My Valentine's Wreath

Ok, expect this to be my last Valentine's Day post.  Seriously, I'm not doing ANY more.  Ok, I might have to do some related baking, but!  I've met my quota. Jeesh, it is a very minor holiday, right? 

I posted on my Valentine Vignette yesterday and promised you a look at the wreath I made.  I do like to put something on my front door for each holiday...I'm not so grinchish in that regard.  I haven't done anything for Valentine's Day so...shut the front door!...haha, I came up with this down and dirty wreath. 

It was so simple to put together, it's a bit laughable, but simple has been my style lately.  Life with a newborn gives me about 30 minutes for the completion of any project.  For this reason, this little wreath was right up  my alley.

I got some Valentine's themed fabric at Joann's for 30% off.  I cut it into a few strips and started wrapping it around an inexpensive straw wreath.  Oh yeah, I broke out the big bucks for this one!;)


Then I decided it needed some more googaas and I've been admiring all of the yarn wreaths out there.  Again, I was too lazy or time deprived to wrap the whole wreath so I just did a few sections of yarn.  I added a bit of ric rac too.  Finally, I added an ornament and some sparkly foam hearts (from Joann's again) and I was done.  It's all stuck together with some of the best stuff on glue


I now have a little bit of Valentine's on my front door and I "look" festive for the neighbors.  Of course, that's all a front.
