Wreath of the month: February

Happy last day of February! I had this month's wreath up by Valentine's Day but just never got an opportunity to take pictures of it, so here you have it on the last day of February!

In keeping with a Valentine's Day theme, I wrapped a heart shaped styrofoam wreath with grey yarn, then cut out and stitched together a felt heart, stuffing it with cotton balls. Then the wreath was hung from a red and white ribbon that took some maneuvering to get it wrapped around and fairly straight.

The breakdown:
  • Heart wreath form: $2 (used another 50% coupon at Michaels!)
  • Grey yarn: free (leftover from another project)
  • Red felt, thread and ribbon: free (leftover from other projects as well as years of hoarding)
  • Total cost: $2
  • Total time: 1.5 hours (but once again spread out over several intervals, making it seem more laborious than it really was)
Closeup of the final product:

And a little stitching on the back of the heart:
