Chalkboard Heart Wreath

It was time to swap out my vintage holiday wreath for something different.  I knew with all the great wreaths I’ve seen with a picture frame as the base that I wanted to do something with one of the many frames I have.

Here is what I came up with.

Valentine Wreath by June @ I will craft

Do you love it as much as I do?

I knew I couldn’t spend a lot of money and wanted something heart shaped and just about did a happy dance when I saw a chalkboard heart in the dollar spot section at Target.  It was $2.50 and I knew it was perfect for a valentine wreath.

The chalkboard came with a felt covered chalk stick attached and ready to use to make a personalized message.

I used two sheets of the kraft valentine paper I picked up last weekend for less than 10 cents a piece to make a large rosette.  I had the frame on hand.  It was part of my gallery wall

100_9300 I thought “Be Kind” was a great reminder to see everyday.

My chalkboard wreath is now hanging on my door so please feel free to stop by and leave me a message. :)
