Ruffled Heart Wreath for Valentines Day

I never seem to have enough time to make elaborate and beautiful wreaths, but I hate it when my door is blank and boring. So this is the wreath that I came up with for Valentines Day. A simple Ruffle Heart Wreath. It only uses a little bit of fabric and a wire hanger. Simple right?!? The bonus: its cheap!

My 4 year old was bored the other day so we made this fun and quick ruffled heart wreath for Valentines day.  It was really easy and we had everything on hand that we needed.

First I took 2 wire hangers, cut of the hanger part on each of them, and then secure them together.

I zig-zag stitched over some crochet thread (making sure to not catch the thread in your stitch) the entire length of your fabric.

Then pull on the thread and it will ruffle your fabric.  I stitched in the middle of the strips of fabric.  Make sure when you are pulling on your thread to not pull the thread out of your stitches.

Then hot glue your ruffle onto your wire hanger.
