I’m decorated for Valentine’s Day but I didn’t have a wreath for the front door. My door has sat empty for over a week. Then I had an idea for an almost instant wreath pop into my head. I bought this yarn wrapped heart a few years ago for .50 cents. It would be super easy to make one though.

This awesome ribbon was wrapped around my Christmas pajamas. I love these thick ribbons and save all of them. I didn’t even have to cut it, but I probably should have ironed it.

I attached the heart to a black frame I had in my frame stash. I used a little piece of tape on the back of the frame to hold the ribbon in place.

Voila! A free frame in under 2 minutes and that included gathering the supplies.

And since my door is glass it has to look good from the inside too. Oh, so cute!

Hope you’re all having a Wonderful Weekend!

Agree with Julie, this is clever, perfect, and very thrifty. What a great use for that little yarn heart.

Leanne, you are just so clever! I love the frame- great idea! Hope the basement is going well ;)

That is super cute – I think I need to go figure out how to make a yarn covered heart like that. Maybe styrofoam….
