Twig & Berries Heart Wreath

I’m a hopeless romantic – so naturally I’m a fan of Valentine’s day. Even so, it’s not typically a holiday I pay much attention to or overtly decorate for. Being a cheesy, lovey-dovey person in general, you’ll find hearts all over my home no matter the season. But this year, adding a few touches of romance & warmth to my decor has been a welcome distraction during these bitter cold, dead-of-winter days. My display of this burlap arrow & simple burlap & felt heart art is probably my favorite scene in the house right now, but this cozy little corner is a close second.

I moved my lazy-girl’s DIY framed chalkboard over to a new spot after Christmas (I can never leave anything in one place for long – it’s a problem), and I made this twig & red berry wreath for a rustic, valentine’s day touch.

To make the wreath, I used a heart shaped twig wreath (found at Michael’s) and some red berry garland I had in my Christmas decoration bins (we used it on our tree last Christmas).

Using wire cutters, I snipped off sprigs of berries, and stuck them into the twig wreath. It couldn’t have been easier!

The framed chalkboard is hanging on a nail, but I used a small command hook right above the frame to hold the wreath – tied up with some twine.

I’m playing around with chairs in this corner – and eventually hope to find a cool statement piece. For now, I’m using one of our dining table chairs – draped with an alpaca throw I bought in Peru & a burlap pillow we’ve had since our wedding.

One habit that I definitely inherited from my mother is the desire to constantly change my decor, rearrange furniture, and experiment with new ways of decorating with the things that I have. The framed chalkboard has been on three different walls since I made it, and I’ve loved it everywhere!

Do you constantly move things around in your home, too? Or do you stick with a great set-up once you’ve found it?

Well, here’s to a happy Monday and a great week ahead! Thanks for stopping by!

Easter Egg Wreath

Last week I shared my Lazy Decorator’s Guide to Easter Decor with Jelly Beans. This little project stepped it up a bit, however was still a super easy, 20-minute craft.

During a recent Target trip, this little felt Easter Egg garland found its way into our cart. (Translation: I am an impulse shopper and Target’s dream customer).

If I were not a lazy decorator, I could have made this myself w/ some felt in pretty colors & very patient cutting abilities. The cost of the felt would surely have been more than the $3.99 I spent on these pre-made, brightly colored eggs.

They came strung on some ribbon, but I cut them off the ribbon & grabbed a wooden wreath form (Michaels- $2.99).

Then I whipped out my trusty hot glue gun & went to town.

I did lay out the eggs before gluing to determine the arrangement/color order/how many would fit.

In about five minutes, my Easter Egg wreath was complete. I hung it on the pantry door in our kitchen.

Total cost of this project: $7.00!

I love the way the pretty spring colors look in our yellow kitchen.

What super easy & inexpensive Easter or Spring projects have you tackled so far this Spring?
