I found this great chevron burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby this fall, and when I went back to get it, it was all gone at the three stores I can easily drive to, and on back-order I got a call a few weeks ago that it is finally back in stock! I wanted to use it in a new Christmas garland, but Valentine's Day is the next best thing, right?
I helped some friends make one of these wreaths for Halloween and I love the look of the rosettes. She links to a great tutorial on how to make the them. I know we made at least 300 of these felt rosettes all together.
When I made my Valentine's Day wreath I knew my finger tips couldn't endure 300 rosettes worth of hot glue burns, so I settled for a smaller heart shape covered in the rosettes.
After searching through all of the great burlap wreaths on Pinterest, I liked the look of this one the best, how can you resist the poof?
She has a great tutorial on how to make this wreath, with great pictures. She used 12 yards of the burlap ribbon, and I used 3 rolls, which I think is 30 yards. I love the poof...
Here is my combination of these two wreaths:
I used some of the leftover felt to make the little flags for the LOVE letters. I cut out the letters with a black shadow on my Cricut, with the Doodletype cartridge. I glued those onto the flags, and glued the flags onto red and white bakers twine. Then I tied the twine to the metal wreath form.
Happy Valentine's Day!
