I decided to make a couple of crafts for Valentine’s Day this year, even though I don’t usually do much in the way of decorating for Valentine’s Day. Today’s post is about making a Christmas wreath work for Valentine’s Day. I have seen so many cute things on other blogs that I just could not resist doing something! So I went to JoAnn’s Fabrics on Saturday morning and bought some supplies. Here is what I bought:
I bought those flower’s at the dollar store. I thought they were really pretty for fake peonies. The sand, wood glue, mod podge and grey yarn were for other projects I am planning. So basically all I used for these two projects were the little love heart, the pink yarn, the Styrofoam heart, and the ribbon. The flowers were for another project I will show you soon. I left my Christmas Wreath hanging when I took everything else down, because I knew I wanted to use for Valentines Day as well, I just needed to tweak it a little bit. But first I will show you my yarn heart. This was so simple! Actually, when I went to Joann’s, this is the heart I had in mind:
So, I go to Joann’s with this heart in mind, and then I realized that these little pom poms don’t come in a big bag of fuzzy pink! (Well, they do come all in pink, but they weren’t available in my local store, but you can find them here). They are multiple colors! Why did I think I would be that lucky? Do you know how many bags I would have had to buy to get this many pink pom poms? WAY TOO MANY!! So I needed an alternative. I started browsing around and found yarn on sale for 40% off in a pretty pale shade of pink. I decided to make a yarn heart. simple, right? Here is the finished product.
Do you decorate for Valentines Day? I am not big on it, but I did just a few little things around here that made it seem sweet. If you have done anything that you would like to share, please send me pictures and I will share it here! I have one more little Valentines Day decoration that was super easy and cheap and I will show it to you in another post. Have a great Thursday everyone!
