Christmas turns into Valentine

After each Holiday, decor items go on sale and it's the right time to grab a few things from 50 to 90% off. I usually grab couple of things to replace the D.O.A of the year. This time I bought a few things for flower arrangements, at 90% off who can argue. So with $3 worth of supplies and some left over tulle from my stash, I created my Valentine's wreath out of Christmas cast offs.


I just use 5 branches of red berries twisted together and wrapped the raspberry tulle, cut in 3" wide strips, to conceal the wires. Then with the left over tulle, I made a bow to hang the wreath with.

  2. Very pretty - the raspberry tulle is lovely.

    Today was the first day that I've gone shopping in a real store since Christmas. There wasn't much left at Walmart. :)

  8. I've thought the same thing about repurposing some of those pretty Christmas things, plus you can't go wrong with tulle.
