Valentines Day Decorations

From sparkling hearts to little Valentine’s day cards, it’s a festive time of year to decorate your home as love fills the air. Often, it’s easy to incorporate Valentine’s day decorations into your already existing décor.

“There are many options for decor enthusiasts wanting to bring the sweetness of Valentine's Day into their home,” Ashley Dudich, home blogger and shop owner of All The Design, said. “Wall decor, themed dishes, table runners, candles and wreaths are a few of the most commonly used decor accents for this season. A doormat, throw pillows and candy dishes are other favorites readily available in stores and online shopping sites.”

The benefit of decorating for Valentine’s day is most small and handmade items take center stage, this décor doesn’t have to be over the top. Dudich has provided ImproveNet with a few of the photos you see on this page, for how she's incorporating Valentine's themed decor in her home. Trees 

“Valentine's Day is such a sweet holiday, and when decorating for this time of the year, I like to keep it light and simple,” Dudich said. “Adding just a few items around the house gives a sense of warmth and makes it easy to transition to the next season. A little pink heart dish set on a coffee table, a few strands of whimsical garland, and a little 2-foot tree in a galvanized bucket with a thin strand of lights and metal heart ornaments are a few of my go-to's. Re-purposing holiday decor, such as a red berry wreath or pink and red bottle brush trees, is a great way to use what you may already have.”

Let’s start with a few ideas that you can DIY for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day DIY Décor

For those cold weekends inside, you can get the family together and start creating DIY Valentine’s Day decorations. A quick trip to your local craft store to pick up a few items will be all it takes to get started making pieces you can cherish for years to come.

“There are so many decor items you can make for Valentine's Day, and in many cases, these are often my favorites to use year after year,” Dudich said. “Garlands are an excellent DIY project for Valentine's Day, and stringing pom-poms or tulle together can create a really sweet and inexpensive pop of fun. Putting festive pom-poms and sequins in clear ornaments to fill a vase or hang on a sweet little tree is a great project for kids of all ages. For those with an artistic hand or a die cut machine, consider making a painted pallet sign with a fun "heart" or "love" theme.”

Valentine’s Day Table Decorations

Like any holiday, your dining table can take center stage. For Valentine’s Day, I always love when flowers are the focal point. Forty-three million US households are predicted to purchase flowers for Valentine’s day, and they will likely be red roses, according to 1-800 Flowers. It’s the perfect time for a beautiful floral centerpiece!

If you don’t know where to start, find your favorite vase and arrange your flowers accordingly so that each bloom is visible. Lace is also traditionally seen around this time of year in décor, so place a piece under the vase, and now you have yourself a simple, yet eye-catching, DIY table centerpiece.

Valentines Day Door Decorations

Welcome in guests with a beautiful Valentine’s Day wreath! Make it once and use year after year. Burlap is one of my favorite wreath materials to use at any time of the year. It gives décor a rustic look, yet makes any color pop against it. So, I was thrilled to find this DIY Valentine’s Day Burlap Wreath Tutorial from Décor By The Seashore. Getting creative with this tutorial is easy to do with so many options!

Valentine’s Day Lawn Decorations

In some parts of the country, it still may look like Christmas time outside. However, regardless of climate, you can always bring a little bit of love to your front lawn. One of the most common Valentine’s Day lawn decorations is a garden flag. However, if you’re looking to get really festive, I suggest hanging some red or pink string lights in trees and bushes, or some heart ornaments to trees. It will be a welcome sight now that all the Christmas lights have been taken down.


Valentine’s Day is a great time to decorate your home a bit more seasonally, without going over the top or breaking the bank. Try a few of these ideas to bring a little sparkle into your home.
