Do you like to add a little decor for Valentine’s Day?
If you’ve been following us for very long, you know I love to decorate my front porch for the seasons.
One of the best places to start is the front door.
I’ve created this quick and easy Valentine’s Day decor for you front door that can be made in less than an hour and for about $12.
You can’t beat that!
Not only do I love to decorate the front porch for holidays, but I also love to add a little holiday decor inside as well.

I’ve put together a little tour of some of my Valentine’s Day decor.
Valentine’s Decor Supplies
For this quick and easy Valentine craft I used:
- Red decor heart (Dollar Tree)
- Red yarn
- Wood “love” word (Dollar Tree or Amazon)
- Cardboard scrap
For this Valentine’s Day Decor I made 22 pom-poms that I attached to a heart frame.
I used a chunky weight yarn, however any yarn will work, you just may need to adjust the number of pom-poms.
How to Make a Pom-Pom
First cut a square piece of cardboard 3″x3″.
Next while holding the end of the yarn with your thumb start wrapping the yarn around the cardboard piece.
I wrapped the yarn 60 times around the cardboard.
If you are using a lighter weight yarn you may find you need to wrap the yarn more times around.
You may need to experiment a bit depending on the weight of your yarn.
At this time, slide the yarn off the cardboard.
Next place a 12″ piece of yarn under the yarn bundle.
Then wrap it completely around the middle and secure tightly with a knot.

Hold the tie ends and cut all the loops.
Now fluff the the yarn.
As you fluff the pom-pom you may see loops that did not get cut, be sure to cut them all.
Continue holding the pom-pom by the ties and trim and shape the pom-pom into the shape of a ball.
I found that I needed 22 pom-poms.
Attach Pom-Poms to Heart Frame
At this time, remove the red tinsel trim from the Valentine decor heart.
Begin attaching the pom-poms to the heart frame.
I started at the bottom of the heart and worked my way to the top.
Securing each pom-pom with a square knot.

When all of the pom-poms are attached to the heart frame, flip the Valentine’s Decor over and trim off the tails.
Attach “Love” Word
To attach the “love” decor to the pom-pom heart I first removed the twine hanger from the left side.
Then I placed a piece of ribbon through the loop of the “L” and secured it to the heart frame.
And finally, I attached the right side of the “love” decor, with the twine piece.
Simply pull it through to the backside of the heart with your finger or crochet hook.
I found that the crochet hook made it super easy.
Then I also used the hook to knot it to the heart frame.Last but not least, I decided to add a ribbon at the top for hanging.
Enjoy Valentine’s Day Decor
Last but not least, I decided to add a ribbon at the top for hanging.
Yes, you can see the remnants of my Christmas decor on the porch.
In fact, I thought since it’s still wintery here, I’d leave the tree up and add some hearts for Valentine’s Day decor.
