I saw this adorable scrap fabric garland over at My Blessed Life that totally inspired me to create this Valentine’s Day Wreath. Finally a project I could do with supplies I already had on hand. Woo!
I had this wreath laying around and thought it would be great to re-use. You probably can’t tell by looking at it but it’s one of those super cheap straw ones. All I did was wrap it in strips of painters drop cloth and then covered it in pink tulle.
I cut out 2 hearts (only one pictured) from felt to use as my base and then cut red and pink sheets of felt into strips. I rolled the strips into little rosettes and then hot glued them onto the felt hearts. (Totally thought I took a picture of this but I didn’t. Whoops!) Once my hearts were filled with rosettes I went back and added some more hot glue between the rosettes to make it more secure.
I then took a bunch of torn strips of fabric and tied them onto a string of bakers twine to make the little garland. I hot glued the garland to the wreath and attached my rosette hearts to 2 strands of ribbon and hung them down from the top of the wreath.
This project took me about an hour. Would have probably taken me less time had I not been chasing my almost 2 year old while getting distracted by thoughts of organizing my craft supplies and worrying that my last glue stick would run out. Yes. I have problems.
