When I was FINALLY done wrapping it in yarn, I cut out some heart shapes with my Big Shot machine. Of course you can always just cut out your own hearts! Then I used a hole punch to put 2 holes in each heart to thread the yarn through. Who knew a hole punch would go through felt?! Awesome!
Then I wove 2 pieces of yarn through the holes-this part was frustrating only because I didn't have a big enough needle so I had to push them through myself. I adjusted the hearts on the yarn and then cut the ends leaving about 6 or 7 inches of extra yarn on each side.
Then I put the heart banner on top of the wreath the way I wanted it to go, grabbed each end of the strings, pulled them to the back and tied it in a bow.
Once flipped back over, this is what it looks like!
So why did I tie it in the back, you ask? Well, what happens when I want a different look or want to decorate for another holiday or season? I most certainly am not spending another hour wrapping a wreath in yarn!! Nope, I'm just going to untie the banner, make another season appropriate banner and tie it on! Brand new look!
A very quick project! If you don't count the yarn wrapping part! :) And it literally took me about 10-15 minutes to make a second banner!
I made 2 of these to go in my dining room so I'll be sharing that pic soon! Hope you enjoy this project!
