My Valentine mantel needed one more bit of bling, so I made a fabric covered heart that was nearly free since I had all of the supplies on hand.
To make this, I traced a heart on cardboard, cut it out, and then spray painted one side pink to match my fabrics.
The heart looked like it needed just a bit more bling, so I searched my inherited sewing stash and found some white nylon trim strips, perfect to make a ruffled edge. (I think that my mother-in-law intended to use these for t-shirts.)
This is definitely the most feminine mantel I’ve ever done and I love it! Bring on the pink and the ruffles!
