Valentine Door Wreath

Today I went upstairs to "clean" my craft room.  And then I saw my sad cork board and thought - "I want to put fabric on this and paint it up.  So I began scavenging through my fabric tote.  Next thing I know I am on the floor trying to figure out how to make a wreath I saw on Girl Creative.  It was so cute, but I wanted mine to be more full.  So I fiddled around with the hanger and some fabric.  I thought maybe extra fabric on the hanger before I started might make it fuller but then the fabric wouldn't slide.  Eventually I figured out that if I used a little wider fabric (then the ribbon she used) that it would make it fuller.  So then away I went.  {On the floor - because why would I clear off the table to do it.}
I cut my fabric strips about 1 to 1 1/2 inch by 6-8 inches long.  I used tulle and used about a 3 inch by 6 inch piece. 

Pink and white scraps of fabric

brown scraps of fabric
Basically once again all from scraps in my stash and a ribbon from a present from my daughter's birthday last week.
Here is an inbetween stage.  All you do is tie a single knot on to the wire hanger.  I turned my hanger around so the hook was in the top of the wreath.  I did have to do some twisting of the wire once I cut the hook off.

Then later that night I showed my friend Liberty and ta-da.  She made one too.

I think I like it better on a brown door. . . mmm should I paint my door to match. . . HEE!HEE!

I took probably less then an hour to make and it brightens up my door and Liberty's doors.  About the only time of year I can decorate with pink and not get weird looks from my hubby.  I'm liken' this Valentines decorating.  {Hopefully my house will get clean if I stay out of my craft room, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. hee,hee.}
