Two weeks ago I opened the door as our mail carrier was walking up our walkway. The first words out of her mouth were, "When are you going to hang your pistachio wreath?" She always comments on her appreciation for our holiday decorations and what happy memories they'll be for our children. To her enjoyment, the wreath is now hung, along with all of the other Valentine's Day decorations we've purchased and made over the years.
The most difficult part of making this wreath with my children two years ago was trying to find red pistachios...it's so simple! All you do is hot glue the nuts on to a heart (I simply cut ours from a substantial box we had lying around). Still, two years later ours is in great condition and is still striking against our blue door. It's sure to be enjoyed by us (and our mail carrier) for many more years to come.
