I have a confession to make. I don’t particularly care for Valentine’s Day. It is, by far, my least favorite holiday. I’ll tell you another secret: I’m not really a “frou frou” kind of girl…more your little black dress and pearls type. I have enjoyed the sparser look after Christmas. But frankly, I couldn’t take another day of this
So I gave up my title of “the Grinch of Valentine’s Day” and went to Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, and “the closet”. I had seen a wreath that I admired in a local florist’s shop. A $79.99 Valentine wreath was more than I could justify..even if I loved the holiday.
Hobby Lobby offers a ten or fourteen inch styrofoam wreath. Don’t forget to print your 40 % off coupon if they are not on sale.
Dollar Tree has these right now. There are about seven roses per stem. Remember, you’re not looking for centerpiece quality silk flowers. I had a few stashed in “the closet” from Walmart also.
I whacked and clipped until I had a pile of red, pink, and white rose buds with about 1 1/2 inch stems. Then the fun began.
“ What is this?”, Beloved asked. He knows this is not my normal style.
I even added a few Valentine picks from Dollar Tree. You might like a bow….I’m already over my “frou frou” limit :).
