I am sharing my Valentine mantel today. I am so happy that February has arrived. It’s a short month and since we are already 4 days in, I’m feeling like we.can.do.this. The next decorations going up will be Spring inspired!! So come on in, and take a look at what I’m looking at on my mantel right now. . .
Inspiration began with some small pieces of pallet wood left over from our Insulated Fireplace Cover (you can get the details by clicking on the colored words). I Wanted to create something with wood and wire, and this seemed to be the answer.
I just glued the boards together and then formed the words with some gold wire. The heart is lined with a gold mesh on clearance from Christmas. A few dabs of E6000 hold the letters in place. I didn’t even bother to do anything with the wood, so it’s quite natural and raw looking.
Reusing the sticks from my Winter/Christmas mantel, I attached some cute hearts from DCWV which I found on clearance at Target. They are actually supposed to go on the wall. I wrapped a glass vase in the same gold mesh I used on the pallet sign and added some letters, and a burlap wrap. The 2 14 numbers are from last year.
A burlap bow, some greens, and a strand of glittery hearts dress up the mirror. Good thing my kitchen was actually clean when I took these!
