Valentine’s Wreath and the Chocolate Winner

My Christmas wreath has been on the front door since I put it up in December.  It wasn’t so extremely Christmas-y that I felt compelled to take it down right away.

But with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I decided to make a change.  Red berries worked fine with the theme, so I just popped the silver ornaments off and started from there.

I used some heart picks from Dollar Tree, and ribbon and a large glittery heart card from Target’s Dollar Spot.

I shortened the picks down to a couple inches, and just stuck them in groups around the wreath.  Then I punched holes in the card and hung it in the middle with some of the ribbon.

After about $3 and 15 minutes, here it is hanging on the front door again.

I received my chocolates from Heart & Soul Candies last night, just in time to try them out before I announce the winner.  As expected, they were very yummy!

That's so cute! I cannot find my Valentine's decorations. Maybe I should just make some new ones...
