March is here!!!

Last Year I decided to make a new door decoration for Valentine’s Day. I was in the midst of re-decorating EVERYTHING and my house was torn to pieces. It was hard then to get to little projects. I tucked the “leftovers” away and held onto the discarded grapevine hearts for a year. A few weeks ago, I pulled them out and turned them into something for Saint Patrick’s Day.

I cut all the red and pink ribbon off and then cut the hearts from each other. I reconfigured their arrangement and wired them back together. After Christmas I try to hit the discount bin for things I can use toward other holidays. I get all things red to use for Valentine’s day and everything green I can find to use for Saint Patrick’s day. I snagged a spool of this shinny green ribbon for 25 cents. It added a great splash of color to my new shamrock. I think it looks cute on my all season chair planter.

Happy March!!!!

My dear why must you always show me up ... just playing I'm always just so amazed with all the amazing things you do. I've always loved that chair you do up!

You are so creative - I would have never "seen" the hearts in the shamrock - but how neat to transform and reuse between holidays!

I remember last years project - it really looked fantastically nice when you got done!

Hmm.. St Patricks Day is coming up - you can repurpose this one with a little effort and be good for a whole month!
