After Christmas it felt so good to put everything away and not have so much clutter everywhere, so for Valentine's Day I decided to go pretty simple on the decor. Other than my mantel the only thing I really have out is a candy dish and I'm loving the simplicity.
I loved this felt leaf garland I made for my fall mantel, so I decided to do something similar for Valentine's Day.
I cut out a bunch of hearts in different sizes and shades of pink and strung them together using pink yarn. Once it was done though, I decided it looked cuter along the front of the mantel than if it was hanging down like a garland.
I've got the Great Purge of 2012 going on at my house right now, and as I was going through some boxes I found this adorable picture that I bought in high school when I worked at Hallmark. How perfect for Valentine's Day decor!
As you can see here and here, I love making things out of buttons. Sorry it's a little blurry, but I found this paper at JoAnn that says *I love you* all over it. Perfect.
First I printed *all you need is love* on the paper. It was 12x12 so I had to cut it down to 8.5x11 so it would go through the printer, then again to 8x10 to fit in the frame. Then I just glued buttons on to make the heart. I love it!
And...the song will now be stuck in your head all day too :)
