I love decorating my house for the various seasons and holidays throughout the year. There is Thanksgiving and Christmas of course. Everyone decorates for those. But, I’ve always enjoyed putting up decorations all year long – spring, summer, the Fourth of July, fall (which is probably my favorite), Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, winter, and now we are at Valentine’s Day.
Having kids makes this all the more fun because they enjoy it just as much as I do. And we’ve come up with some pretty fun ideas together along way. Scroll down to see some of our Valentine’s decorations this year. You can come up with some pretty cheap and easy ideas with some simple items from the dollar store that you can reuse year after year.
Valentine’s wreath on our door made from a scarf from the .99 Cent store wrapped on a round metal frame (it’s actually a frame for advent candles) picked up from the curb.
A mini-Christmas tree decorated with paper hearts cut from a gift bag.
Valentine’s garland made with red Christmas lights wrapped around one of my babywearing wraps.
Sticky hearts from the .99 Cent store in the window – It’s Valentine’s Day NYC!
Meet Rosie. She’s our scarecrow that we got on clearance two years ago. She sits in the hall outside our door. We decided that we liked her so much that now we keep her up all year long and dress her up for each season and holiday (watch for more pictures of her in the future). See – even she has a bag of Valentine’s for you.
Felt hearts hanging in the plant.
Isn’t Rosie cute. She’s a good friend.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
