My Heart Felt Wreath

 I followed the instructions - HERE - from The Idea Room, but I made a couple of tweaks of my own. 
Like instructed, I used 3/4 yd of pink felt.  Taking a teacup, I laid the open end and drew a circle onto a piece of card stock paper, for a template.  I pinned the template onto the felt and cut out SEVERAL circles. 

The Idea Room instructs you to pin the ribbon onto the back of the stryofoam, but I wanted to secure it a little better.  I cut 16 inches of ribbon, wrapped it around the top part of the heart and hot glued it in place as seen here.

I folded the circles in half and then folded it in half again, making a little rose tip.  I placed a straight pin through the pointed end of the halfed felt.  The Idea Room had their rose felt tips placed very close to one another, but I kind of like them ruffled out a little.  I think it's whatever you prefer. 

Katie and I love our finished product and it looks so well on our front door.  Katie's excited because I promised that after Valentine's Day, I would hang the wreath in her room on the wall.  She was so excited that she easily grabbed the wreath and began heading for her room with it.  I had to remind her that she could have it after Valentine's Day.  Of course, her bottom lip came out.  LOL!
