Valentine’s Felt Heart Wreath

by Katie on February 8, 2012

This year, for the first time ever, I got into decorating my house for the day of love. The house just looked boring after taking down my Christmas decorations, and really-I don’t know why I have never thought to do this before. Pinks, reds, and cupcakes-oh my-this is the cutest holiday ever!

One of my favorite crafts I made was a felt heart wreath from The Idea Room. I watched a chick flick on Netflix and got to crafting my very own heart wreath…and now I’m going to spread the love and show you how to make one!

Here is what you need:
Heart shaped wreath form
3/4 yard of felt-cut from bolt in fabric section (I chose hot pink but red or light pink would be equally beautiful)
Straight pins
Scissors (Yes, those are kitchen scissors but I use them for crafts instead)
Circle template about 3 inches in diameter (I used a cup)

The first thing you are going to do is cut a bunch of circles. I mean A BUNCH of circles.

Now it’s time to get pinning. Fold each circle in half and then in half again.

Stick a pin through it and pin it to the heart wreath. Keep pinning until the front and sides are fully covered. You won’t need to do the back…you won’t see it!

Sorry I don’t have any actual photos of the pinning step. What can I say…I was into my movie :)

And here is the hot pink felty goodness all displayed!

I originally had it hanging in traditional wreath form from a mirror in my living room. BUT…my favorite D&K letters (that’s for Daniel & Kate if you were wondering) and topiary were lonely on that side of the mantle so I added it to the display for more PINK!

What holidays do you decorate for?

This is such a cute idea. I don’t typically decorate for Valentine’s Day (still burned out from putting up Christmas decorations) but Rylee and I might just have to make this for next year. :)

I hear ya…it takes me so long to put out all of my Christmas decorations. I love them, but it’s so much work!

Love this! The hot pink is very cute. I don’t know if I have the patience to cut out so many little circles! You definitely do need a good movie on while you tackle this! And can I ask where you got the “D&K” – Hobby Lobby??

Hi Diane! Yeah, it sure did take some patience and by the time I finished I was GLAD. I got the letters at Kohl’s but I’ve seen them at Hobby Lobby too.
