I had been thinking about designing a mantel using wind mills as the theme, and I couldn't decide whether to do the wind mill mantel or a Valentine mantel.
I wondered if I could design a mantel using windmills with a twist ......Valentines....lol!
I hope you will enjoy my whimsical mantel as much as I enjoyed designing it!
I started my design by gathering up some windmills to put on the mantel.....then I added a couple of canvas farm animal prints .....and some small bouquets of flowers.
Then, I stapled some black ribbon with Farmhouse written on it in white to the edge of the mantel. (You can find this ribbon on Amazon.)
Before I show you close ups of the other end of the mantel, I want you to see the amazing Valentine fabric I found at Hobby Lobby over the week end.
Isn't this the cutest fabric ever!!!!
I plan to use it year round!
See how I am combining Windmill art with Valentine's Day decor......I think it works!
Now to look at the other end of the mantel......
I decorated this end of the mantel pretty much like the other end.....windmills, canvas prints and roses.
Both sides of the banner have this heart and pink barn, but each end has different cows.....
I have another windmill quote on the side table next to the fireplace.....
Sometimes in the winds of change, we find our true direction......love it!
I hope my whimsical Farmhouse / windmill mantel and Valentine decor put a smile on your face!
