L-O-V-E {Valentine’s Day Mantel}

Holy wow. Did y’all see the Super Bowl last night? I’m still in shock! Anywho…who’s ready for a little Valentine fun? :)

I love decorating for Valentine’s day! It’s not that I ever had a great heart day track record before meeting my husband. My one high school boyfriend brought me a Costco tub of bubble gum. So, there was that. There’s just something about cute little pink and red hearts that brings a smile to my face. :)

A few favorite Instagrams of my sweetie and I are clipped to the wire with mini clothes pins. I Valentine-sed the clips up with a bit of festive washi tape {from Michael’s}. I had the photos printed through Printstagram. This has by far been my favorite source for Instagram prints. They’re a great quality and they have a variety of printing options.

Easy Valentine Garland

Good morning, y’all! And happy MLK day! I have the easiest Valentine craft to share with you all today. I mean EA-SY. Even those of you who don’t deem yourselves the crafty type can do this with no problem.

All you need is a package of some paper, heart-shaped doilies and some twine. I used my red baker’s twine from Pick Your Plum.

All you need to do is string the twine through the doilies. I told you it’s easy! {You can ignore the red paint on my fingers. I was a crafting fool this past weekend}. Less than $2, less than 5 minutes…you can’t go wrong here!

I hung my first garland on the mirror in my entry way. I’ll probably make a few more to string here and there to add happy Love day touches throughout the house.

I love these little doilies. They remind me of homemade valentines that we would make in elementary school. It’s the symbol of a simpler time. Construction paper, glue sticks, and paper doilies. Those were good days! :)
