Love is in the air

Okay, Christmas is over.  New Year's is past, that obviously means it's time to decorate for Valentines, right?  Here's the thing.  I think Valentines is about the goofiest holiday there is.  Next to April Fools of course.  I've never been into celebrating Valentines.  Like at all.  I know, totally un-girly, right?  I've never gotten into getting flowers and candy for Valentines.  Not that I complain when my husband shows up with flowers.  I love flowers, I just prefer when they come un-mandated by Hallmark.

So, back to decorating.  Maybe my little Valentine Grinch hard grew one size, I don't know what it is.  But I've started decorating for Valentines a little.  Okay, let's be honest.  A lot.  I may have spent my entire day yesterday making craft projects.  With the Christmas decorations down, my doors were looking a little naked, so it was obvious that I had to make a couple of new wreaths.  

Today I'm sharing my front door wreath with you guys.  I did a little Pinterest investigating and came up with some wreaths I loved.  The great thing was I already had almost all the yarn I needed.  I'm still kind of in love with yarn wrapped wreaths.  So for my first wreath I grabbed a charcoal grey yarn and a pale grey yarn.  I loved the contrast.  And I cut a few hearts from bright pink felt and hot glued those bad boys on.  My inspiration had yarn wrapped over the hearts argyle style but I kind of liked it plain so I left it alone.

I think I may need to hang it from some ribbon instead of just hooking it on the wreath holder.  We'll see.  

Anybody else already decorating for Valentines?  Am I the only crazy one?


  1. Cute wreath! I dont usually decorate for Valentine's Day, but I do have some "winter" decorations that I want to put together for January/February. Particularly snow themed because I really want to see some snow!

    1. Thanks! I never decorate for Valentines either. I usually jump straight into spring and deny that winter exists. I hope you get some snow! And then I get none at all. :)

  2. Seeeeee? We're totally real life friends! I've never gotten into Valentines Day either. (The dreaded VD. Baha!) It just feels so unbearably cheesy and I don't want any mandated gifts, thankyouverymuch.

    I do, however, dig that wreath. :)

    1. Hooray for real life blog friends! :) I know, Valentines is so goofy, right! I prefer spontaneous flowers :)

      Thanks for the sweet wreath compliment. I may have gone slightly wreath crazy this year. Oops.
