I love sharing all kinds of things
on this blog, but holiday
decorations will always have my heart!
It's so fun to celebrate the little 
things in life!


valentines kitchen, valentines mantel


The best part of holiday decorating for me
is creatively using items that I already have 
or that are very inexpensive!  


glass centerpiece, paper hearts, bean jar filler


For the centerpiece on my dining room table
(see a tutorial for how I refinished it here)
I grabbed a glass jar, cut hearts from dictionary paper,
and tied some ribbon around it.
I filled the jar with white beans
and a white candle.  


valentines centerpiece, candles


I sat the glass candle jar on a vintage red shutter.

Tip- I always put felt pads on the bottom of 
items going on my table. 

I also grabbed some metal 
candle holders from my stash.


love banner, heart banner, love sign, wooden candle holders, fairy lights


For my mantel, 
I bought the LOVE banner (this year) 
and the ticking banner (last year, I think) 
from Target dollar spot.


string, heart punches from paper, crafter's tape


For the paper heart banner,
I punched hearts from dictionary paper.
Then glued* them with double stick tape on twine.



wooden sign, painted wooden sign, craft paint, painters tape


I made the Love sign
with a piece of wood.
It's actually a wooden sign that 
I turned to the back side.
I taped a rectangle with painters tape*
 and painted it with black acrylic paint.


love sign, mantel, valentines day


Then I used a paint pen to write Love 
and draw hearts.


remote controlled lights, candle sticks, mantel,  valentines decor


I added some fairy lights*.  
I love these lights so very much!
And that they are controlled by a remote...
LOVE!




I added my favorite spindle candlesticks too.




On the other side of the room 
is my farmhouse shelving unit.


gumball machine, wooden sign, vintage tool box, vintage toys, hearts


I used mostly all items I had on hand here as well.


tool box, candy jar, pop bottle, flag


I hung my wooden name sign
above the shelves.

I put some candy and glitter hearts in jars,
put the jars in an old tool box
some Valentine flags in a soda bottle.


toy truck, gumball machine, hearts, love sing


I put my vintage gumball machine 
(still full of Christmas candy- oops)
along with a wire basket filled with hearts, love sign
and a toy truck that was
my husband's when he was small.


valentine's day, lightbox, glitter heart


I get a lot of holiday bang for my buck
when using my light box*.


candy jars, valentine's day, flags, hearts, wooden sign, candy
