Valentine's Day Wreath

I love how this wreath turned out. I made it in the same style as my Christmas wreath. It's just an easy method that can be adapted to any holiday or any time of the year. 


I started off with a foam wreath form I got at The Dollar Tree. Then I cut Valentine's Day themed scrapbook paper into strips about 2-3 inches wide. I pretty much just followed the pattern on the paper. I then cut each strip in half and folded each strip over the wreath form and secured it in the back with a glue stick. I did that all away around the whole wreath overlapping the strips as I went. 


To make the satin flowers, I cut 5 different sized circles out of red, light pink, and a darker pink satin material. Then I heat sealed the edges of each circle using a lighter. I put a dab of fabric glue in the middle of each circle and layered them on top of one another. Lastly, I added a little rhinestone in the middle of each flower and glued each flower to the wreath.


Easy peasy and adorable!
