I love decorating for Valentine's Day.
I enjoy having the red and pink colors pop around the house, especially on my mantel. Now, I haven't decorated my mantel for the occasion quite yet, but this weekend I worked on a craft to hang from the mirror above our mantel.
Right now, my mirror is occupied by this, my newest wreath.
My idea was to somehow cover a styrofoam heart to hang from the mirror. Hobby Lobby had a heart, however the largest one wasn't big enough, so I decided to do a trio of hearts. The following picture is missing the largest heart because I got to going on the craft so quickly, I forgot to take a "before" picture. I think all three hearts totaled about $5.00.
While looking for Valentine's Day ribbon, I stumbled across these jewels and I thought they'd be a nice addition and add just enough sparkle. Each bag was priced at $1.99.
I'm usually pretty good about taking some "during" pictures, but not this time. My apologies. I just didn't have it in me. But...I can tell you this. You can follow this link to learn how to make felt pom poms. My wreaths are just a bunch of pom poms glued together.
I started by lining the inside of the hearts and worked my way outward until the styrofoam wreath was nearly covered. I did not cover the entire thing, since it will be resting on the mirror.
After gluing on all of the pom poms, I added the jewels here and there.
Ta, da...done! I can't wait to hang them from my mirror and I will be posting pictures of my mantel next week
so stay tuned.
