I love wreaths. I’ve made wreaths for my front door for so many years I’ve lost count. I welcome each new season and my guests with a fresh wreath or basket hung on my door. Sometimes I repurpose things I already have and sometimes I spring for something new. I’ve had this heart wreath base for several years and it’s been transformed a few times. Click the link above for more details on the three latest versions.

Vintage Inspired Valentine’s Heart Pillow

Pillows are, in my opinion, the secret weapon to adding seasonal touches to your decor. By simply adding pillows in the colors of the season you can breathe a breath of fresh air into your living spaces. Don’t feel like you need to replace every pillow in the room. Just switch out one or two…it won’t take any time at all and will make such a difference. 

Tip: Invest in a set of red pillow covers that fit inserts you already have. They can be used for Valentine’s Day, all the summer patriotic holidays and Christmas!

Printable art is a budget-friendly (and sometimes free) way to change out your wall art for the seasons. I have a set of three black frames in my entry and I rotate the artwork all the time. I have a couple of different sets of mats too which makes it fun and fresh. If you don’t have any wall space, layer a frame on a bookshelf or use a frame with an easel.

By the time Valentine’s Day rolls around, I’m already looking forward to spring…and nothing adds that touch of spring to your home more than fresh tulips. They usually appear in grocery stores and florist shops a few weeks before Valentine’s Day. My favorites are red and pink…but lavender or white will work too. I’ve treated myself twice already this year…and am sure I’ll be splurging again!

    Ann, your home is so lovely! You have a real gift for decorating!

    Your wreaths are gorgeous! Love them all! Thanks, too, for all your great ideas! We are so blessed!

  2. Everything is beautiful. Love the wreaths!

  3. Mary chris says:

    I love your printable . I printed out the valentines one and I am using them this week for notes at work.

  4. Pamela Brockdorf says:

    I subscribed to you email list but confirmed on my Iphone, now I can’ get the free offers to come up on my computer. Any ideas of how I can receive them?

  5. Ann, you are the all time queen of gorgeous wreaths! I’ve had such good luck copying some of them: I’ve even had nighbors knock on my door to tell me how much they liked my wreath wanting to know where I got them!! Your two heart wreaths posted here are gorgeous, simply gorgeous. I may have to do both of them and change them out with each other until Fall. The LOVE pillow is perfect…THAT is on my list. I had forgotten but quickly remembered the Anthro. pillow from last year, in fact, I had bookmarked it! I think it would look great along with the red LOVE pillow. Your home is always so creatively and tastefully decorated Ann. Thanks for your “everyday” inspiration.

  13. Ginger Maloney says:

    Hi Anne… I really enjoy your blog… can you tell me what printer you use for your printables, etc.
    and does it also print photos well??
    thank you for your hard work for us to enjoy

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Ginger,
      My printers is an old HP inkjet that I bought about 4 years ago at a discount store. I would not recommend it. My friend Karen, from The Graphics Fairy, recommends this one and I have been meaning to order it myself.

      It’s an Epson which is a good brand. If I were to get an HP it would be this one:

      I hope this helps…let me know what you decide. I don’t ever print photos so I’m no help there. Good luck!
      Ann

  20. Kris {Driven by Decor} says:

    I always love your ideas Ann! I’m dying over that heart shaped wreath – I need that in my life. And I’m with you on the tulips – they’re one of my faves. Thanks so much for joining us!

  21. I love the Valentine pillow with the buttons. It is so clever! I have the buttons but not sure I have the patience.

  22. Nancy Longhibler says:

    Ann,
    Love these ideas. I have a heart shaped wreath frame but, couldn’t decide how to decorate it. Now I just need to decide which design to do first. And where did you get the gold & white pitcher? I’d love to get one like that. Once again your ideas are simple, doable and make such an impact! Thanks for sharing them.
    Nancy

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Nancy!
      The gold and white pitcher was on the markdown cart at TJMaxx. I looked for a similar one, to leave a link, but had no luck. Thanks!

  23. Linda Jung says:

    Thank you Ann, My favorite is the two wreaths!

  24. Jennifer Griffin says:

    These are such good ideas, Ann! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a heart shaped grapevine wreath, now I want one! ;) Thank you so much for joining us for MFF and sharing your beautiful work with us today!

  25. Just love the heart wreaths!

  26. Denise :) says:

    Love these ideas! Wreaths are a favorite of mine, too. I absolutely adore the woven tray you’ve got pictured in the last idea. I’ve been looking for the perfect tray for our space. Do you remember where you got it? Thank you!! :)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      The tray is from Pottery Barn but is no longer available. They just came out with one that’s almost the same…it’s just a bit smaller. Here is my affiliate link: http://rstyle.me/n/cdzk99b4svx. Hope this helps!

  27. Everything is so pretty. Did you have the oval mat cut like that, or did it come with the frame, and if so where did you get that?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      The oval mat was pre-cut from Hobby Lobby…I think it was just a few dollars. Hope this helps!

  28. Beautiful! No, gorgeous images! Thanks so much for sharing! I love all of your ideas!

  29. Lisa | Shine Your Light says:

    Your home is beautiful, Ann! I love all your pretty touches for Valentines! Red and pink tulips are my go-to also, they instantly make the house feel cheerful don’t they? Thank you so much for joining us today and sharing your favorite ideas. I enjoy your blog so much!

  30. Terri Herman says:

    Thanks a bunch! Love the button pillow idea. Pinned it! & the ❤️ Wreath.

  31. Jeanette Duke says:

    Your Valentine decor looks lovely! I especially love the door wreath and the tulips have me all ready for spring as they are one of my favorites.

  32. Anne Marie says:

    Great tips – love that basket tray in the bottom picture. Do you have a source for this tray?
