I enjoy making new wreaths and wanted something for Valentine's. After being inspired by the many Valentine's wreaths that I've seen, I came up with my own design. You just need a wreath, gray yarn, felt, gemstones, and hot glue. You probably already have most of these things at home.
Foam wreaths can be a little expensive. My friend Janelle gave me the best tip ever about foam wreaths. Go to Home Depot, buy the foam tubing for less than $1 and you can make any size wreath you want. Genius!!!! I cut the tube in half and that makes a really nice size wreath. That also means that each tube can make 2 wreaths!!!
I first learned how to make felt flowers from my friend Samantha's blog, Crafty Texas Girls. I've made them into pins and hair accesories and knew they would look perfect on the wreath. I made just a slight variation on these flowers and used 4 circles per flower. I just traced around a jar that was the size I wanted.
