Valentine's Decor Fun!

Happy Friday everyone! We are getting so excited about Valentine's Day here and thanks to Pinterest I have mucho inspiration for the season. We have lots of indoor ideas to share and it's been fun seeing Teagan's reaction as she comes downstairs each morning to find a little more decorated. But I'm not finished just yet so that will come in a later post. Today I wanted to share the felt wreath I made for our front door. It's inexpensive and super easy!

This is my first attempt a DIY (do-it-yourself) post and I have to say:

So forgive the mismatched fonts and lack of a whole lot of pictures here. For now I
will direct you to an awesome tutorial at Domestifluff that will give you the scoop. Isn't that white wreath beautiful? I so wanna make this after Paddy's Day!

My two cents to add is that I used chalk and a 1/4 cup measuring cup to make my circles. The chalk comes off the felt easily and they were the perfect size to finish the project.

A rough rundown on price for this would be $4.00 for the wreath, $5.00 for ribbon with a ton left over for future projects, the felt is .29 each and the pins were $3.50. But I steal my sister's Sunday paper each week and have three coupons at 40% off to use at Michael's, Hobby Lobby and AC Moore. By the way, does your Michael's accept AC Moore coupons? Ours does and I love them for it!

Here is some more scoop on our outdoor Valentine's look....

I have to wrap up with a sweet Valentine picture of Teagan from 2010! Oh she looks so little bitty to me here. I just can't believe the change in one short year. She was so happy that we were about to head off in her wagon to deliver Valentine's to the kids on our street!

More to come! Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for visiting. I am also hoping to get a Silhouette soon! Your Valentine decorations look beautiful and I look forward to following to see what you do next.

  2. Lovin' your wreath! I can't believe it's simply made with felt. It sure doesn't look like it! Thanks for sharing these Valentine decorations at my Valentine Link Party! It's great to have you!

  3. Your wreath is darling! I found you through SKip to My Lou. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. Love your wreath - I'm pinning you back because it's so cute! Would love for you to link this project to my Craftastic Party (there's also a giveaway in the post for crafty supplies for making a glitter cottage, so enter for your chance to get some goodies!).

  5. Loving the felt wreath! Definitely going to make this :)

  6. Great idea, it is so beautiful, I can't believe it is felt. I saw some for dirt cheap at the thrift store today and couldn't think of a thing to do with I wish I had bought it. I am your newest follower and am pinning this now!

  7. Love the wreath! Love the you listed where you bought your materials and how much they were! Sometimes that's the hardest part of a project and you made it super easy!

  8. Beautiful wreath! I have been searching high and low for a heart shaped form, but after M's, HL, and J's didn't have it, I gave up. I left AC Moore back in FL and I haven't found one nearby since the move. Dangit. I still want to try my hand with the felt though, so I'm considering a patriotic one for Hubby's homecoming. Wish me luck that my felty ruffles come out as good as yours!

  9. Awesome!! I saw you on Tater Tots and Jello. Would you please be willing to share this fabulous post with my readers for Fun Stuff Fridays?


We'd love to have your comments so post away!
