IC#2- Heart Wreath Take 2- The Felt Edition

Last time on Iron Craft, I created a paper wreath.  Sadly, this wreath was not up to the job.  Cute as it was, it began to bend in ways that a heart should not.  Rather than cry over a broken heart, I chose to make a new wreath for this week's Iron Craft theme, hearts and flowers.

I kept it simple and bought a pack of felt hearts from the craft store.  They are made of the stiff felt and came in several Valentinesy shades.

I practiced a few layouts and decided to go for a layered look with a central heart, almost like a flower.  I then started hot gluing the whole thing together. 

Once assembled, I hot glued two lengths of red ribbon to the back and tied them together in a bow.  This created a hanger, similar to the one from my last wreath (actually, exactly like it.  I took the ribbon from that project and reused it)

That's it!  I hope this wreath is up to the challenge.  I'll keep you posted on any problems it encounters :)

    I love paper, but I've run into the same problem of it just not being sturdy enough for some jobs.


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
