The "Love" sign is one that I cut from 2mm chipboard on my Cricut Maker but these can also be found made from wood in craft stores or online.
Making the Loopy Burlap Flowers
I have made these flowers for a few projects. I first learned to make them when I was a kid doing crafts with my mom.
I picked up the red burlap roll after Christmas but I have also found them available on Amazon year-round. One roll will make 10 flowers.
Cut the roll into 10 18-inch pieces. It's likely you won't get exactly 18 inches out of that last piece. It will probably be close enough.
I made a sped-up video of how I made the flowers.
If you want the detailed step-by-step text and photos for making the loopy burlap flowers, I have these posted on a separate blog post.
Assembling the Wreath
I painted the word "Love" that I had cut on my Cricut Maker and attached it to the bottom of the wreath with some hot glue.
I then started arranging the flowers in groups on each side of the Love letters.
Using 3" wide wired ribbon, I made a big bow.
I started with 4 24-inch strips that I glued into 4 loops.
For the center tie of the bow, I removed the wires from a 6-inch piece of ribbon.
Fold that 6-inch piece into a tube and glue it shut.
Take the 4 loops and flatten them into a stack. Pinch the center of the stack and wrap the tube piece around the pinch. Glue in place.
Fan out the loops and poof them up.
The bow is ready to attach to the wreath
Using some hot glue, attach the bow near the top of the wreath.
There are still two more flowers left to attach to the wreath. I added mine just to the left of the bow.
To dress up the wreath a little more, I found these red and white berries on stems. I just tucked them into the wreath.
The wreath is now done and ready to hang in your home!
There are so many ways you arrange the flowers on the wreath, so many different things you can use to embellish the wreath.
