Decorating a Valentine Mantle

20 Minutes
When decorating my mantle I always contemplate symmetry. I usually revert back to it by the time I have a finished product! I love how the red pops against the white. I used this shelf after i painted it "pure white" with chalk paint, as my mantle. Added a simple banner from Then added Pottery Barn's candle sconces to give it symmetric look.
Added little jar vases from Target dollar spot for a nice added feature.

I used some wrapping paper turned inside out and wrapped a few books I had laying around. I finished it with one simple piece of ribbon to tie in a little color. I searched online to find a printable to use in my frame to draw in the pattern of polka dots. Not sure what it is lately about polka dots, but I'm in love!
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Don't wait until Valentines to show your love, express it each day! For this is the day that the Lord has made!
