Heart Wreath plus a Sneak Peak

Court and I were feeling crafty and had ideas for some {Valentine's} themed crafts for our homes.

 Let's start with my favorite... Our pretty Heart Wreath

 



We made 2 heart wreath's soooo... we bought 2 heart shaped foam wreath's, 2 packs of straight pins, and 1 1/2 yards of YUMMY FELT. You can choose whatever color felt you prefer... we went with RED!

{Remember, Court and I made 2 heart wreath's. If you are only making 1, you will only need 3/4 yard of felt. It will seem like WAY TOO MUCH, but you WILL need it.}



I LOVE that this project only needed 3 different things to complete. {By the way, we found all of our supplies at Joann's}


Start by using a cup as your circle pattern. We picked a cup that measured about 3 inches across. TRACE, TRACE, TRACE, TRACE your sweet little heart away. We used {EVERY BIT} of our red felt. You will have LOTS AND LOTS of red circles.



Austin wanted to help so we put him to work.


When you have all of your circles cut, you are ready to start pinning them to your wreath.





After you use all of your felt circles, you will have created this yummy  heart wreath. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS HEART.


I used tulle to hang mine, Court used Zebra ribbon. You can use WHATEVER you want, just stick it in the back with your straight pins.


Doesn't it look DELICIOUS? This is definitely one of the easiest things we have made to date! And it's super cute.

We like to give credit where credit is due.... we found this YUMMY idea at eighteen25. We've got SEVERAL other V~Day crafts to share with everyone, that we will be posting SOON!
