This project was really simple. First I took a foam wreath and wrapped it with twine. It was a little tedious, but it went fast since I did it while watching Whale Wars. (Confession - I secretly love the crazies on Whale Wars and spend my Friday nights watching their drama unfold. Yeah, I know, you are jealous of my super exciting social life. I hope that doesn't change our relationship.)
After I got the twine on the foam wreath, I cut out hearts from magazines using my heart cut-out-contraption. (Yes, that is its patented name). I cut out I-dont-know-how-many hearts, and I grouped them by color as I went along. I also cut out five hearts from the newspaper, just to give it a little contrast.
I took five hearts of similar color, folded them in half to give the petals a crease, then attached them together into a flower shape. I then glued the flower to the wreath. Simple! Then I decided that these flowers need a little dazzle.... so I dug out my vintage jewelry baubles and glued some to the center of each flower :)
Here is the wreath, in its new home on my back door. Of course, this first picture is
Here is a close up of some of the flowers.
I will stop inundating your brain with photos now :) Have a fantastic day!
