Valentines Felt Flower Wreath

Jenny at Embellishing Life posted about her adorable valentine wreath a little while back. I loved it, so I bookmarked it. And now that Valentines Day is less than a month away, I felt like it was time to bust out one of my own. I thought I’d add a touch of pink to mine as well. I picked up some felt at Joann’s and a wreath form at the Dollar Tree. I did red rosettes around the top two thirds, and the pinks in no particular pattern around the bottom third.

Because my wreath form was thinner, I felt like it still needed a little something. So I made some pom pom flowers like Ashley at Little Miss Momma did a tutorial for. It added just the right touch at the bottom of the wreath.

Then I just tied some red ribbon to hang it with, tiptoed out on my rain soaked front porch and with cold, cold feet, admired my wreath.

I could have waited to take pictures in the daylight, but knowing me, I’ll be running late in the morning. And then I’ll forget when I come home in the afternoon, and I’ll remember when it’s dark again. So, instead, you get to enjoy looking at it through the reflection of my flash.

I love it. But I didn’t admire it for long. My feet were cold and wet.

 

UPDATE!!!

I actually woke up on time today, got ready quickly and had the time to take some pictures of the wreath! So here you have it, in daylight!
