Craft Lab: Valentine Wreath










Here's a super easy Valentine's wreath even a child could do. I followed this tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets. I happened to have everything I needed. I think this could also be done by cutting up an old red t-shirt too. You'll need: a Heart Styrofoam wreath, fabric cut into 2" squares, glue (Elmers or Mod podge), sharpened penicil, 24" ribbon and sissors. You basically use the pencil to make a point in the center of the fabric and dip that point in the glue, and poke the pencil into the foam. Repeat until wreath is covered on the front. I used pinking shears and trimmed off any pieces that were hang out too far. Then, I simply attached the ribbon and hung on my Front door. Good Luck!

very cute! these were all the rage 20 years ago (oops! showing my age) and i made a couple exactly the same way except i didn't use any glue/modgepodge and they lasted for years. so if you don't have any on hand, do it anyway!

i threw my old ones out long ago, but i may have to go find a heart shaped styrofoam base and give it another go =)
