Oh Valentine’s Day. V-Day. Hallmark holiday. Whatever you want to call it. It’s not a holiday I normally acknowledge much. I mean, I’d rather show love every other day than just one day a year. And I’ve never been a fan of the colors pink and red. But this year I felt like brightening up our front door from the snowflake wreath (that clearly has not brought us enough snow to snowshoe). So I made the easiest, least expensive red and pink Valentine’s Day wreath and ironically, I love it. ❤️
A few week’s ago I was browsing through Michael’s looking for something for our door. Sure, they have some pre-made wreaths but in normal fashion, I needed to make my own. I picked up this felt laser cutout heart for less than $2. I then went to my local dollar store and grabbed a roll of tulle and some cute little glitter hearts to add on top. The binder ring I already had and knew it would be perfect to fan the tulle behind the heart.
I first cut the tulle into 18 inch strips, using the entire roll of tulle. Then I folded the strips and looped them through the binder ring the same way you would to make a tulle tutu. After that, I fanned the tulle out evenly and used some of my favorite glue to stick the heart on top. I then continued using the glue to add the small glitter hearts around the perimeter. (We will just infer the fact that I forgot to photograph the glueing portion of this craft. 😬)
Once the glue dried overnight, I stole some fishing line from my husband (I really need to get my own stash for crafts). Using the fishing line, I looped it through the binder loop and hung it on our door. Cheap, easy, and festive!
This same idea could be used for upcoming holidays too. When I was at the dollar store I noticed they had pink laser cutout hearts as well as four leaf clovers and Easter eggs. Just think, in less than an hour and for less than $10, one could have door decor for 3 holidays! I may just need to make them all myself. 😉
