Are you looking for some easy and inexpensive DIY Valentine Decorations ideas? I’m excited to share two projects that took only a couple minutes each. 

The first project is a Conversation Heart Candle votive.

You only need 3 items to make this.

Fill your votive holder half full of Conversation hearts and place your candle on the top. You shouldn’t eat the candies after using them as a decoration, they will be dried out and possibly have wax on them.

You can line a table with several of these or use votive holders in different sizes to create a different look.

I also created a framed 5×7 saying that I put on our coffee table for Valentine’s Day.  I had picked up an inexpensive white frame the last time I was at Ikea so I used that.  You can find a frame at many dollar stores that would work great.

Keeping it simple yet festive is the best and easiest way to decorate.  I would love to see any Valentine projects that you have to share!  Leave them in the comments below and I will check them out!

    LOVE the idea of conversation hearts in a votive, I’m pretty sure no one really eats them anyway. :) We just listed some Custom Valentine’s Printables on our Etsy shop, they’d make great home made kids valentines. https://www.etsy.com/listing/122125700/custom-printable-party-circles-stripe

    LOVE the votive! Now, if I can only keep from eating all the small hearts at the bottom below the candle each day. Hmmm…maybe I’d better stick to Vday printables :).
