My Valentine’s Mantel

Since starting my blog, I have been so inspired by all of the different holiday decor I have seen, especially on Pinterest.  I used to keep my mantel the same all year round, but I have been having so much fun decorating for the holidays, that I can hardly wait from one to the next to change it up!  So, this is my Valentine’s Day mantel…
I took the picture out of the frame that usually hangs above my mantel and rolled it up for safe keeping.  I then cut the Love is… out of vinyl on my Cricut machine and adhered it to the front of the glass.  {The vinyl will come right off after the holiday.}  Then I made a small banner out of some cute paper that I found at Michael’s.  {Also using my Cricut}  I had the ivy plant, and just used some floral wire to shape it into a round topiary…I love it so much, that I think I will keep it this way.  The small frame on the right is an extra one that I had in my garage.  I simply took the picture out, painted it white, strung jute string in a zig zag pattern, then clipped some sweet heart cut-outs on the line.

I think I am really getting a knack for making new things out of the old things that I have around my house…home has become my favorite hunting ground!  Sometimes it just takes a little inspiration, like a picture in a magazine or something you see on Pinterest to make you realize that everything you need may just be right under your nose!

Keep it real!
