My {SWEET} Valentines Mantle

I don’t know about any of you, but I am ready for Spring.  I am ready for the fresh bright colors and punchy patterns.  Decorating in the Winter has always been a challenge for me because it is so dull.  After I took down the Christmas decor, my house looked sparse and I kind of liked it…BUT it was really lacking anything interesting.

Until the boys and I made a trip to Dollar General a few weeks back and I spotted these hot pink doilies.  It’s not often I have the opportunity to decorate with pink, especially HOT pink!  These cute little doilies got my creative brain spinning and I came up with a way to incorporate the bold fun Spring colors into my dull Winter decor.

Check out my {SWEET} mantle…

How cool is the Giant “K” I received for Christmas?!  It goes great with our wall of doors…I created the chevron canvas, doily heart garland and cupcake liner garland to add a bit of fun and whimsy.  I’ll be sharing how I made them soon!  The red vase is from my Fiestaware collection and small parfait glass was my grandmothers.  I scavenged the yarn balls and vintage ball fringe from my craft room.  The more I look at it in the space, the more I am loving it!

Here’s a close-up of the doily garland…Click here and here to see how I made them!

And my DIY Chevron Canvas

This reminds me of a strawberry ice cream sundae…Maybe I’ll add a red puff ball on the top! Yum!

    This rocks! Your big K caught my attention first- I recently bought a huge, cardboard-like monogram and have wondered just how to paint or cover it- I’d love to paint it to mimic this!
