Hello! I wanted to share my decor challenge with you all today. My fireplace mantle ( I am not a fan of my fireplace, more to come on the transformation I have in store), I wanted a simple clean Valentine’s mantle and I want it DIY. I love Valentine’s, I love the color, the hearts, the smells, but sometimes it can turn crazy and cluttered. With so many Valentine’s decorations around the house, I didn’t want to go overboard with my mantlepiece; the center of our home. So I challenged myself to try a simple, yet festive DIY mantle, with stuff I already own.
I love the way it came together. Using an old window frame, my old farmhouse mirror with a twig wreath, some paper hearts, sticks in a teapot vase, a styrofoam ball with red and white faux flowers inserted on top of a candlestick, a fun you and me sign in red to keep along with my theme. There you have it. LOVE!
My teapot of “Valentine’s flowers” was easy to make, just tape a few smaller hearts cut out from the same paper as the window pane hearts, to the top of the sticks. Place the sticks in a fun whimsical vase. I cut out a cardboard circle, painted it red and then added you and me with white paint. I also added some fun dots around the circle with a Q-tip and white paint. My faux flower ball is a styrofoam ball from my craft stash with faux red and white flowers poked into the ball. I taped some bigger hearts, from the same paper as the small hearts, to the center of each window pane. I then taped a fifth heart in the center of my wreath on the mirror. Hearts for days!!!
