Valentine Mantel:Decorating with hearts

By February 3, 2011Decorating, Holidays, Valentine's Day

Since I live in a house full of men, Valentine’s Day is the one holiday where I can decorate with pink, pretty ribbons and…lots and lots of hearts! Over the years I have collected many different sizes and shapes of hearts, some baskets, boxes, and even some that are ceramic.

I created the Heart Garland with scrapbook and construction paper from my stash, making it not only a fun project but also a frugal one. I will be sharing the tutorial for the Garland next week.

For now though, here is the Valentine Mantel

  1. I started with a piece of pink gingham fabric
  2. Then layered on some white fluffy fabric
  3. Next came the Heart Garlands
  4. Then I starting adding the large hearts, baskets…
  5. ceramic and boxes
  6. and some stuffed hearts also
  7. I filled in with a chunky white candle and some small hearts that were ornaments
  8. On the other end, I added some love birds and a red candle
