Ruffled Heart Wreath Tutorial

I FINALLY made something!
I haven’t really crafted in SO long!

Here is my one and only Valentine’s Day craft.
I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to make and I had to change it when I started but I am happy with the results.

Ruffled Heart Wreath

Here is how to make one:
-Heart shaped wreath form
– Burlap
– Ribbon
– Glue Gun (I used my low temp gun)

Getting started:

Cut your burlap into 2 inch wide strips.
I only had short pieces of burlap so I had to cut many strips but you could probably cut one or two long strips if you have a large piece.

I then placed glue in the crease of the heart and down one side of the point and glued down the burlap.

As I was gluing the burlap down, I pulled it really tight.

I then wrapped the burlap back on itself to the opposite side, pulling tight as I went.
I made sure to start and end each burlap strip on the back side of my wreath so the ends would not be visible.

I wrapped the burlap down the side and stop before I got to the end.
Place glue along the tip and center a piece of burlap on the point of the heart.
Place hot glue in the crease of the point and pull the burlap tight.

Fold the sides of the burlap like a present and glue down.

Continue to wrap the wreath until it is fully covered by the burlap.

Before adding the ruffles, I added ribbon to hang the wreath from.

I also added some turquoise yarn across the wreath for a bunting banner.

Next, I cut my pink felt into 2 inch wide strips.

Place hot glue on the back of the wreath.
Glue down the felt, bunching it as gluing to create the ruffles.

Continue around the whole wreath.

I then cut purple felt to create little bunting flags and used a fabric marker to write out Love.

Hung the wreath on my shutters for a little Valentine’s Day decor.

I think it looks perfect there!

Here is a shot of my Valentine’s Day shutter decor with the new addition of the wreath.
