Valentine's Day Mantle

Usually I only decorate our mantle for Christmas, but I saw this pin and was inspired to do some crafting!
Love Day

I got all my materials at JoAnn's- each letter was on sale for $1.99 and I got a big skein of yarn for about $2. Pretty good if you ask me! It took me a couple days to complete, but here's what the finished product looks like!


Instead of going with the ombre look, I decided to do all pink and have a pop with the white O. And, I already had white yarn, so less of an expense for me! Here is my entire mantle:


I decided to do white with pops of hot pink, since I already had the candles and the white Sentsy Owl. (don't judge, yes that's still my Christmas wreath- I'm calling it my winter wreath so it's okay that it's still up...right?) The little vases I found in the dollar section of Target. Cartwheel had 20% off everything in that section, so each vase came out to $0.80! The flowers I put in it were ones we used at our wedding; the frame was something we used at the wedding too- it was originally for cards, but I wrote Love in it instead. Reuse! I also took some ribbon I had and some white paper and made the little chain on the front of the fireplace. 

How do you like to decorate your home for the different holidays?

  2. What a really cool idea! I don't have any decorations up for Valentine's Day, and don't worry about the wreath! I totally still have our Christmas wreath hanging outside the front door ahahaha I should probably take it down tomorrow!

    I spot an owl! Do you like owl things too?
