Well, here are the supplies that you are going to need; a wood board, metal key, sand paper, scrap paper, paint, stain, pencil, foam brush, nail, and hammer. First, you will need to get that wood board ready for being sanded all around the corners, so it can have that rustic look, then wipe away all the dust that has been produced during your sanding process and start applying stain with the foam brush in a darker color. Wait for about ten minutes until it completely dries, then starts applying sand again to the corners until you get the shape you like. Now, it is time to use the scrap paper that you already got; draw a heart on a piece of it then cut it out and make sure that the heart has a perfectly symmetrical shape. Place your perfect heart on the rustic wood and trace it with a pencil, but make sure you press hard enough while tracing, so you can leave a mark in the wood. Then, start sanding the rest of the area around the heart once again, but make sure you do not mess up the shape of the heart. When everything is set, get the metal key that you have gotten from a local store and start nailing it to the board with a hammer, and there you go. You can place this cute board wherever you want, either on a table in your living room or hang it on the wall of your bedroom.

How you distribute them is totally up to you; you can place them on the center table of the living room or hang them on creative wooden crates. Bottom line, you get to choose wherever you want to place them and they will look fantastic in whatever place you choose and, definitely, they will provide your house with the romantic vibe that you are looking for.
4 A darling piece of art
You can use your inner artist to create a beautiful piece of art that goes perfectly with the theme of love and romance. We will help you get this done with the easiest ways possible. First, you will need essential supplies, including scissors, adhesive material, a frame, black pen, 4 sheets of white cardstock, and pretty ribbons. Before using all of this stuff, you will have to print out the lyrics of your favorite song, but that is not all; also put your landscape lyrics paper again into the printer and print a beautiful shape over it. In this design, you will find a tree printed, so you can use the very similar shape or whatever shape you prefer. What next? There are actually more prints to do; you need to print a pair of beautiful hearts, then cut out all of the printed shapes and place the tree on either a patterned paper or a white one. Now use the cute ribbons to let the hearts hang from the branch of the tree and place the whole art inside a beautiful frame. You can either write your name and your partner’s on each heart or you can just leave it as it is. See the detailed way and tutorials here.
3 Pallet art
This is just another beautiful way to decorate your home romantically, a pallet art design and it is actually pretty simple to do one. Here are the supplies you are going to need: furring strips, hammer, nail, square, miter saw, stain, old shirts, paint, measuring tape, glue gun, paintbrush, and wood glue. Now carefully use the miter saw to cut the furring strips into whatever size you would like then nail the sides of the board in order to create a frame then start nailing your furring strips onto the sides of your frame. To make your piece of art look better, you can give the strips a rustic look by adding a coat of pre-wood conditioner then apply stain after the coat have completely dried. Use the paintbrush to paint the letters you would love to add on your pallet and if you have got ruffles, you can trace the shape of a heart and then shape them into it and pair it with the wood. Now hang your pallet art wherever you want and wait for your partner to come back and see how much effort you have put in order to show all the love you have for them.
2 A doormat
This is the easiest method you can use to show romance through simple decoration ideas; it doesn’t require a lot of money or effort, but do not get us wrong; placing a mat on your doorstep is not actually a sign of love, but putting one with a romantic quote is surely a delightful thing to do. You can either buy a ready-made one from a local store with a reasonable price or DIY it; but to be honest, creating such mat is going to take a lot of effort, so we just recommend buying an affordable one from a local store. And what is actually a better way to tell someone you love them other than before they even step into the home?
1 A heart wreath
Wreath is always an amazing choice when it comes to decoration and it is so popular during the holidays, but you do not need to wait for a holiday to create one; you can just DIY one and hang it around the house to make your partner happy and seeing your beloved one happy is actually worth it more than the holidays. Well, here are what you are going to need: a pink and red scrapbook paper, glue, scissors, ribbons, and cardboard; and there you go.
Draw a big heart on the cardboard, it actually does not have to be perfect since no one is actually going to see the base, and then cut stripes on the adorable red and pink scrapbook papers and start rolling them up. You can use a pencil for rolling them up perfectly if you cannot do it on your own; roll up a lot of them then start cutting them into smaller pieces. Now comes the easy part; glue your rolls over the shape of the heart that you drew earlier on the cardboard; once the shape of the heart is over, you are done with your project. Now, glue the ribbons to the back of the cardboard, so you can hang it on the wall.
Now that you have got several ideas to decorate your home romantically, what are you waiting for? Go and get things done before your partner gets back home and show them how much they mean to you; besides, you do not have to wait for special days like Valentine’s or even the anniversary, it can actually be more surprising and beautiful when it is done without an occasion.
