Valentine's Day Craft

I found this adorable heart wreath on The Idea Room website and thought I'd create one of my own. I cut out 276 three inch round pieces of felt (no I didn't count them, I just did the math), folded them twice, and then pinned them onto a heart shaped foam wreath.
This project was VERY time consuming so I ended up doing it at work on my breaks as well as a home when I should of been sleeping. But needless to say, I am very pleased with the results.



Here are the materials

I bought a few different packages of pins before I found the ones that worked. Save yourself the trouble and buy these!

After folding it twice stick the pin through the bottom like so and then push into the wreath.

Here is the wreath part way completed. Notice I placed the felt closer together than shown in the original tutorial. Once I realized that I felt I was too committed to turn back so I just went with it! I still like the way it turned out though :)


Pin It!
