Simply Valentine's

I'm not a big one to get all into the different holidays.  I decorate for Fall and Christmas and that's about it.  But this year, I got sucked into Facebook and Pinterest.  Who doesn't?  LOL!  All the Valentine's stuff is so cute!  So, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do just a real quick, simple mantle.  Its nothing flashy and really, that's fine with me.  :D  But, it did turn out really cute for not a lot of work, so I thought I'd share.

I gathered up all my supplies:

Glass Vessels
Ribbon
Chipboard Letters
Glitter Scrapbook Paper
Felt
Buttons
Glitter
Spray Paint
Mod Podge
Computer Paper
White Card Stock
And some stray candy that the kids miraculously had stuck in my craft cabinet.  LOL!!! (Hey, it works!)


Y'all are some pretty smart people, so I'm sure you can figure out how I got from Point A to Point B, so I won't bore you with the details.  ;)

Here's the final result:


Like I said, very simple.

The felt rosettes are stuck to the glass with scotch tape, so I can reuse them.  In fact, these same glasses held my bleached bottle brush trees from Christmas.



The little fruit jar came from a last minute desperate attempt to fill space without blocking the bottom half of the banner.  It does the job until I can get somewhere to find something that fits.


Stuffed it with tissue paper and scotch taped the candy on it.  LOL!  Whatever, it works for now.  ;)

All in all, it pretty cute and Eva and Landon love it.  The boys...  Yeah, they made gagging noises.  LOL!


A little glitter and sparkle for Valentine's Day and I feel like I've done my duty for the season of love.  And that'll be as much pink as you'll ever see in my house because I'm definitely not the mushy type.  HA!


XOXO, :P
