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!

Supplies:

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

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!

I snatched up these plain white coffee mugs from the dollar store recently, with Christmas gift mugs in mind.  These are perfect to fill with treats, greeting cards, or gift cards for display on Christmas morning.  Stencil custom monograms and text with Martha Stewart's glass paint and adhesive stencils for a personalized keepsake.  Give them to neighbors or coworkers.  They will never know you paid $1!
