My heart wreath!

What I used:
  • Foam Heart Wreath
  • Straight Pins
  • Red Felt (approx. 1/3 yd)
  • Scissors
  • Something to use as a template (coffee cup!)

Oh, I just knew when I saw it that I had to make one of these!

I saw it in the square version, but I had to have it in a heart shape. I have since seen them online, but here's mine!

I started with red, I bought a yard (totally not necessary!) but 1/3 would have been plenty!

Then, I used a coffee cup, about 3 1/4 inches, to make my circle template. I traced it with a sharpie, and you may not like to see the sharpie trace on your circles, but I like how it turned out.

I cut them out, probably 60 or so.

Then, here's how to make the fold. Fold the circle in half. Then in half again (I used a really good looking model to help me with this one!)

Then, using straight pins, I stuck them through the fold, and then into the heart wreath form.

Covered it up, filled in the gaps, and tada!!!

Here's my good looking model showing off the finished product.

I used to make something similar with fabric and I would use a screwdriver to stick the fabric into the straw wreath, easy and simple. Very cute.
