Valentine's Day wreath

Wow!  I cannot believe it's already almost Valentine's Day!  I swear it was just Christmas!!  I am not complaining that time is flying though.  I am ready for SPRING!!!  I am so sick of this cold weather.  And I live in Florida!  I feel so bad for the people in truly cold climates.  Yowza! 

Anyway, I worked on a little Valentine's Day project the other day.  I realized I don't have any V-Day decorations.  I had a flag for outside and that was it!  So I decided to make a little wreath.  Nothing special.  But, I saw this wreath the other day on Tatertos & Jello:



Cute, right!?!  I already had a wreath form, but it wasn't heart shaped.  I looked for one on my next trip to Michaels but they didn't have one so I decided the one I already had was good enough.  It was just a flat wooden form.  It'll do!  So I grabbed some red yarn and wrapped that bad boy up!



Then I glued on some cream colored felt.

Then I used my Cricut to cut out some black vinyl letters that say "LOVE" and placed them on the felt.  I used a little extra glue on the back of the letters because vinyl doesn't exactly stick to felt like a charm.  I used some pink felt and a cute scrapbooking brad I had on hand to make a little flower.  Then I used some ribbon I had on hand to tie to the top and hung it on my door!  It turned out cute!




Pretty easy and pretty cute!  Doesn't get much better than that!

Ok, baby's awake from her nap.  Till next time.....
