Ombre Valentine Decoration

I've never attempted to make anything with the ombre look before. I was trying to come up with a filler for a large glass container for my Valentine's mantel. I went in search of something to use in my craft stash.  I found some paper shred in many shades of pink and I decided to layer the paper in the container to make an ombre look. It's simple and sweet.



I am going to be sharing many of my mantel project ideas over the next few posts. Thanks for stopping by!  I purchased most of this from the Dollar Tree over the past few months.
