Valentine's Decor

Every year I want to decorate for Valentine's Day, but always find I hardly have anything to decorate with and don't want to spend a lot of money.  This year I was determined to do do something in our dining room on the cheap, I went shopping at Dollar Tree, $1 spot at Target, and things around my home creating this below for the less than $12! 

Here's a view of the whole dresser.  Made apothecary jars from DT candle stick holders and cylinder vases.  Subway art was a free printable from eighteen 25, found here. 

The milk jugs were found in the Target $1 spot.  Heart pics from dollar tree, they are soft and fuzzy.

The apothecary jars are filled with some red satin, glitter hearts, strand of white beads and some heart picks.


Close up of the book the Hubs book folded and some glittery love below.


Close-up of the love bunting I made out of burlap.  Frame was an old one that was brass, picked up for FREE, painted it a glossy black.  

I plan to link up to these parties and Beth's Linky party, here.

SUPER impressed - looks awesome!!! I'd love to do something like that, but I am oh so not crafty at all - wish you lived closer ;)

Well done - cute and done on the cheap. I'm the same as I don't have much for Valentine's day but don't want to spend much. I'll have to go and visit the dollar store and see what I can find.

What a super cute set up, I love shopping at Dollar Tree for cute holiday decor. Target's dollar section is a must, I have a love/hate relationship with them. Thanks for sharing, visting from Somewhat Simple.

Did you gorilla glue the hurricanes with candle holders? I wanted to do that, but didn't. :(

But loving your ideas and your thrifty ways!

Can't wait to share my Valentine decor next week!
