Heart Wreath: Decorate to Celebrate Challenge 17: Valentine's Party: Design Team Project

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  Our new challenge is to create something for a Valentine's Day Party.  Be sure to stop by and check out all of the projects by the design team and enter your party decoration here: http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/.

For my project, I decided to make a heart wreath decoration.  I think it turned out nice and will make a great Valentine's Decoration.
I started out with a heart shaped wreath form from Hobby Lobby, red yarn and the hot glue gun.
 I used the hot glue gun to secure a piece of yarn to the wreath and then began wrapping it tightly around the wreath.  I used the glue periodically to secure the yarn and continued to wrap.  The curves made it a little bit tricky and it took longer to wrap than your normal circle wreath.
Here is the yarn after it was finished being wrapped with yarn.
I then took a piece of fringe white ribbon and pinned it to the wreath to make a loop to hang it up.  I wanted the heart to hang to the side, so that is why I placed the ribbon where I did on the wreath.
Finally, I used the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge to cut the word love out of white cardstock.  I cut it out a couple of times and glued them together to give it some stability.  I then hot glued it to the wreath to finish it off.
