Hello Plum Adorable Friends! It has been a CRAZY week! Jenny and I were up to our elbows in sign making and shipping for Groopdealz! We had a lot of fun and it was really successful, we sold out of all 70 signs and then added 20 more and sold out of those too! So we have been busy making and mailing 90 signs out across the country. I meant to take pictures of the whole process to show you all but that simply didn’t happen! And now that we are all done with the signs (until we come up with another one!) we are super excited to start sharing some Adorable Valentines ideas with you!
I have a little obsession with wreaths lately! I found about 10 on Pinterest that I really wanted to do but finally had to cut myself off and went with just 3. The first wreath I want to share is inspired by Jenny and I’s friend, Tamara. See, she (and our other friend, Nichole) have been holding out on us! We didn’t know they were crafty until very recently when they discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest (thanks to Jenny’s prompting). Then all of a sudden, these girls are crafting up a storm! They had some really cute wreaths that they both made for Christmas and then Tamara showed us the one she made for Valentines! She kindly let us put it here on the blog and inspired me to do a wreath in the same fashion.
Here is Tamara’s ADORABLE Valentine Wreath!
I LOVE the yarn wreath! I love the simplicity of it! I would say that I love how super easy they are but I don’t want to mislead you! They are easy in terms of not having a lot of materials needed or even a lot of complicated steps but they are time consuming in terms of wrapping and wrapping and wrapping….around and around and around and around and then tightening to make sure it lines up nicely and looks great too! SO I will say easy but time consuming and monotonous… do it while watching a movie! (I did!) So Tamara’s wreath inspired me to make one of my own! Only I really wanted it to be heart shaped and boy did I get lucky in that department!!
I found this heart form at Jo-Ann’s and luckily for me someone broke it! That means they sold it to me for 75% off! Total Steal! AND I still got to use my 50% off coupon on my yarn! So it was super cheap!
And that break in the heart? I just used some white duct tape and you would never know! (Especially when it will be covered by beautiful red yarn anyways!) So I was able to easily fix this broken heart!
So like I said, it is really easy to wrap it all up…just time consuming! And I didn’t anticipate how I would make the tip of the heart come together. That took some brainwork (I was TRYING to watch a movie!) and I couldn’t honestly explain it other than to say that I crisscrossed a lot and then had glue it a little at the back.
I wasn’t quite happy with the finished product so I decided to add something else to spice it up!
Rosettes are another minor obsession of mine! You might see them A LOT on my Valentine stuff (just a warning up front!).
So I thought I was all done! Pretty Valentine Wreath ready to display!! But I just felt like it needed ONE more thing! (Thank the Lord I do NOT do this to myself, I would be way over accessorized! )
So I HAD to add some white yarn! I think I’m done now!
Except…. I think I want to display it somewhere else! And then Mr. Adorable (Tyler for those who would prefer that I didn’t call him that- like him!) said he thought it was too Christmas-y now (candy cane flashbacks). So what do you think? White yarn or no white yarn??
Oh and PS…that adorable “LOVE” printable you see next to my wreath came from here!
Thanks again Tamara for letting me share your Adorable wreath and inspiration to make one too!
