Here is a wreath that I found at a Thrift store for only $.75! I thought with Valentine's Day around the bend, I might be able to figure out something for it. One might wonder what in the world someone was thinking when they put fall decorations on a heart shaped wreath, but hey, each to his or her own!
I have loved the idea of using all those plastic bags from Wal-mart that you get for something besides my bathroom trash bags. I found this tutorial over at Us and Them. Now, in the tutorial, they used a clothes hanger to make the heart shape. I think mine must take up more space because of having to go around the wreath form, so I used way more bags than they did. Also, I found that all the ends of the bags really congregated on one side instead of all the way around. I think if it went all the way around it would lose the look of a heart.
It's perfect for the front door here in Wisconsin, because it's so wet and snowy all the time out there. I couldn't resist adding a few rosettes, either. (and Mr. Right said I couldn't leave it all white because it didn't look right.)
I used some leftover heart material from another project and some green bias tape for the leaves. I love this so much I've been telling all my friends to just drive by my house to see it! It only cost me $.75!
