Of course I had to make something myself using conversation hearts, and a few of my other favorite crafting supplies. And because I didn't get around to making a Christmas Wreath this year, a wreath was what came to mind first.
I am reusing the same wreath form that I have used for all my wreaths. I have a tutorial on how to wrap your wreath in yarn here. It's pretty easy, it just takes some time. The yarn I used this time is called Airy by Yarn Bee. It worked really well for covering my wreath form. I did my my layer of yarn pretty thick because I wanted it to look nice and fluffy.
For my conversation hearts I used a heart shaped paper punch to cut hearts out of bright solid colored card stock. I then took basic uppercase letter stamps to write the messages on my hearts in red ink.
I wrapped the bakers twine around my wreath then taped the hearts on. Lastly I added the washi tape pennants to the twine.
After I added the bakers twine and got everything on it. I made some fabric flowers. They are easy to make.
You take 11/2 inch fabric rounds, and fold them in half and then in half again making a small triangle. Securing it together with hot glue. You make 4 of these out of each of your fabric choices. After that you glue 4 on the extra round and then another layer of 4, I alternated mine so you could see both fabrics.
It looks like this after you have glued on all your triangles.
Then take a medium sized colored brad and push it through the layers, and flatten it on the back.
Then attach them to the finished wreath with hot glue.
I think it's my favorite wreath so far! Do you make a Valentines day wreath?
