Inexpensive Valentines Day Decorations

Hello friends! Thought I’d share a little bit of inexpensive Valentines Day decorating inspiration with you all.

I found the pink wagon at the thrift store for $1.50. It will be a toy again after Feb. 14th. But for now it holds pink and red stuff. If you haven’t been to Dollar Tree and bought some of their little sparkly hearts, you really should. They are so cute and can be used a thousand different ways. And there are 7 or 9 in each $1 package.

The red and white berries in my apothecary jar were Christmas garlands from Michaels… at 90% off, each strand was like 50 cents. Yee haw!

I made another table runner kind of like THIS Christmas one. Imagine that the apothecary jar is full of candy hearts...I’ll get it filled eventually. Got that jar for $2 at the thrift store, by the way.
Also check your local thrift stores for holiday decor.

Sometimes an ugly decoration...

... just needs a new coat of paint, glitter and a bow.

Happy Valentine's Day!
