Gettin’ Crafty: A Valentine’s Wreath {or three!}

Valentine’s Day is my least-favorite holiday. I hate the commercialism. I hate hearts. And other than daisies, I hate flowers. Poor Shane made the mistake of getting me a heart-shaped necklace one year, and I have since given it to my girls.

I am just not a hearts-candy-flowers-type person.

So when I saw this gorgeous burlap heart wreath that Myra made, I was shocked that I wanted one. And not only did I want it, I wanted to make it. But I don’t like hearts, I told myself as I made my Hobby Lobby list.


The heart-love continued when Myra decided to post these beautiful satin hearts.

Be still my… heart.

So, not only had I fallen in love with a burlap heart, but I had to also go crazy over satin ones as well.

Believe it or not, my home is now graced with the presence of not one, not two, but THREE hearts. I have never decorated for Valentine’s Day, and now it looks like it exploded in my living room.

In fact, I love these hearts so much, I’m not ready to take them down!

Oh, and before you think I’m the worst mom ever for being such a Valentine’s grinch, I do let the girls make Valentine’s cards for their grandparents. And my sweet hubby and girls usually makes a nice meal and decorates the table with candles for me. So, I’m not a total grinch ;)

    I know what you mean. I’m not really a V-day fan either. I figure that me and Hubby show each other love every day and celebrate our anniversary, so why jump on a commercial holiday? I like that burlap wreath though!
