Valentine's Day Wreath
This valentine’s day wreath is perfect to make your home a little more festive.
To make these valentines day door decorations, I used scraps of fleece, both white and red, tulle, burlap fabric, satin and a small piece of ribbon I had no use for anymore because it was too small. You can of course use any other types of fabric, depending on your fabric scraps stash.
I really, really loved working on this burlap valentine wreath and I think the end result is super cute!
Start by placing the large bowl or plate on the polystyrene and cut all the way around with a razor knife.
On the resulting circle, place the medium bowl and cut all the way around.
Take your burlap fabric and fold it in 4 to form a long strip of fabric. You may need to use 2 strips.
Pin one end to the back of your polystyrene circle and start wrapping the fabric around the circle. When done, pin into place.
Cut 6 hearts from the red and 6 from the white fleece for the back and front of the hearts (so you’ll have 3 red and 3 white hearts); fill with fabric scraps or polyfill and stitch the edges by hand, using contrast thread (red for the white hearts, white for the red hearts).
Make the fabric flowers. Cut 2 circles from the pink satin and stitch all the way around the edges of each then gather to the center and stitch to the back. Stitch a button in the center where the raw edges gather.
Take the tulle and randomly gather it on the lower left hand side of the wreath, pinning into place as you go. Gather in small batches. Leave a longer strip not gathered at the base to just hang.
Place 5 of the hearts wherever you want them, over the gathered tulle and pin
Pin the extra heart and the 2 satin flowers to the opposite side.
Make a large loop from the ribbon, to hang on a wall or your front door.
