This is our normal everyday mantel. Simple and clean (boring) I kept seeing cute little Valentine's day decor and decided to make my mantel my new holiday display. I don't have much stuff so I made a few things and pulled the other things out of storage to create a fun little mantel that I LOVE for Valentine's month. Here is the after
Here are the few things I did to get the look. First I used glue dots to add the love to the glass on my frame. They will come right off after I am done and I tucked the ribbon on the edge to make it look like it is hanging even though it isn't. I had 3 empty frames that I decided to make some little art projects for. The first I used a patterned background paper, cut out some x's and o's and threw it in the frame.

I also decided to step out of the phone age and use my real camera. Aren't the pictures so much better? Well Happy Valentine's month. Make something fun and enjoy your home for the holiday.
