Recycled Valentine Decorations

8:24:00 AM

A beautiful wreath or a lot of junk?

What began as an old duvet cover that was on its way
to Goodwill and an old broken grapevine  
Valentine decoration....

...turned lovely!

I ripped up the duvet cover into long strips and tied them around a wire wreath form...

I pulled the WELCOME hearts off the old, broken, grapevine Valentine decoration and wired them onto my new wreath...

And what about the leftover grapevine?

I wrapped scrapes from the duvet and the bows from the original decoration around the grapevine sticks...

...dipped them in a coffee bath to give them a primitive look....

...and made cute little rustic bowl fillers....

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
