Easy Valentines DIY Decorations!

I love to decorate my room for any holiday or season whether it be Christmas, Easter, Spring, Summer etc but I find Valentines day decor suits my room the best- with all the hearts and pink and white pastel colours. So this is how I decorated my room on a budget with limited artistic skills and Pinterest by my side...

Jar Candle Holders

 I used a mason jar for this but you could use any jar even food jars- they're free! I cut a paper doily in half and stuck it to the jar, added a ribbon around the top and placed a battery powered candle in the jar. This could be done with different size jars and different colour ribbons to add variation.

Super Easy Heart Link

 This is just like making paper chains but you use 2 strips of paper and staple them into a heart shape instead. Colour and length is customizable and all you need is some paper and a stapler.

Salt Dough 'Baubles'

Just like the Christmas craft, you could make baubles for valentines day! Make several, attach to some cotton and you have a bunting or simply hang on drawer handles and doors.
All you need is:

 1/2 cup cornstarch,
 1 cup baking soda,
 3/4 cup water.
Place the ingredients into a pan on low heat until the mixture resembles play dough, then roll out and cut to whatever shape you like. Emboss patterns into the dough or add glitter/ sequins. Allow to dry and you're done!

White Heart Bunting
 This one requires cotton and paper/ card. I think you could really go to town with the decoration of the hearts or just keep them simple and cute like these.

These decorations took me just a few hours to make and cost very little money and now, my room looks soooo much more- I want to say 'festive' but does that only refer to Christmas things? Anyway, ya know what I mean :P
