Here we are in early February, and I am hanging on dearly to our three Christmas Wreath Tradition on the front door of our home here in Maine! With a little tweaking of the bows and the addition of an old pair of ice skates, these old Christmas wreaths are going to be turned into Valentine’s Day Wreaths!

Thrifty Ice Skates, Pink Flowers, and Snow
Making a few simple changes to transform one’s old Christmas wreaths into festive front door Valentine’s Day Wreaths is so rewarding and fun. I hung these old ice skates that I found thrifting to the middle of the three wreaths with wire from a craft store and I found the bows on Amazon to match the Essex Green House Trim.
Soon after hanging, we welcomed in a large snowstorm here to New England. This is one of the many reasons I try and keep my outdoor decor simple and durable! Look how the simple pink faux flowers just pop in that winter snow.
This little switcheroo cost me absolutely nothing other than the bows and thrifted ice skates. I found the pink faux flowers in the home’s attic.
When the winter storm was over, it warmed up quickly. The icicles on the wreaths started to form and I became anxious for a beautiful bouquet of indoor flowers.
You may see more of the aftermath and scenery of our winter storm by visiting Beautiful Snow Day on the Seacoast post. You will not want to miss the video of the coastal Maine surf!! Mother Nature can be so very dramatic.
