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).
- Valentine’s Day Sign from Target – $2.00
- Heart shaped pom-pom wreath from Fynes Designs – DIY
- “Be Mine” Printable from Salt and Cove – $5.00
- Paper Heart Chandelier from Inspired to Share – DIY
- You, Me and Coffee mug from Target – $4.99
