I dare you



I dare you to find a better looking front door wreath for $7!
I saw this wreath at Little Scraps of Happiness and filed it in the back of my mind. (Be sure to check out the link to Design Sponge.... where the idea originally came from!) My non-Christmas, non-Fall wreath was faded and worn so I decided to check out Joanns for a new neutral wreath.
I didn't find anything I liked for less than $20 and remembered this gorgeous heart wreath!

I am NOT a "crafty" person... but I was able to create this wreath in less than 2 hours.
Really. You should try it! I may need to make a non-heart one for March-August! Now... what color(s)???

$2.99 for 1 yd of red felt (72" wide)
$3.99 for the foam heart
straight pins I found in my sewing room
equals this:

This is fabulous...and it would be a great way to use up some of the craft felt I have sitting around. I forget why I bought so much felt once upon a time, but I am trying to come up with ways to use it up!
