Tissue Paper Wreath

This is my Valentine's wreath.  Total cost: $4.  

Here's how to make your own...

You will need:
1 wire hanger
2 packages of tissue paper, any color

Take a wire hanger and form it into the shape of a heart.  
Next take your tissue paper and cut into strips about 6 inches long by about 1 inch wide.  
Take one tissue paper strip and twist around the hanger like you would do so with a twisty tie.  
Repeat around the entire wire heart.  

Keep bunching your tissue ties together as you go.    

This one is red because it's one my neighbor made after she saw mine!  :)  

Hang and enjoy!
