Felt Heart Wreath

I saw this super cute, easy felt wreath on The Idea Room and decided I had to make it for Valentines Day.  I also thought it would be a fun project to work on with some friends. I got a group together today and here are the results!! (click to enlarge) Since we did this in the afternoon, we had to bring the kids along which is partly the reason why most of our wreaths didn't get all the way finished!

We each did our own thing- mostly because styrofoam heart wreaths are SO hard to find. I got mine at Hobby Lobby but they apparently ran out. Joann's and Michaels don't carry them in the store but I know you can order them online!
Erika used styrofoam balls for hers and turned out super cute!!

Carrie and Ashley with their heart wreaths, each using different shades of red

Here is mine- yep pretty much copied the original, I'm kinda in love though!

So all you need is some sort of styrofoam wreath, ball etc... straight pins, about 3/4 yard of felt and scissors. I used a cup to make a 3 inch circle template and cut MANY circles out using my felt. Then you basically fold the circle twice and stick a pin through the bottom of the point into the wreath. Repeat X 200 or so until your wreth is covered!! There are so many ways you can go with this project and already want to make one for each holiday. How cute would 4th of July styro. balls be??
Such a fun craft, glad people come up with this stuff- maybe I should change the name of my blog to "The Idea Stealer!!" I"m so good at it!


  1. I love them! There is a girl in my ward who made something similar and I think they are quite fetching. ;)

    And I always enjoy hearing about new blogs and sites. I will be paying "The Idea Room" a little visit!

  2. I love the look of the felt on the heart. I saw it this morning and grabbed a heart while I was out running errands. Thanks for the idea.

  3. These were so fun!! I loved doing it with all you girls - so much better than just doing it by myself. Let me know when you find another craft to copy - I'm there!! :)

  4. Great job! Good ideas are for sharing! Looks like a fun afternoon with friends! They all turned out so cute! Thanks for the link!

  5. My friends and I saw the same idea and did that same craft last January... so fun!
