A love-ly Valentine’s Mantel

February is here! Although I might not be big on teddy bears and the color red, I certainly like decorating for Valentine’s Day. This year, I wanted to shake things up a bit and put a big, hot pink heart over my fireplace. Armed with my weekly Michael’s 40% off coupon, I bought a canvas and some Martha Stewart “Pink Dahlia” acrylic craft paint. I was feeling particularly lazy at the time, so I just free-handed the heart. It’s a little imperfect, but so is love sometimes, right?! Really easy and really cute. My kind of DIY. I grabbed a few pink roses at Trader Joe’s and gathered items I had around the house. I found this free ampersandprintable and printed it at home. I love how it turned out.
