Chevron Burlap Valentine's Day Wreath

With all of the fantastic wreath's on Pinterest, it is impossible not to feel the itch to make a few new wreaths!

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.

Easy & Pretty Felt Flower #Halloween #Wreath Craft.


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 made the heart base out of cardboard, punching two hols and stringing a piece of floral wire through the holes before I glued on the rosettes so that I would have an easy way to attach the heart to the wreath.  I might want to switch out the heart and use the burlap wreath as a base for different holidays.

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!

  16. Everyone loves the intricate design of such earrings. They may
    be just right being noticeable and check good,
    however are not huge (I dislike huge earrings). Also , they are surprisingly lightweight, so they didn't hurt Ears. The earring construction also seems to generally be done actually (I can't see any gaps where the parts attach and it doesn't appear like anything will come undone).

    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
    to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers
