Valentine Mantel 2015

I always hate taking down my Christmas decorations. Especially from my mantel. Christmas seems to come  around so quickly, and then it seems that as soon as you put out the decorations, it's time to take them down again. 
The good part about taking down the Christmas decor, is that I get to decorate for Valentine's Day.

I don't go crazy decorating for holidays (other than Christmas) and seasons but I do like to decorate my mantel. It's the focal point of the room so it's fun to change it up.
I made the banner a couple of years ago. You can see how I made it HERE.
This year I tried string art for the first time when I created this heart. I hammered in the nails, but my daughter took over and did the fun part!


I also created this mixed media heart art...
I'll be sharing the tutorial for it soon.
How about you? Do you decorate for special occasions other than Christmas?

  5. Your mantel is lovely! I've never tried string-art, but just saw a fabulous piece at an art museum. Yours makes me want to give it a go! Still love that banner too!

  6. Gorgeous! And I think the string art is beyond fabulous. I know what you mean about after Christmas. Valentine's is the perfect follow up, because a little decor goes a long way. Jane

  7. Cute mantle Virginia. I have always decorated for holidays. The only one that I have given up is St. Patty's Day. I figure I need to dust, so why not redecorate? lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
