DIY Big Heart Wreath Form

UGH... Why is it sooooo hard to find a big, thick wreath form?  I feel like all the stores I've searched only have small, skinny wreath forms and they cost too much in my opinion!  So, I searched Pinterest trying to find other options and there were no ideas for a heart-shaped wreath form.  I did expand on the idea, however, of using a vent duct as a wreath form, but I really wanted a heart.  So, without further adieu...

How to make a heart-shaped wreath form:
what you'll need:

Big, Sturdy cardboard box
Vent Duct
Duct Tape

Cut out a heart shape from your cardboard box.  Because I wanted mine big, I had to cut half of my heart from one side of the box, and the other half of my heart from the other side of the box, then I taped them together at the bottom.  I didn't tape it together on the top because you will need your heart to be open so you can feed it through your vent tube.  I also put a little duct tape around the sides for extra support because it was starting to bend a bit.
Once you have fed the cardboard heart through your vent tube, duct tape the cardboard heart together and then make sure that your vent duct completely covers the cardboard, and duct tape that closed as well.  And there you have it!

The vent duct I bought was 8 ft. long and 4 inches wide.  I got it at Lowe's for $10.  The wreath form I made here is 26 inches wide!

Here is what I did with mine:
