I look forward to each changing season, holiday and special occasion, because it means I get to redecorate! And I love redecorating! I especially love to do our mantel, because it is the focal point of our living space. With Valentines Day just around the corner, I have been trying to think of new ways to spice up our space.
So I went searching and found some loveliness! I found a wreath at the blog Buggie and Jellybean, that took my breath away! (I know, it’s shocking that I found a wreath I love, what with my wreath addiction and all!) I absolutely loved the colours and the yarn balls. I have a thing for yarn balls. I’ve used them on my Christmas wreath, and I also just used white ones as snowballs on my Winter Mantel. I ran with the inspiration, and decided to take my own twist to it, and create a Valentine Yarn Ball Garland for my mantel. I really like how it turned out!
Now, I know that my mantel looks bare, but keep in mind that this is only the first stage of my Valentines Mantel Reveal!
