Love it: DIY Valentine’s Cards and Decorating Ideas

February 14th is just a few weeks away. Traditionally I don’t decorate my home for this holiday of love, but just might after being inspired by so many DIY ideas {many from fellow bloggers}. Here are some of my favorite DIY Valentine’s projects to help you say, “I love you”.

This romantic heart shaped wreath with fabric roses would look great on almost any front door. Crafty mom, Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots created this festive wreath and has a wonderful tutorial here.

Dressing up a console table with these darling frames reading XOXO is a great way to spread some love this Valentine’s Day. Jennifer at Tatertots and Jello created this marble craft project and shows us how here.

Paper heart garland is an inexpensive and colorful way to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day. Secret Pie Shoppe designed this version and has a great how-to here.

One place to hang Valentine garland would be your fireplace mantel. I love how Beth at The Stories of A to Z decorated her mantel for Valentine’s Day.

I love this sweet origami heart, but haven’t a clue how to make it. Blogger, Sonja at Craft-Werk has a great tutorial on how-to make these little paper hearts. She swears it is easy as pie.

For tea lovers, this is a perfect way to start Valentine’s Day off right. Martha Stewart shows us how here.

This Rosy Stationary by Martha Stewart {again} was made using the end of a head of Treviso radicchio as a stamp. Kill two birds with one stone – eat a fresh leafy green salad and make darling Valentine’s! Here’s the how-to.

Disney’s Family Fun show how to make this darling “Plant One On Me” card. It includes a packet of seeds for a fun project later!

Now, where to put all those darling Valentine’s cards and projects? The talented folks at Paper Source transformed this simple file folder into a fun place to keep those Valentine greetings. Printed on the outside is a recipe for love. aaahhh.

No time for DIY projects? The Doodle Spot sells this darling “Crazy 4 You!” mini mailbox. It is also perfect for all those heartfelt notes.

    Oh, the tea bags are gorgeous! What a great idea and a nice gift (could be adapted for other times of year, no?)
    The branches on the mantle also look great.
