DIY Handmade Valentine's Day Flower Wreath

Although I'm by no means a huge proponent of Hallmark holidays, Valentine's Day gives me another reason to spread love and make stuff! Yes, we should spread love every day, especially to those we care about, but I think the world could use another excuse to express appreciation and kindness, right?

For Christmas, my aunt gave me a Wreath Recipe book, on how to gather supplies for and assemble seasonal wreaths and other floral arrangements. So, last Sunday morning, while most people in the US woke up excited to watch the Super Bowl, I was eager to go to my farmers market to get flowers for this project.

There's a lot of room for creativity and personalization with this project, so definitely think outside the box once you start decorating them!
