Although you may not want hearts as a theme in your décor year round, it sure is fun to add them in around Valentine’s Day. There are a number of easy ways you can do this that will add the perfect touch of love and whimsy to your interior. Here is a mix of some of my favorite ways to add hearts to your décor during the first half of February.
Hearts and Crafts
I love these heart art projects that you can recreate each year at craft parties and with kids. The heart napkin installation on the left from designlovefest can be made on a large or small scale depending on where you want to display it. My husband’s birthday happens to fall on Valentine’s Day and that would be the perfect photo backdrop for his birthday party or if you were hosting a Valentine’s Day get together. The heart garland on the right is something that kids of all ages can take part in. It can be hung from doorknobs and light fixtures or draped around door frames giving everyone who enters a little love.
Pillows are perhaps the quickest and easiest way to get into the V-Day spirit. Pull them out of the closet to throw around during February. The online tutorials for creating your own heart pillow are vast, or if you’re a non-DIYer like me you’ll just be purchasing one from someone who is far craftier than you on Etsy.
Serious Heart Art

Brooke Shields is committing to hearts year round with this serious heart art hung above her mantle. This works because her room, although colorful and full of pattern, is still very grownup and traditional. The more whimsical heart art creates a nice balance in the room.
Heart Shaped Eats
Who doesn’t love a heart shaped pancake dyed pink on Valentine’s Day? As my brother’s birthday also falls on Valentine’s Day, those were pretty much a staple in my home growing up, but these mini heart shaped marshmallows and heart shaped biscuits are taking things to the next level.
