In honor of Valentine’s weekend (hint, hint if you have forgotten), ladies everywhere only wish they were this lucky. I would die.
Continuing to be crafty for each holiday for my 30 before 30 list! Here’s my problem – I have an idea of what I want to do, then wait until it’s too close to the holiday, then can’t find the exact materials I wanted. It always turns out perfectly fine, but my shopping trip takes a little longer as I have to get creative on my feet with whatever is available in the store. I think this one especially worked out well – I wanted to do a wreath of red/pink/white balls/ornaments, but alas could find none. So I just raided the Valentine’s section. I should get more creative, as I make a wreath for most holidays, but other people get to enjoy the wreath in my hallway, whereas if I made a different decor item I may be the only one who gets to enjoy it.
Instead of balls I found some felt hearts (which you could make yourself) and some pink and red sparkly foam hearts (kind of what I was looking for). I just bought it all and would return anything I ended up not using!
Wrap the wreath in whatever ribbon you bought. I used a white silky wired ribbon. I don’t think it really matters. Note: I used a 12-inch wreath and 1 spool of ribbon exactly covered it (barely).
Then just glue everything on – no rhyme or reason needed! I glued all the felt hearts on first, then filled in the little spaces with the glitter hearts. Then I already had some red burlap ribbon so I tied that on as the hanger (I actually tied & glued that on first before gluing the hearts down so I could glue some over it).
Happy Valentines week!
I really have nothing against Valentine’s Day, I just have never had any reason to actually “celebrate” it. However, being a southern WaHo girl, this made me smile. I think this even beats the White Castle V-Day Special. My favorite is the manager’s reference to “the fancy places like Red Lobster and Golden Coral.” Enjoy!
