A Valentine's Quickie

I made another wreath...what were you thinking?
I first saw this idea over at Katie's blog and decided to make one for myself.
To make one, you'll need 12 strips of 2x11 inch decorative paper. Double sided is nice but I used single sided and I think it looks just fine.
Fold the strips in half and connect the open ends together in a heart shape.
I used these glue dots to hold it together.
Can you spot the dot?
Then you stick all of the hearts together.
When it hangs, it's more of an oval than a circle.  You may want to use fewer hearts if you want it to be more circular.  Attach a ribbon and hang on your kid's bedroom door.
They'll love you for it.
If you're new here, my other wreath is right here.
And one more addition to my Valentine's Love Bird Mantel.
 I added another set of letter blocks to spell out...
"tweetie".
Busy busy week...got a party to throw!
