Hearts and More

If you follow any blogs you have seen a lot of valentine's day wreaths.  I love the idea of it and wanted to make one two myself.  My goal recently is to go to the fabric or craft store as little as possible.  With Christmas, bills, and car repairs my budget has been reduced greatly.  My mom has a saying on her sewing room wall that says', "Use it up, make it do, or do without."  So my goal for the wreath was to use what I have.  I'm not too worried about it because I have over six boxes of material in my sewing room closet. 

So on to the craft.

Supplies:
Nylon Chiffon (leftover from making a tutu) or any fabric
Wire Hanger
Ribbon


Step 1-Cut fabric into 3-4 inch strips


Step 2-Cut the strips into 4 inch pieces.


Step 4- Tie each piece on to the hanger


You will want the knots to be on the back so the ends can crowd in the front.  Keep pushing the knots together to make a tight fit.


Step 5- Shape hanger, cut off excess hook.  Bend the rest to form a little hoop.  Tie ribbon on and hang up or display.



Happy Valentines Day!
