Sunday afternoon I went back years, experiencing one of the joys I remembered as a little girl.
Enjoyed those little girl feelings, felt from so long ago!
I loved paperdolls, always taking pride in cutting them out, as best I could. Carefully turning my scissors, trying to be perfect with every cut.
With Valentine’s Day upon us, I worked on a sweet “love” filled project, making a wreath from vintage valentines.
Some years back, I saw this idea at Williams-Sonoma, loved it, but too pricey for my budget.
Never forgot how cute it was, so I searched Pinterest, found some adorable old valentines, printed them out, and started to make my own wreath.
Used a styrofoam ring as my base, a cutout cardboard base would work too!
I glued some red paper heart doilies all around the base, placing them here and there.
What fun I had selecting from my valentine collection, deciding which ones to place around the heart filled base.
I used glue dots to attach the valentines to the doilies. These dots have glue on both sides, and also helped raise the valentines up a bit.
Added red ribbon to hang, that was all needed to complete.
Some craft folks use glitter and other embellishments, but I love simple, just the old valentines.
Oh my gosh, it is so cute!
Loved looking at all the old sweet valentines!
A simple fun project with such a memory. You all know I love memories!
After Valentine’s Day has passed, I will carefully pack up my wreath for next year, just as I packed up my precious paperdolls, in a shoebox, as a child.
