Super Quick, Super Easy, Super Cheap Valentine's Decorations

Here are a few Valentine's Day projects you can make.  Super quick.  And super cheap. 

First the banner.  It's hung on a pretty red string with little clothes pins ($2.39 @ Joann's).  I just painted each letter onto burlap.  I used the storybook cartridge on my Cricut. 
Total cost: less than $5.  With left over material

Next, the Styrofoam balls.  I actually got these at the Dollar Tree. The candy.  Dollar Tree.  One is covered in peppermint puffs (this was out at Christmas), one in red hots, and the other in candy conversation hearts.  Just hot glue those suckers on! Total cost $10 {For glue, candy and Styrofoam.  Plus some extra candy for more projects!}

I just copied the statue.  :) I got the letters at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each.  Painted them red.  Used dabs of hot glue to stick them together.  Voila.  Total cost: $4

I grabbed a frame.  Stuck in some scrapbook paper.  Easy.  Total cost: FREE!

I just stuck some candles on the ends (I got at Hobby Lobby for 80% off - left over from Christmas.  But the first is a jar candle with layers of red and pink.  Looked Valentine's to me.  Paid $4.  The other is a pillar candle rolled in red glitter.  Nothing says Valentine's like glitter!  Paid $3.)
