Valentine’s Wreath and Christmas Wreath
Happy Valentine’s Day all!
Long time no post eh? Well it turns out, my son turned about 10.5 months in November and my time to sew went straight downhill. That seems to be the magic number for this gal. Now that my daughter is 3 and my son is now 13 months, I hope and hope and hope and hope that I will get more time to sew, but my priority and my choice is family. That’s okay too. There’s always time.
Just so you all know who’s been causing my sewing wows… Here he is. Ben at 13 months. When he’s in the mood, he knows he’s got me. Love him.
Anyway, I have managed to make two wreaths in the last few months. I credit the fact that I bought everything to make them when I did my Halloween Wreath back in September. You may remember it. If not here it is again in all of it’s glory.
For Christmas I made a Green, Red and White wreath. I was afraid it would look to Italian but it turned out quite nice. I picked up the sign for $1.99 at our local party supply store Everything Party. Personally my favorite party supply store ever. The ribbon was on a package last year and I saved it. It really does look like it was made for it. UPDATE: I realize now after uploading the picture, that the bow is missing from this wreath. I must have taken this picture prior to adding it and now it’s put away. If I get a chance to take it out, I’ll repost with the correct picture.
Next up, I made a Valentine’s Day wreath. My daughter’s princess party was a few weeks ago so having a pink wreath up to decorate was an extra bonus to this wreath. The baubles decorating it are from Ben Franklin. They were 80% off in the Christmas Clearance section and just perfect for it. I then found the hanging heart at Target. I can’t believe I found it. I had just about given up on finding a heart I could hang when I passed by it in the dollar section. It’s originally red, but I just covered it with glue and pretty pink glitter and it works perfectly!
Remember to check out the original post and instructions by Kindred Spirit Mommy if you’d like to make one of your own. She also lists the supplier that I also used for the tulle.
I couldn’t possibly put a picture of my son up without one of my daughter. Here she is painting Valentine’s Day Cookies for her school party last week.
Check out the concentration at 3 years old too! I think I have a crafter on my hands!!!
