Here are the two free printables that are framed on my Valentine’s Day mantel.

Thank you to Kristin at Betty Crocker Wannabe for posting the 1 Corinthians 13/Love free Valentine’s printable. You can visit her blog to get your own copy of this printable HERE.

The photo of the couple with the red umbrella was a photobucket find. I just typed in red umbrella, copied the photo, pasted it into a word doc (or you can use Paint), then printed it out.

More on this Valentine’s Day mantel project tomorrow. Until then…

Have fun!


Valentine’s Day Mantel 2013


Today I would like to share my Valentine’s Day Mantel. The mantel features DIY crafts including a coffee filter wreath, an XOXO garland, two framed printables, and one decorated vase.  I will provide short tutorials or links for the projects and free printables over the next few days. However, in case you are ready to get started with your mantel right away, I will give you a brief rundown of the decorations. The wreath is made from tea stained coffee filters then stuffed into a straw wreath. The garland is created from free printable letters I found on the internet with my own simple touches added. The frames are filled with two free printables and the vase is created by wrapping a mason jar with paper and adorned with some ribbon.

Hello and welcome to Maddy’s Closet. You never know what you will find in Maddy’s Closet, but at first we will be concentrating on things close to my heart and things that I spend my time doing weekly, if not daily. Those things are crafting, DIY home projects and saving money. As a mom of two teenagers, I need all the help I can get saving money and ways I do that include making my home beautiful with homemade projects and using as many coupons and coupon codes I can find. I hope that I can inspire you to create something lovely for your home or for a friend. If you are not the craft type, you can still look around at all the ways you can save a lot of money on things you need. Please feel free to comment, ask questions, and share this information. Grab your cup of tea and lets get started!!
