Valentine's Day Mantel

It seems a bit early to have my Valentine's mantel up, but since I wanted to post about it I figured I needed to get it put together and finished.

I made a couple of things for this mantel, the first being the 3 pom pom hearts hanging from the mirror, which can be read about in this post.

The other thing I whipped up was the pink candle holder.  While strolling through Goodwill, I came across this green vase for 99¢.  I liked the bubble effect.  I also bought the small plate for 49¢.  Using some E6000 glue, I bonded them together.

I ran into a problem though...When I placed a pillar candle on it, the balance was off and the candle tipped over.  Back to Goodwill I went.  I picked up another, larger,  49¢ plate to glue to the bottom of the vase and spray painted it pink.  Much better.  I placed some of the extra crystals from the pom pom hearts on the plate, however I think it would look cuter with some Conversation Hearts (I'll have to pick some of those up soon.)

The pom pom hearts.
