When one strip ran out, I overlapped the next one by a quarter of an inch or so and continued wrapping.
I initially planned to have the wreath be entirely grey, but I ran out of grey felt. I actually like the way the section of fuchsia looks, though! I love using up what I have on hand for projects like this.
…and then I pressed them in half again. These were the strips I used to create my rosettes. For a full play-by-play for how to roll the rosettes, be sure to check out the rolled rosette tree tutorial.
My goal for this wreath was to have something fun to display for Valentine’s Day that could also transition well into my spring decor. I opted to make a little metal heart banner out of dismantled Coke cans cut with a heart die using my Epic tool. (By the way…have you entered the Creative Carousel giveaway? There is an Epic tool – in addition to lots of other goodies – up for grabs!) I secured the banner to the wreath with sections of twine so that I could easily remove the hearts once Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Dimensional foam stickers give the banner some added pizzazz.
Once the elements for my wreath were assembled, I put my trusty hot glue gun to work affixing everything to the wreath. I rounded out everything with a bright turquoise bow (I am loving polka dots lately!) and some raffia sprays.
I love how happy this wreath looks on my pantry door!
Such a lively addition to my kitchen.
Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it! Have you started decorating yet?
Thanks so much for stopping in!
