Valentine’s Day Garland

I had so much fun with this Valentine’s Day garland. I have to tell you something. As my kids got older I pulled back on Valentine’s Day decor. I decorated for January and February and stayed in a winter mood until Spring. But this garland was a fun reason to add a little Valentine’s Day back into my home.



I love simple and since I already had my January decor I kept it uncomplicated.


A few years ago I purchased these concrete-shaped hearts. I purchased three for each of my three children. And, odd numbers are a good rule of thumb when staging or decorating a home.


I found these cute little hearts at Target in the dollar section. I used a hole punch to make a large enough hole to string the hearts together to create a holiday-themed garland.


These hearts sat on my desk for a week until I told myself not to overthink how to create a Valentine’s Day garland.

This garland took me maybe four minutes and it fits in beautifully with my dreamy, winter hutch. Subtle.

I love to blend winter decor with pink and red in February. It’s like a slow roll into spring.
