Heart Wreath


I saw this wreath over at Design Sponge and loved everything about it. But I took the idea and decided to make this felt heart wreath for my self.  It is the perfect Valentine’s Day Craft and although a bit time consuming…it really easy to make.

Valentine's-Decor

This wreath is so easy to make but can be a bit time consuming. My hubby was recently out-of-town on business. So, over a couple of evenings I was able to watch some chick flicks and put together this wreath.

valentine's-day

I bought my heart shaped foam wreath at JoAnn’s (Michaels might have them too). It was $4 and I used my 40% off coupon. I also purchased 3/4 yard (off the bolt) of a nice “velvety” colored red felt. I also picked up a package of straight pins.

I used a cup from my cupboard to make a 3 inch circle template. Then I cut SEVERAL 3 inch circles out of the felt. No I did not count them. Then I took a circle and folded it in half to make a half circle and folded it in half again like my little assistant is demonstrating.

Then take a straight pin and pin it through the bottom of the point. Then stick the pin with the felt into the styrofoam. Continue doing this placing each folded circle close together filling in the spaces. Continue the process for the whole wreath.

Valentine's-day-craft

You will not need to do this on the back of the wreath. Then I took a piece of ribbon (about 8 inches) and folded it into a loop and pinned it several times into the back of the wreath to hang it from. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!! This is such a fun and Valentine Heart that will made a great addition to your Valentine Decor.  In fact, I liked it so much I came up with some other projects like it. To see them you can go here:

  8. 8

    So, so pretty! I might have to give this a try myself! Thanks for the link too.

  9. 9

    I have been looking for one of these, or at least the tutorial on how to make one. Thank you, thank you for posting this! I even hunted high and low at Target for one the other day. All they had was one covered in fake roses. Not the same…now this looks like a project I can do.

  41. 41

    I can't wait to make this….was 3/4 yard enough? or did you need more?

  42. 42

    Thanks guys!

    I did not use all of the 3/4 yard. It was more like 1/2 yard that I used. But with the left-over 1/4 yard, I was able to make something that I will post later.

  43. 43

    This is FABULOUS, Amy! I have filed this in my valentines day post at thecraftersfilebox.com.

    I'm so happy to have found your blog! I love this heart wreath, and think it would be the perfect addition to my front door! I'd love to share a link to this post on sewwhattoday.blogspot.com on January 15!

  48. 48

    I love it! I was kinda freaked out to take this on. Thought it would take the better part of a week. It was done in a few hours. My husband thinks it looks professional. I used at least 3/4 a yard. Thanks for all your great ideas. I feel like a stalker cause I am making your lollipop cookies for my kids play date today.

  49. 49

    I saw your beautiful wreath featured on One Pretty Thing's blog – just had to come and see how it was made! Looks nice and easy – just the kind of projects I like! Your 'assistant' is as cute as can be! Thank you for sharing this tutorial. Have a great day.

  50. 50

    I love this so much I'm going to not grade papers and make the beautiful heart wreath instead! :) I'm linking this to my blog because it's such a cute idea. Love it!

  51. 51

    Totally random and off topic – but I just noticed your daugher's reindeer and polka dot pjs in one of the pictures – my 3 year old has the same ones from Target! She loves them! Anyway, going to attempt the heart wreath and a couple of topiaries tonight! Thanks for all your inspiration.

    I absolutely loved your Valentine Wreath and was inspired to do one myself. I took the idea of fabric from you and created my very own wreath out of grapevine wreaths. Check it out. http://www.mcmillanfam.com/2010/01/valentineeaster-wreath.html

    Adorable! I headed to the store and bought everything to make it today. I love felt so I know I can't go wrong! Thanks for the tutorial!

    Anonymous says:

    I was so inspired by yours that I made my own. I made mine in white. Used a soup can to make the circles (drew them with a crayola marker). But no mattter how carefully I drew there was some red residue left on the circles. So I oxycleaned the felt heart….. now (though it's still wet), it's beautiful.

  61. 61

    Hi Amy! Thanks for the email about your blog. I decided to take the plunge and start my own. I've posted a link to your heart wreath! Feel free to check it out!

    You did a GREAT job! My cousin followed your tutorial and hers looks fantastic too! Awesome job!

