Valentine's Day Mantel with Ombre Tissue Paper Heart

Hi friends,

This is one of the reasons I like to decorate for Valentine's day:  It's a big splash of color that makes these cold, gray days of Winter more bearable.

Well, to tell you the truth, this project was done thanks to the beautiful and surprisingly not so cold day we had yesterday.  Yep, a perfect day to get busy working with these beautiful colors.

The main project was a tissue paper heart that turned out to be a very inexpensive project.
Cardboard was used as a backer.

And of course, tissue paper. I found the small package of ombre tissue paper at Michaels. I had the darker color in my stash. All in all, 13 sheets of tissue were used.

The paper was cut in 3.5 inch squares, and each square was formed into a little flower just by pinching the back center of each square.

Each flower is set on a dot of hot glue, it goes fast.  What took me the most time, was separating the little pieces of tissue paper.

Once the heart was completely covered, double sticky tape was used to attached it to my usual pallet board.

 Then, I went around the house looking for more stuff to add to it.

Love is ... pillow cover

Oh, and I love my latest find, a Valentine's Day pillow cover.

The tissue paper flowers were a last minute decision that worked so well. Each milkglass water goblet was top off with one of those white plastic balls that are full of holes, perfect to set the flowers in said holes. :)

    1. Hahha I like that industrious term. Thanks Brenda! I don't have much Valentine decor, I usually use red stuff I've used during Christmas. This time it was different because of the pink paper I already had.
