With its soft, pink flowers and angular square shape, this Valentine’s Day wreath by Nicole at Thrifty Decorating is full of lovely and unexpected juxtaposition.   The technique for making the flowers in pretty simple and straight-forward; if you don’t have the time or patience to make enough of them to cover a whole wreath, she also offers a list of smaller, quicker projects using the same roses.  And if you only want to make a few of them, I think they would make a great alternative to a bow when wrapping your next gift!  [how to make a Valentine’s Day rose wreath]
