I’m decorating my porch for Valentine’s Day and I want to create a fun heart wreath for my front door. I recently purchased some felt pom pom garland from Home Goods that I thought would be fun to add to a wreath. You can find heart shape wreaths but we can easily create a wreath form from cardboard.
The supplies I will be using are:
2. Chunky yarn
3. Hot glue
4. Paper for a pattern
7. Box cutter
You will want to cut a heart pattern out of paper.
Once you have your heart cut out you will want to cut out the center. I used a tape measure to mark off 2 1/2 inches from the edge of the heart pattern.
I will be using the outer piece of the heart to create my wreath form.
You will trace the pattern onto the cardboard and then cut it out.
Once you have your heart form cut out of the cardboard you will then start adding the chunky yarn.
I added some hot glue to hold the beginning in place.
You will continue to wrap the yarn around the cardboard.
I added a small amount of hot glue to hold the end in place.
You can leave the heart as is but I decided to add a few felt pom poms to it.
I cut the pom pom garland and glued a few of the pom poms onto the wreath.
I have a covered porch so I will be hanging this wreath on my front door. This makes a great Valentine decoration and can be hung any where in your home. I hope you will have fun and give this a try.
