Valentine's Day Wreath

The other day I was browsing through many different blogs and stumbled across this one:
She had a tutorial on how to make a winter wreath out of plastic shopping bags.
I am ashamed to admit that I still have my Christmas wreath hanging on my door----that is until today.
I had a bunch of Target bags stored in my pantry...and since they are red and white in color I knew they would work out perfectly.

First: I took about 14 Target bags and cut the handles off and then cut the bottom off right next to the seam.

after cutting the handles and bottom off, I then folded the bag over and cut it. Then cut out strips about 1 1/2 inches wide.

I then stacked 4 strips on top of eachother and then tied them onto a wire coat hanger formed into a circle.

The final product!
I bought 2 packs of mini clothespins with small hearts glued on at Michaels.
They came in a pack of 16 and I paid a total of $2.40 for both.
I attached them randomly to the wreath.
I love how it turned out and the fact that it cost me less than $3.00!!
