Monogrammed Valentine’s Wreath

DIY Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI’ve been waiting and waiting…and waiting some more. What for?

The sun.

I’ve had my monogrammed valentine’s wreath on my door for over a week but have not ventured out to shoot any photos because the skies have been grey and dull.

Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI finally had to just go for it.

These pics are OK for now but I’ll be back with better ones when I show you the sitting area.

At least I hope they are better…

Here’s where this wreath started. It was the first wreath I made after painting my front door blue. If you want to read more about the story of my house, I talk about it in this post.

Spring WreathI took out the all the blue flowers…and made use of them in my silver pitcher.

Buffalo Check and Matelasse from On Sutton PlaceI added some little red flowers and a grain sack heart.

Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI’ve had the wood monogram forever…at least over a year but never had the right wreath or basket to use it. Honestly, I had forgotten about it. When I was looking for the red flowers, there it was and it was like I had hit the jack-pot. I gave it a quick coat of Annie Sloan Old White and wired it on. If you want an initial of your own, I found this seller on Etsy and they are very reasonably priced.

As luck would have it the sun is shining as I write this and the skies are clear. It’s freezing though so I’m not sure I’ll get outside for those pics I promised. I hope the skies are blue where you are…see you soon!

    Just love the wreath!

    And I am newly in love with Matelasse and am reworking my bedroom around a coverlet I found at Tuesday Morning and a new iron bed ordered from Wesley Allen. Your site has provided lots of inspiration for new pillows to go on the bed!

    I thought I had signed up to received emails announcing new posts, but I don’t seem to be getting them. Can you help me got on that list?!?!

    Your wreath is beautiful! I think I shall make myself a heart today and add it to the wreath for my front door, but I need more flowers first. My Christmas wreath is still on my door, I live on Christmas lane, all of the Christmas lights are still burning on my street every night, I love it!
    The monogram makes it especially nice!
    Hugs, Cindy

    Ann, your wreath is so cute. I love it. It’s colder than a can of kraut here, it’s just miserable, so I know what you mean. 6 degrees this morning! Brrrrrrrrrrrr, I’m so ready for Spring, have a wonderful weekend.

    Ann, that was such a great idea to paint the initial Old White because it really stands out against your beautiful blue door! And of course I adore that grain sack heart! We’ve had some grey days lately, too, and lots of wind. But today we had sunshine, but it was very cold for South Carolina. I’m yearning for spring, too!

    Your wreath is beautiful Ann! I love the monogram.

    I was out early this morning, taking a picture of the back porch. We are in the middle of a project. It was 8 degrees and the sun was shining. For the rest of the photos, I stayed indoors and took pictures through the closed door.:-)

    Beautiful front door wreath! I just added my 1980’s neighborhood craft Valentine material heart to our front door this morning. There were close to 8 members back then and we made so many neat items. How time flies by!

    I love how you reused that wreath! Adding the little heart and monogram (which is my monogram too) makes it have so much personality. Sounds like you’re having the same weather as we have here today. It’s very cold, but dry and sunny. Bundle up!

    beautiful wreath, I’m glad you have the sun even if it is cold, I also love the blue flowers you put in the vase beside the yellow print fabric, I love yellow with blue, have a super duper day, enjoy the sun!
