I don't typically decorate for Valentine's Day, but this year for some reason (maybe because I keep seeing so many cute things on my favorite blogs) I am in the mood for Valentine's Day! Yesterday I decided to make a wreath in my favorite V-Day color, PINK! Originally I thought to make one out of mesh, but since I haven't attempted mesh yet, and my friend Lynda wasn't here to help me, I opted for a pink feather boa! Seth and I rambled around Hobby Lobby and picked up a few "prissy" things for me to use in my wreath. As a side note, I do think it proves that God has a sense of humor because I love all things prissy, and yet, I have this rough and tumble, ALL BOY, little man who is with me on all my "girly" shopping expeditions! Don't you know he just loved walking around the store with 3 pink feather boas???
Anyway, as with my Christmas wreaths, I just dumped the stuff on the counter and went to work. First I attached the feather boas with a glue gun. Then I added the felt hearts and the little wooden pieces that say "Be Mine" and "Kisses". It didn't look complete though so I added a little pink and white poodle that I found in my stash of "cutesy" things that I buy sometimes... just because :-)
I tried to attach it to the big mirror in our informal dining room with suction cups, but they would NOT stick - I don't know why - that has always worked in the past. Finally, I grabbed a length of pink chiffon ribbon, looped it through the wreath and tied it to the top of the mirror. I may go to Hobby Lobby on Monday and get some extra ribbon and tie a better, fluffier bow on the top, but for now, this will have to do!
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day? What is your favorite Valentine color? Traditional red? Hot pink? Or like me, do you prefer a softer pink?
Thank you for visiting!
