Rustic Valentine's Day Mantel

Well Hello!

I've said it many times before and I will say it again , I don't decorate much for Valentines, but after taking down and packing all the Christmas decor, the house looked empty.

So here I am with one more Valentine's day mantel.

The space we always use is the family room, it felt bare, cold. So, creating a mantel display was the first thing to do after getting rid of Christmas.

Having this rustic display with the neutral color palette gives me the option to
leave it here way past Valentine's day, or maybe even after Summer, who knows. ;)

As many of you already know, the focal point, the rustic heart wall art, was a DIY project using repurposed materials.  You can check that project right HERE.

Only after editing the pictures I noticed the Sharpie marks on the edges of the hearts.
Note to self: Trace the shape on the back of the metal. 🙄

But hey, I love all that rust and the nail holes on the small heart.

I added the beaded heart to brighten up those weathered hearts and my daughter got me the pom pom garlands.
I love the grey, white and pink combo. These soft fluffy pom poms are a huge contrast to the rough aged centerpiece.

The paper cone trees that I crafted for Christmas, came in handy. They were mounted a top wooden candle holders.

The final element to be added were these metal tealight holders I got during Christmas at Walmart. Christmas decor always comes in handy during this transitional time.

And just by dressing up this little area, my family room doesn't feel that empty anymore.
