Thrifty Valentine Wreath

Wreath complete

A few weeks ago I was shopping in Big Lots and saw some packages of hot pink fuzzy yarn for a dollar each.  The yarn reminded me of a Pinterest inspired Spring wreath I made last year http://pinterest.com/pin/54324739225291735/ .  So I decided this yarn and some Dollar Store goodies would make an adorable yet thrifty wreath.

I picked up a willow wreath and some heart picks at the Dollar Store.  Of course I picked up a few other items while I was there but thats a subject for another post.

I started by wrapping the willow wreath with the yarn.

This part took the longest but I did it while watching one of my favorite TV shows.  Once the wreath was completely covered I tucked the end of the yarn inside the wreath and tied it.

and start gluing them to the wreath.

I found the wreath needed more color variation.  So I looked in my stash of Valentine decorations and found some red hearts picks I had purchased at the Dollar Store last year.   Once I glued all the hearts onto the wreath I was very happy with the results.   You could add a bunting to it or some bling, but I liked it simple.  Hope you like it too.  Not counting my stash from last year the wreath cost me $4.

Two packages of yarn $2 (about half a package left for future craftiness), willow wreath $1, and heart picks $1, now thats not bad.
