I feel like now that we have a young child who is old enough to enjoy holidays, it’s time to throw ourselves fully into decorating and crafts and such that pertain to the holiday. With that in mind, I made this felt heart wreath. I’ve been wanting to make a series of felt wreaths modeled on my favorite Christmas decoration (which was purchased, not made.) I decided to start with a less ambitious Valentine’s Day one, which would just consist of heart shapes, to sort of work out the process.
I cut two rings of red felt and sewed the outer edges together. Then i tucked in a cardboard ring I’d cut out of a box and hand sewed the inner ring. The end wreath shape was smaller than I’d anticipated. Oh, and I also sewed in a red loop of felt to be a hanger. Then I hot glued different heart shapes around the ring and hot glued on some sequins too. Had I thought it out better I would have done a different sequin arrangement, but oh well. I’m sure my kids will enjoy seeing it two weeks out of ever year.
I also painted a frame white and stamped (with paint) heart shapes rather roughly about it and put a picture of the two kids together into it to give my husband for his work desk.
