T-Shirt Valentine's Day Wreath

I loooove Valentine's day - mostly for the same reason as Easter - lots of chocolate and pink - what's not to like?

I don't have any Valentine's decorations, and after driving around seeing sparkly red and pink heart wreaths on neighbor's houses, I decided I needed a little V-Day festivity on my front door, too.

I didn't want to go out and buy one, so I figured out how to make one. I don't know how, because usually things like this don't just come to me, so I must have seen the idea somewhere along the way. I'm pretty sure I'm not that original when it comes to crafting things.

Anyhoo... Step 1: Find an old festive shirt that you got too chubsy wubsy to wear - mine was a plain pink tee from Victoria's Secret.

Step 2: Find a wire hanger in your closet that your husband's jacket is hanging on. Put said husband's jacket on the floor, and take the hanger.

Step 3: Have your Daddy-o help you untwist the hanger, and form it into the heart shape. Make the extra wire at the top go inside the heart as the point.

Step 4: Cut your tee up into little strips of fabric.

Step 5: Tie the strips allllll around the heart until it's filled up! I just kept the strips long, tied knots, and cut the extra.
