the wreath I did for Christmas last year. I love it so much that I was sad to take it down, so I decided to make it interchangeable. I removed the ornaments, ribbon and the G and added some heart garland, beads and new ribbon to make it new. I'm so excited to be able to keep this on my door for 3 months instead of 5 weeks! I wonder if I can convert it to St. Patty's Day- any suggestions?
Here is how I did it...
Large Old Picture Frame- painted in desired color
beads- beaded trim, bead garland and mardi gras beads
felt- pink and red
ribbon- thin for the garland and thick to hang
Sewing machine and coordinating thread
hot glue gun
pin, I made the heart garland for the wreath. To make the heart garland, Cut felt so you have two 3 x 8 pieces. Stack and sew along one long side.
Sew along the ends to close the heart.
Take a length of thin ribbon and a needle with a large eye and string the garland. You need to bring the needle through each side, catching the middle so the heart keeps it's shape on the string.
As for the rest of the wreath, I just strung the beads across the back and used hot glue and tacks to help secure them in place.
I also added this heart that I did with an applique pattern on my embroidery machine.
I placed a hook on the opposite side of the door to hold the wreath in place.
I hope this inspires you to do your own Valentine's Day Decor!
