Valentines day is one of my favorites. I love the shape of hearts and have been drawing them, cutting them out, and looking for just about anything heart since I can remember. So when I saw this great heart wreath over at Little Birdie Secrets a couple of weeks ago I thought I would try it. You do not have to be "crafty" to do this project, even children can do it. We did something very similar with our Girl Scout Troop out of Styrofoam balls back in the day.
Here is what you start with: Styrofoam heart, glue (place glue in a swallow bowl), sharpened pencil (a large knitting needle works well too), and 1 1/2 yards fabric cut into 2" squares (I used 3/4 of a yard of two different prints).
Wrap the square of fabric around the end of the pencil and dip it into the glue.
Then poke the pencil down into the Styrofoam heart.
Keep repeating that until the heart becomes full of fabric squares. I did this last night while watching American Idol. I guess it took me about an hour and half if you are the kind that needs to know time. I love how it turned out and it looks great on my red door for Valentine's day.
