Valentine's Day Yarn Wreath

I'm finishing up my final DIY projects for Valentine's Day this week.  This project was inspired by this pin on Pinterest.  The original pin was linked back to Etsy, so there wasn't a tutorial with how to do it.  So I decided to create one so that you can all have an adorable wreath to hang on your door this Valentine's Day.  I love how this wreath turned out.  It may be my favorite one to date. 

How I Did It: 

The supplies I used were a foam wreath, red felt, white yarn, pink yarn, scissors, a heart tracer and hot glue.  

First, I covered the wreath with pink yarn.  

Next, I used my 2 inch heart cut out to make my felt hearts.  I traced them and then cut.  

I placed them on the wreath as I went so I didn't make too many. 
I ended up cutting out 12 hearts. 

I hot glued down the hearts, putting two dots at the top and one at the bottom of the heart to make sure it would lay flat.  

After that, I started wrapping the white yarn.  I did one direction first. 

Then, I did the opposite direction to create the criss cross look. 

Lastly, I added a banner to the wreath. 
I used leftover felt cut into diamond pieces.  

I used my Cricut to cut out 1 inch LOVE letters using white cardstock.  I glued them to the bottom of the diamonds.  
I attached one piece of pink yarn to the wreath, going straight across. Then, I folded the diamond over, hot gluing it together.
After all the diamonds are glued down, you're finished!   

Hang it up and show off your hard work!
