Valentine Crafts!

Mantle decor: Mirror from Hobby Lobby, Heart wreath made by me, Candleholders from IKEA, heart candy dish from the Dollar Tree
Red felted heart wreath made by me, last year during the superbowl.  Tutorial here.
Entrytable / Chalkboard: branch swag I made. 
Milk glass compote found at an antique mall for under $1!!!  Fuzzy hearts from the Dollar Tree (sold as picks, I broke those off to make a  filler), doily table runner (bought a package of light pink paper heart doilies from the Dollar Tree and attached them together in a pattern using photo squares).
Paper rose wreath, made by me :)  Tutorial here.   It took a few nights sitting in front of the TV making this.  I used white cardstock I already had on hand (given to me free from my last job).

I have been very busy crafting all of these, but the mantle still seems bare to me.  Any ideas what else I could add (on a tight budget)?  Let me know what you think!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I LOVE both of these wreaths, I want to make both!

I tried to make roses out of crepe paper last night and that almost ended in tears, maybe I should try the cardstock!

Thank you Tamara! Definitely try the cardstock, but take your time! My fingers started feeling raw from the rolling, and had to take breaks from it.
