NEUTRAL VALENTINE’S DAY MANTEL

Hi! Thank you for visiting. I wanted to share my Neutral Valentine’s Day Mantel with you. While I don’t decorate as much for Valentine’s Day as other Holidays, I definitely like to update the Mantel for each Holiday and Season. I tried something different this year and decided to go with non traditional colors for Valentine’s Day. Because I have an open floor plan and decorate with a lot of neutral colors, with pops of blue, I just wasn’t feeling red, although I do love the color.

When decorating my Mantel I normally start with an inspiration piece and build from there. I found this great picture at Hobby Lobby on clearance.

I loved the gold design, which was very different for me. I thought it would be the perfect size to hang on the mirror above the mantel and at $7.00, it was a steal!  If you are new to Our Crafty Mom you will see that I love to use both sides of everything, as shown in this no sew canvas pillow. I made another one with amour  on one side-perfect in gold-and the snowman from my Winter Mantel on the other side. This is a low cost way to have Seasonal pillows and also takes up less storage.

I like symmetry on the Mantel, so usually have the same item, or at least the same size item on each side of the Mantel to anchor it. I kept the glass vases that I used in my Winter Mantel, simply adding white hearts to the stems with glue dots. I then created large heart shaped topiaries for each side as well. These were very simple to make using batting and  white felt sheets which I cut into a heart shape. I did add some cardboard in between to give it some weight. I used sponge daubers-which I love-and gold acrylic paint to stamp circles on the hearts, keeping with the gold theme.

Have I mentioned how much I love Target? Their dollar spot is amazing, especially for Seasonal items. I scooped up this adorable gold sequin XO the minute I saw it because-hello, it’s sequin! I knew it would be perfect on the mantel. The beautiful banner is also from the dollar spot. There you have it, some quick, inexpensive, fun ways to decorate a neutral Valentine’s Day mantel.
