'Heart-FELT' Wreath

Once upon a time there was a boy.
He was smart and CONFIDENT and had a serious case of mackdaddyness.
He had a fabulously romantic, fLaShY job at The Shack...Radioshack.
He liked computers and cars and Napoleon Dynamite.
He met a GIRL. He fell in love.

Once upon a time there was a girl.
She was blonde and FLIRTY and had a serious case of single-itis.
She had a fabulously romantic, fLaShY job at The Shack...Radioshack.
She liked fakin' bakin', dancing and going out.
She met a BOY. She wasn't sure.

He KISSED her. She laughed at him.
He played hard to get. It worked.
She fell in love.
They dated. They broke up.
They dated.
He sat next to her on her little brothers bed, held her hand, and asked her to be his FOREVER.
She said no.
He cried. She cried.
He left.
She changed.
He asked her again.
She said YES.

7 1/2 years, 2 kids, and thousands of kisses later they are still in love and she still wants to be his forever. Sometimes he's not so sure. (ha ha just kidding-I hope!!!)

Love. Such a small word that holds so much meaning it can make you experience every emotion the human body can feel.

I know some people detest Valentines day, but for me it's one day a year I can SHOWER my family with love. I hope I show them everyday how much I love them, but I will happily take one extra day to be ridiculously, over-the-top, mushy, gushy and lovey!

I love LOVE! I love hugs and kisses and hearts (as you've probably noticed that's what's been used in all my decor!) and that I get to decorate with those things one month a year! When I saw this Valentine Heart last year on The Idea Room I was inspired to make my own little version...


Amy uses a heart styrofoam form, but my craft store was sold out so I just picked up a block of styrofoam and Mr. Sweet Love cut me out a heart shape. :)


I used about 1 billion more felt circles that what's pictured below. Ha ha! Seriously...SO many felt circles!


I did this before I was blogging so I don't have any step-by-step pictures for this one, but I made another felt wreath for Halloween, and I did a detailed tutorial that you can find here. (And a Fall one here.)

Amy also just did a solid red felt, but I got a little crazy and did red, hot pink and light pink.




It ended up being more long and narrow, than wide but I like that it fits kinda snuggly right up into my window frame. :)




What about you? Do you detest Valentines day or are you a sucker for love? Either way I'll still love you! :) Hope you're having a great week, thanks so much for stopping by!!

Linking up to these great parties as well as:

Michelle Paige said...

Absolutely precious! I love this! Thanks so much for linking up to my Valentine Link Party! (I loved your boy meets girl story, too!)

Jessica :) said...

Love *love* LOVE your story. Isn't it so fun to have memories like that? Even they aren't all sweet and lovey they still make your story what it is today and that's a beautiful thing. I'm so glad you shared! :)
Also, I love your wreath! I think the different colors make it so interesting and fun. I love that! I keep meaning to make a felt wreath (you inspire me woth yours) but I cannot seem to find any felt in this little ole town of mine. Walmart (which is the only place with any felt - our craft store doesn't sell it. Yes, this is lame.) was all out of everything except a sky blue. Pretty sure that doesn't work for Valentine's Day. Whew. Enough tangents. I love Valentine's and I love your wreath and I love your blog and you! :D

Such a super sweet post! And yes, I'm one of those people who absolutely LOVES Valentine's Day...I know, I know! I just love all the romance, hearts...man, I love hearts. Love making crafty little sumthin'-sumthin's for all the people I love in my life on Valentine's Day. Too shy to do it any other time, so Valentine's Day is a good excuse Ü

Hello, I think your web site could possibly be having
internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it
looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, great website!

I'm really inspired along with your writing abilities and also with the format to your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days..

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
you using for this website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with
hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Your heart-shape felt wreath is gorgeous! I made a topiary using the felt circles folded into quarters and it took me about 400! That's a lot of cutting, but it was worth it.
