So, without further ado, here are a few simple DIY Valentine’s Day decoration ideas:


Valentine’s Day wreaths hanging on your door are a great inspiration and reminder of the season of love! There are different types of wreaths you can use to give your humble abode the V‑Day feel. You can go for the heart-shaped wreaths and create ones like the tulip heart wreath, paper heart wreath, pom pom heart wreath, or ruffled heart wreath. There are other Valentine themed wreaths like the cranberry wreath, paper rosette wreath, cupcake liner wreath, and chevron wreath.

Gift Cards

Nothing says “I love you” like a gift card your loved one can keep forever. The impact is greater when the gift card is hand-made. Making one yourself is a good way to make the recipient feel loved – a gift you make has more value than one you buy – so break out your paper, glue, markers, and glitter, and make a memorable gift card. You can get your family to make cards for each other and place them around your home.

Upholstered Banner

Upholstery is one of the main go-tos for decorators. Make an upholstered banner that spells out the word “love” with a little heart on the side or a message that resonates with the season of love. What’s more, you can repurpose the letters in your banner for other occasions.

Heart Shaped Dream Catcher

The dream catcher is a legend that traces its origin to the Ojibwe native American tribe. The traditional belief behind this legend is that a dream catcher only allows good dreams to pass through its center which then slides down its feathers to the sleepers. Today, dreamcatchers are used decoratively. With Valentine’s Day coming, use this ancient legendary object to create a special valentine’s day decoration for your home. All you need do is give it a valentine theme. You can make it in the shape of a heart to signify the celebration of love and then use red coloured parts such as the floral wire or beads to put you in the mood for Valentine’s Day.

Felt Hearts

Get your children involved in making your beautiful felt heart decorations. With your felt heart craft, you can decorate your house for Valentine’s Day, putting your home in the celebration mode. Get your red felt, wadding/ cotton stuffing, ribbon for hanging it, PVA glue, embroidery thread, and needle. To complete the job, get your jewels, sequins and glitter glue to decorate it, and you’re good to go.

Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

Every holiday has its accompanying snack or drink that gives it that special feel; for Valentine, we have cupcakes. You can make chocolate sweetheart cupcakes, marshmallow-stuffed cakes, red velvet cupcakes, etc. They add to the ambiance and make sure your family’s stomachs feel the love that’s going around.


Nothing says celebration like confetti, and nothing celebrates the season like Valentine themed confetti. So, get your tracing paper sheets, red card stock, pink card stock, plain card stock, confetti, skewers, and scissors, and get to work. You can make heart shaped confetti or infuse the colors of the season into your creation.

Gift Box with Flowers

Gift boxes come with a thrill and curiosity over what could be inside it. Boxes make everything better and every gift is more special with the element of surprise boxes give. To make the box even better, add some lovely flowers and use a red box to give it the Valentine feel.

Hanging Hearts

What’s the best way to let everyone know you’re Valentine crazed? Hang some hearts on your door! Push the love in their faces right from your porch. You can turn your entry way into a suspended forest but with hearts instead of trees. Get your tools ready and hang up some hearts.
