Modern Valentine's Wreath

I'm still moving forward with my modern Valentine's decorations.  You can see my Modern Banner here.  I love using black and white as my base and adding pops of color to it.  This wreath was very easy to make.


I am notorious for re-using wreaths.  I don't have room to keep every wreath I've ever made so I just reuse them when I need to.  I started by wrapping some modern black and white fabric that I bought years ago from Joann's.  I actually used this fabric for one of my very first sewing projects.  I just cut it into long strips (about 2 inches wide).  I used straight pins to pin it down.


Next I hand cut some hearts out of felt.  I made each one a little smaller than the previous one, layered them on top of each other and sewed down the middle.  Then I hot glued them to the wreath.


I wanted to add a little saying in the middle.  I bought these wooden pennants from Pick Your Plum a while ago.  And I have used them a ton.  What's great is you can just turn these over to the back side and reuse them.  Here's how you make these: pick out some paper, glue the pennants down, let them dry, cut them out with an x-acto knife, add some Thickers (or cut out some letters or use letter stickers) and string twine through them.


I used a piece of fabric to hang it up.  I like using ribbon to hang a wreath but I really love the cohesive look of using the same fabric.


What color scheme are you going with for Valentine's?  I'd love to see a link!

Thanks for stopping by.
