Valentine's Wreath and Mantle (On a Dime)

Hey there!  I am very excited to say that I have decorated for Valentine's Day!  I have never decorated for it before but being new to the Crafting world I have been inspired by my fellow bloggers and had to give it a go.  There was also something very nice about sitting around the table with my Crazies and crafting together instead of watching T.V. or whatever else wasting our time.  They are at that fun age where they want to help and get very creative on their own. 
So, for our 1st time I am very proud of us.  You will see quite the hodgepodge as we just used mostly what was on hand...seriously, like old t-shirts cut up for rosettes, a giant wreath I found at a junk store, cardboard turned into a chalkboard heart, construction paper hearts, crepe paper craziness, etc....

Giant wreath I some burlap, glitter hearts strung up in garland, rosettes from felt and t shirts, and a chalkboard heart...and there you go.

I am in need of some height on this mantle
but haven't found anything I love yet.


My 5 year old son (aka Skaterboy) made this for me, so of course it had to be in the middle. I love it!

Crepe paper rosettes glued onto to styro...time consuming, but love!

This is my little buffet area in dining...we had to put stuff here too.

Well, there you have it...our 1st decorated Valentines...I love the help I got from the kids.  I have to add my daughter (aka Diva) sat down at the table--wielding her 1st glue gun (pink of course) and said "watch out people, I have a glue gun and I'm not afraid to use it."  Got to love it!
