Valentine's Day Wreath

Ok, I am simply in love with this one. Not only did K2 help me make all theses pom-poms, but I was able to use up a ton of scrap yarn that I couldn't use for anything else. I really am happy with the way it turned out.

I had purchased a wire wreath form many months ago when it was on sale. You can get them at your local craft store. Use a coupon and pick one up for less than $5. I couldn't decide on what I wanted to make, but I knew I wanted more than just the wreath I hang at Christmas time.
It didn't take long to wrap up a bunch of pom-poms with K2 using this handy little contraption from Clover:
I had some red felt left over from another project, so I  cut out a heart shape and crocheted an edging around it in white. Then I tied the poms to the wire frame, secured the heart and finished it with a leftover ribbon from a Christmas present. I was afraid to commit to it until it was done, so nothing is permanent  I can easily untie the poms for storage or to update for another holiday. However, I really love it, so I may just keep it as it. Super cheap and fun project.
