Supplies: Fascinating Friends (366165) - Polka Dot Party, Polka Dot Plates (366177) - Polka Dot Party, Cutesy Cupcake (366164) - Polka Dot Party, Clothespins (366208) - Polka Dot Party, Bits (366849) - Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Adhesive Flowers (366203) - Polka Dot Party
First off, I wanted to add a heart banner across the opening of the wreath. I used Silhouette Studio to create several heart shapes. I welded two of the heart shapes together so that I could fold them over once they were cut.
I added a shape from the new Plus One Bits pack where my banner met the wreath on the left side. Then I placed each of my letters according to the placement of the Die Cut Cardstock Shape.
Once the word was in place and I embellished with a few hearts cut from cardstock, I decided to make an arrow to add over the "O". I used a paper straw and added a rectangle cut piece of patterned paper to the end. I shaped the top piece of paper over the straw and then adhered both pieces to the top and bottom of the straw.
When the pieces were secure, I cut an angle on the top and bottom to create the fringe at the end of the arrow. You can just use regular scissors to create the fringe look.
