Frugal Valentine’s Day Decorations

five dollar valentine's day decor, mug, printable, wreath, garland, sign

It’s officially February!!  The month of LOVE.

I was never a huge fan of Valentine’s Day.  However, now that I’m older, married, and better understand the need to show people LOVE I’m climbing on board the Valentine’s Day festivities.  I want to raise Gemma to celebrate loving others!

To see how I’m challenging myself to better love others check out my last post.

Our Home Decorations

Being an inspiring homemaker, I wanted our home to reflect this season.  I scoured Pinterest and other places looking for DIY projects and other cheap decorations.  Dallas and I are on a strict budget and can’t afford to spend very much in the area of decorations… technically our budget for home decor is $0.  Currently the only two Valentine’s Day decorations in our house are a $3 banner from Target and an old mug that Dallas got from who-knows-where before we were even married… Technically, it might have been his mom’s.

It’s not very much.  For now, however, it’s a start!


Frugal Valentine’s Day Decorations

Because of our lack of Valentine’s Day decor I decided to put together a little wish list for myself.  It’s five decorations for under $5 (including two DIY projects that I’m estimating would cost me $5).
