{Valentines decor for under $10}

For the next few days, I'll be showing you how I've decided to decorate for
Valentines Day!
In the past, I never really decorated for the day of L*O*V*E, however I just can't help myself when I see so many cute things on other blogs. So, I decided to try and use $10 or less. Above is a picture of things I bought at the Dollar Tree, a few paint swatches from Home Depot and a stack of paper I've had forever.
Here is the first project...

I chose two pieces of paper from my Mat Stack. I've had this for a really long time, but I'm sure you can use any kind of paper or size of frame you want. I wanted to use some of the same colors as the Conversation Hearts. I just love these little candies. I can eat a few, but that's about it. I like them more for decorating.
I forgot to add a picture here of the supplies I was using, but above you can see a package of little foam stickers. These are so easy to use. Just peel the backing off and stick.

Red Letters on a light blue paper. I put these in some frames I already had in the living room. Just put it over the existing picture and they can be removed after the holiday.

In the other I did orange paper with a pink heart. So simple, it took me about 2 minutes to complete. Better yet, it only cost $1. It looks really cute on our end table!

More L*O*V*E day projects to come.
