The other day as I walked by the dining room the thought came to mind how easy it is to go from a winter look to a Valentine’s look. Off to Dollar Tree for a frugal way to update for Valentine’s Day.
I bought a package of seven hearts on sticks. My big decision was pink or red. I settled on the red. And not only is this frugal but so fast and easy. You remember the glitter project I did with the glass jars? Well, I kept the table setting the same except to put the hearts in all 3 vases. Instant Valentine’s Day décor!
But of course, I couldn’t stop there. I have an open floor plan so the Christmas Wreath I made is visible to the dining room and great room. Back to the Dollar Tree to see what I could find. I ended up buying two Heart Bouquets. I looked for red ribbon so the Merry Christmas bow could be disguised. Then I remembered I had some from the Santa Napkin Rings. A perfect way to use what I have.
I clipped the red hearts from one of the bouquets and threaded each one through the doily. Two on one side and three on the other. Then I made a bow. Now some of you can make pretty bows. I just tied a bow and then cut the ends using the rotary cutter and mat. I didn’t want to glue it because I like the idea of using it for a Christmas wreath. Since the ribbon is so wide I just used straight pins and pinned it to the ribbon underneath.
Now I can be frugal. I had an extra Heart bouquet I stuck it in the green faux plant that is on the table in the entryway. I got out the “Love Wood Blocks” I made and put them by the planter. They will probably move to the mantel. The Wood Block Candleholder is on the coffee table.
The house is dressed for Valentine’s Day and I only spent $3.00. Plus I got my walk in since both trips I walked to Dollar Tree. Now that is a win all the way around for a frugal way to update for Valentine’s Day. And the house looks so pretty and festive, don’t you agree?