  64. 64

    I'm sad. I'm sad because I live in Canada and we don't have Joann's and I can't find a styrofoam heart wreath ANYWHERE. I've tried for two weeks and I'm about to give up. But I want you to know, I love the wreath I created in my mind…

  65. 65

    LOVE this, it's absolutely gorgeous! I'm going to link this post on my blog.

  66. 66

    I did my own and I adore it! Using a circle was better for me because I can put a different word in the middle of the wreath for different holidays/occasions and multi-task my decorating :) THanks for the inspirations!

    Just amde this. I hate to cut approximately 175 3" circles from the red felt for ample "volume" on my wreath. love how it turned out. I also first wrapped the styrofoam heart wreath in red grosgrain ribbon to ensure nothing was visible (and it looks nice from the inside of the window as well).

    I used this idea on pillows as well. I made two envelope pillowcases for our common area pillows. I then cut about 125 1.5-2" circles and sewed them on the pillowcase by hand in the same style. I love the texture this creates on a list sand colored pillowcase (matches the wall). Cant wait to finish the other one in time for V Day!

    Love it! Too bad all the Joann's are sold out of heart shaped foam wreaths. A worker there told me that they get about 12 calls/customers a day looking for the wreaths. I told her we all have probably seen your blog and are making them. Thanks for the great tutorial – I can't wait to make mine!

    @Lisa–Too funny! I was actually in JoAnn's yesterday getting some more felt for another round wreath I made with this same concept. the employee asked me if I was making a wreath from that blog!

    What size wreath form did you use?

  113. 114

    I LOVED this idea and just had to make myself one. I didn’t have felt or a heart shaped wreath on hand so I had to improvise but I loved the end result. Thanks for the idea and tutorial. :)

      So glad you were able to make on. Heading on over to check it out now. Thanks so much for sharing it with me. I love to see your projects too.

  114. 116

    LOVE, LOVE this wreath! Sadly, THREE craft stores later and I cannot fine a heart shaped wreath!

    • 117

      Oh no! They were pretty scarce last year too. Maybe you can find some online. I think JoAnn’s may sell some! Hope that helps!

  115. 118

    I am uber excited as I am making this wreath right now! TIP – A can of Green Giant Corn is the perfect template for a 3″ circle. I was finally able to find a heart wreath after hitting 5 craft stores!

  116. 119

    Wow, I love that wreath. It is adorable, and so is that baby!! Thanks for sharing.

    How did you put the pins through the point of the circle, through all four layers? I’m having a harzd time getting my pins to stay in. By the way I love this idea and I am making mine hot pink.

  121. 124

    Hi there,
    I had to post this heart on my FB and linked back to you to discourage someone from claiming it to be their sole idea! It worked thank you. Keep them coming

    SaraColorado says:

    This was a lot of fun to make. I had to construct my own heart shaped foam wreath though, with two round ones and some red duct tape. It turned out beautifully. I’m not an original crafty person, but I’m pleased I can at least copy others’ ideas and have them still turn out lovely. Thanks for the beautiful idea!

  123. 126

    you guys could also make a smaller version, or same size if you like, for a picture frame! it would make a perfect valentines day present for someone special!!!!

  124. 127

    Just finished cutting out all the circles! Whew! Now to pick up that silly wreath from Jo-ann’s. I checked several craft stores when my Jo-ann’s was already sold out of them (still no luck with Michael’s or Hobby Lobby). But now my Jo-ann’s finally got a new shipment. Yay! Can’t wait to hang it on my front door! :)

  125. 128

    Thanks for the idea/tuturial. I made mine using a 15 inch heart and LOVE it! Of course I sent folks your way for the details. Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for Sharing ~ This Is just beautiful

    This might be a really silly question… but what did you trace the felt circles with that is so perfectly not visible?

    Thanks!

    Found this cute wreath on Pinterest and actually recreated it this weekend. Love it!

    I blogged it and of course linked the credit over here to you. Check it out if you’d like.

    THANK YOU for sharing the tutorial! I made my own last night and love it! I couldn’t find as big of a strofoam heart as I would have liked but it still turned out! I love it! Thank you again!

  131. 134

    I wonder if I could just sew it into the foam with thread instead of using all those straight pins. I think I’m going to try it and report back with how it goes. Thanks for posting! Very Creative!

