Our mantel was looking a little sad without it’s Christmas garb. I needed to fix that.
I just wasn’t feeling the Valentine’s Day mantel thing. Pink doesn’t fly so well with the husband. I am more into calming neutrals lately so red was out.
I’m also not a big Valentine’s Day fan. I’m not one of those that will dress in black and say things like “stupid Hallmark holiday”. It’s just not a day that we celebrate much in our house.
But that mantel. It was looking so boring. What to do? What to do?
I found a tutorial for yarn wrapped letters over at My Sister's Suitcase. Everyone is making yarn wrapper letters. I can totally do this.
Yarn letters are not fun. I am not good at making yarn letters. I will never make yarn letters again. At least not the letter “X” anyway. You win some. You lose some. The end.
Do you like my new sassy owl friend? I found her at Menards for $7. A sassy owl at Menards. Who would have thought? (Who. Owl. I kill me.) She looks flirty. Perfect for the upcoming holiday.
There you have it. My not a Valentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day mantel.
Are you a Valentine’s Day decorator? Do you think it’s weird that I have a bird phobia but love little sassy owls? Yeah, me too.
