Valentine Mantel featuring Heart Shaped Dyed Coffee Filter Wreath, LOVE chalkboard Canvases, Fun Hearts Garland and Giant Letter W!  Love is in the air…

And snow is on the ground. Finally!

I know some of you bold ones farther south have had your fair share, but up here in the Commonwealth, we’ve been just a bit deprived!

But today, it’s coming down and I LOVERS it!

So, I was going to chat with you about how I met Morgan and how he proposed to me on one knee and how I was in my bathrobe and still had a towel on my head…

But since I’m distracted by the snow coming down outside my newly updated office windows… {eek! I can’t wait to show you my office!} Unless of course you follow me on Instagram and then you might have seen the sneakity-peakity.

I am, however, going to take you on a tour of my very-first-ever-in-my-whole-entire-lifetime Valentine Mantel, yoz.

Wait a sec while I look out the window and sip my new favorite tea…

Ok. Now we can go ahead.

First I made this sweet little Fun Hearts Garland!  {you can visit that link and grab the free Fun Hearts Printable!}

It was super easy to put together.

Then I made this awesome Coffee Filter Wreath.  I showed you:

How to dye the coffee filters

and How to make the coffee filter flowers

and, finally How to make the Easiest, Cheapest Heart Wreath Form on the planet!

Then I put together these fun Chalkboard Canvases and used the Chalk Transfer Method to write L O V E on them.

I Lovers them…

LOVE Chalkboard Canvases

I hung the wreath on top of my Giant W where I showed you:

How to Create a White Textured Pattern Using Only Paint!

Giant Letter W-5

I added some of my favorite black and white pictures below the W.  These were taken right before we leaped the pond and spent a year in Switzerland.

Now, talk about snow… beautiful to see it cover the Alps out your back window!

So, how did I do for my very first time with a Valentine Mantle?  I know I could use some candles in those holders, but oh wellz.

Are you ready for Valentines Day?  {I am…not!}
