My Cup Runneth Over: VALENTINE'S DAY WREATH

VALENTINE'S DAY WREATH

Happy Day All!

I wanted to share a quick project for a Valentine's Day.  I made this pretty wreath last spring with a few things I had around the craft room.  
I just love the look of these satin roses.  They are romantic and so pretty!  A perfect combination for Valentine's Day.  So, here's what I did.  I cut out pieces of pink satin into flower shapes just like I did for The Boo's Bulletin Board.  
I singed the edges to make them curl up and then layered them until they were looking pretty.  (Watch out for burned fingers!!)  I used needle and thread to hold all the layers and also add beads for the center of each flower.  
I cut out green ribbon for leaves and singed the edges of those too.  It helps them to curl up just a bit.  

The cool thing about these types of flowers is that they are not symmetrical and you can add as many layers to make it look just the way you want. 

I added a burlap pennant with paper cut-out letters (thank goodness for my Cricut!) and threaded some ribbon through to connect it all together.  
It turned out great and I didn't spend any additional money!  I had everything in random stashes from leftover projects.  WOO HOO!  
Happy Valentine's Day!  I'd love to hear about your wreaths - please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!

I've been looking for the perfect DIY Valentine's Day wreath (and one that I've got most of the stuff for already) and yours is PERFECT! I already have an undecorated wreath, scraps of burlap (made my first burlap banner two weeks ago), just got a Silhouette for Christmas, leftover rhinestones from our wedding decor, now all I have to do is find or make the pink flowers, pick out a sheet of card stock, and locate my pink ribbon. Thanks for sharing!!!

Hi Allison! Thanks for the sweet comment! I do love when I can make something with things I already have around from leftover projects - it makes my day too! Have fun and thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Cheryl

This is one of the sweetest wreaths out there. Those flowers are darling! I think it would look pretty all the way through spring!
