a sweet little Valentine's decoration (plus freebies)

yeah yeah..I know Valentine's Day isn't until next month.
I couldn't help myself.
I love Valentine's Day and I love to decorate with candy.
This lollipop was just asking for a ribbon :)

The pail is from Dollar Tree (wedding section 3/$1).
The ribbon and glass stones I already had.
oh..the lollipops were 2 bags (~30 pops each) for $4 @ Walgreens

I imagine several of these lining our mantle.
Or maybe jars filled with conversation hearts
(I can't stand to eat them but they are just so dang cute).
Or maybe heart shaped Peeps in a vase.

I have lots of ideas for decorations - all inexpensive (and super easy).
We have plenty of time before Feb I'll be sharing all of them :)

Speaking of sharing, I am starting to see some really cute printables.
 Here is my first contribution:
{simple black, white and red}

these are designed for a 3" punch (download here)

I also made some for a 2" those here

YES those would be so cute lining your mantel. Now if you do that you have to show us what it looks like : )

I've used those little pails for tons of things, they're great!

Cute V-Day decoration. I did something similar with stuff from the Dollar Tree. I already have all our decorations up! We will be feeling the love for awhile!
