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
– Glue Gun (I used my low temp gun)
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.
Linking up to some of these parties.
