Valentine Mantel 2012 #2!

 This is my second post for today, continue to scroll down for the first one!
I finished my Valentine mantel in the craft cottage! I kept it pretty simple. I had purchased the twig heart on a recent craft trip and wanted to dress it up a bit. I added some felt flowers with button centers. Lots of tutorials in blogland... I didn't follow one in particular, just pulled out my glue gun and cut the felt that was already out.
 I made the heart garland in about 10 minutes! So easy... again quite a few tutorials out there... just grabbed my mini stapler and some strips of red and white paper. I would have liked to make these out of felt, maybe next year!

 This frame had the glass break... I added some $.99 letters from Target right onto the pressed board backing, then added a glittered heart.
Considering it will be changing again in a couple weeks, I am going to call it done!

Linking to this linky party!
Tomorrow I am taking you for a walk through the yard, the birds are chirping the frogs are croaking! Spring must be close!
