This is a straw wreath that I covered with white paper twist (those of you my age may remember it from the 90's) that I untwisted and wrapped around the wreath to cover the straw. Then I used red paper twist and went around - and that was that - then as the years went by and the red faded to pink I came up with the idea to leave well enough alone but add the heart garland from the dollar store - funny - 20 years later and it still costs a dollar!! Now I just hang it up, as is, every year.
Above is the view from the outside of Lukas' window - My flower boxes have been transformed from Christmas (which I was too busy to post about and take pictures) into Valentines!
I simply taped these hearts I cut out of foam onto straws. I found that they were difficult to install into the frozen window baskets so I used wooden skewers and pushed them in then slipped the straw over that. I usually decorate through out the "flowers" with dollar store heart garland but couldn' find it in my house so I just used the white mesh ribbon that was already in place from the Christmas set up. I also kept the greenery -- I may just put fake geraniums in come spring cause the baskets are so shallow that the soil drys fast and our flowers never make it til July 4! Boo Hoo -- I dislike when I see other people putting silk flowers in the ground or buckets/baskets -- But, my thumbs are black :(
so don't judge me like I judge them, ok? hahahaha!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little intro to Valentines, I will be showing my mantle (maybe!) if the mood hits me to decorate it -
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods -
Until next time.....................Trisha
