Happy Valentine’s Day!! Much love to you and yours.
The two door conundrum. Okay, now that I have this double door I’ve been presented with a bit of a puzzle – one wreath or two? If I have one wreath in the center it tends to whack folks in the head when they come in the door – so… I’ve been trying to slowly transition to the two wreath approach.
For Valentine’s Day this year I literally threw together these two wreaths in less than an hour and for under $12.
I purchased two of these wire wreath forms at Michael’s for around $3 each.
I cut the flannel into strips and just wrapped it around and around until the entire wreath was covered. (x’s 2)
Next up I repeated the process with some pink gingham I purchased at Walmart for about $5.
Here’s a close up. To finish the ends I just tucked them in.
My initial plan was just to leave them like this, but they looked too plain. I sorted through my fabric stash and picked out some scrap fabric in pinks and reds. I tore the fabric into strips, and cut the strips to 9″ lengths. I also went through my ribbon supply and grabbed some pinks, creams, and whites. Then I just tied them on – raw edges and all.
It looks a little like a hot mess, but I like it…especially for under $12 and less than an hour’s time.
May you know that you are loved on this special day. Happy Valentine’s Day!
