Valentine’s Day Home Tour
Even though I have never really been too into Valentine’s Day, it is always nice to decorate and have a little fun with it. When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of handmade valentines, heart shaped confetti, and sweet little notes. I have really enjoyed making some of my own little decorations for the house, some of which cost me nothing. I thought I would put up a fun little house tour so that you can see a few of the details. I was lucky to have my trusty little helper, Button, along for the ride!
I kept our kitchen simple with over the door hearts from the Target One Spot. I seriously don’t know how I ever made it without Target’s cute little bargain section – they have SO many wonderful things! I also add in some simple chalkboard art for every holiday. Chalkboards are such a fun and free way to switch things up!
I also found this cute polka dot paper from the One Spot at Target. I used the roll of paper and twine to make little flowers for my cafe area. I just loved how this little spot turned out!
I also found some cute little paper straws with hearts on them at Target to put in my mix. Paper straws are one of my absolute favorite things to have on hand – I love all of the colors and designs!
I also made some tea light candle holders from some Mason Jars, twine and an old poli sci book I had lying around (my former professors would be proud! 😉 ). This project was completely free because I had all of the materials, and they turned out so adorable. I always love to decorate the ledge in our kitchen, so this project was perfect!
Our dining room got a mini makeover as well. I dug up some candles I purchased in the Christmas sale section from T.J. Maxx. My favorite part about Valentine’s Day is that everything red that goes on sale right after Christmas can be used again just one month later! I paired my candle sticks with some little red votives for a fun festive look.
My bar cart was the first little space I dressed up, but I kept this area neutral. I found the white frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, and used the little paper hearts (leftover from my Mason Jar tea light holders) to create garland. I love this frame so much, and I already have big plans for it when Easter rolls around!
Our mantel is always one of my favorite spots to decorate (please ignore the wires – we are in the middle of conquering that project in the next few weeks). I used some more of my striped candle sticks, and some chalkboard garland from Target. I kept things very simple, but cute in this area.
My hutch is my absolute favorite piece of furniture in our home. I just love how unique it is, and the decorating opportunities are endless. I used quite a bit of mercury glass again in this area, along with another banner from Target. I added in more candle sticks, and my DIY glitter heart sign.
I found a bag of glittery hearts at Hobby Lobby, and put them in my mercury glass holder. I then used a few more red mercury glass votives to throw in a little more color.
I hope you enjoyed my mini Valentine’s Day house tour. Thanks for stopping by! XO
