Wreaths

I know what you’re thinking. Wreaths for Valentine’s Day? Yes! It is a quick and easy way to decorate the outside of your home. It’s also unique! Most people wouldn’t think about making or buying a wreath for any other holiday besides the holidays. It will make your guests feel welcome even before they step into your home.

Garlands

Valentines Garlands are really easy and affordable to make. They can be put anywhere in your home! Take a day and enjoy it making garlands with a loved one. You’ll need to buy colored paper, string and glue. Then cut hearts, circles, or whatever you like, and paste them on the string. Ta da! That’s it.

There are many ways you can hang them. Try making a bunch with the same length and hanging them by your window like vertical blinds. Another great idea is taking a long garland and hanging around on a chandelier above your dining table to create the look of hearts falling into the center of the table. Maybe you have a display on your mantle and it needs a little something extra? The possibilities are endless.

Pink or Red Accents

If crafts aren’t your thing, adding random pink or red accents all over your home is for you. Remember to keep it simple! These next few tips are for things that you have around your house that can be turned into Valentine’s decor in no time!

Do you have a lot of candles? Replace all of them with red or pink candles. It can get pricey, though. If you don’t want to splurge, and you have white candles, buy a small ribbon that has hearts or a red/pink color, and wrap it around the candles with a bow.

Do you have picture frames? Make some quick heart “photos” to put in the picture frames like the photo above. Just like photos are different, try to make each frame have it’s own character.

Lastly, my favorite Valentine’s Day decorating idea, apothecary jars! They are really a great item to purchase if you want a quick and stress free way to decorate for any holiday! Replace your holiday apothecary fills with heart candies, Valentine colored jawbreakers, or Valentine M&M’s. I even saw someone fill their jar with pink marshmallows!

Don’t just stop with your home– take these ideas and use them in your office as well! Share these ideas with your friends and colleagues and cheer up the office.

One way to bring Halloween to both inside and outside your home is by your windows.  They are what connect your home to the outside, and they should definitely be taken advantage of. To create the photo above, try using our Roller Shades in a white color.  Next, buy a thin black fabric of your choice and draw the silhouette you want.  Cut the silhouette and sew it to the shades.  An easier option would be to draw the silhouettes onto the shades and paint them black. TA-DA!

Apothecary jars are also a flexible way to decorate your home this Halloween.  Simply replace what you currently fill the jars with, and fill it with any candy you’d like.  In this case, I chose candy corn to bring in the orange and a classic Halloween feature, purple M&Ms, and some black plastic spiders to make people cringe.  You do not have to strictly use apothecary jars, you can use any clear jars you have in your home to complete this look.

Pumpkins with dark purple flowers are also a great way to add the ghostly feel to your home.  For this look, hollow a pumpkin and carve it to the shape of a basket.  Then use your choice of dark, dead looking flowers to fill it in.  This is a great example of decorating with versatility.  Once Thanksgiving arrives, lose the creepy flowers and fill the pumpkin with acorns or fall flowers.

Lastly, the trendy glittered pumpkins!  These are so much fun to make.  You can also turn this into a family craft project to bond as a family.  Create purple and black glittered pumpkins in anyway you’d like.  You can make stripes, polka dots, or solid glittered ones to name a few.  Make sure to have more orange and white pumpkins. That way when Halloween is over, all you have to do is take away the purple and black ones and you’re ready for Thanksgiving.  These can be used outside sitting on bales of hay, throughout your home, or both.

These easy Halloween decorating ideas are all magnificent ways to prepare for this eerie holiday and prep for the next!  After these basic things are in place, you can focus on the small things like replacing your regular candles with black ones, adding cotton cobwebs, and making other small crafts if you dare!
