DIY Valentine's Day Heart Wreath

I am not awesome at making wreaths.  I am in awe of people who make ornate and beautiful wreaths from scratch.  However, I wanted to make a simple and sweet Valentine’s wreath to put a little love on my door.  The skill I do have is sewing!  By only sewing some sweet hearts, you can have a quick and easy Valentine’s themed wreath!

Materials:

  1. Cut 4 1” x 9” pieces of felt.
