Thrifty Valentine Decorating

Happy Friday!! Who's ready for the weekend?

Now that it's officially February, I've started some Valentine decorating.  I was able to reuse a few pieces from last year to create Valentine decor for a shelf.

Last Spring I decorated a few glass jars and vases to have around the house in my Spring decor, and I particularly liked this glass vase I painted.  

My mother in law found it at a thrift store and gave it to me, knowing I had been painting glass jars and vases. (Find my tutorial for painting glass jars HERE)

I had also picked up a few inexpensive heart wreaths from Michael's last February, so I incorporated one of those onto my Valentine shelf as well, along with a plain white 8x8 canvas that I have yet to do anything with.

Here's my result!
  Simple, yet it adds a little pink and sparkle for Valentines.

Having pulled a decorated vase used in last year's Spring decor, a Valentine wreath used last year, and a plain canvas I have sitting around...I created a "new" Valentine shelf! Old pieces used in a new arrangement.

Always check your current stock prior to purchasing all new holiday or season decor! There may be a few pieces you can re-use in a new arrangement, which saves $$! That's always nice!

Be sure to save any sauce jars or food jars, they can be used in decor also...take my painted salsa jar for example:

My current home screen and lock screen:
