Valentine Wreath

I have a confession.

I don't really like yarn wreaths.
I know. 
I am a blogger, I have tons of yarn (I even like yarn ornaments), and love a glue gun-
How can I turn my back on yarn wreaths???

I know.
I can't pinpoint what it is about them.  They just aren't my favorite.
Then my neighbor made one for Christmas and it was so cute.
Then I saw the red and pink one that is flying all over pinterest and I kind of warmed up to the whole idea of making my own.

Then we had a moment of free time before we picked up Avery and I gave in and we swooped into Michael's and grabbed some Styrofoam before I could find my way out of there.
Then I enlisted some help

(a little bit crazy over here when we get out the glue gun)

(don't worry, she has really steady hands. and I helped a little.  against her will)

She really is my sidekick when it comes to most things.  It is so fun having a daughter to craft with.  Avery likes it, but not like sassy.  She wants to be totally involved (ehh um- doing it completely on her own) in almost everything I am doing.  Love you, sass pot.

She was pretty proud of her new creation.

and I think it turned out cute.

I don't love the twine and want a way to hang it that is cuter.
I will let you know.

Oh, and ben loved it too.

 So that is a plus.
