Repurposing An Evergreen Wreath for Valentine’s Day

Last year, as I was preparing to toss out my real evergreen Christmas wreaths,

I had an epiphany! ….. Love epiphanies!

I thought, hmmmm, I could channel Edward Scissorhands.

I did the same this year. I got out my scissors and cut the round wreath into a heart,

to repurpose the Christmas evergreen wreath for Valentine’s Day

rather than throw it away.

This is what the wreath looked like on my doors at Christmas.

The real evergreen wreaths were so lush and green. They have since dried and faded

on the back porch, waiting for me to decide what do with them.

I used to let them dry out in previous years and hang them in the patio.

By the way, the other wreath is actually hanging on the wall on the upper porch.

I went to Michael’s to see what they had to embellish the heart shaped wreath.

I found some great ribbon and a box of assorted felted hearts.

I really do not do much decorating for Valentine’s Day as I used to.

Just a few things here and there.

I also bought these adorable “Scotty Dog” clothespins at Michael’s.

I thought that they would work well to attach the felt hearts to the wreath.

I love to decorate this corner of the front porch for each season.

After Christmas, when all of the decorations are taken down from the porch

it seems a bit bare and devoid of color.

I took a trip to Lowe’s Home Improvement to see what they had in stock.

No flowers . . . was hoping I could get some pansies.

Just evergreens due to the weather/season.

So I added some faux evergreens and berries for pops of red to the vintage watering can.

Felted hearts placed in a wintery bird’s nest.

I purchased two Blue Point Junipers to place in pots on the porch.

This corner with the vintage weathered door and vintage wagon

needed these Junipers to dress it up.

I cannot wait to be able to fill the wagon with flowers again.

This corner of the porch is happy again

as it was filled with love and hearts!

Hope you have a day filled with love and hearts too!
