Valentine Wreath

You might remember when I was inspired to make a boxwood wreath like the one in the Pottery Barn Catalog for Christmas...remember? Good.

I have been really happy with it, because to me boxwood is an everyday greenery, an evergreen, an all the time kinda thing.....and I decided to give it a little love for Valentine's day.


This is how my little wreath looked like dressed up for Christmas


....and here it is all ready for Febuary 14th.


I left the "E" (for Edwards) on and simply added some fun checkered ribbon, a puffy heart, a glitter heart and tied a bow with the wired heart garland.

I got most of the supplies at Michael's, but I had the ribbon left over from Christmas. That's the great thing about Valentine's Day, some things will transition right from Christmas.

My boxwood wreath is proving to be very useful! Maybe even St. Patrick's Day?



Thanks for Stopping by!
