heart wreaths

Last January, the three of us girls got together with a DVR'd episode of Grey's Anatomy... felt... styrofoam hearts... scissors and straight pins and got busy making these super cute Valentine's Day decorations from The Idea Room. We cut sooo many circles out that night, but it was sooo worth it. We each did our hearts a little bit different...

    From then on I was hooked on Amy's blog! And I could go on and on about how stinkin' adorable yours is too!

  5. I love how ruffly they are. I was looking for a wreath idea for Valentines day. This will be my first year doing wreaths for anytime other than Christmas. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I made a white round one for my mom for Christmas this year (that I first saw on design sponge). It turned out really well & now I want to make more, but I had a worn spot on my pinky from the scissors for weeks... not sure I'm ready to endure that again ;)

  7. Cute wreath! I LOVE Valentines day!!! I have a tutorial on my sidebar on how to make a Valentine Chair Backer. A Pouch for all your valentine goodies. I love them. Here is the link http://ourscoop.blogspot.com/2009/01/valentine-chair-backers.html

    I just found your blog and became a subscriber. I just want to say THANK YOU for allowing your blog to be fully read in google reader. I hate it when I can't view blogs in reader. I don't have the time to go to every blog page.

    Your blog looks fun! I want to brave that heart wreath! I wonder if I can cut out those felt circles with my cricut.

  9. I did make one. I made mine all in one color and I was able to get the deep burgundy that Amy used. And it started a wreath obsession. I now have several wreaths for my interior door. I am always working on a new one. Much to DH's dismay. LOL

    I just was in my son's closet this morning and saw the wreath. I've got to get it out to add some color to all that WHITEness outside!

  32. I just finished making mine & I love how it came out. I went through almost 2 yards of felt. I think I probably used more than was necessary but I love how it turned out! I'll be posting pics on my blog... http://angelasheartwork.blogspot.com

  33. Came across these when I was doing a search on your blog for Valentine's ideas. They are all so lovely. Definately worth your hard work.
    BTW in the background of Jennifer's pic there is on display "la la love you". Love it! Where can I find a copy of this? Can you please let me know: cropcafe(at)bigpond(dot)net(dot)au
