I've never decorated at all for Valentine's day...so now that I have my own home it's fun to decorate for each holiday :)
This wreath was spurred by a Styrofoam heart form that I got at a yard sale in the summer for 50 cents! They had a couple for sale...I'm kicking myself now that I only grabbed one!
Supplies needed are a heart form, ribbon, a wooden dowel, and (not pictured) hot glue, felt, and craft paint. I got the dowel for less than a dollar at AC Moore. Score!
First thing I did was wrap my heart in a satin red ribbon, hot gluing to secure
Don't mind my messy craft desk in the background...
Next I painted the wooden dowel with some craft paint and then added on some felt accessories. I glued on a red rectangle of felt on the bottom and snipped it to a fringe like so:
And for the tip of the arrow I snipped some black felt out in a triangle and glued it on.
To secure the arrow to the heart I just hot glued it to either side of the heart form on the back.
Voila! Super easy and super cheap for me too. The craft paint and felt I had on hand, so really I spent about $5 dollars for this wreath. Score.
And it is only driving me slightly crazy that the red wreath and burgundy of my front door is clashing MAJOR. Note to self: make next years wreath PINK. I have clashing issues....
Oh well. Valentines Day you are welcome at my house even if you clash with all my decor!!
