Valentine’s Day Decor and Crafts Celebration
Welcome to a special Valentine’s Party here at My Wee Abode. Today, some friends and I have gotten together to bring you some of our best Valentine’s Day decor and crafts, plus a special bonus from even more friends! Read on to find out more!
It’s so fun to be a part of today’s Valentine’s Celebration with our lead hostess, Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home! Amber’s blog features all things vintage in a home that has been curated with all kinds of lovely decor. Thanks, Amber, for heading-up this Valentine’s Day decor and crafts celebration.
VALENTINE’S DAY DECOR and CRAFTS CELEBRATION
Today’s “pop-up” link party is a bit different from what we do for Tuesday Turn About, or any other normal link party for that matter! Not only is this a one-time link party, but it’s also starting in the evening! Such a perfect time to enjoy some red and pink (and some even neutral) homemade loveliness!
Each co-hostess is sharing some of their most popular and special Valentine’s decor, DIYs, and recipes! PLUS many of our fellow blogging buddies are linking-up at the bottom to share even more Valentine’s Day projects, crafts, and more!
If you are here by way of Decor to Adore, welcome! Laura has been ready-ing her home for the season with a Napolean and Josephine twist! Be sure to take a look!
Now, grab yourself a yummy snack and your favorite cold or hot beverage, cozy up on the couch (or bed!), and let’s take a look!
Heart Wreath with a Farmhouse Flair
When I first started blogging, I was inspired by a dear friend’s post of a denim rag wreath made from striped ticking fabric.
It was a no brainer to create this lovely red-and-white striped ticking heart wreath for the month of February!
Reader intel: Word on the street is that this heart wreath may JUST get some ‘press’ soon… Keep your eyes peeled for more details!
Add Some Love to Your Kitchen
Having open shelving in my wee kitchen is so much fun! Why? Because I get to add touches of the season here and there in this small culinary space!
Be inspired with some understated decor accents that I like to add to my winter Valentine’s kitchen shelves.
Valentine’s Wall Art that Lasts
Want something FREE for Valentine’s Day? These printable wall art pieces are great to add to a wall, desk, or shelf!
You can even print these, pop them into a few upcycled thrifted frames, and give them as a gift for Valentine’s Day, a bridal shower, or even a young ladies birthday! (These aren’t just for Valentines’s Day!)
No-Sew Velvet and Wood Bead Garland
This pretty velvet-covered heart garland is super easy to make, and no sewing is required! The wooden beads are affordable and simple to ‘stain’ with acrylic paint!
For a different look, create these velvet hearts in different colors and add them to a big ironstone bowl. (Guess who is doing that next?!)
Some Extra DIYs for the Valentine’s Day Decor and Crafts Celebration
As an added bonus, I thought you might like to see some of my fave Valentine’s Day decor and DIYs from Blogland!
Yummy Heart Hand Pies
Nothing quite like a heart-shaped dessert! These delectable cherry-filled hand pies from Yvonne at Stonegable are a special treat for that special someone!
Vintage Valentine’s Day Centerpiece
Talk about gorgeous! This light and airy Valentine’s Day centerpiece from Ann at Dabbling and Decorating actually made me gasp… just a little!
Hearts and Poms Garland
Yes, I know I featured this adorable garland last week at Tuesday Turn About, but I think it’s worth sharing again at this Valentine’s Day decor and crafts celebration… don’t you? And, of course, I went and bought the special item she suggests! Get the full tutorial at Crissy’s blog, First Day of Home.

Love the red/white ticking heart…very sweet.
Thank you so much, Jeanne! Glad you like the wreath! 😉
Very sweet! I love ticking and I have some red and cream. I think I need to make a wreath. Love it!! Also love the lock on the shelf by the white pitcher. You have created a LOVEly Valentine home!!
Thanks, Jann. Yes, that lock-heart was a special find at Walmart! Crazy, right?
