeks linky party {The last one of the Dog Days of Winter Series!} which is the “Love It”
challenge.  This challenge is all about valentines day. Whether it’s food, decor, crafts, DIY
projects, anything to do with the day of love! So, what I did was created a little vignette in our
home for valentines day & I actually enjoyed it! Who knows I may decorate for valentines day
from now on. I simply used things I already had in my home & a few things I picked up
for less than five dollars at the craft store. I’m a little out of my comfort zone on this one,
but I threw something together on a whim & this is what happened.

I did a few DIY projects for this vignette that were super easy!

PicMonkey Collage

For the wooden sign I simply glued wood planks together and stained them. I took a wooden heart
from Michaels {$1.00} painted it white & glued it to the wooden planks. Easy & cheap! For the heart
banner I took cardboard heart boxes {also from Michaels 6 for like $2.00} And hot glued the tops
of the boxes to twine and hung across the mirror with tape. I took the bottoms of the boxes and
hot glued them together for the heart statue. As far as the chalkboard sign I free handed that
{if you couldn’t tell ;)} & simply set it inside the wreath that is hung from the window pane
{from target} The books that the window is setting on are books that I painted and distressed.

Thanks again for leaving such a sweet comment! xx Liz Marie

  2. So cute and I love that it isn’t all pink and white and in yo’face! I don’t know if I’ve seen Valentine’s decorations done in neutrals before and this is perfect. I would love to do this in our house!

    • I agree Jenn! I’m not a pink kind of girl.. neutrals are my thing with pops of color of course :) Thank you for your sweet comment! I hope you get to decorate a little for valentines day in neutrals too!! xx

  3. This is so pretty Liz! I love that you kept it neutral and yet it’s still so festive. Beautiful job. The chalkboard sign is my favorite, oh and the stained wood with the white heart :)

    • Thank you Taryn!! Thank you thank you thank you! I quickly put this together and I’m actually kind of enjoying the valentines day decor when I walk by it.. it makes me happy :)

  4. What a beautiful little vignette!! You did a great job throwing this together Liz! I also like the fact that you kept things neutral. Love that stained pallet with the heart on it! So cute!

  5. Pretty, and simple! Just the way I like it! :) I think I’ll use your ideas as inspiration. My little mantel could use some sprucing up! Lovely.

    • Thank you Celeste! I’m the same as you.. keep it simple and eclectic :) I hope you get inspired for your mantel.. I wish we had a mantel in this home, so I just make my vignettes on my little dressers haha.. it’s the next best thing!

  6. Just voted!! Love your blog! Where is this vignette in your home? Love it! Such a classy take on Valentine’s Day decor! I typically don’t decorate for it either but I may need to try some of these ideas out in our house!

    • Hey Katie! This little vignette is actually in our living room/entry area.. we have a very open concept home so it’s in that general area. I really don’t decorate for any holiday, but I’m glad I tried it.. it was fun and I may do it from now on in different ways. I’m glad you liked these and were inspired that makes me so happy!!! xx

  8. Love this Liz!! The stained wood with the heart board is my favorite. So simple, yet super cute! Congrats on the Homie nomination, I already voted for your blog on AT!

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH SARAH! You are awesome! & thank you so much for leaving a such a sweet comment, you seriously made my day!! Thanks again for all the support!! xx

  9. This is so pretty and charming, Liz! I don’t decorate much for Valentine’s Day either, and also did a simple vignette on my faux mantel. Even though I love neutrals, I am totally falling in love with the blue you have on the chest and am totally going to be using it more in spring this year. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos-so much lovely inspiration here!

  10. What a great little vignette, so adorable but without bubble gum pink! The natural materials look great against the aqua cabinet, I think I’m in love! Following you now on Hellocotton :)

  11. Wow that is incredible work Liz. I wish I had even a small percentage of the creativity it takes to come up with amazing projects like this. Well done!

  12. very elegant!!

  13. I love everything about this vignette. At first I thought the plank sign was my favorite but, looking more, I can’t tell what I like best! And I love the aqua dresser too! :)

  14. I love the feel of this vignette – it is subtle, pretty and romantic. It will art of my Valentines Day round up tomorrow!
