Fireplace Mantle: February

It is the Month of Love!
The mantle is up! I get excited every month that I get to decorate. This month is is all about pink, red and white.
I moved the mirror to the wall above the fireplace. I think it looks great. (Now I have a naked wall I get to decorate!)
 I found this idea here. My letters are a little crooked but for my first big Silhouette project I am happy with it.
 I love Styrofoam wreath forms. No gluing required. This is covered with fuzzy red fabric and pinned with satin pins. The love sign I found at Michael's craft for $1. I just added some red dots and BAM prettiness!
 Another Michael's for a buck find was this wooden heart frame. I painted it ballet shoe pink (Krylon spray paint). The scrapbook paper I cut a little big so that it would poof out in the front. I don't think you can really tell in the picture. 
 Can you really go wrong with candy? I E6000 glued the small jar to a candlestick. I love straight vases. Add candy and the hardest thing to do is not eat it all. See the little red stick pins? I didn't know how to keep the heart bunting up. I tied a cute bow and pinned it with red stick pins. Luckily the mantle is tough enough to handle the tiny hole.
 These are the same tree forms from the January mantle. I just covered them with yarn. It took 2 layers. A little bit of girly lace and some red ribbon and you got it!
The bunting idea I also found here. This was my favorite party to make. Thank you Landee for letting me copy craft you.
Hope you enjoy the mantle. 
Happy Heart Day!!
