So, with a free afternoon this last weekend, I dug through my craft supplies and jazzed that wreath up another notch. BAM! (Don't get that reference? Here ya go.)
First up: bows. Bows are always good. I made a bow from some ribbon I had laying around and then tied it to the wreath with a piece of heart-printed ribbon. (Sidebar: does anyone have any ideas for how to use thin printed ribbons? I LOVE those ribbons, but I never really have any uses for them. Help me out here. Ribbon ribbon ribbon. Now it looks like it's spelled wrong, doesn't it? Ribbon.)
I had a pack of felt hearts, left over from an attempted Valentine's tree a few years ago ("attempted" meaning that I meant to decorate my little Christmas tree with Valentine's stuff, but then all the pre-strung lights on the tree died and I didn't want it anymore), and a roll of sparkly red and white heart tinsel, plus some ribbons and a heart charm from an old necklace. I trimmed a few of the hearts off the tinsel and with and some Krazy Glue, I made an ultra-Valentine's-y dealie to hang in the center of the wreath.
It's now proudly hanging on our living room wall, despite the season, simply because I don't have a box big enough in which to store it. And you know, I'm not sure that huge pink sparkly heart-shaped wreaths AREN'T all-seasons appropriate!
