I absolutely love having a mantle. After years of living in an apartment without one, it’s taking me a while to realize just how versatile a mantle is for decorating! I’m totally digging it! As I was taking my Christmas decorations down, I decided that Valentine’s Day decorations should go up!
But wait… I didn’t have any Valentine’s Day decorations.
What’s a crafty girl to do? Make them of course!
$5 Valentine’s Day Apothecary Jars Fillers
I started by busting out the brand-spanking-new-and-shiny apothecary jars my mom got me for Christmas. I love them but wow are they a lot to fill! I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I went to Target and Walmart. SCORE! I found pink heart-shaped marshmallows ($2) and conversation hearts ($2) at Target. At Walmart, I found clearance Christmas paper shred for 70% off ($0.30). I added a paper rose I made on my Cricut Explore to the middle of the shred and voila, $5 Valentine’s Day Apothecary Jar Fillers!! What do you think??
DIY LOVE Wall Art
Then I just added some tea light candles and a little tin I found at Goodwill. The result? I LOVE it!!! I can’t wait to add more to it next year!!
