A heart-shaped Valentines Wreath


Okay, so I have like zero Valentines decorations. Nothing. Nada. So, I was thinking about making a wreath for the door. I liked the look of the rag ones I have seen. I'm trying to "use what I have" to craft method, so instead of buying a wire wreath I took this baby:And bent it into a rough heart shape.
Then I cut up a whole bunch of pink fabric into strips (approx. 1" by 7", but they don't have to be exact). I used old shirts, ribbon, fabric I already had, and baby clothes I had been given but were stained.

Then I tied them around the hanger wreath. It took awhile but turn on a good show and tie away! Wahlah! Number two on my list complete. And I didn't have to buy a thing!
See what you can get done when you focus!
