I have to tell you that I don't usually do any decorating for Valentine's Day.
But this year I was feeling pretty inspired by all the pretty mantels I've been seeing.
Small problem. I don't have a mantel.
Bah! That can't stop me!
So I started looking around our house. When I got to the piano, I stopped. It's deeper than a mantel top, but our antique piano has plenty of space to do a vignette.
Off I went.
Another problem. After looking around, I found almost nothing to use for my desired Valentine vignette. I had red books, a pink candle, & the felt "Love" sign I had purchased at a dollar store a couple of years ago.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on this display since it's not up for very long, so I started to create.
I went & bought some bulk Valentine candy & displayed them in clear jars.
The button stash came out & I made a little button heart, mounted it on some pink fabric, & displayed it in an embroidery hoop.
This old frame was hiding out under our guest bed.
I painted it white with some craft paint to go with the Valentine theme.
This paper heart garland was so easy to make! Paper, a paper cutter, & a stapler is all you need!
The idea came from The Wedding Chick's blog. Check out the link for the measurements & photo instructions.
My daughter is thrilled with this garland & is begging to have it in her room after Valentine's Day. :)
So... do you decorate for Valentine's Day? Do you decorate differently each year or the same each year?
Love day is getting ever closer! But hey, don't wait... share some love today!
Enjoy your day!
