I'll admit, my mantel has been through a post-Christmas dry spell these past several weeks. But, I've finally got a Valentine Mantel up...in plenty of time for the big day. Whew. What a relief, huh?
After Christmas, I placed a few natural elements on my mantel, thinking I'd do a wintry, nature-themed mantel. But, that never really happened. Instead, I left the natural elements in place (pinecones, branches...you get the idea) and added some Valentiney goodies to the mix.
Wa-la! Nature meets pink sparkles. Makes total sense, right??
I used glitter table scatter and pink-glittered ornaments to add pizzazz to my pinecones.
And, of course, I had to use my You Are Loved free printable! For your own copy, check out my post from last week.
I made my valentine bunting from Target dollar spot duct tape, printed in a cheery red chevron. I paired that with some red twine from my stash and, 10 minutes later, I had fun bunting for my mantel!
Simply take a length of twine and fold pieces of duck tape over the twine and onto itself every 2-3 inches. Then trim the ends and add a notch to give it a finished look. So quick and easy!
So, have you decorated your mantel for Valentine's Day yet? Such a fun holiday to decorate for, don't you think?!
