I "HEART" Pearls Valentines Wreath

I am linking this post to Boogieboard Cottage for Masterpiece Monday. I am also linking Paisley Passions Thrilling Thursday. Also linking to Faith, Grace and crafts for Pearls and Lace Thursday .

     This wreath started with a bunch of tiny bouquets of roses and pearls I got quite a while ago from a Church bazaar. I love pearls, not too crazy about roses eventhough I am a florist. I would rather have a bouquet of white stock and electric blue delphinium.
     I had a straw wreath that was covered in green plastic, so I covered it with white satin ribbon. I did not like the way the ribbon overlap showed, so I then wrapped the ribbon with white tulling.
     I also had on had some red sheer ribbon that had a little glimmer to it that was left over from Christmas. I took the little bouquets and and added 3 loops of the sheer ribbon around each bouquet. I then added these bouquets to the center of the heart.
     I also buy a lot of jewelry at auctions and yardsales. After making the wreath, I wanted more pearls to go with the pearls in the little bouquets. I found this 8 strand pearl necklace and attached it to the bottom.
      Most of what I used, I already had on hand. I am not a red and pink kind of gal, so I will make me another Valentines wreath with white orchids. I will just add this red one to my flower shop. Thanks for stopping by!!! ~~Sherry~~
