Valentines Wreath



Hello :)  I do love, LOVE.  :) This is my Valentines gift to myself...Making wreaths is one of my favorite craft projects.  When I began this project I knew it was going to be time consuming, and I don't even want to tell you how long it took me to make this{I sound like I am trying to convince you not to make this...}.  I do love how my wreath turned out, or I would of been a force to be reckoned with.  If you would like to make this you will need straw wreath still in the plastic wrap, about 1.5 yards of felt {don't pick the lowest quality}, scissors, lots of hot glue, hot glue gun, and lots of time.  You can use my tutorial {HERE} to make the flowers.  My suggestions:

*Make 3 different sizes of flower to help cover the wreath completely (5, 4, 3 inch square).
 
*I would cut 30 squares, then make that many flowers {and repeat}.  My hand might of started cramping, because I was cutting so many flowers out. 


Here are some of my Valentines decor.  :)

Have a wonderful week, and Valentines day :)
