Fabric Heart Wreath

Here is a little Valentines Day Wreath I made last year with my mother in law and wanted to post it again on this blog because it was just SO fun and easy. I found the idea on Little Birdie Secrets.

Here are your supplies

[I got my foam heart online at Joannes-) They are surprisingly hard to come by these days

Take about 3/4 of a yard of fabric and cut into 2 inch squares. These can be all the same fabric or a combination of different fabrics

Fill a paper bowl with glue. Place fabric square on pencil tip with right-side facing the pencil (a pen or stylus would work as well). Be sure the pencil tip is in the center. Dip the fabric covered pencil tip into the glue. You don’t need a lot, just a little on the end.

Press the pencil tip into the Styrofoam hard enough that when you remove the pencil--your fabric stays in place. Continue doing until your whole wreath is covered

Add a ribbon and hang up. They recommended tying a small loop around the finished wreath with string, then threaded the ribbon through that.

Well there you have it, pretty easy huh!! Took a couple hours- a super easy craft to do to get you ready for Lovers Day!!!
another cute heart wreath coming soon!!!
