14 Valentine's Day Decorations Your Whole Family Will Heart
Holiday colors like red, pink and white are basically an invitation to try out a few festive DIYs. Whether your intent is to add a touch of Cupid to every room, or gather a few key pieces for a Valentine's Day dinner, these homemade ideas won't disappoint.
HANGING OMBRÈ DRIFTWOOD
Keep this heart-shaped wall hanging, in blush ombré, up year-round for a touch of femininity. Blogger Rachel used stray branches from the backyard, four shades of paint and string to pull this project together.
On this mantel, cheery pink daisies pop against leaning chalkboards covered in the sweetest of Valentine's Day messages.
DAINTY DOILY GARLAND
This handmade doily garland adds a touch of vintage flair to a dresser, mantel or doorway.
FLOWER WALL HANGING
A "photobooth" at this year's Valentine's Day party is a must.
Throwing a Galentine's Day party instead? These watercolor place cards, in the sweetest of seasonal colors, pop against a plated arrangement of blooms.
OMBRÈ ROSE BOX
Juxtaposed against a black-and-white striped runner, burgundy roses fade first to blush and then to cream, giving this floral centerpiece movement and tons of drama.
HEART ART CANVASES
Get the kids involved with this wall art DIY. Trace hearts onto cream canvas and then ask your little ones to get creative. Hang their finished work in a visible spot when they're dry — and be reminded of the love you have for your family whenever you glance over.
Multi-toned roses arranged in waffle cones make for the most delicious floral arrangement we've ever seen.
DRAMATIC HEART HANGING
Chicken wire, wood poles, red paper napkins and a nail gun are the only tools needed for this eye-grabbing 3D heart hanging.
Bring in wintry touches when designing your Valentine's Day mantel. A pine wreath, punctuated by bold LOVE lettering, whispers of holidays past.
VALENTINE'S DAY LIPS PIÑATA
This fun project might go to pieces once the kids start swinging, but until then, display this funky lip piñata box for all to see.
You might feel a bit silly making this V-Day print, but we promise, it will be more than worth it. Apply lipstick — start with lighter shades before moving on to bolder pinks and reds — pucker up and give a piece of sturdy white paper a smooch (or 30!).
TISSUE ROSE WREATH
Tissue paper, rolled up to mimic roses, makes for a cheery floral door decoration that will last much longer than the real thing.
A love potion book cover turns your child's favorite nighttime read into a magical piece of Valentine's Day decor that, like the holiday, is all about the love.
