Here’s a redux from last year! Found more of the same from Walmart, for $1.75
….. The Valentine’s Quickie Wreath project…
It’s not what you’re thinking.
The other day, I had a little kitchen money left over from the end of the week. My youngest and I ventured to K-Mart to look over the end of Christmas sales and see what we could get for 90% off. Seriously. It’s January and they’re having 90% off Christmas decorations. Way to get ready for the Ho-Ho-Holiday for next year! Still, it’s almost Valentine’s day, and I never, ever have decorated for the happy heart day that heralds both my husband and my oldest daughter’s birthdays. And I love to decorate. SO, maybe I had Valentine’s on the brain as I was looking through broken ornaments, tattered garland, and ratty little trees. Perhaps we should have come out when it was 75% off, I was thinking.
We turned a corner. What I saw, I couldn’t believe. Pink and red shiny garland. In Christmas wrappings. For 90% off. It was originally 6.99. That means .69? For a broad swath of very Valentine looking garland? I can work with that, I thought, and shoved it in my cart.
We got home and I thought, mantle? No. I’m copying a friend of mine with her scrabble-esque I Love You frames. Draping it anywhere else just seemed cheesy. What I wanted was a door hanger. So, here’s what we did.
- Wire from the garage.
- Glue gun.
- Ribbon from my endless craft supplies.
- A heart to make it happen.
