Make a heart wreath for Valentine's Day
Feeling all soppy and romantic this year? Or perhaps you would like to do something different this year. Crafty Sisters have a wonderful red felt heart wreath that is fairly simple and only requires a few basic crafting tools.
You will need:
Piece of hardboard, plywood or even stiff cardboard cut to your heart shape.
Fleecy fabric to cover
Upholstery or drawing pins
Cut a piece of fleece to the same shape as your heart backing and use a glue gun to attach to the backing.
Leave a small opening to be able to pad the heart with batting and then glue this closed.
I added a few drawing pins to keep the fleece and stuffing down.
traced the circles, and cut. I used pinking shears and like the result.
Each circle was folded twice and dabbed with a little glue from the glue gun to help hold the shape. You need to hold the folded fabric until the glue sets. I then put more glue on the bottom and attached the folded circle to the wreath, starting with the outer edge.
I finished it off with a silver ribbon saved from Christmas packages and flecked it with some silver glitter spray.
