Cupid Got Me! Valentine Decor-

Yay for Valentines Day! haha -I think I just like the colors and who isn't a sucker for love right? (and those candy hearts) Anyway, I wanted to do some simple decor inside and out and that is just what I did. I started with a little heart wreath and then moved on to the mantel. See below for instructions and then head over to the Good Eats tab to see my Pinterest inspired hot pink zebra valentines/girly cookies! Soo good!
-Happy Friday & Happy Crafting!

Grabbed a copy paper box from work and traced
a heart for the wreath. Painted it pink and with a nail
punched holes around the heart. Next I took fake flowers, cut them
down and stuck them through the holes, securing the other side. 

from the street it is so cute! Adds great color
to the blue door!


Next I got a styrofoam ball for a homemade pom pom with felt flowers.
I got about 12 sheets of felt .20 cents each, traced around a glass and cut out circles.


 Fold the circle half moon style

 then take each side and fold inward, overlapping and making a point on the bottom
(there are many ways to fold flowers, this is just the most simple!)


then have fun doing this about a million times! haha using the
pins to secure the flowers to the ball



Oh and I have to share: Seth bought me a TON of Scrabble
pieces because he knew I was looking for some for upcoming ideas
so I decided to incorporate them into the matel! (oh yes he did, love him) :)

Found an old wooden frame and cut out some
shabby chic looking scrapbook paper for the backing


decided I wanted a lighter frame so
I did some finger painting

yay! I am in love with this!



LaurenConrad.com gave me the idea for this cute little jar filled
with hearts and the hot glued penny Lucky In Love tag!

Some glitter and homemade bunting..


And there you have it, a spruced up lovey dovey mantel for Valentines Day!
Try to ignore my man TV...


I set the finished pom pom on a regualr glass, decorated some
paper white bulbs I had from Christmas (thanks mom) to add
some green to the mix! (the clothespins can be painted to add more color!)

another cute 'kiss' topped jar and more hearts!


Glittery Bunting!
