Today I’m sharing some super easy Dollar Tree valentine DIYs that you won’t want to miss. The best part is I have a video to go with it.
I have some super exciting news I’m teaming up with Mona from Craft Klatch. We are creating Dollar Tree DIYs and the budget was ten dollars. We could supplement it with items we have in our own home already, but we don’t know what each other is making and I’m super excited to share this with you. I ran to our local Dollar Tree and grabbed a few supplies to get started on my projects, and here we go.

How to make simple Valentine decorations?
Here are several easy Valentine decorations ideas, and at the end of this post I’ll share even more ideas, and links to other easy Valentine tutorials to help you.
Dollar Tree Valentine instructions
I’ll be starting with the tutorials of all the projects I made, and then we’ll do a home tour at the end.
Light Up Canvas Art
For this first project, I’m using some battery-operated lights and this artwork from Dollar Tree.
I started by turning the piece of artwork over to the back and then put the batteries into the lights, and placed them onto the back of the artwork. I then hot glued the lights into the place where I wanted them to be.
Now all I have to do is turn them on, and I can place this artwork anywhere I want it to be in my home.
Wall Decor and Signs
For this project, I’m using rub-on transfers and the ceramic heart that I found at Dollar Tree.
Following the transfer instructions I peeled the backing off and placed it onto the ceramic heart.
Once I had that in place I went ahead and used a credit card to rub all the transfer onto the ceramic heart.
I carefully peeled the backoff this was to make sure that it was definitely transferred. If not I would have put it back down and rubbed some more once it was peeled off this project was done as well.
I’ll be adding some twine to this and hanging it up in our home.
Using Heart Doilies
For this next project, I’m using dollar store doily hearts. I started by taking two of the hearts and hot glue them together.
Once I did this I continued to hot glue the hearts together in a shape that I wanted and then ultimately created a table runner. I can’t wait to show you what it looks like on the table.
For this project, I’m using a package of dollar Store wooden hearts
I’ll be using Folk Art Ultra Dye and I covered my hands with gloves to protect them from being stained or dyed. I poured a little bit of the dye into a container and then I used a paintbrush to paint it onto the wooden hearts. I went ahead and gave the hearts two coats so they’d be a nice vibrant color and then let them dry completely.
Now I love the ultra dye because it is water-based so it cleans out your brushes nicely and easily. I grabbed some Folk Art stencils that I had and these are wonderful silk screen stencils. I peeled the back off and placed them onto each of the hearts.
Next, I grabbed my Folk Art Sign Shop white paint and my squeegee brush. I placed the white paint at the top of each stencil and then I used my squeegee brush to press down and make sure the paint went through the silk screen.
Once the paint was in place I peeled up each of the stencils washed them and cleaned them for future use.
Now the dye did come through the white paint. Instead of it being white it did turn a pink color. I actually like the way it turned out and then I let all of this dry completely.
Valentine Pillow Cover
For this project, I’m using a dollar store pillow cover and one of the stencils I had on hand.
I opened up the pillow cover and placed a piece of wax paper in the center to help prevent bleed-through.
I placed the stencil on top and added some stencil tape on the top and the bottom to hold the stencil into place.
I’ll be using folk art home decor chalk paint in the color white. I dipped my stencil brush into the white paint and then I offloaded all the excess paint onto my blue tray. If you don’t do this step you could end up with paint going underneath a stencil and causing bleeding. Once I had the stencil brush with paint ready I tapped the paintbrush up and down onto the fabric and stencil transferring it onto the pillowcase.
Once the entire stencil was completed I carefully peeled off the stencil to reveal the design.
I’ll let that dry completely before putting the pillow insert inside.
Valentine Kitchen Cabinets
For this next project, I took some painter’s tape and put it on a door. I added a little dab of hot glue onto the painter’s tape.
I placed a doily on top of this on my door. This will make it really easy to peel off later and protect my door.
I continued this same process with all of my cabinets: a little bit of painter’s tape, a little bit of glue. and then some of those leftover doilies just decorate my kitchen space.
Dollar Tree Valentine Home Tour
Now that all the projects are done, let’s go check them out!
We’ll start with the kitchen where you can see all the extra doilies that I had decorating the kitchen space.
Here you’ll see my doily table runner in addition to that I had some of the extra doilies and I use them as place settings.
My light-up Paris sign goes nicely by my front door on my little side table that says Paris on it. You can see my tutorial for my table at Quick and Easy Side Table Makeover On A Budget
I hot glued all my wooden Hearts to a little kite string and hung this by the mantel.
I hung up my little ceramic heart.
I added the pillow to the pillowcase and placed it on our couch.
My Valentine’s Day DIY total is $9!
