Valentine Decor with Damask

Since I inherited my grandmothers piano this past early fall, (that is so dear to me) it seems to be the first thing I decorate now. My grandmother was an amazing woman, she always had her piano looking fabulous and she played even more fabulous.

SO I went with a red, black, white, blue, and damask look for my piano this Valentines.

HERE IT IS BIGGER. I have learned now that in order for my pics to show up in the blog roll, I have to move it to the right and shrink it. Kinda a pain. 😉
I filled an apothecary jar with some red tinsel like heart garland. I added a red polka dot wood heart around the knob/lid with some blue ribbon.

 I took some damask tissue paper, cut to size, wrapped it around the candle, and taped it in the back. You can mod podge it on too. However, this way if you don’t want to keep the tissue paper look you can just pull it off.

 I filled a small apothecary jar with cinnamon sugar hearts.

and here is the small candle.

Here I filled another apothecary jar with my Mod Podge Napkin Damask balls. You can find these on the side of my blog for a tutorial. 😉

 I took simple Walmart ribbon and added a piece with a tied knot to each lamp shade.


None of this cost me a thing, I had all the stuff and just played around until I got the look I wanted. Thanks for stopping by… HAPPY CRAFTING, DECORATING, CREATING!
