My Valentine Mantle

So Christmas is officially over now and put away. The house looks so bare and lonely. The good news is, it’s on to Valentines day! I love, love! So first thing I needed to do was get my mantle decorated.

I finally made a sheet music wreath!! It’s been on my “to do” list for awhile now, I think it turned out pretty good! I did two layers of sheet music cones and tied it to an empty picture frame with some cream ribbon.

I stuck with black, white, and pink for my colors. There’s just something very soothing, beautiful, and romantic about these colors together for me. I imagine the sheet music is covered with sweet love songs.

I love angels! I bought these two little angels at Michael’s last year sometime and I love them!
Finished things off with some pretty pink flowers and a cute box. “Love. Two hearts. One love” Sappy I know, what can I say? I love, love!!!

So now I’m off to work on some more V-day projects!!!

Linking up to these great link parties!!!

& here:


  1. Looks great. I love that box, at first I thought it was a plaque or wood block. Great job on the wreath. I have yet to make one. I’m waiting until after the long weekend before I pull out my V-day decor.

  2. Nice job! Thanks for the inspiration:)

  3. Looks great. How did you do the sheet music? I’m musical by nature (piano, clarinet) & I’ve thought about doing something w/ my childhood sheet music. I didn’t poke around the blog to see if you shared how, if so, just send me in the right direction! =) Long weekend!? What long weekend?? MLK?

  4. Your mantle looks great. I love black,white and pink together too!

  5. Hello! I just recently found your blog and I love your projects. I have booked a few of them to share this year (some autumn and Christmas ideas) and will link back to you and credit you. If that is a problem, just let me know. I’m sure looking forward to reading your blog this year.
