Vintage Valentine Wreath

I made this Vintage Valentine Wreath today! 

It was soooooo easy!

You can download the cute vintage Valentines on Heather Bullard's blog (here).  

I stick glued each sheet of Valentines to a sheet of card stock.

Then I cut around each Valentine with my fancy scissors.   

Next I added Martha Stewart glitter to the Valentines just using a glue stick.  

I found a piece of thick cardboard and used one of those metal compass thingies (with the pointed sharp end and the pencil at the other end) to trace two circles.  

I cut out the narrow band of circle and stick glued a piece of red scrapbook paper to it.

I positioned the Valentines on the circle and use glue buttons to attach them to the cardboard circle.  A few of the Valentines were attached using foam tape to raise them up.  

I put a piece of the foam tape on the back of the cardboard to attach the wreath to our fireplace brick.

What do you think? 

Is this cute or what?

I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself and it was super simple to make.  

Hop on over to Heather's blog and try it out yourself.
