Valentine Mantel

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!
