Have I mentioned I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s decor (or Easter, or 4th of July…)? I can fit all the decorations I have for each of those holidays in one box. Probably a shoe box.
But my kids like it so I try to make the best of it and put a couple of things up to make them happy.
Turns out it kinda made me happy too!
When it comes to decor, I like things pretty simple. And easy. Easy is good.
So after stringing up my burlap heart garland, I decided to take down the Christmas wreath (don’t worry, I still have one on my front door) and add a couple of things to prettify the mantel. (Sidenote – I’m totally surprised that “prettify” is a word. I kind of liked thinking I made it up. “Sidenote,” however, is not).
I enlarged the chalkboard printable (get it here) to 11″ x 14″, put it in a white frame, and set it next to the canvas.
The whole mantel took me five minutes to pull together.
See, even if you’re not one to decorate for Valentine’s Day, with a few supplies you can pull together this simple mantel.
Take a photo of your kids, add a cute printable and a simple garland, and you’re done. Cheap, simple and easy, just like me!
Wait, that didn’t come out right…
