So I finally got around to making a wreath for Valentine’s Day! It worked out well because it only cost me $3…my husband was quite pleased!
Monkey Love Valentine Wreath
So you’re probably wondering how it only cost me $3 when the wreath it self costs more than that.
Well, remember that Disney Inspired Christmas Wreath that I made in December using the same wreath that I used for my $10 Thanksgiving Wreath? Well, I recycled it yet again! Yes, so far this single wreath has made it through 3 holidays…. I’ve challenged myself to see how many different wreaths I can make with this one wreath! St. Patrick’s Day is already brewing in my mind!
Alright, so I stripped down the Disney Inspired wreath all the way down to just the deco mesh. I found these adorable little monkey plushies at Dollar Tree along with the conversation hearts. And I had these diamonds left over from my wedding (yes, three years after the event- I knew I’d use them one day!)
I attached the monkeys to the wreath with my handy dandy glue gun. Always start with your largest items first and then add your items by size- this will help you with spacing and filling in any gaps.
So I added the conversation hearts next. These are actually little boxes but you can very easily glue them shut and no one will ever know.
I felt like the wreath still needed a little something so I added the diamonds…. you know me… I love some bling!
I think it turned out cute.
