I’m trying something new and adding a bit of color to the house by decorating for Valentine’s Day.
I found a metal heart shaped wreath form at Joann’s. I used that as my inspiration and with a little upcycled fabric and a whole bunch of glass vase fillers (also called glass craft rounds) I made a heart shaped Valentine’s Day wreath.
Even better the metal wreath form is sturdier and less likely to break than the not so eco friendly foam wreath forms. Yay!
How to Make a Heart Shaped Valentine’s Day Wreath
You will need:
Metal heart shape wreath form
Red fabric or ribbon
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Red glass vase filler/craft discs (I used approximately a bag and a half of glass craft discs for my wreath. You might need more or less depending upon the size of your wreath form)
Ribbon or lace for hanging
1. Cut with the scissors as needed, wrap, and hot glue the red fabric or ribbon to the metal wreath form.
I’m using red fabric my mom removed from one of her old projects and gave me to “be creative with.” Thanks Mom!
Tip: No matter how careful I try to be, I always end up with at least one hot glue gun burn that blisters my fingers.
I started wearing Hot Glue Gun helpers when I work with hot glue and I don’t have to deal with burning my fingers! These little bits of silicone are pure magic!) I bought my Hot Glue Gun Helpers from Amazon here.
3. Tie the ribbon in a bow around the wreath and hang it up!
The glass beads make this wreath heavy. I recommend using a sturdy wreath hanger and hanging it on a wall or door you do not use.
