Pom Pom Hearts

I love decorating for Valentine's Day.  

I enjoy having the red and pink colors pop around the house, especially on my mantel.  Now, I haven't decorated my mantel for the occasion quite yet, but this weekend I worked on a craft to hang from the mirror above our mantel.

Right now, my mirror is occupied by this, my newest wreath.



My idea was to somehow cover a styrofoam heart to hang from the mirror.  Hobby Lobby had a heart, however the largest one wasn't big enough, so I decided to do a trio of hearts.  The following picture is missing the largest heart because I got to going on the craft so quickly, I forgot to take a "before" picture.  I think all three hearts totaled about $5.00.


While looking for Valentine's Day ribbon, I stumbled across these jewels and I thought they'd be a nice addition and add just enough sparkle.  Each bag was priced at $1.99.


I'm usually pretty good about taking some "during" pictures, but not this time.  My apologies.   I just didn't have it in me.  But...I can tell you this.  You can follow this link to learn how to make felt pom poms.  My wreaths are just a bunch of pom poms glued together. 

I started by lining the inside of the hearts and worked my way outward until the styrofoam wreath was nearly covered.  I did not cover the entire thing, since it will be resting on the mirror.

After gluing on all of the pom poms, I added the jewels here and there.

Ta, da...done!  I can't wait to hang them from my mirror and I will be posting pictures of my mantel next week
so stay tuned.
