This one came out simple looking, but it took me a while to make. I had some scrap fabric that I used for the orange and blue ribbon. I think making that is why it took me so long. My sewing machine is hidden away and it takes a while to get out, then I have to clear some space to sew, then pack it all up...it just takes way to much effort sometimes. I can't wait for the day when I have a dedicated craft room or even space. I'm tired of having to scrapbook on my kitchen table.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
