Valentine's Wreath

Ben says it looks *insert disgusted face*.  I wanted a little something fun for Valentine's Day.  To make this, I wrapped a straw wreath form with strips of quilt batting, then wrapped that with chenille yarn.  (I scored a whole skein for $.50 at a Michael's craft store that was moving and everything was 70% off!)  I made a few felt flowers, stuffed a few fabric hearts, and added a t-shirt flower I already had.  Everything is fastened on using safety pins.  The bow is made from ribbon I had leftover from my wedding. (Was that really 6-1/2 years ago?)

I didn't buy anything for this project specifically, so a homemade project for nothing!  My kind of decorating.

I love this! How cute! I don't have any Valentine's decorations so I really need to start making things like this. I would definitely hang this on my door with pride! Especially for that price, you can't beat it!

Thanks! This is my one and only Valentine's decoration so far, so don't think I'm supermom or anything! :)
