A Valentine Heart

 
Last year, I was at Michael's and they had the remains of their Christmas items at 90% off.  I dug around in all of the bins until I had a cart full of red, burgundy, pink and pink with silver swirls Christmas glass ornaments. 
 
Then, I went back to the paper mache section and they had this large shaped heart for $2.99.
 
The pearls garland was from the wedding department.  In all, I spent about $10.00.
 
I started hot gluing the ornaments on the wreath and then filling in with the different sizes.  The last thing I did was add the pearl garland tucking it in where it was needed.
 
It made this beautiful heart which is about 20" in diameter.  It's considerably larger than the paper mache heart base because I glued ornaments to the sides making it larger.
 
A pretty Valentine's addition.
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

That is very pretty, I love the contrasting textures of the materials.

And a perfect color boost for this time of year.

What a great idea, Judy! It's too late this year but I'll try to remember this for next year so I can steal this idea. I don't normally decorate for any holiday except Christmas but all the blogs are inspiring me. j
