Dollar Store Valentine's Day Decor

Now that all of the Christmas decorations have been put away, my house has been left looking cold and bare. And that left me yearning to decorate for Valentine's Day! As a lot of us are these days, we're on a pretty tight budget around here, so I hit up the dollar store for a quick V-Day craft.

In my haste to put this project together and add some pink and red to my house, I forgot to take some photos along the way. I'm sure you can figure it out though. :)

I'm definitely not the first one to come up with this idea, but it was time I jumped on the bandwagon. So, I went to the dollar store and bought a glass candlestick and hurricane. Then I mated those two long lost love birds with E6000 to create create this pretty little combination.


While at the Dollar Store I also picked up some {four bags} hearts on sticks. I can't remember what they called them. Some sort of Pick I think.


The hearts are made of styrofoam so the sticks pulled right out. Once I freed all of my hearts I  plopped strategically placed them in my new hurricane.


And scene!

Five minutes {if you don't count drying time} and six dollars. That's my kind of craft!

Have a great weekend!

Oh, and yes I know I still owe you part two of Christmas in California. I promise to have that up next week.



P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!
