Thrifty Valentine's decor

I've tried to decorate for Valentines day using things I already have around the house as much as possible. Sometimes it takes the fun out of a project if you keep having to run to the store for supplies and you keep having to shell out lots of moolah. Here are some decorations I made for our family room.

I framed a piece of burlap and glued on some red ribbon and red buttons in the shape of a heart.

I hung these tags on the lamp. I bought a heart punch last year and it is so fun to use. Perfect shaped hearts everytime.

Here is the other end table in our family room.

I got these black frames from Big Lots and will use them for pictures after Valentine's day. I used scrapbook paper and buttons for this one.

Another tag.

I wrapped a candle with faux burlap ribbon. Then added a scrapbook paper heart and another button.

I also decided to make my first ever banner.

I really didn't know what I was doing. I attached it all to cardboard from a frozen pizza box!

Even though it's really small, it's still kinda cute.

My supplies: Scrapbook paper, scrapbook tags, rub-on letters,buttons, and my heart punch.
