Valentine’s Day Decor Transition
As the holiday season comes to an end, many people find themselves feeling a bit down as they take down their Christmas decorations. However, there are ways to add some color and cheer to your home during this post-holiday decor slump. Whitney from Whiskey and Whit has some quick and easy DIY ideas for Valentine’s Day decor that are sure to brighten up any home.
One fun and simple DIY idea is to use silicone candy molds to create candy-like decor. Using a glue gun, one can fill up the openings in the mold and let it cool completely before popping it out and painting it in colors that resemble conversation hearts. Adding cute sayings with a red Sharpie gives it that personal touch. These can be displayed on a tear tray or in a vignette to add a pop of color to any room.
Another great DIY idea involves using fabric gift bags and heat transfer vinyl to create personalized Valentine’s Day gift bags. With a full pack of free files and printables available on Whitney’s blog, one can easily measure and cut out designs like “Gallentine Gang”, “This Love is in the Air”, and “XO XO”. Using a mini press, one can apply the heat transfer vinyl and create a cute and festive bag for gifting.
For those looking to add some quick and easy decor to their home, Whitney suggests using cardboard to create a Valentine’s Day garland. By tracing and cutting out heart shapes and rectangles, one can create a fun and festive garland that can be strung up using Dollar Tree jute twine. Adding some traditional red stickers from the Dollar Tree completes the look.
Finally, for a unique take on the traditional book stack decor, Whitney suggests using craft paper and fabric to cover books in different sizes. Adding a decal that says “The Five Love Languages” to the spine of the craft paper-covered book gives it a personal touch. This stack can be displayed with a picture or other decor items to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
These quick and easy DIY ideas are perfect for adding some Valentine’s Day cheer to any home without breaking the bank.
DIY Candy Heart Decorations
Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to add a pop of color to your home decor after taking down the Christmas decorations. Whitney from Whiskey and Whit shares some quick and easy DIY ideas for Valentine’s Day decorations that won’t break the bank.
One fun and easy DIY project is making candy heart decorations using silicone candy molds. Whitney uses a glue gun to fill the mold’s openings and lets it cool completely before popping it out like an ice cube. She then uses an X-Acto Knife to get rid of any excess glue and paints the hearts with a variety of conversation heart colors. After the paint dries, she uses a red Sharpie to write different sayings on the hearts, such as “hug me” and “miss you.” These candy heart decorations can be displayed on a tray or in a cup to add a festive touch to any room.
Another DIY project Whitney shares is creating Valentine’s Day gift bags using fabric gift bags and heat transfer vinyl. She uses a mini press to apply the vinyl and adds sayings like “Gallentine Gang” and “This Love is in the Air” to the bags. These bags make great gifts for friends, teachers, or anyone you appreciate.
Whitney also shares a quick and easy cardboard garland DIY using cardboard cutouts of hearts and rectangles. She uses a white paint marker to add designs to the cutouts and adds traditional red Valentine’s Day stickers from the Dollar Tree. The cutouts are strung together with twine to create a festive garland that can be hung anywhere in the home.
For a fun take on the traditional book stack decor, Whitney uses craft paper and fabric to cover different sized books. She adds a decal to the spine of one of the books that reads “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, a book she recommends for learning about yourself and your relationships. This stack of books can be displayed with other Valentine’s Day decor or used as bookends.
Finally, Whitney shares a DIY project for creating Valentine’s Day branches using felt stickers and cut branches from a tree. She adds the stickers to the ends of the branches to create a playful and festive decoration. These branches can be displayed in a vase or added to a floral arrangement for a unique touch.
Customized Fabric Gift Bags
In the video, Whitney shares a DIY project to create customized fabric gift bags for Valentine’s Day. She suggests using Dollar Tree fabric gift bags and heat transfer vinyl to add designs to the bags. Whitney provides free files and printables for this project on her blog. She suggests measuring the bag to determine the appropriate size for the design. Whitney uses her mini press on the medium setting to apply the heat transfer vinyl. She recommends checking if the vinyl requires a hot or cold peel and following the instructions accordingly. Whitney suggests adding a gift card or small gift to the bag to create a festive and personalized gift for friends, teachers, or secretaries.
Valentine’s Day Cardboard Garland
Whitney from Whiskey and Whit has shared a fun and easy DIY project to add some Valentine’s Day decor to your home. This project uses cardboard, which is a free and eco-friendly material.
To make the Valentine’s Day cardboard garland, start by tracing a heart shape onto the cardboard using a store-bought heart as a guide. Then, cut out the heart shape and trace the outside using a white paint marker with an envelope motif.
Next, add some traditional red for Valentine’s Day by using stickers from the Dollar Tree. Punch two holes on either side of the heart and string them up using Dollar Tree jute twine.
Whitney hung the garland up with two felt garlands, one pink and white Easter garland and one red Christmas garland, to make the front entryway of her house super festive and welcoming without spending a lot of money or time.
This DIY project is a great way to add some Valentine’s Day decor to your home without breaking the bank.
