silver metal tray was just not doing it for me…I tried a dough bowl but…still to dark looking.
I had to take these photos after dark because I watched the girls and also had to finish this project!
Finally learned how to take the yellow out of the pics…thank you Pic Monkey!
Here is the mantle when I first did it and I did try to shop my home but just couldn’t find anything that I liked! Then I thought about Valentine’s Day and how it will be here in less than a month and right away I got on Pinterest, because I knew I had pinned something the other day that I wanted to try and make.
Isn’t it adorable? Sara from Cozy. Cottage. Cute. made this for her hubby and she put a lot of thought into it, me, not so much! When I went to buy a heart punch I couldn’t find a one in my area, JoAnn’s was all sold out and only had one left but the heart on it was teeny tiny. So at the Dollar Tree I grabbed a bag of heart stickers to trace around and cut out the hearts from a DT book. Looking at Sara’s I know I didn’t want to cut out all those hearts so I used this frame that I already had and knew I'd only have to cut out a few, which made me happy!
I think it is just what the mantel needed, seems to give it some balance now don’t you think?
If you want to see some talent and the sweetest baby (Cooper) and his nursery visit Sara’s Cozy. Cottage. Cute.
I’ll be joining these parties:
