Valentine Wreath

First and foremost! Let's follow up from yesterday...

I ♥ Garrett Heartley for his glorious *feat* (46yds, 44yds, 47yds)
I ♥ Tracy Porter and his exciting 74 yard return!
I ♥ Drew Brees and his 32 completions (tying the record with Tom Brady.)
I ♥ Sean Payton's belief in his team and decision to
have an onside kick at the top of the 3rd quarter.
I ♥ Reggie Bush... because well I have since his time at USC and he had a good game.

Party time in NOLA! What a wonderful game!

Now back to what I spent the rest of the weekend doing. :)

A few of my friends have been making felt rosette wreaths and so I was inspired to do the same since my front door was lacking Valentine's Day decor. B made one for Christmas and Stacy just recently made one for Valentine's. I used the same tutorial that they both used which is simple yet repetitive. I started after Ace went to bed on Friday night tracing and cutting circles. I cut about 120 and pinned those on and headed to bed around 1am.

I finished on Saturday night with a total around 200(ish) circles pinned onto the 10" foam wreath. I truly recommend getting pins that have the glass balls on the end. I used a box of 200 and then had to move onto push pins without the thumb-saver on them and goodness only using like 10 of those and my finger was burning. So be sure to get some similar to this and you'll be a-ok. Sunday morning I added a few final circles, fluffed, and hung it on our door. Now we're set for Valentine's Day. and if I feel so inspired, it wouldn't be that hard to remove the red coloring off the wreath and replace it with other colors to keep it current with whatever 'season' we're in. We'll see though. It might simply remain a Valentine wreath. :)

Stopping by from SITS and this is just a lovely idea. I've been seeing the cupcake ones but this looks like it would last a bit longer! It is really gorgeous. Great job!
