Valentine Wreath Ideas

valentine wreath ideas

Hi there! How are you today? So, do you have big plans for Valentine's Day? Our kids are busy addressing their class valentines and I'll be helping out with some class parties. As a family, we may do some fondue that evening, but we typically don't celebrate this particular holiday in a BIG big way. Did you see my Valentine chalkboard art, though? I love how it turned out. Here are some other really pretty Valentine decorations for your front door. I tried to find some unique ones for you.

Romantic Bedroom Ideas

how to have a sexy bedroom

Woo, woo! Is your bedroom ready for Valentine's Day? Ours will soon as I clear the laundry off the bed, wash the dog-hair covered quilt, gather up the kids' books and stuffed animals, and put away my laptop and all those receipts that are on our nightstand. If you, too, have a bedroom that is lacking in ambiance, you might want to check out these tips for creating a romantic bedroom. Your own little love nest is right around the corner.

Valentine Chalkboard Art

Hi guys! Do you still have a Christmas wreath on your front door? Well, I've got a 10-minute solution to THAT particular problem! It's almost Valentine's Day, so yesterday I whipped up this cute chalkboard art for our door. It was so easy, guys, and it literally only took about 10 minutes.

First, I found this great magnetic chalkboard at Jo-Anns for 50% off, so it was only $4.50. It had an unfinished wood frame so I brushed a little stain I had left over from another project on it to make it look more rustic.

While that was drying, I went in search of more craft supplies. I had a package of paper doilies, so that inspired me. I just cut out a red heart and glued it to the doily.

After the frame of the chalkboard was dry, I flipped it over and stapled some rope to the back for a hanger.

Next I wiped the whole chalkboard with an eraser to "season" it (here are some more tips on how to create chalkboard art), then wrote "Welcome" on it in Janda Stylish Script. (Again, to see how I did this--'cuz my freehand is pretty good but it ain't THAT good--check out my chalkboard tips). I thought about writing something Valentines-y on it like "Love Lives Here" or "Happy Valentine's Day," but I don't really like words on the front door unless it's just to say "Welcome." I don't know why. It's just not my thang.

Finally, I attached the doily/heart combo with tiny dots of poster putty because I want to be able to use the chalkboard for other holidays. And there you have it. I love that it cost me $4.50 because I was able to scrounge around for stuff I already had to pull it off. And it took me no time at all!
