valentine heart wreaths {dining chair decor}

For Christmas this year I hung wreaths on the back of my bar stools with red ribbon. A simple idea, but it really made a big impact in my room.

My chairs looked so naked when I took them off January 1! And since I already fall into a depression when the Christmas decorations are put away,  I decided I'd try to find wreaths for Valentine's Day to replace them. It took some serious shopping (has anyone else noticed the lack of cute Valentine decor in stores this year?), but I finally found these little vine heart wreaths at a local wholesale decor place in SLC for $2.80 a piece. I was hoping to find berry heart wreaths, but I could not argue with the price on these babies.

After I hung them, they looked a bit plain to me, even with red bows. So I raided my Christmas decor, pulled apart a sparkly Christmas pick I found for 50% off after Christmas, and wired it to the wreath, mimicking the heart shape.

Then I cut a quick banner out of sheet music and wrote "LOVE" in the middle and traced it with red Stitckles glitter glue. The entire process only took about 40 minutes, but it made the impact on my kitchen I was hoping it would.

Finally it feels like love is in the air. . .at least in my kitchen. Which is quite a feat when you're feeding picky eaters {trust me, I know}.

Don't worry, I already found some spring wreaths to replace them next week. :)

Great decoration! I think I'll try to form such a heart out of our vine tendrils ;) Thanks!

Stacey, I saw these chairs at several furniture stores I looked in, so I went with the one with the lowest price! In Utah that was John Paras Furniture, but I also saw them at Country Furniture and Osmond Design. Wish I knew the name of the company that made them! :(
