Here are are some simple, fast, cheap and pretty Valentine's Day decorations. I used 3 inch Styrofoam balls and less than a 1/2 a yard of 72 inch wide felt for each ball. I cut out about 2 inch circles, folded them in half and folded them in half again. Then I took short straight pins and pinned them through the corners and into the Styrofoam balls. I alternated the way each circle faced to make the ruffles.
I used the same technique to make this beautiful heart. I Love this wreath! The only thing right now is that I cannot find anymore Styrofoam hearts at any craft stores :( That's why I ended up making the balls. I used 3/4 yard felt to make the heart.
The funny/sad story about this heart is the day after I finished it, I had it laying on my table and my dog took it outside (through his doggy door) when I wasn't home and pulled out each and every ruffle. He is very gentle so I was able to put it all back together without replacing any of the items.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
