I always feel like my living room looks totally naked once I take down my Christmas decorations. I usually leave my tree up for the first few days of January, and then immediately replace all of my red, green, silver, and gold decor with swaths of red, pink, and white ahead of Valentine’s Day. From heart-shaped garland to pretty tabletop signs, Valentine’s Day decorations are a festive and fun way to transition from the winter holiday season into a season filled with love.
Honestly, I used to think that Valentine’s Day decorations should be reserved solely for classroom parties in elementary schools, but the harder I lean into this particular holiday, the happier I feel. I never thought that pops of red roses to dot my mantle and wooden Conversation Hearts to fill a giant glass bowl in the center of my kitchen table would be my go-to seasonal decorations, but somehow it happened.
If you’re looking to fill your home with all things red, pink, and heart-covered, this list of Valentine’s Day decorations has plenty to choose from. Whether you put a heart-shaped wreath on your front door or hang an LED sign in your window, these decorations are the perfect way to share the love and celebrate the holiday.

The wreath comes complete with a sheer red ribbon that’s tied into a bow in the middle of the heart and extends above the top of the heart so that it can be used to hang on your door or in a window. Measuring approximately 16 inches tall and 17 inches across, this wreath can be used both indoors and out.

You can order different lengths from 4 feet long up to 24 feet long depending on where you’d like to hang the garland. The 100% wool felt shapes can be moved across the string, so if you need to adjust the spacing or arrangement, you can. Once you find the spacing you like though, the shapes won’t move.
