6 DIY Valentine’s Day Party Decorations
Mylar Heart Treat Bags
This two-step craft is a great last-minute idea for your party. All you have to do is cut out heart shapes from mylar sheets or metallic tissue paper and attach them to the front of glassine bags with a glue stick. Stuff them with candy or other treats and pass out to your guests before they leave.

Confetti poppers aren’t just for New Year’s or the Fourth of July. Decorate them with wrapping paper or paper that you designed. Fill the poppers with glitter or make your own “conversation hearts” confetti. Place them on the dining table if you’re having a Valentine’s Day dinner party or on the buffet or dessert table for guests to grab.

Dress up plain balloons with fake flowers for an extra romantic touch. Clip the stems off the fake flowers and glue to inflated balloons. Then add twine in a coordinating color to the end of the balloon. Place them on dining chairs if you’re hosting a dinner (everyone can take a balloon home) or display a grouping in the corner of a room.

Geometric Wall Art
Add this wall art design above your buffet or dessert table. Get 10 sheets of scrapbook paper in various colors and cut each sheet in half diagonally. Then arrange them on the wall, playing around with the design and pattern, and attach with removable glue dots.

Attach these fun heart links to straws or drink stirrers to make your beverages look even more festive for your Valentine’s Day party. Cut thin strips of paper and fold into a heart shape. Punch one hole at the bottom of the heart shape and one at the top (this one will need to a be a little bit bigger); then slide a straw or skewer through.
