Burlap Wreath with Chalkboard Heart

I finally finished my Valentine wreath!

Burlap Wreath with Chalkboard Heart

Pin It

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
  • chalk
  • jute

I pretty much followed the same directions as The Idea Room except for one important step:

As I started using the straight pins to attach the circles to the wreath, I found that the pins would go right though the burlap so I had to improvise.  I used my hole puncher to punch holes in red card stock.  I poked the straight pin through the small circles and then attached the burlap to the wreath.  I used one straight pin to attach two pieces of burlap.

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.

Valentine Burlap Wreath with Chalkboard Heart

I wasn’t planning on adding the chalkboard heart but after it was all finished, I felt like it was missing something.  My friend suggested a heart so I headed to Michael’s and found the wooden heart.

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.

What’s your favorite Valentine craft you’ve made this year?  Leave a link so I can stop by and check it out.

  41. Take your time and don’t make your choice lightly so you will
    feel confident that the smart choice is being made. Enclosed Transportation:
    If you want to transport your expensive or luxurious car, you certainly do not want to take a
    chance with your vehicle. In general ca transport companies offer two options, either they will
    dive your car to destination or they will ship your car
    via truck which will save the extra mileage of your car.
