So when did Valentine’s Day sneak up?
I’ve been talking about it for weeks over at the boutique but I still have “Happy New Year” written on my kitchen chalkboard! January was a solid month but I already feel like February is slipping away quickly!
I meant to think up a creative DIY project for the holiday to share with you all but I’m sure most of you are as strapped for time as I am so how about a FREE PRINTABLE instead?!
Okay. That’s what I thought.
I love this quote and chose it as a theme for decorating a Valentine’s Day Fireplace Mantle in our living room. Here is how I staged our mantle incorporating this printable I made on card stock.
“I wish I could turn back the clock.
I’d find you sooner and love you longer.”
To carry that theme into the mantle, I incorporated several clocks I found lying around the house. I like to reuse what I already have! Sometimes it forces me to get creative!
Then of course, I had to throw in some florals, candles, books and and small rustic touches for our farmhouse style.
I cut out small hearts from old book pages and scattered them through the chicken wire frame for some visual movement. It flows from our photograph.
There are so many theme decor ideas that come to mind with this quote. This is just what I came up with in less than an hour! I would love to do this again but maybe incorporate old black and white photos of our grandparents. Or if I can get around to it, I’d love to make a huge, distressed wooden clock as the focal point!
Love this quote and this theme! Grab your printable below!
