Doing a little combo post here;) Wanted to show you the cutie-patootie wreath I made the other day - in seriously 20 minutes - ridiculously easy, cheap, and quick? Well sign me up!
this on a super clever blogger's page and *happened* (cough, cough) to be at my home away from home Michaels the very next day and spotted a foam wreath...honestly, I really wasn't there to pick up a foam wreath, but I remembered the cute conversation heart wreath I had just pinned and decided to grab it. So then of course I had to make a pit stop at the Dollar Tree (in my defense, it is on the way home;), to grab oh, about a bajillion bags of conversation hearts. Since I had only pinned it and hadn't read the directions, I didn't know how many bags I would need and man do I HATE being in the middle of a project and running out of something! Does that bug the you-know-what out of you too? So naptime arrived and I fired up the glue gun, and got my materials ready:
L-O-V-E glasses), so I stole a few and glued them in the spaces, like so:
Ok, now for some crazy cheap buffet table decorating, are you ready? I'm talking CHEAP. I used what I already had, and decorated this table for just a few buckeroos.
Next up, the glass dome with the felt rosettes ball.
Ravens wreath (who are in the FREAKIN' PLAYOFFS PEOPLE!!! Sorry, a little excited for this weekend...). Basically, cut a ton of squares out of your felt.
Then, start hot gluing them onto the foam ball and it'll look like this when you're done:
Fox Hollow Cottage, you must check it out! She's just a felt genius. Love her idea of ruffling the edges when you cut the spiral, so they look more like real roses. Plus, she's just awesome, so I think you should check her out regardless;) Total cost: $2.80 (for the felt and foam ball)
Ok, next we have the heart plate!
That red framed chalkboard was once this picture frame that was collecting dust:
Just for the heck of it, since it's also in the dining room, here's the current saying on the chalkboard - I erased Oh Holy Night a while ago, and wrote this, but I think it'll fit just fine for Valentine's Day, don't you?
So there you have it. Whew, that was a lot of pics, sorry for the overload! Hopefully you got some thrifty ideas to decorate for Valentine's Day. There's more to come, and you can bet more conversation hearts will be involved;).
