Valentine's Day Wreath

After taking down my Christmas wreath from our door, I thought I should make a Valentine's Wreath. As always, I was trying to stick to a budget, and managed to make the wreath below for $3. Yes, that's right, only $3. (Actually, less if you consider that I didn't use the entire piece of foam board and have left-over ribbon on the spools.) I bought pink & red organza ribbon - 25 yard spools for only $1 each, and the foam board was from Dollar Tree. If you want a little more control over the ribbon, you could buy wired ribbon.

Cut out heart shape from foam board. I first cut it a half-heart out of paper, then traced it onto the foam board. Make the width approximately 1 inch.

Cut ribbon into 12 inch pieces. I wrapped the ribbon around a ruler multiple times, then cut at each end as a quick way to cut the ribbons. Trip the ends into a V shape if you desire.

Tie your first color of ribbon around the frame, just barely overlapping.

Tie your second color of ribbon inbetween the other ribbons, so the entire frame is covered.

Tie on a ribbon to hang your wreath
