Paper Doily Wreath


I can't resist paper doilies, can you?


From the Dollar Tree - where else?

I used them to make this little Valentine wreath.


 I used part of a package of Large and part of a package of medium paper doilies. One layer of each size, plus a couple extra where I felt it needed it.

 I rolled the doilies into cones then glued them to a foam board circle. Cardboard would work just as well. I had the foam board on hand so I used it. A medium doily, backed by a hear cut from white card stock is glued to the center, with a bow of cream colored ribbon and a loop of ribbon on the back as a hanger.

It is difficult to see in the pictures, but the word Love is embossed in the center of the heart.

I have been into white, white, white, lately, but I did clip some  vintage Valentine cards to the bunting swaged across my office window. 

The Mother Valentine has the  sweetest verse...

My Mother”. . .
There’s no sweeter phrase for lips or heart to say
It brings back joyful memories of many a by-gone day
It tells of cheer and gentleness And of love year after year
And my sweetest Valentine Greetings go to YOU,
My Mother Dear !
