I {heart} My Interchangeable Wreath!


Do you remember my Basic Wreath Form?  (I think I'll name her her "Bess"!)





 Well, Bess just got a new outfit!  She's all decked out in snuggly red sweaters, just in time for Valentine's Day!  (It's been so cold here, she needs something warm!)

 
 
I was in Hancock Fabrics looking for quilting fabric and noticed these darling little ornaments in the Christmas Clearance section for only $1 each!  One dollar!  Who could resist?  They came home and became a Valentine's makeover!  I just used T-pin to add them onto the form along with one simple little white bow.  What do you think?

Oh, and can you give me some photo feedback, please?  Which edited photo do you prefer?  Do you like the darker one or the brighter one?  Sometimes I edit photos until I just can't decide!

  3. Oh this is my favorite makeover of that wreath yet! Don't you love finding an "after holiday special"?? Total score! I definitely like the darker picture better.

  5. Both pictures are attractive, but the darker one holds more instant appeal to me. :)

  6. Hi Marci - thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I prefer the picture on top because the colors are more vibrant. Love the wreath - I did something similar with gingerbread boys Christmas before last. Isn't it fun to create lovely things without spending a fortune?

  7. Turned out cute!! Both photos are nice, for grabbing the readers' eye (like on Pinterest where you're taking in a lot visual info at one time) I think the bottom photo works best.

  8. On the photos it kind of depends on what you want it to look like. The first one is lighter but looks more cherry red and like a graham cracker crust. The second one looks like you used a deeper red. If I were choosing for my own home, I would go with the second one but I imagine the first one is more true to what it looks like?

  10. The wreath is very pretty! I like the first picture best because of the lighter red of the hearts, but the darker colors of second pic make it look striking.

  17. A wreath that just keeps working all year round is my kind of wreath. I like the darker version of the wreath.
