Valentine wreath

I know that it's a very late post, but I've been very late about a lot of home stuff lately because of the work load in my job. I'm still posting it anyway. As they say, better late than never.

When I took down our Christmas decorations last January, I told my husband that I'd remove the Christmas ornaments on them but that I'll be keeping the wreaths on our front door and kitchen door. My idea is to change their ornaments depending on the season or holiday.

For Valentine, I made little red hearts out of cardboard and outlined them with black glitter. I didn't have time to go to a shop to look for other Valentine ornaments though, but I hope to add more through the years.

My problem now is, it's already the last week of March and I still haven't replaced the hearts. Again, I haven't had the time to go shopping. I'm scheduled to have my monthly mall trip next Sunday and I hope I can sneak in the ornaments. I also hope that I can find something appropriate for summer. At least, the way our summers have been the past few years, I won't have to worry about replacing them until July!

Cute idea. Why not blow out some eggs and color the shells to add as decorations? It should be a challenge to find some natural elements to decorate, too. Enjoy.

Good luck with the ornaments. Personally I have a dislike of wreaths but I know they are very popular in America.

Hilda, If it makes you feel any better, I just took my Christmas cards down...yesterday! Anyway, thanks for stopping by, in answer to your question about Box Tops. There is a fundraising effort called Box Tops for Education. Eligible food, household items, etc. have little coupons that are worth .10 cents that schools can clip and submit. Have a great day!
