Dollar Store Valentine’s Decor

Dollar Store Valentine's Day Decor EASY and Cheap @savedbyloves

If you are looking to get festive for Valentine’s Day, and decorate quickly for little cost, this is the project for you!  I made it to the dollar store yesterday for the first time in way too long (ok, since Christmas), and found myself in a wonderland of pink, red, LOVE and hearts.  I noticed some fun Valentine’s Day gift bags, and the wheels started turning.  It occurred to me that I could frame them for a lovely mantel, cupid style.  I grabbed three bags, 2 frames.  For that $5 + some items I already had, and about 10 minutes of my time, I created a lovetastic scene.  So can you!


Frames (one I had on hand, the other 2 are from Dollar Tree), bags from dollar store, scissors

Cut area of bag to fit frame and insert.  The end!

For the smaller frame, I removed the 3D heart that was on one side of the gift bag and placed it on the outside of the frame for depth and interest.

The little pink and red heart scatter are from Dollar Tree too.

Not bad for under $10, huh?  I have the other sides of the bags to create with too!

  1. […] I like having seasonal framed art up around my house on mantels and bookcase tops. While there is a lot of great printable art available online around the different holidays, I feel like I'm always out of ink or too cheap to use it (seriously, when is the dollar store going to start carrying that!). When I saw that Johnnie (she's a girl) from Saved by Love Creations was framing Valentine's Day gift bags, I knew it was the answer to my ink-related issues. The dollar store is a great place to get a variety of gift bags for any holiday – and sometimes packages gift bags in sets of  two: giving you even more bang for your buck.
