Valentine's Day Mantle...

 I'm so excited to get to decorate my new "fake" mantle for a holiday!!  LOVE all the cheerful pink, red and white.  This mantle was way easy and CHEAP.  Cheap is my favorite next to pretty and easy!  All the decor was under $15!

This adorable Valentine subway art was a free printable from eighteen25.  Love.  It was designed to be an 11x14 but I wanted a 5x7 so I just printed it off and then stuck a little heart at the bottom to make up for the extra white space which was probably there in the first place because I didn't configure the printer right but whatever it's still cute.  Plus it gave me one more spot to use glitter.  Frame is one from the other side of the dining room that has been sadly waiting for a real picture for weeks.  The frame is happy now to be used.

This cute print is also a free printable.  Love free!  It's from less cake (more frosting) .  The little mailbox was maybe from Target or Michael's or somewhere that I've been in the last few weeks.  It was a dollar or maybe two.  I just hot glued some glitter foam hearts that I had laying around.  Because real crafters keep crap like that just sitting around.  It's how you know you have an addiction.

Heart garland.  LOVE this.  It was SO easy and is so cute.  I got the idea a few days ago from Living the Swell life.  I bought the heart punch from Michaels for $6 with 40% coupon.  The garland is super cheerful and maybe I'll leave it up forever.

The little flower pot tea holders are from Save on Crafts forever ago.  I just hot glued a little foam heart and made the little poof from felt.  Just kind of smushed the felt and then used hot glue to glue it to a foam ball.  

Hope you enjoyed my little Valentine tour!
