January project: Valentine's Day Wreath
The process for this was inspired by my no sew blankets. You can see some that I've made HERE. The heart frame is just a wire hanger. I usually don't keep wire hangers around because I really don't like them for hanging my clothes, but I just happened to have a few. The first one didn't turn out so well. It was hard to bend. The second one I tried was much easier. I just bent it into a heart shape with the hook part at the top. I just cut up some fleece scraps into strips, then tied them in a knot around the hanger. Pushed them as tight together as I could, and voila! For the X and O, I cut the letters out of cardboard from a cereal box, Daisy painted them white for me, then I painted random, red dots all over them. I got the idea for the X and O from someone on Pinterest and then just put my own spin on it. I couldn't find the source to link back to, though.
So that's it! It's been really windy here lately so I've had to bring it inside after finding it on the ground a few times, but I really love how it looks on our door! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
