I made the Owl Word Art in PicMonkey. This is the version I used on my mantel -
I also made a vintage version that Leigh and I really loved.
But my mantel is just too white for it.
The vase on the end is a dollar store glass vase covered in twine and spray painted red. Then I just sat it on top of a glass candlestick. I think I need to add some flowers or maybe some branches painted white with hearts? I also used 2 iron trivets behind it along with a valentine candle that my Mom gave me.
The bottles in the middle are Starbucks Frappucino bottles. I spray painted them first and the coverage wasn't great. I think it was too cold in the garage along with the cheap spray paint. So I just used gesso on top of the spray paint and they have a nice matte finish. I made the letters in PicMonkey and glued them on top of 3" strips of scrapbook paper that I used a scalloped edge punch on. Topped them off with a little bakers twine that I scored at Target in the Dollar Spot and they were done!
Here are the letters in case you want to make your own -
Check back next week for the completed version. Still have 4 weeks until Valentines, so I have plenty of time for finishing touches.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
