Hey everyone!! I hope that your January and 2023 are off to a great start! Last year was full of ups and downs, twists and turns and I am excited to start off 2023 with a positive attitude and a kind heart…speaking of hearts, though — Valentine’s Day is creeping up quickly!
I wanted to take this opportunity to share some projects with you all! Today, I am going to share with you how I made this super cute but also chic Valentine’s Day wreath.
Without delay, let’s jump right into the project!
For this project you will need:
- Styrofoam Circle Wreath Form
- Gold Thread
- Red and Beige Felt
- Tacky Glue
- White Fluffy Yarn
- Cricut Cutting Machine (not required but if you have, it makes the project so much easier)
Begin by taking your styrofoam wreath form and wrapping it in your white fluffy yarn. This is super easy to do you just tie it on with a simple knot and start wrapping.
Next, you are going to cut out hearts from your felt. I am using felt from Cricut. I love this felt because it has a stiffness to it that is perfect for this project. Now you can cut out your hearts by hand or you can use a Cricut cutting machine to make the process easier.
See the video at the bottom of this post for Cricut help with cutting out the hearts.
Place your hearts evenly over top of your fluffy yarn wrapped wreath. You can use a ruler to space them evenly but I am more of a eye baller type of person so I just laid mine out.
And this is the part where you can get really creative and use whatever type of fabric or felt colors you like. I opted for a nice red and beige.
Use tacky glue or fabric glue to glue the hearts in place so that they don’t move around during the next step. You will want to make sure you let the glue set for a little bit before moving onto the next step.
You could also use hot glue, but I find that a little messy for this project.
Take some gold thread (I am using gold thread that is a little thicker than normal thread and this is so you can see it) and begin to wrap it around the hearts with about 2-3 inches spacing in one direction.
When you get back to where you started, reverse the direction and go back over the wreath again. You want to create an “X” pattern over each heart. Tie off the thread on the backside of your wreath.
You can see this done easily in the video at the bottom of this post.
Add any kind of ribbon you like to hang your wreath or hang without ribbon. Style your wreath however you like. I have chosen to hang mine here on this DIY Valentines Wall Art I made.
This is such an easy DIY project and you can really have fun with this one! Check out the video below to see this project in action, as well as 5 other great Valentine’s Day projects!
