Is everyone making this wreath for Valentine's Day?
I kind of like that. Nice affirmation of my good taste. I love the look of this wreath. It reminds me of rose petals. And it's easy. I only had to cut out circles and push pins. I can do that! I first saw this wreath at The Idea Room.
I started out with a yard of red felt, a heart wreath, and a box of straight pins. I also got a chance to try out my new fabric shears. (The baby safety plug is NOT part of the wreath....)
I traced a glass from my kitchen, and cut out a couple of circles at a time. I kept thinking, "Okay, now this is enough circles." But I used up every single scrap of red felt. Not kidding. Confession: My circles looked more like lemons. Or acorns. Take your pick!
Once all those pesky circles were cut out, I took each one and folded it in half. Then I folded that in half again. I think it kind of looks like a fortune cookie, don't you think?!
I took a straight pin and secured each "rose petal" into the syrofoam heart and just started pinning away. That was the fun part for me.
I was so excited to hang my finished wreath until I realized how terrible it looked on my orange door. Talk about a clash. Good thing this won't be my door forever. Silly orange door.
Looks much better against a white background, don't you think? My baby sure thinks so. He is ready to tackle it. It is on his blankey, so it's fair game.
