Sweet Valentine

Good morning all!  I haven't done a craft project in oh so long, I got the urge to make this cute little valentine's wreath this past weekend.  Here is a step-by-step directions on how to create this wreath…

Supplies you'll need:
-  Red Felt 1/2 yard
-  Styrofoam heart shape base
-  Scissors
-  Hot glue gun






Cut around the form leaving extra fabric 
Cut slits around the form to make it easier to wrap 

Cut 5 inch felt squares, I did 4 at a time in order to speed up the process

 Make a haphazard swirl 
Cut out the swirl


Take the end section (not the curly cue on top) and start rolling







 When you get to the end, put some glue on the bottom and place that curly cue on top

Like this...





At this point, I put on a movie and just started rolling!  This part gets a bit mundane, but it will beautiful at the end.

Glue the roses unto the form





I put three rows of roses to make it look nice and full (ignore the awful door, it took a beating from hurricane Sandy)





Isn't is so sweet?  I love the way it came out!  

Have a great day!
