Whether you’re going for playful or provocative, these DIY Valentine’s Day Decorations will make sure love is in the air February 14th!
Whether you use this as a silly gift or a table centerpiece, it’ll still send a sweet message. Write a love note on fruits filled with juicy puns. For bananas, “I’m bananas for you,” and “Let’s never split.” For apples, “You’re the apple of my eye.” For oranges, “Orange you glad I’m so funny?” Pears – “You’re pear-fect.” You could make a whole fruit basket of punny snacks!

Leave Cupid’s arrows scattered around with this easy and adorable craft! Find some sturdy twigs or branches from the back yard, and break a handful off to be similar sizes. Use hot glue (or some kind of super glue) to secure the felt on the branch. Be sure to put matching felt on both sides. Tie a small bow near the feathers of the arrow. Get really creative and make the point part a heart instead of an arrowhead.

This is the most time consuming of the DIY crafts on this list, but the result is stunning and romantic. First, take a piece of heart shaped Styrofoam and a couple sheets of felt. Cut the felt into a bunch of circles. Fold each circle in half twice, and use a straight pin to push it into the foam backing. Repeat the process over and over, keeping the felt close enough to cover all the Styromoam. When you’re all done, you’ll have a beautiful heart that looks as fluffy as a pillow and as romantic as Cupid himself.

These Valentine’s Day Decorations are great to hand on the door or by the window. There’s many ways to go about Valentine’s themed garland, but we’ve chosen one on the simpler side that is easy to customize. Start by cutting seven strips of construction paper (or felt, or similar material): two long, two medium, two short, and one shortest. Place them in this order: short, medium, long, shortest, long, medium, short. Bend the three pieces on either side to form a heart shape. The piece still sticking out in the middle will hang on a string.

This super easy decoration adds a surprisingly romantic flare to any candlelit dinner. All you have to do is cut a stencil of a heart shape and drape it around a vase or mason jar. The material can be felt, construction paper, even tissue paper – as long as its sturdy enough to stay stiff and not simply drape over the vase.
