It never fails, once the Christmas decor is packed away, my mind automatically shifts to the next holiday. Do you do that too? I’m already thinking about pretty pastels and if I should host another Valentine Card-making party this year. Once the red and green is all put away, I get excited about a new color palette!
For this project, I was rummaging through my bin of vintage scraps. Those little bits and pieces that I just love and will find a place for at some point. I think I now have about 3 good sized boxes of these scraps, and doodads, so I better get busy finding “good places” for them! These little wreaths use very vintage gold tinsel garland, vintage beads from a 1960s necklace and a vintage plastic bell.
The beads have a such a rich color to them! To tie in the bell a bit more, I added a bit of glue to the bottom and dipped it in a mixture of vintage glass glitter.
These “sweet” wreaths will look cute as an ornament on a holiday tree, or tied on top of a box of chocolates. Or, on top of a pretty, organza draw string bag! If you would like a vintage wreath of your own, and one to gift away, these are now available in the Etsy shop HERE. They look like little confections don’t they?
And, I couldn’t resist posting this old valentine that I found in my stash. I think its from the 20s or 30s…regardless of the decade, I don’t think any female would appreciate being referred to as a “load of love!” Ha…makes me smile.
Hope you have a super weekend and make time to get crafty!
