Valentine's mantel reveal

I finally got my garland finished and hung on the mantel this past weekend, so now I can finally reveal the whole mantel to you. Every project seems to be done just a few minutes here and a few minutes there, so it takes me a while.

On the left I used my heart specimen art, plate, and one of the rose balls from last year.

On the right side I used the framed fuzzy heart, and the same books and candle holders you saw in my everyday mantel. I swapped out the bean filler for some red foam filler from Dollar Tree.

I made two garlands. One is made with heart doilies topped with punched hearts. I inked the edges of the punched hearts to make them "pop" a little more. The other garland is made with pom poms. The pom pom garland is easy to do. Just thread some dental floss on a needle and run it through the pom poms.

I like this year's version of the mantel better than last years. Do  you decorate your mantel for Valentine's Day? This is only my second time.
