And it was definitely a labor of love! But I'm not complaining at all because I love the way it turned out and my friend and I had a fun time making our wreaths together!!
I originally wanted to make this heart wreath from The Idea Room but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.
First, I couldn't find the heart foam wreath at any of my local craft stores. Then, when I went to Joann's they had about 1/2 a yard of red felt so I had to come up with a plan B. After walking around Joann's for about an hour I ended up leaving with a round wreath a red burlap.
Supplies Needed for a Burlap Valentine Wreath:
- 2 yards of red burlap
- 1 round foam wreath
- straight pins
- hole puncher
- red scrapbook paper
- wooded heart
- chalkboard paint
You might think that this adds an extra step to the process but after the burlap circles kept falling off of the wreath and I would have to fix it, it actually helped it go by faster.
Cover entire wreath with folded burlap circles making sure all spaces are filled in.
I painted the heart with chalkboard paint and drilled two holes in it. I wrote "Love is Spoken Here" with a chalk pen and simply tied it to the wreath with jute.
I love it!! After Valentine's Day I plan on untying the heart and adding a rectangular chalkboard so I can write "Welcome" on it.
So put on a good Lifetime movie, open a bottle of wine, grab a friend and have fun making this burlap wreath.
