The Ever-Popular Heart Wreath

Is everyone making this wreath for Valentine's Day?
I kind of like that.  Nice affirmation of my good taste.   I love the look of this wreath.  It reminds me of rose petals. And it's easy.  I only had to cut out circles and push pins.  I can do that!  I first saw this wreath at The Idea Room.
I started out with a yard of red felt, a heart wreath, and a box of straight pins. I also got a chance to try out my new fabric shears.  (The baby safety plug is NOT part of the wreath....)
I traced a glass from my kitchen, and cut out a couple of circles at a time.  I kept thinking, "Okay, now this is enough circles."  But I used up every single scrap of red felt.  Not kidding.  Confession:  My circles looked more like lemons.  Or acorns.  Take your pick!
Once all those pesky circles were cut out, I took each one and folded it in half.  Then I folded that in half again.  I think it kind of looks like a fortune cookie, don't you think?!
I took a straight pin and secured each "rose petal" into the syrofoam heart and just started pinning away.  That was the fun part for me.
I was so excited to hang my finished wreath until I realized how terrible it looked on my orange door.  Talk about a clash.  Good thing this won't be my door forever.  Silly orange door.
Looks much better against a white background, don't you think?  My baby sure thinks so.  He is ready to tackle it.  It is on his blankey, so it's fair game.
