Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to decorate your home, look no further than your local Dollar Tree! With a wide variety of items to choose from, you can easily create a festive and cheery vibe without breaking the bank. January is my least favorite month, because outside of Chicago where I’m at is COLD and GRAY – so I use my decor to brighten things up!

I also used my new EV Puff Vinyl to create this fun T-shirt with a Dollar Tree shirt – seriously only $1.25!!

If you’re with me and you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day, head to your local Dollar Tree and stock up on a few essentials that I share in the video below like Dollar Tree Wood Rounds, Dollar Tree Felt Heart Stickers, and Dollar Tree Yarn and Felt. Then, use free printables and SVG cut files to add a personal touch to your decorations. With a little creativity and some basic crafting supplies, you can create a beautiful and love-filled atmosphere that is sure to impress your loved ones.

Check out this adorable pitcher setup that I made with Dollar Tree Felt heart stickers and some FREE branches from my yard! Watch the full video for the tutorial.

Another great way to decorate for Valentine’s Day is by using free printables and SVG cut files. These are digital files that you can download and print at home or use with a cutting machine to create your own decorations. There are a variety of Valentine’s Day printables available below, from cute and whimsical designs to elegant and sophisticated ones. You can use them to create banners and signs, or even to decorate cards or gifts.



In this video, I’m using a Cricut Maker 3 and a smaller Cricut Joy.

SVG cut files are also a great way to decorate for Valentine’s Day – and I’ve got some fun options for you. I’m SO EXCITED about how this free Backstreet Boys SVG turned out. And you can get it below by opting into my craft buddy list – that’s it!

These files can be used with a cutting machine to create your own decorations. You can use them to make your own signs and banners, or even cut out simple heart shapes to use as decorations.

One of the perks of using free printables and SVG cut files is that you can customize your decorations to suit your own personal style. You can choose the colors, fonts, and designs that you like best, and create decorations that are truly unique and special. One of my favorite things about printables and cut files is creating decor that I know no one else will have and it can fit my interests.

My SVG cut files are digital designs that can be imported into Cricut Design Space, a software used to cut and create projects with Cricut cutting machines, as well as Silhouette, Brother, and other vinyl cutting software. These files can be used to create a variety of projects such as cards, home decor, clothing, and more. They can be easily downloaded for free from my website. I’m passionate about providing free resources for Cricut users to help your decor be customized to suit your individual preferences. You can find more of my free cut files here.

    1. Hi Michele – I’m sorry you’re frustrated. That file was one I did a lot of work on in Cricut Design Space and unfortunately, I can’t share the end result. However, if you email [email protected] I can get you the original musky file you can then edit to your liking. Thanks!

  2. New to the Cricut world and trying to get my feet wet. Your videos are so helpful! Thank you!
