Do you remember my coffee filter wreath from Christmas of 2013? (I know. That seems so long ago.)
I hung it on our swinging kitchen door during this past Christmas. Since it’s not all that Christmas-y, I decided to enjoy it a little longer.
With heart month upon us, I wanted to somehow easily transition the wreath for Valentine’s.
During Christmas when I made the Ribbon Christmas Tree Decor, I used one in the two-pack of burlap squares from Wal-Mart. I scavenged through my old buttons to create a design for the square.
I really wanted to use that larger vintage button PAM gave me. It was begging to be an “O”. I just needed to line up the smaller buttons for an “X”.
My first thought was to hot-glue everything. But, that would make my burlap gunky when I remove the buttons later.
Sewing was easy – just one thread swooped through two holes per button. A simple, primitive look.
Red or pink buttons would be beautiful, but I didn’t have enough of either.
Just as with the Pom-Pom Initial yesterday, I almost feel like I’ve cheated.
All you have to do is open the coffee filters and wedge the square inside. This is so easy, and very quick.
I had originally thought to hang the square from the wreath somehow. But that wasn’t necessary at all.
If you have a grapevine wreath, you could wire a burlap square onto it.
After heart month, the little XO is removable, no problem.
What do you have to transition for heart month? Anything need a little XO?
