Valentine's Day Mantle & Wreath

This year I decided to have fun decorating my house for my favorite holiday. How could I not with all the cute heart stuff I have been making. I will admit as soon as the Christmas stuff was out the banner was up. I slowly added a few more items to my mantle. I was inspired by one of my favorite blogs Craftaholics Anonymous. She always has such a fun themed mantle for each holiday. Here is my take.

 I had several candles on my mantle previously. I dressed them up with strips of patterned scrapbook paper and ribbon to match  my theme.
The xoxo frame is a free printable from the blog mentioned above. I was going to make my own subway art but this freebie saved me the time. Love the pop of color it adds.
The Kiss blocks were $1 at Target. The say Hugs, XOXO, and Love as well. Such a fun inexpensive addition.

Of course I included a 5M Creations Valentine's Day Love centerpiece in pink and red...

and a matching LOVE banner in pink and red. (and don't forget the boa...it filled in the space nicely)

To complete the look I added a vase of glittery hearts. I found these at my local craft store. A Valentine's Day take on my vase of ornaments at Christmas.  Plus a few more dressed up candles.
I love the overall look. It makes me smile every time I walk in the room.

The last touch I added to my home this year was a new wreath for the front door. This was also inspired by Craftaholics Anonymous. You can see her wreath here.  She has a tutorial to make rosettes on her site. Since I did not have a ruffler foot for my sering machine(or actually event know where my machine is) I decided to go the no sew option with some fun heart fabrics. Not exactly the look I was going for but a fun touch of color. 

The flowers are snapped on with alligator hair clips. I can swap them out for other colors for different seasons. Love this element. 

I had one more project I meant to complete this year but it will have to wait. I bought cute little mail boxes and candle sticks to paint for my kids Valentine's. It will give me something to make next year.

And this beauty in pink. Amazing how the craft stores were out of heart forms starting in January and did not get them back. :( I will be buying the next one I see to put away. I cannot wait for it to greet me next year.

Hope you had fun looking at all my heart goodies. They make me smile. I hope you smiled too.
