Friday Faves...Free and Easy Valentine Mantel

As I'm reading Marie Kondo's, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and donating carloads of clothes and decorations and such to the Salvation Army, it didn't make sense for me to go out and buy more seasonal decorations, just so I could have something new for Valentine's decorating.  
So, I challenged myself to use things I already had.
 I used a heart shaped hole punch on a piece of thin cardboard, made dots around the edges with a chalk pin, then used an embroidery needle and string so they could be hung from this branch.
My granddaughters bought me this heart shaped box for my birthday.
I'm glad I thought to get it from my bedroom and add it to my mantel.
It goes perfectly with the other decorations.

 I stenciled L-O-V-E and X-O onto some wrapping paper and put them in frames I already had.
Quick, easy, and free!

Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
I hope you have a 
a SAFE and BLESSED weekend!

  6. Love your simple decorations. Not sure I'm going to do any Valentine's Day decorating this year. My house is all torn up as we've begun kitchen renovations. You always inspire me!
