Triple Heart {Valentine} Wreath

Pin It
I've been in a crafty mood lately.  More so than usual!

I realized I didn't have a V-Day Wreath, so I searched for a cute idea.  I love the one over at The Idea Room.  Problem was, one little heart looked ridiculously small on my door. 



So, I tripled it!



This tutorial is SUPER easy, folks.  Especially for how cute it turns out!


Supplies needed:

12", 8" & 4" foam heart shaped wreath form
1 yard of felt for EACH wreath
Straight pins (I used about 350 total)
Scissors
Ribbon


How to:

Start by cutting out 3" felt circles.  Just use a cup to trace them on the felt.

I used approximately 175 circles for the large heart, 125 for the medium, and 100 for the small.

Fold your felt in half twice (to get 4 layers), and the cutting will go MUCH faster!




After you have finished cutting out ALL those circles, pin them on!

Start by folding one circle in half.



Fold in half again.



Looks like this from the top:


Stick a straight pin through all four layers, at the point of your fold.



Pin that to your wreath!



There is no "right" way to pin them on.  Do it randomly-you can group them close together for a super full look, or far apart for a more ruffly look.


I did mine close together.  I like the super full look.




LOVING this ruffly goodness.  My kiddos couldn't stop running their hands over them as I worked!



One you have covered all 3 wreaths, it's time to put them together.

Cut a short piece of ribbon, and use pins to attach the ribbon to the bottom/top of each wreath.



Not complicated, right?


Same for the ribbon up top.  Use pins to secure it to your largest wreath form.



Now, you are done!

  2. The three hearts look adorable! I fear that the 300 plus felt hearts might not be in the cards for me for this Valentine's Day, but I'm going to pin your idea for next Valentine's Day or maybe to make a spring-themed wreath using felt. Thanks for sharing!
