Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Door Decorations

Are you looking for Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Door Decorations Inspiration? See how I used a recent thrift store find to decorate for Valentine’s on the porch without spending any additional money.

Y’all, I don’t decorate a lot for Valentine’s Day, but when I found these great heart-shaped baskets while thrifting, I knew exactly how I could use them.

Although they were not identical, I knew they would be perfect for Valentine’s Door Decorations.

How To Decorate A Valentine’s Porch

The first step in decorating the Valentine’s porch is deciding what to put on the door shutters we added last year.

Instead of a traditional wreath, I decided the thrifted white baskets would pop on the black shutters.

I didn’t want to spend additional money to create Valentine’s door decorations, so here’s what I did.

How To Hang Valentine’s Door Decorations

I use these S Hooks to hang the basket on the shutters. I use them all around the house and have a good supply.

To add color to the baskets, I found a couple of flower bundles from last Spring in my stash.

Then the artificial flower bundle was tucked into the basket by allowing the stem to extend out the backside of the basket. One bundle filled the basket perfectly, and I arranged the stems to spill from the baskets.

Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Porch Planters

Since we added tall DIY Faux Galvanized Planters to the front porch, they are easy to decorate with both real and faux plants.

To decorate for a budget-friendly Valentine’s porch, they were filled with faux greenery, which I also used last year, and these DIY Wooden Hearts Trio.

If I store my faux flowers and greenery after the season, I can use them multiple times before needing to replace them.

The wooden hearts are a project I made several years ago, and the trio is attached with jute twine. You can see them hanging on the shutters on this previous Winter’s Valentine’s Day Porch.

Leaving the string attached, they are nestled in a combination of faux eucalyptus and a trailing greenery vine for a different use.

The French Doors

I rarely add wreaths or other decorations to the French doors. We enjoy the view of the ponds and leave them unadorned.

In addition to the planters and door shutters, we have added a DIY address sign above the doors and an oversized outdoor rug to the porch.

Additional Valentine’s Porch Decorations

I also added one of my favorite antique pieces to the porch. The red and blue enamelware container is filled with more faux greenery.

The second set of DIY wooden hearts, grapevine wreaths, and nandina berries complete the large container porch arrangement.

A heart garland is added to the second planter to balance the two planters.

I achieved my goal of a budget-friendly Valentine’s Porch. The only newly purchased items were the two thrift store heart baskets which cost only $7.00 for the pair. All the greenery and faux flowers have been used in different areas around the farmhouse since last Spring and Summer. Even the DIY projects are all from previous years.
