Valentine Wreath

When it comes to crafting I can sometimes be fickle.  I look at past scrapbook pages and want to redo them, I grow tired of decor I've made, and I frequently "improve" my various projects. 

This one I better love forever.
It took a few late nights to complete. 
Cutting and rolling all those little flowers took the most time. 
The felt flowers are hot glued onto a Styrofoam wreath. 
I found a super tut for making the flowers at Take Heart

 I think it's worth all that time I spent on it. 
{I Love it.}

I really like your wreath! Red was a good choice of color. I'm sure you'll love it forever, there's absolutely nothing not to love about this wreath!

Haha! I ALWAYS look at scrapbook pages I have done and think, "Hmmm...I could change this" and "oh, I dont like this anymore, I'll redo it!"

Love those flowers. The whole wreath looks soft to me. Like I want to lay down in a field of those flowers. :-)

The wreath is fabulous! It does look VERY time consuming, but definitely worth it!

Aimee - I bought 2 bags of the 36 x 36 inch red felt from Michaels. That should be more than enough to cover a 14 inch wreath.

Courtney said...

I Love Love Love your Valentine wreath. In fact I just made one on Sunday in White. I used a vine wreath with White Flelt. You are right cutting and rolling all the little flowers took most of the time. However, they are beautiful. Stop by and check mine out on my blog.
