Ruffled Heart

 I invited a few friends over so we could make these adorable ruffled heart wreath I found here.
 It said each heart uses about 3/4 of a yard but I think I placed my a little closer together so I think it was more like one yard per heart. Since I have double front doors, I had to make two. That was a lot of circle cutting!

 Here is the shelf above my TV. I made a 16x20 subway art print from this post and made my own heart garland. Michael's had 40% off punches and scrapbook paper so I couldn't pass it up!
I had a few circles left over, so I made the little pink ruffled ball with a 4" styrofoam ball. I'm off to make some pillows for my front porch bench!

Awesome job on the wreaths. I have 2 front doors too. Thinking about this wreath or maybe an X on one and an O on the other :).

Here's a link to Hobby Lobby for the styrofoam heart. I didn't see them at Michael's. How big do you cut the circles? I really want to make this! I may add some glitter too.

I just traced around the bottom of a drinking glass about 2.5".
