Super Easy Valentine's Day Wreath ~



As I was talking to my lovely Sister-in-Law last night, I began cutting out hearts. I don't know what it is about cutting out heart shapes, but it is like being a kid again. So after I had a pile of hearts, I began assembling a heart wreath. Here are the supplies I used.

Here is a wreath I picked up at Micheals awhile back that keeps transforming as the seasons change.


I attached it to my circular mirror in my kitchen and began inserting hearts. I just shoved the paper in between the grapevines - no tape or glue required here.



After I had all of my music hearts in, I inserted the red.

And after the red, I thought it needed just a bit more of "something". So I turned to my computer and printed out a few Valentine words and phrases.




So here was my kitchen corner before...


And after...

I posted over at A Soft Place to Land DIY Day...

And Get Your Craft on over at Today's Creative Blog!

I also added this project to a Valentine linky party over at Someday Crafts.

I just bought a couple of hearts like your little ones you have by your lamp. I haven't found the perfect spot for them yet...I might have to copy your idea! Thanks.
