Valentines Day is only 4 days away! How did that sneak up on me so fast?! Yikes!
A couple of days ago I shared with you 2 different Valentine wreath ideas and today I have another for you! I was going to make 3 wreaths total but one is still a work in progress and with Valentine’s day so close, I think I might be shelving it until NEXT Valentine’s Day!
Darn you Pinterest!!! So many good ideas….so little time!!
Today’s wreath is a total Pinterest inspiration (seriously, do I even get ideas from anywhere else anymore!). I found this wreath on Pinterest as a Christmas idea and I did end up making one very similar for Christmas. Then I decided I wanted to make one in Valentine colors too! Here is the original wreath from Pinterest:
Aren’t you just SHOCKED that it is made out of rosettes??!! Remember, I warned you! Rosettes and wreaths are sort of a “thing” for me right now! And honestly she has a really good tutorial for rosette making on this page! I tried to do a tutorial but it SO did not work (should have realized I don’t have 3 arms- needed someone to help me with the picture taking as I am rolling!) If you are still confused as to how to make the rosettes, YouTube it, there are a bunch of different tutorials out there!
And my wreath was seriously quite cheap to make! I found a super great secret- Wal-Mart (don’t tell my husband I am promoting Wal-Mart- he might break out in hives! But my step-mom Judy will LOVE me for promoting Wal-Mart!) carries these wreaths for only $3.50 (that is really cheap for this size of wreath!) AND they have the fabric swatches that I use to make my rosettes for only $.97. I paid twice that at another craft store that shall remain nameless (but it rhymes with Show Anns!) So I bought the wreath for $3.50, 2 fabric swatches (red and white) and the berries I had leftover from Christmas. SO this wreath cost me right about $6 total to make. LOVE it!! (My hubby REALLY loves to hear that!)
So that was my inspiration and here is my actual Valentine wreath! ( I could not get a shot in any better lighting to SAVE MY LIFE! Remember- still haven’t moved that camera off the auto setting!)
This wreath sits right inside our front door. This sign usually hangs there:
I love changing things out for different seasons, it gives me something new to look at!
