10 Minute Valentine's Day Wreath

Okay, let's crank this out.
 Start with a leftover heart shaped wreath from the 90's and paint it any color you'd like.
I went with a glossy Rustoleum Black for some drama.
Set this on a cat to dry.
 Again, thank you for not calling the ASPCA.
You'll need:
Two bushes of blossoms from The Dollar Tree
Scissors
Hot glue
Wire
Some wired Christmas garland
 Cut the flowers from the bushes, leaving a little bit of stem for maneuvering.
 Stick the stems into the wreath and twist.
 Hot glue any wigglers into place.
 Trail the garland through the blossoms.
Keep it casual.

 Wrap it through for a nice, sparkly look.
 Add a hanging loop cut from wire, and you are DONE.
 It's a perfect shot of jazzy color and glitz for the big day, and it literally took 10 minutes,
minus the paint drying.
Now, I need to get on to tomorrow's project, which is a tad larger, so do excuse me.

Ooh ooh ooh! So pretty! I love the way you used the wired garland, looks like pussywillows or berries or something. Delicate, bold and huge impact. Nice work, lady!
