Reds and pinks are not my decorating colors (I rarely even wear red), but I made a small exception for Valentines Day.
I wanted a little something for my door and a wreath seemed like a fun choice. No real instructions–I used five different coordinating papers, one of which was patterned with the word love and then cut strips between 2-4.5″ and then folded them in half. Then I free hand cut out a bunch of hearts.
I used a scrap of posterboard and (roughly) cut a 12″ circle about 2.5″ thick for my wreath base, then I grabbed a roll of small glue dots and went for it. I started with the bigger hearts and spaced them out a little and stuck ’em down. Then I started layering in smaller hearts. I needed to cut several rows of little hearts at the end to fill in small holes so there wasn’t awkward spaces. It was very low-tech.
Then I hung it up. I live in a condo, so my front door is in the hallway–no weather worries here!
The whole thing took me maybe an hour and was pretty painless.
Do you decorate for Valentines Day?
Cute idea! And no, I don’t decorate for valentines but it’s a fun idea.
