Hello friends! For several years now I have been ooohing and ahhhhing over my friend Audrey Pettit's amazing household decorations for the holidays. Now mine don't hold a candle to hers. She has an amazing house with lots of room for decorations and I don't, so my display is pretty small. Thought I'd share it anyway and wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day.
The first photo is a wreath made of vines from the field behind my house. I made three different styles of felt flowers and tied them onto the wreath with twine so I can reuse the wreath for different events.
Next is my Valentine branch tree. I already had the medium sized red and pink hearts so I picked up the others this year and added them all to some branches from my yard.
I found the instructions for these amazing felt trees on Pinterest and had a blast making them. The base is a styrofoam cone and you cut out tons of felt circles and push them into the cone with some hot glue. You got a sneaky peek of these bare in the photo of my February calendar page. I added pompom trim to the pink one and some white textured paper hearts and pink bows to the larger red one.
I got a little help from my hubby to get the chunk of tree that I carved our initials in. I think I need to invest in a Dremel tool and deepen the etching a bit. I used some chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby to mimic the LOVE statue. The base is actually a large letter "I". All pieces were painted and then covered in Triple Thick to seal them.
Simple things, but I enjoyed making them and bringing a little Valentine fun into my home.
Hope you all have a fabulous day of celebrating Love!
