Liz makes a 'heart felt' wreath

I don't know about you, but I've been seeing DIY wreaths all over Pinterest. However, all of the tutorials I've seen use styrofoam or straw wreaths in the shapes of heart. I am not spending money on something I could potentially mess up, so instead I used cardboard. My main source of inspiration came from this post.



I used:
Cardboard
Felt
Ribbon
Scissors
Hot glue gun
Glassware

I cut out a heart shape from a cardboard box that was wasting space. I just drew a heart, cut out half of the heart, then folded it in half and cut the rest. After that, I cut out the middle.


With a drinking glass from my kitchen, I traced circles onto the felt and cut them out. I probably used around five sheets of felt. I bought a huge pack of felt for two dollars (after a coupon) at JoAnn's the other day, so this DIY was basically a steal for me!


Now you're ready to start assembling. Grab a circle, fold it in fourths, cut the bottom off and glue onto the cardboard. Easy!



Because uniformity is not my middle name, I made the felt circles go in all sorts of directions. Hot glue some ribbon on the back so you can hang it wherever you please. I really like the way it came out.




What DIY Valentine's decor are you making this month?

Love, Liz

  2. It looks good but also as it was a lot of work! You are a really hard worker.

    But the result justify in my eyes the efford - it´s absolutely heart-warming.

  11. I'm completely with you on not spending out on something that is an experiment. Wreaths haven't really caught on here in the UK, (apart from at Christmas) but when I was over in the states I remember seeing them everywhere. This one looks wonderful!

  13. I'm not into Valentines Day at all, but this is really cute! I guess the colours you used for the flowers also played a big part ^^ I won't make any special decoration for this day, it's not because I'm single but I think there's no need for one special day to celebrate our love if we can do this every single day of our lives.

    Have a nice day,
