Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I cannot believe how quickly this month is flying by! I’ve been thinking of ways to decorate the apartment without it being overly done. During the Christmas Holiday I made a paper wreath that was loads of fun and I received many compliments from my friends and family. This time around I decided to make a wreath out of felt and this is what I made.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 8″ foam wreath (available at any craft store)
- soft felt
- glue gun and glue sticks
- Valentine Paper or construction paper (optional)
- 2″ cup or anything to draw circles on felt
- Ribbon or Twine (for hanging)
First thing I did was trace and cut 2″ circles using an old cup I had for holding my pencils (you can use anything you have available). Be patient because this step is a bit time consuming since you’ll have to trace then cut about 100 of these felt circles.
Next I folded the felt in half then in half again until the I have a triangle shape (like below).
Using my glue gun I poked the tip of the gun on the the foam wreath and filled it with glue. Then I stuck the folded felt tip in and held it for a few seconds making sure it didn’t pop back out. Sorry I don’t have picture for this step. 😦
Continue to glue the felt until your done. Your final step will be to tie an 8″ ribbon to the back of the wreath and hang. An optional step you can do is grab your favorite scrapbook paper or construction paper and write a word like “love” “amore” or whatever floats you boat! Either way this is a fun and cute project anyone can do!
What about you? What project(s) are you working on for Valentine’s Day?
