Valentines Day Decorations DIY: 15 Last-Minute Ideas to Try
1. Glass Candle Holder Decorations
This simple Valentine’s day decoration is something you make out of aluminum foil, and you stick it on your candle holder. All you need is to cut out a pattern, preferably with the use of letterpress dies, and then stick the foil on the glass holder with hot glue.
It adds that subtle romantic touch to your candle holder — perfect for setting the mood.
2. Chandelier Made out of Paper Hearts
Another last-minute DIY Valentine’s Day decoration that you can do is a chandelier hanging from the ceiling made out of paper hearts. All you need are a pair of scissors, a variety of pink, red, and white paper, a wooden ring, and some string.
Cut out heart shapes from the paper, then fold it to create a crease. Paste or tape the inward fold of the heart on the string.
Do this for all of the paper hearts. Do multiple strings of at least four.
Then, stick the string to the ring and then hang it in a place that needs a little dash of decor.
3. Dual-Purpose Wine Glass Valentine Table Decorations
You don’t need to do anything too extra to make this decor work for you. All you really need is candles, some cupcakes, and wine glasses.

You can even replace the cupcake with a rose for an added romantic effect.
4. Photoboard Valentines Day Decorations
Gather and print out photos of you and your Valentine. Find a relatively empty wall, and then simply paste your photos like a collage of sorts on the wall.

5. Kiss Mark Balloons

6. Garland With the Queen of Hearts
You will need a puncher, some yarn, and a deck of cards. You can also spice it up by adding some ribbons.

You can add ribbons between each card to make it look more visually appealing.
7. Tree of Hearts
If you have an empty vase available, then you should create the tree of hearts as one of many simple Valentine’s day decorations. Pick up some branches that aren’t too long that they’ll sag while in the vase.

All you need are pastel-colored papers and red lettering. Cut out heart shapes from these papers, write your own short but sweet messages.
Punch two holes on each heart and then string yarn through it, and you’ve got yourself a romantic garland.
9. Red Glitter Wine Bottle
If you and your significant other have plans to imbibe, then you might want to personalize the bottle to spice things up. One way you can add that spark is by adding a sparkly glitter coat on the bottle.
When doing this, you want to be someplace where you won’t get glitter everywhere.
Coat the bottle of wine including the label with glue, like Mod Podge. Then, sprinkle glitter around the bottle.
Tap the bottle lightly on a surface to shake off any excess glitter. Shake it a few times more to be sure you keep an even layer of glitter on the bottle.
10. Fingerpainting Mason Jars
You can also use mason jars as small flower vases to use all over the house. To turn these into Valentine’s Day decorations, you should paint the whole jar white.
Then, using your thumbs, paint hearts all over the jar with different colors. It’s a cute and simple way of decorating your jars to make it fit for Valentine’s theme.

12. Red Tissue Paper Heart Wreath Valentine Door Decorations
If you want your door to be decorated for Valentine’s as well, then you can’t go wrong with a wreath.
Get a bunch of paper with different shades of pink and red and a puncher with scalloped edges. Pile different shades of these punched papers on top of each other.
Scrunch the first paper and then the paper below it, and continue until you have a flower. With your foam wreath, you can simply pin these flowers onto the wreath and cover it to create the flowery heart wreath. Hang it in front of your door.
13. XOXO Table Cloth
Another simple Valentine’s day decoration that you can do is an XOXO table cloth. What you’ll need is a plain tablecloth with no patterns and the fabric paint color of your choice.
It could be anything as long as it’s visible when applied on the table cloth. Then, create an X and O pattern all over the table cloth.
14. Yarn Heart Valentine Light Decorations
For this one, you will need a heart-shaped balloon, yarn, lots of glue, copper string lights, yarns in romantic colors, and washi tape.