    This is such a beautiful heart! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks so much for sharing these instructions! I found them via Pinterest and made a pastel pink wreath with splashes of bright pink. :) https://twitter.com/#!/ehodge/status/165571177018957824/photo/1

    Thanks for the very creative wreath idea. I am NOT crafty at all but have already made three. And the recipients loved them!

      Yay! I am so glad to hear that. Love when my readers have great success making something and love it even more when they share it with me!

  135. 140

    Love this wreath! Question: What size wreath did you use? 12″? 15″? I am so excited to make this!

  136. 141

    Is felt by the yard different than the squares I just picked up in the craft department at walmart?

    • 142

      Well, they are the same thing but just in different lengths. You can usually get more felt for your money when it is on the bolt (or sold by the yard) as opposed to buying the squares…but the squares can be convenient. But there is no reason you couldn’t use the felt squares. It will turn out exactly the same.

    Love it. You make something hard look easy

    LOVE this. I’m going to the store now and Getting these things to make one. Thanks for sharing step by step and showing your great work.

  140. 146

    Do you think the straight pins hold as well as the push pins?

  141. 147

    Can you tell me did you do the back of the Felt heart also? Thank you.

  142. 149

    Found this last night on Pinterest and wasting no time making it all today (with the help of a certain 7 year old!). I LOVE it and can’t wait for Valentine’s Day to display it. I didn’t mention, but I am not crafty AT ALL and I got this done in about 5 interrupted hours – one afternoon!! No one should be afraid to give it a try!!

  143. 150

    Hi Amy! I love this felt heart wreath. I’ve got the supplies and I’m dying to get started! I just had a few questions. Did you use regular straight pins? Did the felt circles stay folded when you pinned them in or did you have to glue the circles before pinning them? Thanks so much!

  144. 152

    Oh, goodness. This is lovely. Maybe if I start now it will be done by V-day! Thanks for the post!

  145. 153

    I love this Valentines Day wreath! I am actually bringing this one to make at our neighborhood Craft/Girls Night.

    Thanks for sharing!

  146. 154

    Loved the wreath unfortunately could not find the heart shaped steroform to make one

  147. 155

    This was so easy. I loved it!

  148. 156

    I made this and it looks great! I was hoping to hang it on my front door but am wondering if you knew of a way to keep it from fading in the sunlight? Thanks!!

  149. 157

    I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this
    post is written by him as no one else know such detailed
    about my problem. You are wonderful! Thanks!

  150. 158

    What Does the back turn out to look like??

  151. 159

    I love this wreath. I have searched high and low for the heart shaped form and can’t find any where. I don’t have a Holly Lobby near me. I searched Michael’s and JoAnn’s and A.C. Moore. Any suggestions?

    I love EVERYTHING about this wreath!!!

They were advertising 50% a single cut of fabric, add that in with my 15% teacher discount; I paid less than $10 for the entire  craft. Tracing and cutting out the circles was a bit time consuming, but it turned out so cute! I added some pink and red heart shaped ribbon to the back and hung it from the top of the mirror. You can find the tutorial for the wreath HERE. […]

  57. […] (source) Super cute, right?!?! Well, it was my mission to make it happen. So, I went to my new favorite store, JoAnn’s, and purchased all of my supplies. Supplies Needed: Styrofoam heart box of straight pins 1 1/2 yards of felt (I purchased 1/2 of pink, 1/2 of red, & 1/2 of white) scissors 3 inch circle template (I used the base of a small cup) pencil or pen Steps: 1. I used the base of a small cup that I had in my cabinet and made circles using a pen. 2. Then, I cut them out with scissors. I didn’t count how many I cut out, but I thought I had enough the first time and had to cut more. 3. I marked where I wanted each color to start, but I decided to deviate from my original plan. So, more outlines were needed. 4. Then, I took one of the circles, folded it in half once, and then folded it in half again. Then, I grabbed a straight pin and pushed it through the bottom of the circle and into the Styrofoam heart. I repeated this process until the whole heart was completely covered. Make sure to layer them, so there isn’t any white Styrofoam showing through. And, here is the final result! Not too shabby for my first Styrofoam project.  Now, I just have to find a place to hang it. I will show you where I decided to hang it when I post about my Valentine’s decorations. : ) Happy Decorating,  […]
