Valentine Polka Dot Wreath

I have to admit - Valentine's Day isn't one of my favorite holidays. I've never really gotten into it that much, and I certainly don't do a lot of decorating. (Maybe because I usually have half my Christmas things still out? LOL.) Anyway, our entire collection of Valentine's decorations are in a shoe box. A kid-sized shoe box. I don't really feel the need for much more, but I have seen a few cute ideas on Pinterest & other blogs, so I decided to make this heart-shaped wreath.

I started with a foam heart from Hobby Lobby (Using the 40% off coupon, of course!)

Then I took some scrapbook paper & cut it into strips:

Added a little Mod Podge:

And wrapped the heart up with the paper strips:

And then I added a cute little fabric flower. 
(If you're new to my blog, I have a tutorial here on how to make the flowers).

I also had a little fun with these photos on Picnik before it's gone. (So sad about that!)
