Make your own Valentine’s Day Art

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to decorate! This year, I decided to create some art for the mantle. {You can check out last year’s mantle here.}


Valentine's Day Mantle Art


Here’s what I did.

1. I painted a large canvas with a heart and stripes. {Tutorial posted below.}

2. To incorporate my built in shelves, I painted another canvas peacock blue with a cursive love.

3. The X and O were purchased at Hobby Lobby for around $3.00 total. I added a little paint and voilá.

4. All the other decor items are things I already had.

1.Trace a heart onto your canvas. I printed this template and enlarged it.

3. After the heart is dry, tape off your stripes. My stripes are 2½” wide.
