Valentine Mantel and Heart Hang Tags

Valentine's mantel

My Valentine mantel is a mixture of rusty hardware,
reclaimed wood and a lot of LOVE.

The ladder is handmade. You can read about it here.

The LOVE blocks are from Michaels.... adorable!

And the heart hang tags are painted on pieces of
antique wooden barrels. I cut the barrel pieces into
5" pieces and drilled a hole in the top. I gave them
a dry brush coat of white then painted red heart. 
The tag is waxed with dark wax.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I painted the LOVE printer's blocks black and I am loving them even more than when they were colors!
