Valentine Tulle Wreath
I enjoy making these tulle/netting wreaths for all the holidays. Probably the longest part is getting your wire hanger in the shape you want. I attempted to make a heart with the hanger.
I used 2 strips of white tulle to each red one. (I thought that I had bought another spool of the red but apparently I did not. The red one I had was already opened so I didn't know how long it would last and it came out just right using these proportions.) I cut the tulle and put it on while watching a TV program. That is the nice part of this type of project!
Click here to get to my previous post that has the tutorial and photos of the ones that I made for Christmas, Fall, and 4th of July.
I ventured out to get a photo of the wreath on the door with all the snow.
Here are more of the snow pics from Saturday. We already had some snow but received quite a bit in just a few hours on Saturday afternoon. Many of you have a lot more than we do -- and then there are those of you that have none!!! I am ready to visit the places that have none!!!!!
Now, on the days when Lucy has been a bit naughty I get out the spray water bottle. Sometimes she just squints her eyes at me and I don't do anything -- just the threat of it!! But, she was chasing Ricky a lot one day (although in retrospect it may have been deserved but hard to tell yet!!) and I went chasing Lucy with the spray bottle. She is sooooo smart that she thought she would hide from me -- too bad she isn't smaller!!!!
Can you see Lucy peeking out on the right side and her tail towards the left? I was laughing so hard!!!!! She hid between the vertical blinds and the sliding glass door - you know how much room that has!! Like -- couldn't she find a better place??????
I am linking this to Boogieboard Cottage's Masterpiece Monday. You can find more ideas here.
I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
