Valentine's Mantle

A side view. A bottom view is at the bottom of these pictures...cleaver huh??
I bought these cheap wooden frames at Target in the $1 section and painted them white. Then, I just printed words on my printer and put them in the frames. The Love sign and the hot pink beads were actually Christmas decorations...90% off at Kohls. I think the beads were 29 cents and the Love "ornament" was 99 cents.
The frame on the far left and far right were from Michaels, unfinished, for $1. I just bought cute scrapbook paper and glued it on. I bought the heart frame last yeat at a garage sale for 50 cents and the white frame was a weird turquoise color, from Joann's $1, that I painted white and added ribbon. Easy!
Nathan made this frame for me for Mother's Day when he was in Preschool, it goes perfectly into this mix. I love it so much, that it is usually on my mantle always.
I change my mantle with the holidays...so these are pictures for Valentine's Day. In years past, I have used mostly red for this month, but this year changed to hot pink, pink, and white. I mostly just repainted and covered with scrapbook paper what I already had. I love the way it turned out...pictures of my favorite people in the Whole World.
