7 DIY Mom Valentine Decorations



Valentine Wreath

Need: (got all decorations from Dollar Tree)
- Foam ring
- Heart picks
- Red Garland
- Hot glue gun


Wrap the garland around the ring... hot gluing it down till the ring is completely covered. Next break the sticks off the hearts and hot glue them on the ring. I did lay mine out first before hot gluing to see what they would look like. Then I attached a ribbon to be able to hang it.

Valentine Ring Garland

Need:
- Sheets of paper (red, pink, white, or patterned)
- Glue stick
Cut sheet of paper in half. Then cut strips 2 inches wide. Glue ends together


.......................................................................................................................

Love Glass Block

Need:

- Glass block (You can get them at your home store. You can even buy ones with pre-made holes in them for your lights)
- Vellum paper
- Mod podge (you can get next to glue in craft stores)
- LOVE stickers
- Ribbon
- Lights

Attach vellum to glass block with Mod Podge (spread evenly on back of vellum w/ paint brush or foam brush). Attach the LOVE stickers on the vellum. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the block and tie a bow at top. Fill block with lights and enjoy!

Heart Garland

Need:
- Colored sheets of card stock
- Glue stick
- Pencil or pen
- Glue dots or double sticky tape
- Fishing line and needle (optional)

Cut strips of paper. You can even glue two strips together to make it a bigger heart. Fold strips in half. Taking one end of the strip, take a pencil and roll the paper inwards till you are about 1 inch from the fold. Gently pull out the pencil. Repeat other side. Now you can glue the middles together with dots or double sticky tape.


You can glue them together to make a garland or take a need and fishing line and start from bottom of heart and push needle through bottom, then in between heart to top. Add as many hearts as you like. The double sticky tape or glue dots will hold the hearts in place. Then you can hang the garland from the mantle or the dangling garland from your chandelier.

Lacy Heart Garland

Need:

- Paper lace hearts (they have them at the Dollar Tree or Craft stores
- Card stock
- Thin ribbon
- Hole puncher
- Double stick tape

Cut out hearts from card stock a little smaller then the paper lace hearts. Using double sticky tape, tape them together. After all hearts are done hole punch at each end of heart. Then weave ribbon in it (leave enough at ends so you can hang). Hang this on your mantle, kitchen window, child's bed, etc...

.........................................................................................................

Love Letters

Need:
- Wood LOVE letters
- Red craft paint
- Ribbon (same width as letters)
- Glue


Paint the letters. Glue the ribbon around the letters (sides, tops, etc). Then place on dining table, mantle, etc..


.......................................................................................................

Felty Heart

Need:
- 3/4 yard red felt (cut into 3 inch circles)
- Straight pins
- Foam heart shaped

Fold the circle in half then half again. Attached it to the foam heart with the straight pins until the whole heart is covered and you don't see any of the white heart foam. Attach a ribbon if you would like to hang it.
