Valentine's Day Mantel

Valentine mantel with scrap molding heart

As usual, the place I like to decorate for Valentines is my family room mantel. Well, not only for V-day but for most of the holidays. Being this the room my family uses the most, I can truly say we really enjoy the new decor that comes with each new season or holiday. 

It's fun when I see my kids close to the fireplace, especially during these cold days, warming themselves up and playing around with the stuff I place on the mantel. Even before taking the pics I noticed the garland hearts were mysteriously disappearing! :)

scraps of molding were Elmer's glued to give the weathered effect.

This year's focal point is the Heart Art, thanks so much for your kind comments on this project. It was placed a top one of the old windows that got painted ASCP-Duck Blue.

However, I don't know why,
I was not happy with only one big, gigantic heart.
Nope.

I went heart hunting. :)
Recycled beaded hearts were brought up.

And a handful of  Fabric Hearts were also added.
Yeah...
I'm now feeling like the Queen of Hearts!

Truth is,
These were the tools I used. ;)

A sheaf of arrows I created.
Hmmm, no other way around it.

Timing was perfect...
Perfect for Valentines.

  1. Love the idea of using baseboard pieces! Great repurposing and your mantle looks spectacular!
    I imagine you could get a ton of scraps free from building sites. Just fantastic!
