January is almost over and the time is right to decorate the doors of our home for Valentine’s Day. I made two versions of the same wreath, one for the front door and one for the kitchen door.
The kitchen door version has a dark pink with white hearts fabric background accented with white hearts and pink yarn.
The kitchen door wreath is recycled from a neighbor’s Christmas wreath thrown out with the trash. I removed all of the greenery and the green plastic over the wreath form and allowed the straw part to dry thoroughly.
The form was then wrapped in duck tape to keep the straw from shedding. (You can see that it shed quite a bit as I wrapped it.)
The form was then wrapped in fabric strips held in place with hot glue.
A cookie cutter made an ideal heart template. Hearts were traced onto felt and then cut out with scissors.
After figuring out the placement, the hearts were glued in place and yarn was wrapped around the wreath to make an argyle pattern over the hearts.
I’m happy to have the outside of our home decorated for the season. Do you have Valentine décor on your doors?
