This year I was determined to add a little Valentines to my mantel. I saw this fantastic idea on pinterest and knew it was up my alley. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and wanted to use what I had around the house.
First, I made these heart beauties from some paint swatches. I was a little embarrassed by taking so many shades of red and pink from the store, but thought they wouldn't mind! I mean...they wouldn't have them out to take if they didn't want you to take them right?
I also found this Free Printable and decided to use an extra frame I had lying around the house.
The little red vases are from Crate & Barrel as a Christmas gift last winter.
My only purchase for this whole makeover was the metal X and O. I was at the mall last week and Restoration Hardware had 75% off everything in the store because they were moving locations! I was so pumped! These large metal letters are normally $69 each! CRAZY! I think I got both of them for like $30!
I brought a branch in from outside and added a few hearts......
Wait For IT......
Pretty awesome huh? I think it adds a little fun and of course LOVE to my livingroom!
I am really enjoying my mantel transformations over the past few months:
