Valentine's Mantel

Well I decided to use a lot of the same decorations that I used last year to decorate my mantel.  Here is my LOVE mantel.  On one side I used some red candles and a little greenery in a dollar spot bucket (Target).

On the other side I used my spray painted candlesticks and felt balls. I also used a couple heart platters that I picked up from Walmart last year that are really plastic serving trays on both sides of my mantel. 

I made my Be Mine pennant banner last year as well.  Here it is all together.

Perfect for Valentine's Day.

After almost a year, I finally added my youngest son's photo to this wall.  I love the black and red together.

We will enjoy our LOVE mantel another week or so before we switch it up for St. Patrick's Day.  Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Chunky Wood Hearts

I found these cute hearts at the Wood Connection.  It's hard to tell how big they are in this photo, but they are pretty good size, the largest is probably about 8 inches across and the small one is close to 4 inches.

I decided to paint them both red, just the sides and edge, then add some scrapbook paper using wood glue.

Here they are all finished with paper and some ribbon to as well. 

They are pretty wide, so they sat on their side.  I ended up using them for prizes for my craft night.  I thought they turned out pretty cute.

So are you all ready for Valentine's day tomorrow?  We actually celebrated tonight and went out to dinner and gave the boys their Valentine goodies too.
