Do you guys normally decorate for Valentine's Day? I never have before, but I think it would be fun to have some sweet decor around the house to remind us all to give a little love.
I love those little conversation hearts and I love a good wreath, so I thought why not put these two loves together to create a new one. :)
I don't have a step-by-step tutorial for this one, but it was super duper easy to make. I started with a round wreath form that was flat on all sides (round and flat? LOL). Then I wrapped the wreath in strips of pink tissue paper. I hot glued on rows of Sweethearts on all sides and finished it off with a pink, satin ribbon.
I started gluing the hearts to the front first, then the inside, and finally the outside. It took about four 7 oz. bags of conversation hearts and about an hour and a half to complete. I just sat down in front of the TV and glued away.
I found that it was easiest to make one row of hearts all the way around the wreath, and then move on to the second and third rows (rather than gluing three across, then three below that row, and repeating the process all the way around the wreath).
I might have the sweetest wreath in town...literally! :) ...and on a side note, I'm pretty sure I got about 437 cavities while completing this project. :)
I'll be linking up to these SWEET parties! :)
