Drum roll please………..
Here it is!
I had so much fun planning and decorating this year’s Valentine’s Mantel, drawing once again from Pinterest for some inspiration. The Heart Flag Banner, as shown on yesterday’s post, was a Pinterest find, as was the free Valentine’s printable shown behind it. The Conversation Blocks and the Mini Mailbox were also Pinterest gems.
I dug the frame out of my craft closet a few days ago and gave it a few coats of white paint before filling it with my Valentine’s printable from last year. The heart felt banner is an oldie craft from a few years ago. Then, I just used a pink glass heart candy dish set upright, a glass vase from Hobby Lobby filled with a white votive candle and placed on a wine glass (all from the Dollar Store in years past). Lastly, I set the mini mailbox on another wine glass to add height. I love that I can combine things I already have in a different way every year to make my mantel new and fresh!
I went for a more simplistic, less busy arrangement than the original, but I liked how my Pinterest inspiration intermixed candles, used a banner, and a framed printable in the center.
Here’s where I drew my inspiration:
So what do you think of my mantel? I hope it lived up to the hype I’ve created (or at least tried to create). 🙂
