Valentine's Day Fun

Now that the holidays are over, it is time to start decorating in my house for the next holiday,  Valentine's Day. This is not a holiday we make a big deal about in our house but it is fun for the kids to decorate and receive a little treat. 

Sure, buying store bought decorations is always an option. But, giving my kids something to keep them busy on a cold weather weekend is equally appealing.

I have rounded up some adorable Valentine's Day decorations to get you in the spirit. I intend to try out a few myself. Click on the links for tutorials for all these great projects.

Inexpensive frames, scrapbook paper, small candies, and a glue gun are all it takes to make some cute decorations for your table or mantle.

Send the kids out to round up some branches, glue on cut out paper hearts and display them in a vase or jug for a festive and heartwarming display.

This is my favorite. A garage sale globe painted black and decorated with a paint pen. I would leave this out all year!

I love simple decor that creates an impact and this vase filled with candy and flowers fits the bill perfectly.

Need something to keep the kids busy for a while? Get out some scrapbook paper, glue and ribbon. Simply have them roll up the paper into tubes and glue them together.

Looking for something a little easier? Then try this super easy one. Just print with a color printer, punch holes and string together for an adorable and festive banner.
