heart decorations!

i wrote about all the beautiful valentine images that are inspiring me right now, so here are the ways i incorporated some of them into our decor & celebration this year!

i lost our great big mantle when we moved, so this little crown molding shelf in our dining room is where i do our seasonal decorating. i actually love how clean & simple it turned out for a little valentine love!
 i kept it simple [& cheap!] by using mason jars, paper doilies & some red baker's twine. the foam glitter heart was from hobby lobby with a 40% coupon & the felt hearts were actually christmas decor that i bought super cheap after christmas from target one year!




the dining room window got a little love too with a felt & burlap heart garland that was $2.50 at target this year. i love it!
 it's the kind of thing i definitely could have made, but for $2.50 it was much wiser for me to just buy it & not add another unfinished project to the stack- i'm trying to be better about that. the felt is a little stiff so it keeps  its shape & the 'burlap' is actually unbleached cotton that has a bit of a see through look when hung on the window:
our kitchen chalkboard also got a new verse & i tried out the chalk pen i got for christmas. it will take some practice i'm sure, but we love having scripture right there where we see it all day, every day.

 
what is your favorite thing about love/heart decorations? did you do something unusual this year? i think next year i might try a different color scheme, like this green/orange/teal mantle along with the traditional red & pink:
