Valentine's wreath!

Hello my  friends,
The weather has been very cold and grey in Greece for the last month and winter has certainly justified its name and reputation this year!

But though gloomy and frozen the landscape might be, the anticipation of warmer days and the abundance of Spring   blooms and greenery is omnipresent.
I bought a small bunch of anemones the other day, which are ‘February flowers’ and remind me of long walks in the country picking wildflowers and having picnics under almond trees in full bloom, when I was a little girl. I love anemones and all the lovely memories that bring with them!
February is around the corner  and apart from dreams for the resurrection of mother Nature and  trees full of  tiny buds and leaves, it’s the time  that hearts and deep red colour  appear  again everywhere around the  city , and  Valentines get ready for their celebration.
So, today’s little make I want to share with you is a Valentine’s  wreath , which can be used all year round if you have a sentimental heart J.
It is very easy to make and costs almost nothing.
First you cut out  pieces of cardboard  in heart shapes.  Cut out different sizes so that the wreath looks better.
 Wrap wool around the heart shaped cardboard  and  make a fluffy woolen heart .

Stick the hearts on a wreath which you have adorned with some ribbon and bows made of wool . I used three colours for my wreath: light pink, ‘salmon pink’ and ‘purple pink’.

 Make as many hearts as you like and scatter them around the table where you will have your Valentine’s meal.
 You can also put them in a bowl or little tray to decorate your sofa table or you can stick them on   a wooden frame with a picture of you and your loved ones.

Anyway, just play as much as possible with the wooly hearts and have the best of times  during the whole month of February!!
My love to all,
Tina xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
