A Mantel a Month: February Valentine's Day Mantel

I'm continuing my "Mantel a Month" series with a February Valentine's Day mantel. This was a lot of fun to put together and it brings some nice pops of color into my otherwise neutral living room.

If you've been reading my blog this month, you've probably seen some of these projects (Valentine's Day Heart Art and Valentine's Day Tissue Paper Heart). I'm happy with how it all came together on my mantel.

What's on my mantel in February
Above the mantel: Valentine's Day Tissue Paper Heart. Click here for the tutorial.

Far left: Candle and candleholder, heart picture painted by my little guy, and red vase from last Valentine's Day.

Center: The little guy's first Valentine's Day picture and three small red vases that I painted using this technique.

Far right: Valentine's Day Heart art (click here for the tutorial). Candle and candleholder.

Each end of the mantel: Red heart Christmas ornaments.

Below the mantel: I used two rows of garland. The larger, open hearts are from Michaels. The smaller, red hearts are from the Dollar Tree.

What do you think about how it all came together? Feel free to link up any of your Valentine's Day mantels in the comments sections. I'd love to check out your mantels!
