Moving into our house over a year ago meant more space, which to me automatically equated to more room to decorate. And more decorating meant that I needed to stock up on little knick-knacks for the holidays (of course my husband is super pleased with this aspect of the equation).
Out of all the rooms in the house, I was especially eager to paint and add a few more things to the walls in our daughter’s room. We painted the walls of her room periwinkle and once everything was moved in, we added a couple of signs to the walls in her room and hung some shelves where I envisioned holiday décor would go throughout the year.
While I’m still working on the holiday inventory for her room, I’ve tried my best to decorate at least one of her shelves for every holiday/season. When the leaves started changing, I added a happy harvest sign and apple orchard bucket, and for Christmas I added a manger, rustic looking tree and various snowmen. I loved her expressions when she’d see the new decorations on her shelf, and I can’t wait to decorate them with her in the years to come.
While Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday, I still enjoy decorating and getting into the spirit. This year, many stores are lacking in the Valentine’s Day décor department, except for one of my favorite stores, Target. Target never fails me and their dollar section is on point. They have a ton of kid-friendly, cute and colorful decorations for every holiday and when I went a couple of weeks ago, I was particularly smitten with their Valentine’s Day selection.
Here’s where I bought everything I put on her shelves this year for Valentine’s Day:
- The small teddy bear is from Pottery Barn Kids, which can be purchased here
- The Hello Love sign is something I bought from Hobby Lobby last year. I wasn’t able to find it online, but here’s another one that’s really cute.
- I painted the gold P on my own. You can purchase wooden letters at any craft stores and paint them yourself
- I bought the hanger with hearts from Hobby Lobby a while ago too and don’t believe it’s available anymore
- The striped heart sign and wooden heart blocks are from Target’s dollar spot
- Last, but certainly not least, the cute pink garland is from Target’s dollar spot too
First things first, grab your keys and drive to Target now. If you’re inspired to decorate your kid’s room this Valentine’s Day, don’t forget to tag your photos with #marinamakesdiy!
