Temporary Valentine’s Day Decorations for Your Apartment

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and love is in the air! You can set the mood for your special someone by lighting candles and wearing your best outfit, but you can’t have the total package without decking out your home to match the atmosphere. Decorating apartments is often a difficult task because of restrictions put in place about how you may or may not be able to customize the area, but you can still bring the joy of the season of love into your apartment without compromising your lease.

Here are some temporary do-it-yourself décor ideas:

Valentine’s Mirror

This one is simple and anyone is sure to love it, both young and old. It’s a different take on the traditional picture exchange gift, but rather than printing out a picture and placing it in a frame, use a framed mirror to create this piece and watch the faces of your loved ones light up as they look at themselves and appreciate the unique keepsake. You can even include a positive message on the mirror as a loving gesture.

Valentine’s Wreath

You don’t typically see wreaths until November and December, but that’s no reason to neglect commemorating this holiday of love. You can make this a rustic piece or stick to more traditional Valentine’s Day colors complete with bows and arrows. When you’re done, hang it outside of your door and spread the love to neighbors, family, friends and significant others. (more…)
