Valentine's Mantle


The love is in the air at our house.  Here is the Mantel and some other random Valentine's decorations scattered around my house.
First up is the Mantel:


I went to Michael's and bought the wood letters for the Love sign.  I was going to paint the letters, but I decided to mod podge Valentine tissue paper to them instead.  I attached the letters to some scrap wood that I painted red.


I also wanted another heart over on the right side which I didn't have, so I cut a heart from scarp booking paper and mod podged the same tissue paper to that, as well. 


The candles just have some Valentine's ribbon taped to them for some added color.


Here is my little entry way table decorated for V-day:

Last year I made this heart wreath from these really pretty roses I found at the Dollar Tree and I bought the heart grapevine wreath at Micheal's.  I also made me some love letters for the table (well, I can dream they are real, can't I?).


This wreath I made last year and it's hanging on my front door again.  I just love how it turned out.


These are above my entertainment center.  I love to decorate this area as well in our family room.  I found the Valentine subway art online and I had this plate so I decided to wrap some ribbon around it with hearts.  The Love letters and the felt banner are from Target this year.  I also made the rose ball from streamers after I saw it posted on Pinterest.  Here's the link if interested:  (www.theidearoom.net).



Thanks for stopping by!  I also hope everyone has a lovely Valentine's day.
