Love is in the air and my mantel is all decked out. I love creating mantels and am especially pleased with the way this Valentine Mantel came together.
The focal point of the mantel is the adorable printable that I downloaded from Jen at Tatertots and Jello. I used the gray version but she also has a pink version too. I love the quote that she used. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that my blog title is also a Beatles song.
I had the aqua frame from my Spring Frame project from last year. It worked out perfectly and I love the aqua and pink color combo. The pink heart is my Valentine Hanging project from last year. I simply removed the ribbon and tipped it on its side.
I also made the paint chip banner last year as well.
The pink lanterns were from my daughter’s Princess Party. They have been sitting in my garage and I have almost thrown them away on numerous occasions. I’m glad I didn’t! The votive candle holders are from my New Year’s Mantel. I may fill them with conversation hearts. I got the “kiss” jar from the Target dollar bin last year and filled it with hershey kisses.
I love that you can pull together a festive mantel for practically no cost at all. Total cost: $1.59 (I sent the print to Costco).
I’ve got a few more Valentine projects in the works that I’m excited to share in the next few weeks.
