DIY Heart Wreath

I am also going to have a new segment on the blog. Tutorial Tuesdays- where I share something I have made during the week.

Remember this picture that I showed you on Saturday? I turned two old sweaters and a straw wreath into.....

This beautiful wreath!

 Here's how I did it. I cut up the sweaters along the seams in the bodice and the arms. Leaving me with two bodice pieces and two arm pieces. 

Then I started cutting circles, and cutting, and cutting. Until I had used up every bit of fabric.

Next I just folded the circle in half, then in half again and put a pin at the end and stuck it in the wreath. I wanted to have a striped effect in the pink and red but you could do any pattern.

After folding and pinning and more folding and pinning I finally finished. Phew! 

I absolutely LOVE how this turned out. It was really simple to make just time consuming. In total this project cost me about $10. I love having it up on my mantle where I can admire it during the day.
