Happy Valentine's Day!

I love decorating my house for holidays. It is so much fun and gets everyone more excited about the festivities when there is pretty decor all around you! Christmas, Thanksgiving (fall), and Halloween are the big 3 that are the easiest to decorate for because I feel like you can decorate your whole house for those holidays-(I will dedicate another post to my DIY Christmas decor bc I went a little nuts this past Christmas). As for Valentine's Day, and February being a shorter month (that really has nothing to do with it) I decided that I can't decorate my whole house for this day. However, I did give it a whole shelf all to it's lovey dovey self.

---Sorry for the lame pics. I really should consider a photography class before I try and continue this blog. I'm a newbie.

I bought the Valentine blocks at Target from the dollar bin section. They were $2.50 and change to make these 4 words. So much fun and super cheap!

I bought the I heart U milk jugs from Target for $2, I already had the red candle holder, the heart sticks are from dollar tree for $1 and the glass LOVE holder for $1 at dollar tree.

This was one of my favs! I actually got the idea from another blog that was posted on Thrifty Decor Chic.
If you have an old scrabble game just hanging out in the closet, use the old scrabble pieces for fun art projects! You can also buy scrabble tiles on Etsy and Amazon for really cheap. I just picked out the tiles I wanted to use and spray painted one of the wooden tile holders red. Easy Cheesy.

I bought the frame from dollar tree for $1, I already had the fabric squares (same ones I used to make the patch work lamp in my previous post), and I bought the sparkly, red LOVE letters from Target dollar bin for $1! All I did was arrange the fabric in the frame how I liked it and I super glued the LOVE to the glass. Cute!

Glass LOVE holder again. Dollar Tree is where it's at.

Such a fun, thrifty, festive way to decorate for Valentine's Day. It only cost me $11 to decorate this shelf! Boo Yaa! Love it with all my Valentine's Day heart. Hit up dollar tree and get your creative energy flowing for CHEAPOLA.
