Fabric Rag Heart Wreath

I wanted to put out a heart wreath for Valentine's Day, but didn't want to spend any money. I had a heart form I made from a wire hanger, but I'd taken off the boa trim wrapped around it for a another project. I've made rag wreaths before, but with limited success. This one is my favorite so far. I had lots of fabric scraps, so I got out my circular cutter and cut pink and red fabric in strips of 1 inch x 5 inches. I double knotted each strip to the frame. This took a while, but I was relaxing while I watching TV. Once I filled up the heart, I attached a white pipe cleaner hanger. I think the key to a successful rag wreath, as most things in life, is to adopt a "less is more" philosophy when it comes to pattern and color.
