In most years the weeks between New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day can feel pretty bleak and boring. It’s cold and the roads are often snow covered, so many people stay home where it’s warm and cozy. There’s usually not much happening …
This winter has been quite the exception, wouldn’t you say? ? (Don’t worry, I’m not about to get political.)
Valentine’s Day, cheesy as it may be, is like a little bright spot in the middle of the frigid, gray winter. So I thought it would be fun to share a few ways to “spread the love” around your home.
Make it Personal
This first little project can be done quickly and isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. If you keep the color scheme neutral, you could leave it up all year.
Here’s the quick step-by-step. First, do a Google search for the lyrics of your favorite romantic song, or in my case, your wedding song. Pick a cute font, print it out on some nice paper and frame it up. Done!
Save the Date
This next idea is a great way to add a unique touch to your mantle or bookshelf for Valentine’s Day. Use glue to attach wood letters from the craft store to a piece of scrap wood and spell out your special date in Roman numerals.
First date? First kiss? Wedding date? Whatever romantic day you want to remember.
Lastly, who doesn’t love a good printable? They make it easy to switch things up for different seasons and holidays. This one (available through my etsy shop) features a sweet watercolor succulent and foliage arrangement–perfect for winter–and the following quote: “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu
Or, if you want to keep it a little more light-hearted. You can download this next one for free.
From the classic, “When Harry Met Sally.” Need I say more?
However you spend February 14 this year, I hope you have a great one! Hopefully we can all do a little something to help spread the LOVE this winter!
