OK-I thought that I would show you how to make this super cute, super easy and super cheap Valentines Wreath.
Sorry about the weird blue words that were underlined-not sure what happened
wreath form: dollar store
Ribbon-the wide kind. It works really well if the ribbon has a little bit of wire. Without wire will work OK too.
Puffy hearts : dollar store
Wire heart garland or pom pom garland: dollar store
Heart buttons: if you want
Needle and embroidery floss to match your ribbon
wrap your wreath form with ribbon
Cut long strips of the ribbon. It is much easier to work with if it is cut into strips
Do a whip stitch through the middle of the ribbon. (i think it's called a whip stitch-up down, up down.
Step 2: when you finish stitching your piece of ribbon-pull it so you get the ruffle.
Continue stitching until you have enough ribbon to go around the wreath form.
Step 3: glue your ribbon ruffle to the wreath form.
Step 4: add your garland (pom pom or wire) around the wreath form and ruffles.
Step 5: pull the hearts off the sticks (I know, I am getting really technical here)
Glue around the wreath and add buttons on top of the puffy hearts. (if you want)
I added a touch of glitter spray-because everything looks better with a little sparkle!
Hang it on a wreath hanger and you are done .
My wreath is on the small side-my wreath holder is one of those little mini ones-so I made a smaller wreath.
When I have gone to the dollar store, this is the size of wreaths that they carry. If you want to make yours bigger-go for it.
This is super simple and super easy and best of all-it's cheap.
The wreath took me about 20 mins start to finish.
So, if you are impatient like me, and like to have something done quickly-then this is the craft for you.
Have fun and if you decide to do this-leave a comment so I can see.
Get your craft on!
