One of our favorite craft bloggers, Laura, just showed me this wonderful project she created to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I love the simplicity of this Valentine’s wreath. Laura was able to get this wreath for a steal. She snagged it at Michaels when they were having a 70% off sale. Awesome! The poor wreath had just survived the Christmas shopping holiday, so there were some spots on it that needed to be touched up. No problem, Laura just dabbed some our FolkArt Red Extreme Glitter paint on those areas. To see how Laura made this wreath check it out here on her blog, Katy Diddys.
