Love My Valentine’s Mantel

26 Jan

I’m really happy with my mantel this year.  NOT that I didn’t love my mantel last year!!  But this year…I have a Silhouette (thanks again, Emily!!)!  I made the Love My Valentine’s bunting banner with the Silhouette.
Now, I have wanted to make a paper flower wreath like the famous Stephanie Lynn Paper Rose Wreath for over year now.  I FINALLY did it!!  With help from my Silhouette!  I never got around to cutting a zillion spirals from paper.  The Silhouette did it for me 6 at a time!!

Isn’t she amazing!!  I am in love!!  She looks great on the shutters, too.  I was going to take down the heart bunting but I kinda like it there with the wreath.

I added my Valentine ribbon candles which I made with Kassi of Truly Lovely’s tutorial.  The flowers are from my husband.  He gave them too me last week after he came back from a business trip.  It was so sweet.  And even sweeter that Alice kept looking at me with my flowers and saying “You’re getting married?”  I told her “I am married, I married your daddy”.  And she would giggle!!  Oh, those cute lil love bears are from the GW in AZ.  The Bless This Family Birds my husband picked out at Michael’s one night while I stood and stared at the beading aisle for an hour.

Red ceramic hearts are also from the GW in AZ.  The pretty wire candle holder I found 75% off at Bed Bath and Beyond a few weeks back.  It’s really pretty with a lit candle inside.  I love that it says Laugh and Dance at the bottom.  Makes me think of Alice.

I almost left my mantel like this, thinking it didn’t need a wreath.

Here is another before…

OH! And a before with a smiling “take my picture for your blog mommy!”….
Ya know, she plays on her kiddie laptop and says “I’m working on my blog” It’s TOO CUTE!!!

So, here is my Valentine’s Day Mantel!

Quick and Easy Christmas Decor

21 Dec

Oh my gosh!  I found a few minutes to do a post!!  PHEW!!!My friend Kassi had a great tutorial on a simple Christmas re-do.  She added Christmas ribbon to a regular pillar candle.  You can see her tutorial here! 
I followed her tutorial and turned a plain old candle in a pretty Christmas candle! 

 After I added the ribbon I noticed it was a bit crinkled.
So, I added a lil red glitter snowflake.  I also added a matching ribbon to the stand to dress it up a bit. 
So cute, right??


I love it!!  So easy and quick!!  Thanks Kassi for the tip! Truly Lovely
Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Ribbon Topiary

26 Sep

This cute little Halloween ribbon topiary is super easy to make!  I followed the tutorial here.   Found the cute Halloween ribbon here

I didn’t have as much ribbon as needed.  Which is why mine it’s a perfect little fluffy ball, BUT I still love it. I spray painted a little terracotta planter, some floral moss from the dollar store and a straw black.  Then hot glued my ball of ribbons onto the straw.  SO EASY!! 

Super cute right??
