3. Sweethearts Cutouts
These hearts are cuts out to resemble the Sweethearts candies. You can make them by cutting out heart shapes from some different colored manila papers. Then, you can use markers to write down the little messages on the cutout candies. You can then attach some string to the hearts and tie them in a tree or anywhere where they will be hanging.

To make this wreath, you will need to tie together some pieces of cloth cut outs. The cloth pieces must be in the Valentine’s Day colors, so to get in spirit. You can then simply hang the wreath on to you door. You can add other different decorations around your verandah.
5. Heart Shaped Wreaths
For these hearts, you can make them by using some red or white garland. To reuse and be environmentally friendly, you can use some garlands that you used for your Christmas decorations. These hearts can be placed anywhere outside as part of your decorations. If you are to place these hearts on your verandah, you can stick some lights around then just as well.
6. Paper Hearts
These are not your ordinary paper hearts. Instead of cutting out a paper in the form of a heart and simply hang that, you can cut out ore detail to your paper hearts. You can get creative with the patterns that you will cut out from the paper heats. You can decide to make little wreaths with some of your cut out hearts. These are quite easy to make and yet give amazing end results.
7. Heart Messages
For these, you will basically be putting some words onto your decorating hearts. The words could be separate or, could make up a little sweet message for those who will see the decorations. You can place these hearts in plant pots, or attach them to planks and place them out in the lawn.
8. Chalky Hearts
Chalk is great to use for decorations. The awesome advantage of using chalk is that you can easily use water to wash and clean it off. For this decoration, you will be drawing hearts anywhere you please. You can draw them on the pathway that leads to your door, so that everyone can see it as they walk towards your door.
9. Ladder Lettering
For this, you can cut out some letters to make words from some boards. You can paint the letters in a simple color. You then place a short ladder outside where people can see it. On the ladder, place the letters so that they form the intended word. You can then place some pink or red flowers on the ladder just to add some extra detail.
10. Lanterns and Crates
These lanterns do not have to fly away. Instead, you can use some lamp coves that look like lanterns. Make sure that the lanterns are any of the Valentine’s Day colors. You can also tie some ribbons on the lanterns. You can then place these lanterns on some wooden crates. Make sure that you make the crates as Valentine’s Day friendly as you possibly can. You can paint on them some hearts with all the Valentine’s Day colors.
11. Ribbons and Letters
These are a great and simple way to decorate the outside for Valentine’s Day. Use the ribbons to make big bows and then you can hang these on the outside of a door. To add more to this simple decoration, you are to hang some large letters that make up a word just below the ribbon bow on the door. The letters and the bow do not have to be the same color.
12. Nature’s Help
For this, not much will be needed. You can simply place some plain colored letters against a shrub. The reason for placing them against a shrub, is so that the color of the shrub will make the letters outstanding. The plain color of the letters will be over shadowed by the color of the shrubs. You can then place some flowers on the corners of the letters.
13. Little Paper Hearts
For this, you do not need to make the paper hearts from the same colors. Instead, use as many different colors as you like. You can then stick these hearts onto the walk way that leads to your door. You can also choose to use heavier material for the hearts so that you can place them in a random patter onto the lawn. The reason for using the heavier material is so that they won’t get blown away.
14. Window Sweetheart Candies
This is another way you can use the Sweetheart candy form to make decorations. This time, you will be sticking the hearts to a clear window. The best way to use this decoration is to stick the hearts to the inside of the window, but, making the message faces the outside. This way, the hearts will not get affected by weather.
15. Floating Hearts
I love this decoration idea! you need to cut out some hearts from valentine’s day colored manila paper. Then, attach a number of the hearts to a string. You can then hang these hearts in a tree. This will look absolutely beautiful!
