Last year, I repurposed my Christmas tree and decorations as a Valentine’s Day tree, and created an out-of-the-box display! This year, I made a simple Valentine mantel using pink and white accessories. Here’s how it turned out!
Valentine’s Day Mantel
The trick is to use items you already have. The ribbons were leftovers from the spring wreaths I made last year, and the ornaments were repurposed with a bit of spray paint. Apothecary jars and hurricanes are great to have on hand because they are timeless and can be filled with seasonal elements.
If you want something simple, you can reuse some Christmas balls by painting them white and pink. String them alongside some paper hearts and pink and white ribbons, and then drape the completed garland along your mantel.
Baubles and Glass Displays
Add height to the display using glass jars or hurricanes filled with more Christmas baubles. Here, I mixed a bit of tulle with battery-operated LED lights that I found in the Target dollar bin this fall, and then topped them with the baubles.
Pink and White Flowers
Give your mantel a fresh look by incorporating natural elements. I love buying affordable flowers and fillers such as baby’s breath and carnations. Not only are they lovely, they are affordable and last longer than roses. And I love to fill the house with flowers in February—it’s a great reminder that spring is around the corner! Finally, place some candles to complete the look!
