Valentine's Day Mantel: black, white and gold

I'm back with another Valentine's project.

My black, white and gold Valentine's Day Mantel.

I started with the black and white striped painted board that was the 
background of my Christmas and winter mantel.

Then I added a gold glitter heart on top.

I hand cut a heart shape from a sheet of foam core.
Then I painted it gold with craft paint.
Then I grabbed some regular gold glitter and mixed it with some extra fine glitter.

I brushed on mod podge with a foam brush in a small section.
Then I sprinkled the mixed glitter onto the wet glue.
I kept a paper plate underneath to catch the loose glitter, then reused it.

After the heart dried, I hot glued it onto the b/w striped board.

I found this super cute, decorated wooden banner at the Target Dollar Spot that was just perfect!
I hung it on my mantel exactly as it came out of the package.

I made this love word art many years ago.

I pulled some candles and candle sticks out of my stash and put them up there.

And there's my black, white and gold Valentine's Day Mantel.
