20 Gorgeous Valentine’s Day Mantel Décor Ideas

The mantel is the piece that always gets festive whenever there’s a special occasion. On Halloween it gets decorated with pumpkins and other themed items, on Christmas it gets a wreath or Christmasy decorations and Valentine’s Day it gets decorated with hearts and romantic elements. There are all sorts of mantel decorations that you can make by yourself for this romantic occasion.

Handcrafted decorations are always beautiful and they make the décor feel more casual

For example, you can make a lovely wreath or you can make a garland to hang on the mantel. You can also cut out some hearts from colored paper and spread them all over. Flowers are also popular decorations and they create a romantic atmosphere when placed in a beautiful vase. Of course, you can be creative and come up with all sorts of other ideas.
