Valentines Day Wreath--2013

This was posted 2 January's ago and since it is right now my most view page thanks to Pinterest and Google, I thought I had best be re-posting it in the event you wanted to make one of these beauties yourself! I have an urge to make a few more for Memory Lane...



I am rawther pleased with how this turned out. So pleased that I decided to make another one:





And now I have TWO wreathes hanging by the front door! I think I will keep the first one (Hubby's favorite) and the other will be heading off to Memory Lane today.




To make these, I used a heart shaped grapevine wreath from Michael's and then wrapped it in some tinsel garland bought at Target during their 75% off after Christmas sales:







And of course dipped into my stash of vintage red and silver balls to go with the pink yummies:



And then I fired up that high heat hot glue gun, went into a trance-like state and stayed there until every last ball was glued on...it is never good when you come out of that that trance like state and start thinking about home improvement projects that you might be able to do using a high heat hot glue gun. Just Saying.

I have one more wreath and one more strand of garland and many, many boxes of red vintage balls left...so there will be an all red heart shaped wreath in my future!

Brilliant.I am headed to the basement to begin one of my heart shaped cake tins that I've been "collecting" for ages.Then to the tinsel box to do-dad them up.
