Valentine’s Day Heart Hanging

Hanging or wreath?  I wasn’t sure either!  I think it’s cute though, regardless of the title!

I started off by securing my yarn to my form with a small strip of hot glue.  I started at the top point (or “V”) of the heart, wrapping my yarn in a single layer.  I had to use glue to help hold the yarn until I got past to the curve of the heart and then it could hold itself!

I completed one side at a time and brought both sides together at the bottom point.  I then finished one side and then the other.  I had to overlap at the bottom to get the entire point covered in yarn.  I secured the ends of both pieces of yarn with hot glue.

Next I cut small pennants from the felt I had leftover from my X and O I made for my Fabric Wreath.  I also added red felt for this project.   I wanted to bring in another accent color and chose to go with turquoise!  I had this cute little ribbon left over from my packaging for my Hot Chocolate on a Stick.  It worked perfectly for the mini-bunting to hang across the heart.  I applied the pennants to the ribbon with hot glue.  I also tacked the ends of the ribbon to the back of the heart form with hot glue.

I hung it using a small loop of the ribbon, hot glued on the back, with a small clear 3M Command hook.  The hooks are used to manage/straighten your Christmas lights.  The heart is so light that one of these guys works great!   I hung it on my mirror in my entry way!  I {Heart} It…sorry I couldn’t resist!
