Hello friends! Hope this finds you doing good.
I did tell you that I am going to be in a Valentine’s Blog Hop February 1st didn’t I? That being said you will see a lot of Valentine’s crafting from me. I have to get my decorations lined up for the big day! Since we are doing our blog hop before Valentine’s maybe you will get an inspirational push to put out a little love decor for Valentine’s.
Today’s blog I am so excited to share with you how I made this heart shape ribbon wreath. It was a lot of fun making it.
Let’s get started.
What I used:
- A piece of foam board or something to make your heart form.
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- stapler and staples
- ribbon ( I used several)
- heart jewels
- battery operated lights
Most of everything was purchased from The Dollar Tree.
I made a heart template and traced it on the foam board. I made another heart inside using 1 inch from the outer heart. I cut both lines.
Now we need to cut the ribbons. I cut 12″ pieces. I just cut all the ribbon I had for this project.
I used 4 different thin ribbon. I made the 12 inch strips into a heart and stapled the loops together. I did this to all of the thin ribbon.
Now it is time to make my wreath.
I took the three wider ribbon and alternated the pink and the neutral burlap out. I placed the sheer ribbon on top of the burlap and tied it onto the heart. Do this until you have the board covered.
I found some thin crepe paper ribbon. I tied it in a not between the burlap ribbons.
I added my heart shape ribbon to the wreath. I hot glued each color on the crepe paper knot. I added a pink twine bow and a heart jewel.
I decided I wanted to add lights to my wreath. I grabbed my battery operated lights and placed them on the wreath.
Here is my wreath and the candles that I shared with my Facebook friends!
Can you tell that I glued the two together? Let me know what you think below in the comments.
This isn’t how I will be using my wreath or candles but like how they both look there! Did you check out my pink candle holders? They are book ends that I found years ago at a thrift store for $1.00. They use to be brown then turquoise…..and now pink. I just love spray paint!
Without the lights on.
Thank you for visiting me. I hope you enjoyed learning how to make a heart shape ribbon wreath. I will be displaying the wreath, candles and my heart and pom-pom garland February 1.
Have a great Thursday friends!
Stay Strong and Stay Blessed!
