I am posting for my Mantel Party a few days early in hopes of spreading the word and having more join us this Thursday night-Saturday. Check out the button on my sidebar if you are interested.
This mantel was so much fun and super easy to create! I started by placing the sticks I used in my 3 little birds mantel into a more fitting vase. Then, using the tags I purchased from Target’s dollar spot, I simply strung them to the tree with some clearance heart ribbon I had in the craft closet.
The little frames were also purchased, ages ago, from Target’s dollar spot. I used some square tags inside the frames and printed the “I love you” on my computer.
Isn’t the LOVE sign cute?
Here is a closer look at some of the tags. I used vellum stickers on the blank tags and pictures of my sweethearts in the circle tags. Do you see the yummyness in the bottom of the hurricanes? Do you think my two little boys will be able to resist climbing up there and trying to eat those M&M’s? Hmmmm. Neither do I. The M&M’s might need to go after today.
Here is a better look at my sweethearts.
I found this free printable Tricia Rennae banner via Design Dazzle . I printed the banner out and adhered it to some polka-dot scrapbook paper. I then punched holes in the corners with a hole punch and secured the triangles with bits of heart ribbon.
I love the way it turned out.
I heart you too, cute Valentine’s mantel!
And here is what my mantel looks like all moody and glowy and lovely.
One more thing, for those of you who saw my candy dispenser transformation yesterday…
…I’ll have you know that it is now happily holding M&M’s in place of those Smarties. It looks so cute that I almost don’t want to eat them all. I said almost.
