Valentine's Day Mantel

Many of the projects I have shared over the past few posts are now in a new spot on my mantle. The fall mantel I did was the first time I ever decorated my mantel for anything besides Christmas. I have been encouraged to decorate it more now that we are spending more time in this room. Plus I think think the colors of Valentine's Day make me smile.  

Here are my Valentine's trees and my mason jar wrapped in jute with a paper heart. I have seen a lot of these mason jars decorated on Pinterest. It was a quick and easy addition to the mantel.
My felt heart bouquet and ombre jar are on the other end of the mantel.
Here is my chalkboard frame sign hanging in the middle.  It's my favorite part.

Thank you for checking out my mantel. I added some pom yarn hanging from the top to break up all the brick I wish Rob would let me paint.. :)
