Lover's Lane Outdoor Valentines Day Decorations

There is nothing sweeter than a flower pot with a decorative swan on it decorated with pink hearts. This is one of those valentine outdoor decorations that are also easy to make yourself. All you need is a tall white flower pot, some flowers of your favorites, and basic craft supplies. This beautiful project is from Ba Bam Wreaths— unfortunately, there are no tutorials. So, just make your own based on this!

In fact, you can easily turn an ordinary flower pot into a sweet decoration for your home or garden. Paint it black, then draw pictures of swans and heart outlines with paint pens. You could also make an entire arrangement in smaller pots by painting them all different colors. Make sure to have at least one heart on them. That’s because no matter what color they are – red or yellow, each will always be associated with love and romance because of their similarity to red roses or golden apples.

Valentine's Day Garden Flag

You can hang your loved one’s name on a garden flag for all to see and admire. These Valentine’s day flags are bright and cheerful, just like the day! They can be hung from the fence or above a balcony. Write the names of your family members on these flags so that they know you care about them. Perfect for yard decoration!

Hang them on your lawn fence, balcony railings, gates, mailboxes, or even decorate an old barn door. Choose which design best suits your personality: hearts, flowers, gnome couple, love truck, etc. This is the most beautiful way to show how much you love someone in their garden

Porch Swing With Red Cushions

Red and white are great color combinations for Valentine’s Day, but combining them with complementary brown tones can also create a warm, inviting space that exudes coziness.

Throwing red Valentine cushions on a white porch swing instantly changes it into an outdoor space you’d love to curl up on with your significant other. Place some darling heart-shaped mats beneath it to create an extra vibe for the accent. You can buy everything at craft stores if you don’t have anything already on hand!

Valentines Day Sign Door Decor

If you want to put a sign up at your door, choose something sweet and simple, like God Let Me Straight To You. Don’t let indecision keep you from hanging a sign on your front door!

Whatever you choose, don’t forget to add flowers or other accessories!

Gold and Pink Lanterns

Lanterns are a fun and classic decoration that you can use to decorate your home or front yard on Valentine’s Day. We love these golden and pink lanterns that stand in front of the door.

These lanterns feature pink and black-and-white checked bow ties- a great color combination for your holiday décor! You can also put these lantern decorations on the sidesteps or place them along with other valentine decorations in your yard for an easy way to bring some warmth into cold winter days.

Hearts On Wreath and Flocked Tree

Fill an outdoor wreath with glitter foam hearts from Dollar Tree for something more festive than just a traditional wreath. This lightweight material will fly around if you have any breeze on your special day. So if it’s too windy outside, you can either hang it indoors or replace them with real live heart confetti.

To get an exact number of hearts that will fit on your wreath, use some twine and start wrapping it around while leaving a little room at both ends. It would help if you had enough to cover your size based on how full you want it to be. Once you determine exactly how many hearts you need, wrap them up and store them until right before Valentine’s Day! Dollar Tree even has glitter foam Christmas bows for other holidays!

In addition, if you have a flocked tree (after Christmas) in front of your door, fill it with hearts! And voila, you’ve just created a wonderful Valentines day tree. Make use of everything you’re having so nothing can cost you a budget.

You’ve got an old ladder?  Instead of storing them, use them for something useful, like this DIY project.

A red burlap pattern with the letters L-O-V-E will brighten up any porch, patio, backyard, or front door.

Don’t forget to place some small pots of roses on the stairwell, and wrap the yellow LED lights along both sides to add to the romance at night.
