These DIY Valentine's Day decor projects will make your home more festive without making your wallet too much lighter.

Make Cupcake Liner Pom Pom Flowers

If you want to add a floral touch to your Valentine's Day decor, save a bundle of money by making adorable pom pom flowers out of cupcake liners. Since cupcake liners are inexpensive, these flowers cost just a fraction of the price of real or even silk flowers, and they have a quirky, whimsical look about them.
