Valentine Mantel and Heart Hang Tags

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

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

DIY Project Valentine Mantel .

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.

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