Valentine’s Wreath

Valentine's WreathHello friends!  Can you believe it almost Valentine’s Day already?  Is your decor up, I have a confession…mine isn’t.  It’s slowly coming together, check out this adorable Valentine’s Wreath I just made.  So cute right?!  Best part is it’s super easy to make.

Supplies:

Foam wreath form

Felt

Small sewing pins

Fabric strips (cut in to 2″ wide strips)

Small fancy photo frame (this one is from Michaels)

Chalkboard paint & foam brush

Chalkboard marker, or free printable found below

Start by wrapping your entire wreath form with your fabric strips.  I used the small sewing pins to attach my fabric to the form, this saves me from having to always purchase new wreath forms.  I recycle them often for new designs.

Once your wreath is completely wrapped you can start cutting your felt feathers and leaves.  I just used a pattern I cut from card stock of a leaf to cut my felt.  For the feathers I just cut notches out of the sides.  You can create as many of these as you like.  I cut 3 natural colored feathers, 3 red leaves, and 3 gray feathers.

You can place your leaves and feathers in what pattern you like, or you can follow the pattern I did and lay them out.  For the red leaves I chose to roll them like the picture below, then pinned them. This just added a special touch to the design.

Again I used my small sewing pins to attach all my felt pieces to my wreath form.  This makes it so easy to switch out colors or create a whole new wreath.

Lastly you will need to create a small chalkboard frame for the center of your felt leaves and feathers.  I found this small fancy frame at Michaels around Christmas, they usually carry them in small sizes in the dollar section.  You can see the full tutorial on how to make them a chalkboard HERE.  Once your chalkboard frame is ready you can either use a chalkboard marker to write a cute note or word.  If you don’t want to turn your frame in to a chalkboard you can use the free printable below and insert it in to a small round frame.  For my wreath I chose to use the printable since it will be going outside.

If you want to use the printable just simply right click on the image below and “save as”.  Open in your favorite program and resize it to fit your frame.  I suggest printing it on a matte photo paper or card stock.
