DIY Valentine's day mantel with love art

Thank you so much for your generous comments on my last post.   As promised, the PB Inspired LOVE Wall Plaque is now adorning my fireplace.  

Love art to decorate the mantel or walls

With the plaque up there, it was time to spruce up the mantel.  Something good about Valentine decorating is that you can re-purpose many of your Christmas decorations.  The pom pom garlands were an after season find at Michael’s, I only found three, there are only white pom poms on them, the biggest ones.  The little banners were made with the left over parchment paper that was used to wrap little presents during the Holidays.

Some extra pom poms were also attached.

A message in a bottle was written for the three people I love the most 😉

Plain white paper was given a nicer shape and three acrostic poems were written.

I got two Love Potions No. 9. Let’s see if I start kissing everything 🙂

Well, the true story behind those bottles is that they were closing up a Crate and Barrel store, everything was on sale, stands, props, merchandise, everything. They had a huge assortment of bottles, empty bottles that they used as props, I bought 3 of the red ones, some whites and some greens (they were only 25 cents a piece).  I really love the red ones, they are so vibrant!  So, for my love potions I simply use acrylic paint to write the letters on the side.

The winter white wreath I used during my Blue Christmas is now adorned with some red accents.

And a quick and easy pillow in the same polka-red fabric of the letter O, brings color to that chair.
