Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I normally don’t but wanted to this year. I wasn’t ready to give in to spring 100% so I thought about adding a little Boho Valentine’s Decor into our mix. Keep reading to see how I transformed our Living Room Mantle from Christmas decor to Simple Valentine’s Day decor.

Valentine’s day decor
I wanted to make sure that I didn’t buy a lot of “new” decor before I got started. With purging [HERE] I definitely didn’t want more stuff in the house even if it was Valentine’s decor. Over the years I have collected a lot of decor that I can change out with different seasons or use year-round with a lot of the decor I have for that different season. So, I wanted to make sure whatever I used was something I could use more than just for the month of February.
Before I got started, I looked around at what I had and what I thought I could use. A lot of the decor I had I could use. I got out the pink and whites to add a touch of pink to the Mantel. I didn’t have a lot of pinks, so I did the next best thing, send my husband to the craft store. Ha! (Tip: Ladies find you a man that will FaceTime you from the craft store) He got what I needed and was able to complete the Valentine’s Day Mantel.
Valentine’s Day Heart DIY
Measure your mantel to figure out the length of your twine. I would add an extra 6-12” to that. Layout the twine and space the hearts how far you want them to be once they are hanging. I cut small holes in the top of the hearts I had because the fabric weave wasn’t large enough to put the twine through. Once I cut the small holes, I put a piece of twine through the heart and tied them to the longer piece of twine.
Boho valentine’s day decor
If you have seen any of my Instagram posts [HERE] then you know that I tend to do more simple decor and I’ve always loved white + wood + green. Lately, I’ve been adding other colors in. I think Boho decor is along mine lines of simplicity with minimalist objectives while still displaying an aesthetically pleasing decor element to your home. Wow, that was a mouthful. To me, it means simple + classic + personalized + something great to look at.
Boho stands for Bohemian. Boho decor blends color and texture to give your living space a personalized touch.
No! I only have the hearts I made on the mantel and touches of pink. Use your imagination and try to decorate for Valentine’s Day without hearts!
