After hanging up my simple, doily garland on our mantel, I felt like the area above it was looking extremely bare. There were quite a few of the heart doilies leftover, so I through around a few ideas in my head. Here's what I came up with! :)
I kind of made this up as I went, so bear with me! Here's what you'll need to get started:
*Silhouette, stencils or other crafty cutter
*Cardboard (I used an old cereal box)
I started off by cutting out a phrase on my Silhouette. I chose "Be Mine". After it had been cut, I traced them onto the sides of a cereal box. The letters on the cardstock were just too fragile for what I had in mind with them. After tracing, I cut the letters out of the cereal box.
I've had this frame for awhile now and use it as decor for many miscellaneous projects around my house. It's last use was for our Christmas Advent Calendar that I shared over on Huckleberry Love.
I removed the old twine, as there were four pieces and I only needed two. I used a staple gun to hold the new twine in place and simply tied a knot with the twine around the staple to hold it in place .
I felt like my sign was missing something, so I added this little guy. Jason bought him for me at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He is actually a Christmas ornament that is supposed to clip onto a tree branch. I loved him so much that I decided to keep him out year round. Isn't he the cutest?
And there you have it! A fun, colorful and easy project to brighten up your Valentine's Day décor.
I can't wait to share the rest of my mantel with you all! Thanks for stopping by. :)
