My Valentine’s Mantel and Valentine’s Decor Ideas


Hi friends! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! I sure did!  I wanted to show you all my progress on my valentine’s decor! I posted a picture of this on my Instagram and couldn’t believe the sweet comments! Just about everything on the shelf was a DIY craft project.

I took a 2’x2′ piece of plywood from the basement and gave it a good coat of white paint. Then I traced the chevron pattern on the wood and hand painted the pink stripes. My sweet hubby helped me paint the stripes so it went pretty quickly; then, I just hung my thrift store wreath right up there.

I made these Valentine’s topiary trees using party streamers! You can see that post here.
Sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy šŸ™

Our spring banner and Savannah’s Valentine’s banner (which she’ll show you later!) were my inspiration for my “Be Mine” banner. I’m not gonna lie, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

I used my great grandmother’s pair of her broken vintage earrings on each end of the banner giving it some sentimental value.

I combined all of my favorite fabrics and trims to come up with a feminine and unique banner! You can’t go wrong combining chevron, burlap, lace, ruffles, glitter, rhinestones, pearls, yarn, webbing and doilies! Seriously all of my favorite things!

I made the glittered letters from cardstock on my Silhouette and used modpodge and glitter to bling them out! Super cute, easy and cheap!
The owl was from Marshall’s (a gift from my sweet friend, Kate!) and the glittery heart was from Michael’s using a coupon.
Now we just need to get Hobby Lobby on board with the iphone app business. šŸ™‚
There you have it! Is your valentine’s decor up yet?? I LOOOOOVE this holiday! What’s not to love!?

So the questions is… do YOU like it? Let’s hear it!

    So pretty! I love the chevron back drop – so sweet that your hubby helped you paint it. Mine is very supportive of what I do as long as he doesn’t have to do anything! šŸ™‚
