Get Your Wreath On

It's not too late to put up your Valentine's Day decorations! I wanted to post this heart wreath for any of you who are into the whole last minute decorating thing... Right now is a great time to get your crafting done as so many stores are already clearancing their vday items. I was surprised...things are cheap and are picked over. I usually wait until the day after the holiday to get screaming deals but I would not be surprised if it was all gone by then.
This wreath is pretty simple. It is put together a lot like the kissing balls which you can find directions here. The only thing different is that I covered the styrofoam heart with tissue paper so it looked nicer. You could even spray paint it for a quick and easy fix. Or you could just find one on clearance at the craft store! lol! I just have trouble buying things when I know I can make it myself...but then I have piles of "to-do" projects that never get done... Well, I do like to be able to brag to all my friends that I made it...so that in itself is worth the extra work, right? ;)

Do you have any last minute Valentine's Day preparation to do? I still have a heart shaped ice cream cake to make the Brentster...coming soon!

    Have a great day.

  6. Gosh, you know what I still have to do for V-Day? Make some heart shaped dog biscuits. Our big dog (well, he's just a bit bigger and older but we call him the big dog) turns 2. He's a Valentine's baby and I really wanted to make him some doggie cookies. I have a mini-bone shape and mini-hearts I wanted to do. Plus! I need to make human cookies! Darn hubby came home sick from work today...ok, not darn hubby...but he foiled my plans. The plan was to get some butter and bake bake bake. Alas, not so. Maybe tonight though.

  9. Love the wreath! I bought silk flowers to make one but haven't been into the city to buy a heart-shaped form yet. Hope I can find one tomorrow......I really like how you wrapped it in tissue paper first, I would have never thought to have done that!

  12. Hi! I'm catching up from my absence!

    I'm so glad that you got the job! Best of luck with it! I always really liked my substitute teachers, so hopefully your kids feel the same.

    I LOVE those pin/brooch things from Kimba, they are so stunning.

    The baked goods look delish!

    Can you please type up a schedule of when/how you get everything done?!

    Love the wreath, I would just love to see you in action when you are crafting away!
