Valentine's Day Wreath

I don't have very much Valentine's Day decor, so I have been searching blogland for an easy craft project. I came across this cute and easy Valentine's Day wreath over at Living With Lindsay on her Tuesday Tutorials. She gives you step by step instructions on how to construct this cute wreath.

Since I am short on decor and the project looked fairly easy I decided to buy the supplies for two wreaths. One smaller and one larger heart-shaped wreath. Cara completed the smaller one and I completed the larger wreath. Erica and Ashlin tried to help Cara with the smaller wreath, but Ashlin thought the project was too hard and Erica lost interest.

Cara's smaller wreath. She used a calico small heart printed fabric.

I added the heart ribbon as a hanger and hung the wreath on our front door.

My completed larger heart wreath. I used a darker red fabric that had small black crinkle lines running through it. I bought all of our supplies at Hobby Lobby.

I hung my larger heart wreath above the mantel.

A closer up look at the larger wreath.
Next, I am working on another Valentine's Day project to add some more decor to the mantel for this holiday. Hopefully, this project will not take me too long and I will be able to share pictures in a few days.

Take care,
