Pretty Valentine’s Decorations that are Pretty and FAST!

If you are like me and don’t want to use the pre-made flimsy garland and cheesy banners in your Valentine’s Day decorations, try this  Romance Renaissance Quick Trick …

Take a pack of Rick Rack you might have around the house or in your sewing basket already … this strand is great because it already had sparkles on it. I got it from a JoAnn Fabric and Craft store ...


These cards were not only pretty, they were pretty sturdy as well — and inexpensive!


Sit them on top of the rick rack. These cards were perfect for a banner because they were all alike and opened at the bottom. This made it possible to SIT them on the rick rack without having to glue or staple them. Now, they can be re-used.




I  bought one pack of six to decorate with, and one to send out.




My Hallmark store offered me free stickers to go on the back of every envelope in the packet of Valentine's that I purchased. Make sure you get yours too ... and remember to ask about their loyalty program - earn points for goodies!


I just tied them up between the sconces over my fireplace ...


However -- if you hang them from a fireplace mantle like I did, feel of the cards occasionally to make sure they are not getting too hot. You want a "HOT" Valentine's Day, but you don't want to burn down the house! NEVER leave a burning fireplace or candles unattended ..!

You are the Diva! I love the fireplace decorations! I got my Valentine and have it sitting next to vases filled with camellias that I stole from my next door neighbor’s yard. Harry and I are having a very low key Valentine’s Day. We bought a box of chocolate covered cherries at Kroger to share while we watch TV. No champagne and roses for us. Harry did bring me a beautiful orchid a few weeks ago, though, and it is still blooming! Love you, D
