This easy DIY Valentine wall art will make a great addition to any farmhouse style decor.
It is common to have an onset of winter blues in the cold months after December holidays. Thank goodness that Valentine's Day brings the month of February a much needed pick-me-up with it's bright colors and fresh flowers!
Minimal Valentine's Day decor is my personal preference. Having a house covered in festive Christmas decorations just a month prior dictates the need for simplicity. And easy farmhouse Valentine decor in the entryway allows for beautiful, yet simple decorations.
This beautiful and easy display is created with garlands, wall art and a tiered tray. The tray is filled with pretty flowers which is a perfect way to bring in various splashes of colors. The wall art is simple and inexpensive to make especially if you want to use the free printables listed below.
If you are looking for an easy way to get your own home decorated and ready for Valentines Day, you have come to the right place.
DIY Farmhouse Valentine Decor for Entryway
A large entryway or blank wall near your front door entrance can be the perfect spot for your Valentine display. If you don't have these decorating spaces available, other great ideas may be a fireplace mantel display or a side table or wall in your living room.
In my entry way there is a large blank wall. The plan for the main backdrop behind the table display was to have 4 large signs. I wanted them to be black and white with frames and to say 'I love you'. Searching for the right pieces proved to be a difficult task with no results.
DIY Love Sign
When you can't find the exact design or decor you want, sometimes it requires a little improvisation. Creating my own backdrops seemed to be the next best solution.
I hand wrote the 'i love you' and then created this fun design. The handwritten design adds a special touch to these farmhouse signs. The best part of this design is the words all flow together.
Now these are my favorite pieces of this adorable farmhouse Valentine's Day display. I love it so much that the printable is now included for you, for free! (download here) You will need 2 of each design to replicate this picture format.
Inexpensive Way to Get Prints and Frames
For printing these designs, your own printer might work. I wanted to make sure my print quality would produce a clear design. I would recommend finding a print shop that can produce decent quality. Alphagraphics printed these and did a great job. They are 11 x 14 and on cardstock. These prints cost only $2.83.
Check out Walmart or sometimes even the dollar store for thrifty frame finds. I found the frames at Walmart for $8 each.
For under $35 this is a pretty awesome art display that can be changed out through the seasons and not just for your farmhouse Valentine display. The glass can be left in these frames to protect the prints. But you can also take the glass out if the glare bothers you.
DIY Valentine's Day Garlands
Adding fun garlands in front of the signs is ideal for bringing a pop of color and a little more design element to the backdrop of this display. The contrasting dark and light pink hues with white colors really stand out against the black signs.
Why Use Garlands in Your Decorating?
- They are perfect for framing a design space
- Adding character to a wall or table
- Many different kinds - foliage, felt, paper, tassels
- Customize to your needs
- You can make your own
These tassels at Target are perfect. This tassel garland gets to do double duty because after using them in my Valentine's Day decor, I am putting them on my daughter's headboard to add to her bedroom decor.
In addition to the tassel garland I also made this cute felt garland out of felt hearts and balls. It is so simple but makes a big impact. You can view the adorable hearts and felt balls here.
Tiered Tray for Farmhouse Valentine Decor
A tiered tray is not only for food! Tiered trays are ideal for layering decor and showcasing small items or figures.
This tiered tray seems to have found a permanent spot on the entry table. It is so much fun to change out for the holidays! My exact tiered tray is not available anymore, but I have found some similar ones here.
Candies, Candles and Greenery
In my tiered tray I have several different variations of greenery. Namely - Eucalyptus, Lamb's Ear, a few succulents, red Hydrangeas, and flocked Peonies. (shop them all here)
In addition to the greenery there are 3 glass jars full of candy hearts that are red, white and pink. These were found at the Dollar Tree store. Any other holiday candy in Valentine colors will work if you can't find hearts. I also added a buffalo checked candle, a few wood vases from Target, and a heart from Simply Inspired with our anniversary date.

Hopefully this gives you an idea for a great but inexpensive way to incorporate simple Valentine decor into your home this season.
