Valentine’s Day Porch Decor & Wreath

I don’t know about you, but my house is down right depressing after I take down all the Christmas Decorations.  So I put up some Valentine’s Day decor up—starting with the porch.  Something fun to come home to when I run errands.Valentines Day Porch

I’ve never had a good Valentine’s Day wreath, so I started with that.  I love yarn wreaths and I had the perfect thick purple yarn in my stash. 

Things didn’t go quite as planned. 

I just wanted to do a big cute bow—but I thought it looked too plain.  Yarn wreath with bowYarn wreath with bow

A few days later I found some pink and purple glitter stems marked 90% off (making them like 14 & 19 cents each!) at Michael’s so I took down the wreath to add them for extra embellishment. 

And well that’s when things went really wrong…broken yarn wreath


Lots of hot glue and duck tape later I had fixed it and then I could add my extra embellishments.

And now I love it!

But then my porch pots were looking sad without anything in them so I got this crazy idea to make a heart pillow and put it on a stick…

I don’t have a pattern but this is a picture of how I cut and stitched it together…

  1. Your porch is beautiful with it’s simple yet elegant decorations. I have to tell you how much I love the wreath on the stunning red door. I think you can also add surfboard signs to your decorations as an alternative to name plates there outside.
