Valentines Wreath out of Pajama Pants

     I've been stuck! I have seen so many amazing valentines projects and was so overwhelmed with the creativity of other bloggers that I didn't know what to do or where to start on creating a valentines project of my own.

     Imagine my surprise when inspiration struck as I was folding laundry! I had some old pj pants that were falling apart and knew they needed to be pitched! I was headed towards the trash can when I noticed all of the little hearts on them.....hmmmm, suspiciously valentines-ish. I'm a big fan of wreaths so I decided to see how I could use these pants to create a wreath.




     First I used the fabric as a backdrop and covered a foam wreath form with it. It's attached using stick pins.




     Hobby Lobby has plenty of pre-made felt hearts that were used to decorate the wreath with. The red hearts were glued to twine for a little banner, and finally scrabble letters spell out the message of the season.





     It's crazy how and when inspiration can strike! So keep your eyes open even during the mundaneness of chores!
