Valentine Card Holder

With cupid fast approaching, I began to notice how quickly I change my front and back door appearances. Ahh..if only the rest of my home received such face lifts...



This, oh, so simple Valentine Card Holder is made from a few wooden products, a little paint and some ribbon.



Start by painting the wooden wreath ring the color of your choice. While that's drying begin hot gluing your strips of ribbon to one side of your clothespin.



Once the wreath ring is dry, hot glue the clothespins to the wreath.



I found this fun Valentine palette at Michaels for a $1.00 a spool! Any pattern would be adorable.



I LOVE anything vintage, luckily I found these magnificent Valentine cards at a neat little store here in town..hated to unwrap them, but thought they were too perfect! Have a look at the great detail!!



I, of course am fond of the cute little teacher one :)



Lastly, I cut a piece of cardboard for the center of the wreath into a heart and made a bow for the holder. I placed my wreath on my door and have been admiring it ever since.

I'll be linking up the these parties this week! Have a great weekend!

Cute! Love the pins :)

I did mine like this, http://scissorsandawhisk.blogspot.com/2011/01/ribbon-photo-display.html. I hung the photos from a red ribbon and they were attached with white pins that had pink hearts. :)

So cute! I love all of those vintage cards too, you obviously couldn't just let them sit in the plastic now could you?!
