Valentines Day Hutch & Wreath Tutorial

Hello friends!

True confession time.

This Valentine's Day inspired decor that I'm
sharing with you today is from last year!

I had all the photos loaded & ready to go.
I just never posted it!
I was so surprised when I saw the draft listed.

I don't have a lot of Valentine's Day decor.
Just a few things.

This year, (well last year) I decided to make a wreath.

I really love how it turned out.
And it was so easy to make too.

Here's my tutorial on the wreath.
It's almost silly how easy it is to make.

I traced some heart shapes onto a piece of lightweight cardboard.

I cut them out.

I then took yarn, taped the end in place and began wrapping 
it around the shape.

I wrapped all willy nilly,
nothing uniform about it.

My intention was to wrap the yarn completely around
the cardboard so there would be no cardboard showing.
However, once I got going, I decided I loved
the cardboard peeking out behind the yarn,
so I left it like that.

I glued the shapes onto a grapevine wreath
and there you have it!

Don't you love an easy craft that
turns out better than you expected?

New Years & Winter Hello

Hello dear friends!
Happy New Year!

I can't believe I'm actually here, on the old blog, posting something.  
I have to admit, I'm a little rusty at all of this.

Winter is upon us here at Random Thoughts Home.
If you need proof, I will oblige....
this was taken this morning.

A good day to stay in with a warm blanket & a good book.

I have a few photos to share today.

The winter mantel is ready for the season.
It's always so hard to decide what to do after taking 
away all the Christmas decor.

Blue & white color palette...texture added with
fuzzy pillows, trees & pinecones.  

The dining room hutch & sitting room got a touch of winter, too.

I had a little fun with my Winter bird collection.

Wishing you many blessings in the New Year!
