Don’t ya just love an excuse to decorate your mantel. Mine is it’s soon to be Valentines Day and Beth @ Home Stories A to Z is having a Valentine Mantel linky party.
My mantel doesn’t change to much. Our flatscreen and speakers take up most of the space on the mantle and above the fireplace so I try to keep it pretty simple. Here it is…apologies for the bright light.
Here’s a closer look…
I took my winter mantel, and just a few updates. I re-wrapped the candles with some bright pink scrapbook paper. I left the greenery and white branches in the silver vases and added some heart shaped picks in pink and white that I picked up at the Dollar store. I also added those white picks with little white balls, so cute and only a 1.99 each in a after Christmas sale at Ace Hardware.
I also dressed up the glass table top that is to the right of the fireplace.
I had so much fun doing this frame. My neighbor’s in the frame business and gave it too me. I can’t find the original picture but it was gold. I spray painted it white, added a piece of scrapbook paper for the backing. The large heart came in a package of 4 at the Dollar store along with a package of pink heart stickers.
Did you notice the little box to the right of the picture frame?
It’s an old cigar box and I added a paint chip and some pink stickers. Simple and cute, right? The last item on the table is the candles vignette.
I hate to do this, but I’m going to save that story until Friday. You won’t believe how I came up with the white candle holder. To Be Continued…
Have you been decorating your mantel or other areas in your home for Valentines Day. What cha doing?
