Valentine’s Mantle

If you’ve been following along here for a while, you know that I recently put a floating shelf in over the TV in our living room and have been using it as a faux mantle for displaying holiday decorations. Its brought a lot of cheer to our living room! You can see previous Halloween and Christmas versions here and here. Here’s this month’s Valentine’s edition:

DIY Valentines Decor

Since almost everything was free or previously owned, it only really
cost me a total of $4! Here’s a source list roughly from left to right:

  • Heart candle: Ikea $3
  • Candle stand: Hobby Lobby $4
  • Red candle stick: Goodwill $1
  • Tea lights: Ikea (with various washi tape) $1/99
  • Black frames: Ikea $2 each
  • Red frame: garage sale $1
  • Robot print: (but I picked it up at Renegade Craft Fair in Austin) $10
  • Paint chip heart art (and hearts on other frame): see tutorial here! $free
  • White vase: Ikea $2 – I have had three of these in different textures for years and love them! Looks like ikea doesn’t carry them anymore, though.
  • Red berries: Hobby Lobby $1
  • Heart jar: see tutorial here! $free
  • Heart Garland: see tutorial here! $4

I’ll be adding tutorials for a few of the projects over the next couple days (still before Valentine’s day, and they’re all quick projects!), and will update the links above as they’re available.
