My poor Mantel has suffered from neglect.
After I stripped it from Christmas it sat empty.
Then things started to get piled on it.
I am serious it did.
That got rectified real quick.
Now since Valentine's Day is around the corner
And Beth is going to have one of her Mantel Link Parties
I need to get moving.
Problem is I can't find my Valentine Decorations.
And I am not sure if the made the move or not.
So back to square one with nothing in the budget.
Thankfully my craft supplies are getting organized
As I create my New Creative Space
So we need to create new Valentine Decorations.
After looking all over Pinterest
I have some ideas.
Yeah I have a problem with collecting paint chips.
Somedays when I need to get out of the house without the 5 year old I go to Lowe's or Home Depot and raid their paint chips.
It's what I call my "Mommy Escape"
It's that or the fabric store.
The paint chips cost less.
Seriously it took my glue gun longer to heat up than do this.
Paint chips (the long skinny ones)
Baker's Twines (string, thread, ribbon)
Heart Buttons (from JoAnn Fabrics )
Fold and Cut ends of Paint Chips
Fold over the Baker's Twine and Glue/Tape
Add Buttons and Hang up
Hanging out with my Friends........
