  1. Lora,
    This wreath is so beautiful and romantic! I had no idea the moss-covered grapevine was so structured.I can’t wait to give it a try.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m already thinking of what else I can make with it!

  2. Lora, every single part of this wreath – and that includes the beautiful weathered pink door you hung it on is wonderful.
    I didn’t know about the grapevine roll with the look of moss, and need some stat!
    I would be honored if you would consider sharing your wreath at my Friday with Friends link party.
    Many thanks

      Thanks, Rachelle! And thanks for the invite:)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Michelle! I just popped over and was greeted by my picture; how fun!

  3. Lora, love is imperfect, maddening, loving and comforting, plus more, but your heart wreath is adorable just as it is! I think that’s what I like best about all of our hearts, each is different in its own way, just as people are, just as love is… Love your door, too! <3

    Enjoy decorating for Valentine's Day! I'll be back to read your other Valentine's stories. 🙂

      You’re so right, Barbara! And I loved each different one, too:)

  4. It’a always a treat to see what you come up with Lora and you never disappoint! I’m adding origami flowers to my must learn how to do list. It seems to be getting longer with every post I’m seeing in the hop! Love the shape of your heart wreath too. Pinning!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, so many fun new creative things to learn, Michelle!

  5. I absolutely love your take on this project! Fantastic job! It turned out beautiful!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kori!

  6. You are so creative, Lora! I love the mossy grapevine that you used and your origami flowers are incredible!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Think this year’s Valentine’s have gone a little Springy, with that bit of moss (which I’m fine with;)

  7. Oh, I love your valentine wreath Lora, it’s so pretty! Your origami flowers are gorgeous too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Jayne!Those origami flowers are so fun to make:)

  8. Lora, I love your spin on this Pinterest challenge! I can never get enough of your creativity! I love your wreath and the paper flowers you made – simply stunning! It looks perfect hung on your green door!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I knew I had to make something cute to hang on that new door, Michelle! It’ll be my favorite canvas for awhile:)

  9. This scrapbook-paper-hoarder is heading off to see your origami flower tutorial! I love paper crafts, and I’ve been wanting to learn how to make these pretty flowers. That mossy garland is great too. I couldn’t find a grapevine wreath in the shape of a heart, and this would’ve done the trick. Thanks for the hot tip!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’ve got a great stash of patterned papers from my scrapbooking days, too, Crissy. Always good to find a new way to use them:)

  10. Looks like a couple of us loved the idea from Cottage on Bunker Hill. And the origami flowers look perfect for your home… so pretty! Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I was so happy to not have to buy a heart wreath!

  11. hi lora, i love the mossy grapevine? What a great idea! I need to find that mossy grapevine. It looks great! laura

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Think my mom got it at one of our local floral retailers, but Amazon had a similar one. I’m trying to think what else I can do with it for Spring!

  12. This is such a pretty wreath. I love your choice of materials. The flowers are fabulous.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katie!

  13. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Very unique and pretty, love the origami flowers.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marlene:)

  14. I’ve never heard of bind wire either! I like rustic now and again but I usually lean toward colorful and frou-frou! Your basic wreathe form coujld be used so many ways! I have a roll of mossy something–I’m not sure if it will work but I’m gonna dig it out and see if it’ll make a spring wreathe–I am SOOO sick of winter. Gotta get my to-mail Valentines made, too! Might tie in with paper flowers! Great bunch of wreathes–lots of ideas My paperwhites are only an inch tall; watching them has not helped them grow at all!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m jealous you’re doing paperwhites, Kathy! I’ve never tried them, and I absolutely love the fragrance.

  15. Your skills are amazing ! As is your creative mind. Even the shape of your heart wreath is wonderful. Love it all and how unique it looks. Just beautiful. Thank you for sticking with us this year. Pinned

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! I love being a part of your groups:)

  16. Lora, this is so creative and pretty. I love the moss covered wreath and those origami flowers are making me swoon. The papers you used are darling too. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Angie! Always love a good Valentine’s challenge;)

  17. Your wreath is so unique! Looks like Jennifer inspired both of us with the form 😉 Your origami flower are just stunning Lora!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! I love making flowers in the winter; tides me over till I can plant the real thing!

  18. Those origami flowers are STUNNING!

    I’d love it if you’d share it at my link party this week, too! Sundays on Silverado!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for the invite, Niky! Will try to remember;)

  19. Lora, I love the natural, rustic look of your wreath. I’m not familiar with bind wire so I’ll definitely have to check that out. Your flowers are beautiful and I’m so impressed with your skills. Happy Valentine’s Day.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Carol! This bindwire is hard to find; I got it on Amazon. I used to get it from the floral wholesaler. It’s strong yet light. I use it for everything.

  20. This is fantastic! I have never heard of bind wire but I need it in my life. Your origami flowers are fabulous!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes you should try some, Laura!
