The only thing we decorate around this time of year is our mantel. I like to give it a little bit of Valentine love. I will also hang a wreath or sweet garland outside on our front porch. This year, I showed you a couple of DIY projects. I made simple mason jars as well as a DIY pom pom garland and used them both on our mantel. I took everything else down from the space and kept it really really simple. I also created a printable in order to vary the height of the items. You can really use items from around the house to create a similar look.
Our family LOVES The Lumineers song, “Ho Hey” so I thought it would be perfect for this Valentine’s Day mantel. We pretty much turn it up as load as possible when it comes on in the car and rock out. Good times.
And instead of opening my frame and replacing the current artwork, I took the silver and white washi tape used on the mason jar and stuck a little piece on each corner. DONE! Love things that are quick and simple. And temporary.
I like the clean and simple look of this year’s mantel. What about you? Do you doll your place up for Valentine’s Day or skip right past it? I would be curious to know. We will be spending the rest of the week working on some Pinterest inspired valentines. If you follow me over there, than I am sure you have seen them!
