I couldn’t let too much time go by as Valentine’s Day approaches before making a new Valentine’s Day wreath. This one is super easy and can be embellished to suit your own style. I’m loving how it turned out!
- Straight Pins
- Foam Wreath Form
- Wired Burlap Ribbon
- Embellishments (rosettes, heart, Love sign)
- Small Piece of Ribbon for looping
- Hot Glue
Cut felt fabric into squares, approximately 4″ in size. To make this wreath, I used 280 squares. It doesn’t matter if they aren’t exactly the same size. Close enough will do fine for this wreath. The number of squares you will need depends on what size wreath form you use.
I placed squares over the top and inside and outside of the wreath. There is no need to do the back side of the wreath. Getting the desired result takes a while, but it’s so simple. It took about two hours to completely cover the wreath form.
I’ve been making felt square wreaths this way for a long time, but I recently saw a lovely one made by Christie at Sparkles of Sunshine using a different method. Christie’s wreath is lovely. I encourage you to have a look!
I used a thin piece of white ribbon and looped it around the top of the wreath and tied it off for a hanging loop. Using wired burlap ribbon with gold specks, I tied a bow around the white ribbon. I made a quick rolled flower from burlap ribbon, added a button and two pearl head pins and glued it to the bow.
I bought a package of several hearts to use for various Valentine’s Day projects. I used glittered gold spray paint for the heart. The small bow is secured with another pearl head pin.
I bought the “Love” sign from Michaels and gave it a quick coat of white spray paint. The edges of it are hot glued to the felt.
I love the combination of the bright red felt with the burlap and gold. This year, I’m doing my Valentine’s Day Decor in gold and red. We always have dinner at home on Valentine’s Day and each year, I try to use a different color scheme. Last year, I shared our Table for Two decor using red, silver, black and white, so it’s going to be fun changing it up this year using red and gold. I’ll be sharing our 2016 Table for Two post on Valentine’s Day.
I’m pleased to have this new Valentine’s Felt Squares Wreath as part of the decor this year.
We’ll be sharing at lots of these great parties!
