Even if you waited until the last minute, there's no time like the present to whip up some easy DIY Valentine's Day decorations. After all, who couldn't use an infusion of bright heart-shaped decor this otherwise dreary time of year?

It's one of the simplest holidays to decorate for, too. Flowers (think: roses and carnations), can be purchased at the grocery store and provide instant festivity. And, there are plenty of things you can craft yourself like wreaths, Zoom-friendly banners, table decorations (don't skimp on the scented candles) and centerpieces using basic supplies—paper, paint, and yarn—that you can get at the Dollar Tree.

No matter what area of your home your targeting—your dining room, kitchen, office, bedroom, or even an outdoor area like the porch—turn on some festive Valentine's Day tunes and let these romantic and surprisingly elegant DIY Valentine's Day decorations set the tone for your V-Day party or virtual Galentine's Day gift exchange.
