Birthday, but before I left, I whipped together this Valentine Wreath.
The neat thing about this wreath is that you can hot glue or use
thumb tacks when adding the ribbon and hearts, this way you can
easily remove the Valentine theme and keep the wreath up longer
to brighten some Winter Days.
She is not fancy,
She is not schmancy,
But she is cute
She is fun
She can be made in under an hour!
Materials Needed for Be Mine Valentine Wreath~
1- One 20 inch straw form
2- 1/4 yard of red burlap or one roll red burlap ribbon
3- Black chiffon wire ribbon
4- Red Chiffon wire ribbon
5- White grosgrain ribbon
6- Red felt
7- Paper flowers
8- Silver bead embellishments
9- Measuring Tape
10- Glue gun
Decide which will be the front of your wreath, that way most of
your gluing won't be visible.
I used red burlap fabric for this wreath then measured and cut the
burlap into 3 inch strips about 12 inches long-38 ish-strips total.
(I did count-honestly...)
If you want to avoid measuring and cutting one roll of red burlap
ribbon will also work. Secure each strip with hot glue as you begin
wrapping and when you end. Pulling fabric tightly as you wrap.
Now it is time to add the red chiffon ribbon, I like adding layers to
my wreaths. It creates dimension and interest and just makes them
well, more appealing and fun. So, wrap the red chiffon around the
burlap, spacing about 3 inches and hot glue.
Time to add these cute paper flowers, I attached them with hot
glue in clusters of four groups of three. This really is just a little
pattern for you to follow, just let your imagination go-I am sure you
are already picturing all sorts of darling little doo-dads to add!
Place a 2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter on red felt.
Trace around heart shaped cookie cutter-I made 4 hearts. Cut
grosgrain ribbon into a 18 inch length strip hot glue or thumb tack
ribbon onto wreath, then glue hearts on-add sparkles to hearts if
you have a notion to do so...
And there you have it,
Easy, peasy and fun to make!
