Valentine's Mantle

I love to decorate for Christmas, but I can't say that I do a lot of other seasonal decorating.
Between cooking, cleaning, teaching, and all those other mama things, I just don't have the time, energy, or money to make the house festive all year long.
Or, so I thought.
Then I stumbled upon some super cute seasonal subway art downloads.
If you're looking for something quick, easy, and inexpensive- here's a project for you!
I started with this really yucky $4 frame from Goodwill.
I took it apart, cleaned it, and spray painted it white.
Then added this sweet, free download from 1825.
(I printed it out as a 16X20 at Sam's for $6).So, for $10 and about an hour of my time, our house has some Valentine's decor- for the first time in a long, long time!
Now, I'm off to shop the house for some other red items and decorate a little more!
(I also had this free download printed for later in the year. It's stored behind the Valentine's print, so I can just swap them out and use the same frame.)

I printed the same christmas one and I looooove it. What a great idea to interchange the two - I might have to get the christmas one printed now!
