A Gorgeous Valentine's Day Wreath

I'm going to share some posts from last year that have wonderful Valentine's Day ideas. Here's the first one! 

I FINISHED IT!
Isn't it beautiful?

The pictures do not do it justice.  The felt is a great velvety red.

I've temporarily placed it on my mantle since it's too cold to go outside and put it on my door.

I LOVE my new heart wreath!

Do you want to make one?  Well, this was a copy craft. Let me give you a few pointers. There are more than 300 three inch circles on my wreath.  It took over a yard and a half of felt.  The original crafter said she used 3/4 of a yard.  I'm thinking I put my circles a little too close together.  Oh well.  I think it looks fantastic and the blisters on my scissor hand will heal soon.  Just kidding.  I didn't get blisters but that did make for a lot of cutting.  I did double up the felt so I was cutting two at a time.  That helps! Also, love all my friends and my Mommy but I won't be making anymore of these this year.  As glad as I am that I made it, I'm circled out.  This is not a mass crafting recommended project.

Here's the link to the creator: http://www.theidearoom.net/2010/01/felt-heart-wreath.html Kudos to her for creating such an amazingly beautiful wreath.

We're still facing freezing conditions and icy roads.  GraciAnn solved the dilemma of how to warm up after playing in the snow....

A BUBBLE BATH!

I'm so glad Jill shared her "recipe" for bath paints.  My girls adore bathtime and paint. We'll be making those soon.  So, since we're iced in again tomorrow, I'll be working on another project in the works, "THE PLAYROOM!"  Yikes!  Wish me luck!
