W.S. Valentine wreath

I finally did it. I made a wreath I have been gushing over for the past year. The William Sonoma Valentine wreath.


First, I searched the Internet for some free valentine images. I then printed them on card stock and cut them out.




Next, I took a green foam wreath I purchased for a couple of dollars and covered it with some red ticking fabric strips.





Last, I placed my cards on the wreath, glued them on and added a polka dot ribbon for hanging. For a couple of dollars and an hour of my time, I added a new addition to my valentine decorations. We are also adding this to Show and tell Friday@ My Romantic Home, and Kimba's DIY. Stop over to both of these places and check out the great stuff.

Don't you just love when that happens? Your project is as good as the $40 one from Williams-Sonoma.
